A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 196. Whenever a tech story comes up that involves security there are often a lot of industry specific terms thrown around. When that happens sites don’t often take the time to explain phrases like “backdoor” or “encryption”. I thought it might be helpful to have just a basic background in terms you might hear when stories like this come up. Our friend George Starcher joins me to go over this basic security glossary.

Maccast Members 195 – Adaptation

Written by: Adam Christianson

A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 195. I’ve been thinking lately about adaptation. Not the 2002 movie starring Nicholas Cage, but the need or ability to change in response to the imposed conditions. There are many reasons I’ve been pondering this and I thought it could make a good starting point for us to have a conversation, so that’s what I’m going to do in this episode.
