  • June 2022 Office non-Security updates have now been released

    The June 2022 Office non-Security updates have been released Tuesday, June 7, 2022. They are not included in the DEFCON-4 approval for the May 2022 patches. Unless you have a specific need to install them, you should wait until Susan Bradley (Patch Lady) approves them and any problems have been reported.

    Remember, Susan’s patching sequence and recommendations are based on a business environment that has IT support and may have time constraints on the updating process. Consumer patching should be more cautious due to limited technical and mechanical resources. The latter is the reason for the AskWoody DEFCON system.

  • Do you want an Apple running your car?

    If you missed the Apple event yesterday it’s not too late to watch the keynote

    The big takeaways?

    iOS 16 is coming with a new lock screen

    Editing and unsending of iMessages (wonder if it still leaves a forensic trail?)

    CarPlay is wanting to take over your entire car instrument panel

    New Macbook Air and Pros

    MacOS Ventura new operating system – will take a page out of the Microsoft hardware playbook and only run on 2017 and newer hardware (and we’ve set up a new forum to talk about it here)

    Apple is getting into passwordless as well – “Safari will now be able to use “passkeys” instead of passwords — a system built along with Google and Microsoft to allow you to log in to websites and apps with biometrics (like fingerprint sensors or facial recognition) without any text-based passwords in the mix”
