  • Apple's powerful new Mac mini perfectly suits the 'Pro' market, yet the complaints have al...

    I do swift and web-technologies development. I have been through the wringer (literally) with the 2016 and now the 2018 MBP 15". I am going to hand my 2018 MBP back to Apple and will instead opt for an iPad / Mac mini setup. Since I have a 2014 MBP as a backup, this setup is starting to make sense. I am not sure what complaints people can truly have... but for me... honestly... I have none.

  • Woman sues feds over data retention after iPhone seized at border

    I used to travel back and forth internationally at least 4 times a month. I was put on a "black list" where for the next 5 years I was personally screened each and every time I came through.

    The trigger was when border patrol wanted to look through my computer. I refused and told them they needed to get permission from my legal department (Microsoft). I came to find out later that rights do not exist at the border, since no in that zone has technically Entered the US. I find this odd since the US has laws that govern its citizens regardless where they are in the world, but essentials like the bill of rights do not apply. Double standards?

    To bypass this issue, I created two separate logins. So if they would ask to view the computer, I would simply log into the secondary account. They are not trained nor do they have the technical expertise to know better. In my case, they kept on looking for things like spreadsheets as I was "suspected" of illegal trading. Just a shame we cannot do this with our iOS devices.

    Its is an interesting topic but doubt very much this is a good forum for it.

    Just a heads up people.... If you open safari and type in the address bar: vnc://ip-address:port it will open Remote Desktop / screen sharing
    Good to know.  Now all I have to do is ask my parents to look up their IP:port. Easy...
    /s 

    They’re  probably killing it for security reasons, which is good. My only ask is: if you can share your screen with Face Time/ Messages, and it has end to end encryption; why can’t you also allow remote control?  Is there a significant  difference in risk/security? 
    You can control their computers, but they have to grant permissions once its started. I do this with my ageing non-technical family members.
