I work in the IT/Marketing/Social fields, a Culture Vulture in heart and an one part geek in a all-rounder way!

@mcdemarco Good to know, thanks!

How the KRACK attack destroys nearly all Wi-Fi security [arstechnica.com]
Some good info on how.
@joe
@mcdemarco You do have a good point, plus there's a ton of payments being made to companies to hold onto the older software. Mostly governments and businesses.
@joe
@mcdemarco @olszowka I see all of that in terms of their PR. although realistically, it's basically three major OS years before it experiences sluggish software. I used to have a 5 for 4 years and it basically was mostly unusable once I got to iOS 9.
@joe
@mcdemarco Very much true, which is why I'm hoping for Project Treble to succeed in the long term. May not be a full solution but it's probably the best they got to address that.
@joe
@mcdemarco Probably, and that's what Apple and Android OEMs get for planned obsolescence on all of their phones. I know some people go with two or three year old phones these days or devices with two or three year old OSes. Not good either way.

@joe
I'm sure the weeks ahead are Patch Weeks for everyone.
@joe
@mcdemarco @33MHz If not at all in some cases with older Android and iOS devices. Remember the iPhones 5 and 5C aren't getting updates anymore for example.
@joe
Exploits, called KRACK, in Wi-Fi security protocol WPA2 open traffic to eavesdropping, connection hijacking, and malicious injection; US CERT advisory issued [arstechnica.com]
It basically affects every OS and connectivity. Hope fixes are incoming besides Windows.
@joe
@goldenskye Hope you have fun! Is she younger or older than you?
@joe
If you have a US mobile carrier, they're likely selling your data to government agencies, law enforcement, and many others with no oversight [medium.com]
Huge abuse of privacy, and there's nothing you can do about it sadly.
@joe
@doctorlinguist I have a Pixel XL and so far, no major issues rather than a random reset when it gets too hot. Hope that this issue isn't a fatal one.
@joe
@igmp_join Should go for decaf with a bit of cream. I do that!
@joe
@jacobrealo I agree, it's stupid and I feel the ratings system should be overhauled to reflect this.
@joe
@jacobrealo Most US retailers refuse to sell any content with that rating so yeah looks like it's too hot for TV and film.
@joe
@jacobrealo Plus I have heard they closed on Sundays which is rare int he food industry. Also they opened quite a few locations around where I live so culture being challenged.
@joe
@jws The main reason I asked is because there's a few new locations opening up in New York State and their culture has to be questioned since New York isn't a forgiving state for that particular culture. Yeah, there are much better options out there.
@joe
@jws I forgot I even have that app, Hopefully the posting issues are behind them.
