Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2018-01-05

Happy New Year, everyone!

For those who follow the Gregorian way of counting trips around the sun, anyway.

2018 is certainly not starting slowly. We got a good look at Secure Boot in the iMac Pro thanks to Tim Perfitt. And then we got two major security problems, endearingly called ‘Meltdown’ and ‘Spectre’.

I do not have any ads on my webpage or this newsletter. However, if you want to support me and this website, then please consider buying one (or both) of my books. (Imagine it’s like a subscription fee, but you also get one or two useful books on top!)

If you have already bought and read the books, please leave a review on the iBooks Store. Reviews are important to help new potential readers make the purchase decision. Thank you (again)!
