With the new version of Parallels being released I’ve been playing around more with Virtual Machines and I thought it was time for me to discuss the advantages and how I use them.

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 095. Ken emailed me in a slight panic and why wouldn’t he? His son had deleted Angry Brids from his iPad and took 2 years of progress and game data away in the process. But Ken’s misfortune is our gain because it sent me on a quest to see how we can hack, explore, and recover iOS files and data all without the need to jailbreak.
