Apple woes: Time for fungicide

The recent Mac security vulnerabilities and antitrust concerns about iTunes pale in comparison to the accounting problems that Apple fessed up to this afternoon.

Apple warned investors that earnings back to 2002 may be restated and said an outside lawyer has been hired to investigate its options scandal. If press releases had sound effects, this one would have the awful thunk of an iPod dropped onto a concrete floor.

Mac fans may not care about the business problems, but it will be interesting to see whether Steve Jobs still has the swagger when he goes on stage next week at Apple’s big developer conference in San Francisco.
