TDH – Security Tightens

All alone this week, I discuss at length my first story regarding Amazon and Apple, and blow through a few stories about how there are individuals out there that don’t think Windows 8 is a good idea. I’ve been saying that ever since I played with it, months ago.  Also I focus a fair amount on security, and how to be secure in your person, papers and possessions. Hint: spend some time researching Truecrypt, oh, and pick good passwords. Tune in next week!
