    Inside the Core Episode 10

    After a two month hiatus, we are back with Episode 10. We know it has been a while but we are ready to get back to work and bring the best in Mac forensics information to you.

    In this Episode we cover the com.apple.LaunchService.QuarintineEvents SQLite DB File. PLoW covers several iWork plists, a VLC plist.

    The episodes Website of the Week is appleeserialnumberinfo.com. This website interprets a Mac's serial number and provides us with great information on the make up of that particular system.

    We talk briefly about a native "switch" in Snow Leporad that allows us to turn on read/write to NTFS volumes. No need for NTFS 3G or Tuxera NTFS. Look for more on that later.

    Show notes to follow.....No really, we promise!

    Inside the Core - The Night Before MacMas

    This is our holiday special episode. We gather around the Christmas tree with the kids and read our version of The Night Before Christmas.

    We want to thank all of you for taking the time to listen to the podcast and provide us feedback to help make the show better. We try our best to provide information that will help you in your Mac exams or at least point you in the direction where your questions can be answered.

    We would especially like to thank our own MacDudette, KK, for writing the MacMas version and for her on the fly editing while Chris and Dave were totally clueless on how to make two words rhyme.

    We hope that you have a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah or whatever you are celebrating!

    Be safe and we hope to see you in the new year!

Lots of information

Lots of information in each episode which is great for people getting up to speed on Mac forensics. While the audio quality is inconsistent, what a great way to get some free training without having to leave the office. For people who have seen training budgets cut in this economy, this is a great alternative.
