I'm a Mac user and I have the mobile authenticator on my iPhone. I do this for several reasons:1) I'm not such an elitist noodleloaf to think that the Mac is impenetrable. The only thing faster than the speed of light is the rate at which some zit-farming hacker will try to smash any OS for a chance at getting the $16.73 in my bank account instead of applying those leet skillz to a six-figure career at NASA.2) I weighed the options: having to get up and walk three feet to "go get my phone" every time I log in (easily remedied by keeping my phone near my computer, duh) FAR outweighs the risk of my toons ending up naked in Goldshire, doing the "Broke-butt Shuffle".3) I like Core-Hounds. A LOT. Core-Hound p-yuppies are made of concentrated cute and win. Don't judge me.4) I don't like calling ANYONE for support. I'm sure the nice folks at the Blizzard call-center are just fine, but I'm that guy that will go weeks with a tree stump of a splinter in my tuchus until I can get tweezers long enough to pull it out myself.Fact is, Macs are very stable, and very secure, but the only thing more certain than Mac security is the fallibility of that security. Justin Long SEEMS trustworthy, but he was in "Accepted", too...*shiver*.
