There's lots of fake news and just because something is widely reported doesn't make it true. It was
widely reported that North Korea funded wannacry.
 Tax dollars and pounds have been used to support wars and no one likes wars do they ?

If you use Applepay or the andriod equivalent, but it depends what meant by handle finances.

It's difficult to educate the ignorant and even more difficult to educate that that don't know they
are ignorant.

But at least they are happier and correct.

But they aren't going to look into it  Mayayana has proved that.

They'll never be able to work out why no Mac users have been infected 
by a virus aimed at PCs.

The fact that generaly speaking Mac users are more likely to have a higher 'disposable' income,
because if they can 'waste' money on an expensive mac they are likely to have more money to spend so
why not target mac users for money rather than PC users who can't or won't spend money to protect
Or it could be that Mac users are more inteligent and that is why wannacry didn't affect mac users
but did W98 users.

Yes, but for most Word is the target application in the past.
Even in todays world more studetns ask me if word is on the PCs than any other app.
