The latest edition of “MacNotables” (http://www.macnotables.com/wordpress/), a podcast that serves as home to Mac personalities who will comment on the latest news and opinions in the Mac community, is available.
Security expert Rich Mogull discusses the wave of spam email messages that purport to be Apple order confirmations for iPads, apps and more. He shares his advice on how to avoid getting caught in this trap and other similar receipt email schemes, and outlines some ways to practice safer computing for online banking by using dedicated or virtual machines. Mogull also helps make sense of some of the security-related headlines relating to Apple software vulnerabilities, and the hacking of Macs, iPhones, and virtually all other platforms.
“MacNotables” panelists include Christopher Breen, Bryan Chaffin, Jim Dalrymple, Adam Engst, Tonya Engst, Andy Ihnatko, Joiner, Ted Landau, Jason Snell, Bob LeVitus, Dan Frakes and Yours Truly. Not all panelists can make all shows due to scheduling conflicts.
