The heat shield is off and the supersonic parachute is deployed – this episode of the CultCast is ready for touchdown!
On this new ep., we ponder the Mars Curiosity Rover, and how a team full of Mac users landed it safely on another world.
Then, let us regale you with the tale of how one very well-known tech writer got all his devices erased when hackers stole his Apple ID. It’s a scary story, but to comfort you, we’ll tell you how you can better protect your datas from getting thieved, and which backup strategies we use to keep ours safe from harm.
And finally, Facebook questions! You told us what you wanted us to cover on our new Facebook page, and we’re ready to work for you!
Show notes ahead!
