It's the last episode of our first season! We're taking a break for a few weeks to prepare a bigger, better, shinier second season of In Tech Today.
In the meantime, we discuss the Petya cyberattack this week, which brough Ukraine and much of Europe to its knees. What was it, how did it spread, and where did it come from? We also ask if cyberwarfare is the new means of attack between countries, and whether there is any way to protect yourself from other states playing dirty tricks.
It's also the iPhone's 10th birthday! This revolutionary device, released in 2007 by Steve Jobs at Apple, is definitely the modern smartphone's ancestor. How revolutionary was the device? How good was the first one? And, is Apple still innovating like they did all those release cycles ago?
Our techno dinosaur Michele also has a question about her internet speed. Her broadband sucks, and she wants to know if she can improve it. Listener Andy also has a question about encrypting his external USB hard drives to protect his data.
