It's been a busy week for security vulnerabilities. ZombieLoad affects all recent Intel processors, and Apple has issued a fix for it. A serious WhatsApp vulnerability made the evening news because it was so dangerous. And Google and Microsoft had a few issues as well.

How We Use Facebook

2019-05-1000:33:21

We look at an issue that caused Firefox add-ons to not work for a while, and discuss a suggestion about making Apple's AirDrop more secure. Then we discuss how we use Facebook, and why we don't use it much any more (and perhaps why you should rethink how you use the service).

Apple has updated Xprotect; what is this? Facebook bans quizzes and useless apps; finally. And we take a close look at MDM software, and how Apple has taken measures against apps that use this technology.

Macs last a long time, but whatever your needs, you’ll need to upgrade your Macs eventually.
