Hilarious. Google releases a Chrome software update that destroys the Apple file system. That’s just great Google. Create a browser update that can destroy the computer it loads on.
All those users in Hollywood that had the issue had apparently disabled Apple’s protection that prevents things like this from happening. What were they thinking?
Imagine this happening with the future $60,000 Mac Pro. Heads would roll. I know some Post houses here in Hollywood that never went for the Ashcan to begin with – and they are up and running today with complete Avid suite. Weird. ⏚
