Regret: Unable to attend… A series of unfortunate events has made it impossible for us to bring you The Checklist today. We’ll be back with you next week - Lord willing and the creek don’t rise… in the meantime, I will ask you if you have a question you want to ask us. 

We love doing this show. For me personally, it’s fun finding stories that we can look at and say, “How can we make ourselves safer?” Then talking about ways to do that! Do you have questions along those lines? We would love to tackle them: the email address is Checklist@SecureMac.com. If you’re worried that your question is easy or dumb, don’t be. If something’s confusing or worrying you, it’s probably bothering someone else, too. You could help them by posing your question: Checklist@SecureMac.com

We are sorry to miss today… and we look forward to talking with you again next week.

- Puppy Pictures Preempt Privacy 

- The returning spectre of Spectre 

- eFail

- What does Apple know about you?
