inThirty 137 – Getting into the Conference

Chaim had to interrupt his Passover Sedar to sign up for Google I/O. Why would he do that when he could just have waited until later that night? Well in a weird series of events, Chaim was trying to beat the algorithm and get ahead of others on the I/O lottery.

This topic came from a recent episode of ATP.fm where Marco, John, and Casey explain the best ways for doing this. There show is two hours, ours is thirty minutes. While they are all smarter than us, we break it down in a “more fun way.”

Security 12 – [Explicit] NSA Gets the iOS7 Treatment (Part 3 of Many)

We had a great show for you, but once again, news that couldn’t wait popped up. Once again we talk about what is going on with the NSA revelations. The big news is that iOS devices could potentially have malware that sends the data back to Utah. While only a physical attack, remote attacks ‘are coming soon.’

Next, your new laptop may have been intercepted by the NSA while in transit. Hardware modifications to send back data could have been installed.

Finally, we don’t know what is safe anymore. ¬†We do know that most devices have some sort of back door.
