iOS 9.3.5 Addresses Critical Security Vulnerabilities

iOS 9.3.5 on iPad.jpg

Apple released iOS 9.3.5 on Thrusday, August 25, 2016 to address numbers of Critical Security Vulnerabilities.

Both Citizenlab and Lookout were credited for the security fix.

Persistent, enterprise-class spyware is an underestimated problem on mobile devices. However, targeted attack scenarios against high-value mobile users are a real threat.

Citizen Lab (Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto) and Lookout have uncovered an active threat using three critical iOS zero-day vulnerabilities that, when exploited, form an attack chain that subverts even Apple’s strong security environment. We call these vulnerabilities “Trident.” Our two organizations have worked directly with Apple’s security team, which was very responsive and immediately fixed all three Trident iOS vulnerabilities in its 9.3.5 patch.

It is imperative to update any affected iOS devices to iOS 9.3.5.

T-Mobile One, Unlimited Voice, Text and Data.

T-Mobile One

T-Mobile:

The first line is $70 a month, the second is $50 a month, and additional lines are only $20 a month up to 8 lines with auto pay. And it’s just $5 more a month per line without auto pay.

Most T-Mobile are paying under $70 per-month for 1-3 GB data.

You can also add your tablet to T-Mobile ONE for just $20 a tablet per month and get Unlimited LTE data on that device too. That’s the nation’s first and only unlimited LTE data offer for tablets!

For $20, T-Mobile customers don’t have to worry about running up their data. It’s $10 more than what they pay for MatchPhoneData Up to 5GB.

T-Mobile ONE will unleash unlimited on September 6 at T-Mobile stores nationwide and t-mobile.com for postpaid customers.

Somehow that date is really close to an Apple Event.

Metallica: Silver goes the Black Album

Metallica Black Album CD

Metallica released its biggest selling album on August 12, 1991; that’s twenty-five years ago to the date. Metallica’s self-titled album, spawned five singles:

  1. “Enter Sandman”
  2. “The Unforgiven”
  3. “Nothing Else Matters”
  4. “Wherever I May Roam”
  5. “Sad But True”

“The Black Album” as it is commonly referred to, went on to sell more than 16 million copies as of August, 2015 in the United States alone. Per Wikipedia article, It has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. In February, 2016 “The Black Album” was selling about 5,000 units per week; better than many newly released records that month.

“The Black Album” was the record that helped Metallica break into the mainstream music scene.

On May 7, 2012 Metallica performed “The Black Album” in its entirety from the last song to the first in Prague, Czech Republic.

I still play songs from the record to this day as it is one of my all time favorite along with the first four Metallica records.

Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty

IMG_0990

I tried out Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci Signature Guitar Majesty some few months ago at a local guitar store and I really liked it. I have been a fan of Dream Theater and John Petrucci since my radio days in the 1990’s.

My first choice was the Polar Noir model (black). I always like guitars in neutral colors such as black. Then I saw the Iced Crimson model (red); I like it too. Why not add bold colors to my seemingly all-black gears.

Fast forwards a few months, I finally saw the Arctic Dream model (as pictured above) in person. The color-shifting paint-job is amazing. Under certain lighting and viewing angle it is radiating the color green, purple and sometimes black.

For a brief moment, I thought that I should get a 7-string model; as it would have been the first in my arsenal. I then decided to get the 6-string model.

Just a few days ago, an Arctic Dream Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty was delivered to my office. It will take me sone times to get familiar with this San Luis Obispo, USA-made instrument.
