McAfee Internet Security Dual Protection for MAC a&hellip by McAfee

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well the twist is that the software runs on both a Mac and Windows machine so it covers two bases which is good plus the interface is more or less identical. No doubt anti-virus software is vital for Windows machines. I'm less certain about this for Macs and have never discovered a virus on any of my Macs. Better safe than sorry though.

Others have commented on the lack of a CD contained in the pack but with fewer and fewer machines having DVD readers I think this makes sense.

The software seems to do the job though I have a feeling that all the main stream anti-virus software will provide the protection you… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding keyboard, 13 April 2014
Without doubt this is the best bluetooth keyboard I have seen for the iPad Air. Stylistically it marches the Air perfectly being made of high-quality aluminium reflecting the same quality of the Air itself. It is also exceptionally light so adds minimal weight when carrying both items around. In terms of functionality the Air sits very securely indeed into a groove built into the keyboard. Whilst the angle at which the Air sits cannot be adjusted Iíve found it perfect for typing. It also acts as a good desk stand when youíre not using the Air. It should be noted though that the keyboard is best used on a desk, not on your lap because of the nature of the way the Air is fixed to it, and the… Read more
