New MacBook Pro!

MacBook Pro 2018Apple has released new versions of the 13" and 15" MacBook Pro and they are substantial improvements indeed. After years of requests the 15" model can now handle up to 32 GB of RAM has an option for a 6-core processor. Not to be outdone, the 13" model jumps from dual core to quad core. And both models get particular attention paid to their keyboard which have been a source of complaints over the last two models regarding both noise and dirt. These issues appear to have been well addressed. We are looking forward to getting one of our own (but we are going to miss the "clack, clack, clack of our 2016 model).

Anti-Phishing Action Guide

FishingAs evidenced by our recent Service Bulletin regarding the infamous "sextortion" phishing emails, Phishing is a real problem on a daily basis. We are bomabarded by clever phishing attacks from bad guys pretending to be our friends, our colleagues, and our banks. Isn't there something we can do? A colleqgue's recent observation that there IS one thing true in these emails and that is the bitcoin address of the bad guy. That has to be real or they could never get out money. It made me realize that there is something we can do. We have put together a little Anti-Phishing Action Guide and it is available on our web site.
