With so many people writing about Apple, finding the best stories and reports isn’t easy.┬áHere’s our daily pick of stories about the company from around the web that you shouldn’t miss:

  • Mac users, beware: the invulnerability of OS X machines is a myth. Get ready for more “botnets, drive-by downloads, and mass malware from here on out,” says Ars Technica’s Jacqui Cheng.
  • ZDNet Australia is appropriately confused by Apple’s claim that 3G and 4G are essentially the same thing. Apple has come under fire for calling its new iPad the “iPad Wi-FI + 4G” even in countries like Australia where only 3G networks are in operation.
  • TIME TechLand calls Apple SVP Phil Schiller a “snob” for ditching Instagram after the service opened up to millions of Android users earlier this month.
  • The iPhone launches on five more U.S. carriers Friday — none of which are T-Mobile. 9to5Mac has the list.
  • Remember that rumor that Tim Cook was wandering around Valve’s headquarters last week? Yeah, that didn’t happen, Valve’s CEO said on a podcast called Seven Day Cooldown.
