You need this podcast

I absolutely love this podcast! If you own any apple product you owe it to yourself to give it a listen 🎧

Mimou Stamopolous. ,

much needed!

I am learning a great deal about coming up with passwords. I will offer my own way of using passwords, I use completely random characters and with a minimum of 12. I never count on myself remembering it, instead I write them down and keep them in different 'sections' depending on how often I might have to use it. I would never trust a password manager because people are working very hard to hack into anything connected to Apple products.

iiight!!! ,

Very Educational, Interesting and Entertaining

I upgraded my i-phone to 11 just this week and so much has changed. I am still leaning to navigate. Kirk and Josh really interacted well holding my interest right up to the end. I am looking forward to hearing many more.
