Damage Control Begins RE: Intel Hardware Bug

Intel is in full damage control mode about their hardware flaw….unfortunately they are trying to drag AMD down with them….however AMD is vulnerable only in its older CPU products.  Their latest product, XEN(or Ryzen) is not affected as of right now. This is an issue Intel created on its own…and the software development community went along for the ride for the sake of performance. Tomorrow…the full details should come out tomorrow..three CVE’s have already been […]


Apple Values Your Privacy…Not Really.

We all know google mines everything..that’s been well established by Google themselves.  We knew Apple mined our data and “keeps it private”.  I always called BS on their privacy stance…Here’s the proof: http://www.zdnet.com/article/uber-app-can-silently-record-iphone-screens-researcher-finds/ Still think Apple values your privacy?  I put this squarely on Apple as they did not have to give up this priveldge to Uber….they chose to.  The security implications are huge as a single weakness in the Uber app effectively gives you […]



Caution: The Latest IOS and MACOS Update Carries a ...

The new file system is called APFS(Apple File System).  The previous filesystem is 31 years old called HFS(Hierarchical File System).  HFS was originally designed for the floppy disk era and got modified for regular […]


Apple WWDC thoughts and hardware End of Life announcements for ...

I have watched the WWDC keynote from Apple twice so far and I am going to watch it again.  There are some very compelling features for the ecosystem.  I watched the Twit coverage of the keynote(after I watched it live) and even Leo who is a big fan expressed concerns over the large amount of lockin that Apple is continuing to do.  I have always been leery of Apple for its lockin but I do […]



FBI Granted Motion to Vacate Tomorrow’s Hearing Against Apple. ...

The FBI has asked and been granted a motion to postpone their hearing tomorrow claiming somebody from outside the government has shown them a possible way to unlock the Iphone of the San Bernardino shooter.  Now comes the real question.  Have they truly found a way or are they trying to scare Apple into doing something stupid?  With how often the government has blatantly lied in this standoff I think this is nothing more than a […]


The Truth Finally Comes Out..The FBI Screwed Up.

Apple vs. the FBI continues.  Now the FBI admits what i suspected all the time..the FBI screwed up and were asking for Apple to bail them out.  Unfortunatly most of the data is toasty now.  We will see what actually comes of this now. The head of the FBI admitted today his agents made a “mistake” after finding an iPhone left behind by one of the San Bernardino, California, shooters — a misstep he […]

My IOS Experiment is Over

Why I am moving to an Iphone 6+

Hold onto your seats folks I am dropping a bombshell…I have purchased and am awaiting arrival of…my new Iphone6+. Not the S but the first 6. Why? There isn’t an android manufacturer i either want to deal with or trust. Case in point:  Samsung has crappy hardware and horrid software.  Plus their crappy software vacums up more data as well. Motorola is now owned by Lenovo which has been caught TWICE installing trojans onto their […]


IOS 8.4: It’s a mess that effectively steals your ...

There are quite a few businesses that allow this software on their machines.  I would HIGHLY advise Itunes be removed from ALL company pc’s immediately and never be allowed to return. Just read this excerpt: The whole iTunes Match and Apple Music thing is confusing. Apple says they are “independent but complementary,” and, on first glance, they look quite similar. But when you look closely, they are very different. Both match your iTunes library and […]
