This way, this show was drafted on MyMac instead of being published … Sorry – This week Simon had problems with iCloud, Facebook and Google had problems with Apple, and Apple had problems with FaceTime. Serious criminals lose in the phone system's backbone to attack banks, governments keep trying to get into each other's conversations, and the thing's internet can be an even worse security threat than you ever thought. Meanwhile, guest Guy Serle of the MyMac podcast has problems with himself with some shelves. Apple's "horrible, horrible, not good, very bad quarter" may be down on estimates, but remains the second largest quarter they've ever had … but all bad news is all there is.
