Recorded 17th September 2017
This week Cassini made its final manoeuvre and crashed into Saturn ending its 13 year scientific mission, some muppets set off a bomb in the Parson’s Green Tube Station injuring 29 people (some of them children) but thankfully there were no fatalities and Apple held a small gathering at their new Steve Jobs Theatre to announce some new shiny toys.
Mark is off in Budapest enjoying a relaxing break from it all. So in his absence I am joined by Sherman Gossett (Commander Shroom) from Utah, Ruth (@CutieMelon321) and, at incredibly short notice, Guy Searle (@MacParrot) from the My Mac Show. We, of course, give our reactions to the Apple Event, and some other stuff – because, well, what else would we be doing on a podcast?
I am especially pleased to welcome Sherman to this episode because he is most definitely NOT an Apple fanboy – but he has a wealth of experience in the world of IT and we look forward to getting an “outsider's” view on the Apple announcements.
And I am really sorry that in all the confusion, with Wire dropping people out all over the place, that I forgot to thank our Patreon subscribers... so “THANK YOU Patreon people, you really are lovely people!”
This explains some more about BlueBorne - and I now realise there is more to it than just the obvious Andriod/iOS/Windows/Mac/Linux angle...
Although Google didn't launch it's actual website/search engine until September 27, 1998
I could only find the 6/6S version on Amazon.co.uk (http://amazon.co.uk/) for £29.99 GBP
Doesn't seem to be available in the UK Amazon store.
Grumpy Old Geeks – a look at “what went wrong on the internet this week and who is to blame” (and a lot more stuff too)
The Cyberwire – a daily podcast on the threats out there in cyberspace – interesting if a little scary sometimes.
