NC #629 Rogue Amoeba Gold Standard, Ricoh Next Gen Theta S, QA for All the Things, Security Bits

Bart and I pushed out a new episode of Taming the Terminal in both the Chit Chat Across the Pond Taming the Terminal feeds. I’ll tell you why Rogue Amoeba is the gold standard of customer support. Then we’ll hear about Ricoh’s next generation 360 camera. I’ll then go on a rant of all of the quality assurance work I’ve done for so many companies in the last few weeks, including AirPods, iPads Pro, iPad Pro keyboards, Ring video software and website, Apple Watch activity sharing, Screenflow and even macOS. Bart Busschots is back with a new edition of Security Bits. He explains subtleties of the WannaCry ransomeware that I’ve heard nowhere else, then he explains how Apple is going to institute a requirement for app-specific passwords for third party apps with access to your iCloud calendar, contacts and mail. Very important listening.

We have a huge show today. Steve’s put out two more video interviews from NAB in Las Vegas, I’ve got a pretty big announcement about Chit Chat Across the Pond, and we’ve got another giant Security Bits with Bart Busschots. I told him maybe when there’s such a big security news week we should call it Security Blobs!

There are five Security Mediums in this episode. We’ll talk about a remote code execution built in Intel CPUs, Bart will explain what can go wrong with two-factor authentication through SMS, we’ll cover the Google Docs phishing worm and how Google could have prevented it, we’ll learn about how the beloved Handbrake servers got hacked causing distribution of malware, and as if that isn’t enough we’ll talk about the WannaCry worm that has indiscriminately taken down networks across the globe.
