Good Morning, Your Mac Keeps A Log Of All Your Downloads

Macgasm - The terminal is a pretty powerful tool in Mac OS X. Hardcore server nuts can fly through preferences and settings tweaks without ever touching a GUI. Then there are some things you can do in the Terminal that are just straight out important. This is likely one of the latter, though it does present a bit of a privacy issue. According to OS X Daily the Launch Services quarantine keeps a list of every file you’ve ever downloaded on your Mac, as that’s what triggers the warning dialog about opening files from the Internet. Oddly enough, even if you’ve disabled this in the command line, the database is still keeping track. (Mac, PC hardware)

Course if you don't download porn or download illegal stuff their ain't no issue. Sure there will be Windows equivalent but they just haven't found it yet.

So what would be your come back for this http://log.nadim.cc/?p=78

My comeback would be that this is not an equivalent. What I download and what I install are two separate things.

I freaking hate windows 8 anyway, if I wanted a crappy tablet I'd buy a crappy tablet.

Oh no! If my Mac has a problem, there will be a log to help! OH NOES 1984 NWO

(I don't own a mac, but my point remains)
