Earlier this year I gave a talk about protecting yourself online at a privacy conference to a mostly non-technical audience. I discuss privacy concepts, what makes a good password and how to create one, real password cracking examples, OSINT, finding a location from a photo, and other interesting tidbits that the average non-technical computer user may not know or think about.
It’s been a little over three months since I’ve been using my iPhone full time, so I figured it was time to provide an update to the original post (The Perfect Cell Phone (for Me) Doesn’t Exist. Or… Why I Finally Broke Down and Bought an iPhone) with my thoughts. So, has anything changed? Well I still hate Apple. But the iPhone… is significantly better than the last time I tried to use one.
I hate Apple. I don’t like the company. I don’t like their business practices (for the most part), and I’m not a real big fan of their UI/UX/interface design either. At home, I run everything on Linux, with the exception of a Windows desktop I use for gaming. I like knowing what my systems are doing, and being able to get into the guts of things to fix them if needed.
