Why iPhone owners should turn off AirDrop. Now.

mashable.com/article/apple-air

Security researchers exploring AirDrop, the iOS and macOS feature that lets users wirelessly share files via WiFi and Bluetooth, reported Wednesday on a flaw they say exposes users' emails and phone numbers. Unless you want every creep on the street to be able to secretly grab your contact info, it's a bit of a nightmare.

@adz 🍀 I hope you sorted this out but I know the multiple AppleID thing is very thorny. My gambit of running Arch on my MacBook is going ok 🤞🏾

Has anyone ever done a clean wipe and reinstall of OSX if (possibly) the AppleID that was used to initially install the OS is not the same one that is present now? This has been the most epically frustrating experience of my life (OK, maybe only the last year or so).

Clean up the web!

Developers, it’s time for you to choose a side: will you help rid the web of privacy-invading tracking or be complicit in it?

So I have an announcement. I sent an email to my work saying that I wanted to be able to focus on my work on taking advancing the federated social web to the next level. Read: better security / abuse resistance, richer interactions, virtual worlds.

How will I be funded to do this? I don't know. I do know that the state of the political world scares me enough that I feel I have to do this. If you want to support me: patreon.com/cwebber

Wish me luck. More updates soon.
