MacVoices #15071: Glenn Fleishman Gives Practical Advice on Security and Networking In iOS 8

Glenn Fleishman is back to talk about a number of new projects, including his new activities as Macworld’s  Mac 911  columnist and being the new co-host of the  Macworld podcast, but the focus of the discussion is on his new book,  A Practical Guide to Networking and Security in iOS 8. There is lots to like about all the new networking capabilities and functions of iOS 8; Glenn talks about his favorites, what works, and what you should consider “works in progress.” Fitting it naturally with networking is the subject of security. Glenn covers not just the technical side of things, but also the intersection of security and society, and issues  surrounding your rights to privacy.
