The Spurs Beat The Heat

If you were wondering when I would start posting about the Spurs again wonder no more. Mostly I’m coming back to the topic of the Spurs because of the time of year, we’re headed towards the playoffs, and since I’m  not really a sports blogger it would be boring for me to write about the whole season. But also this was a GREAT day to start for the 2014 season because we finally beat the Miami heat (!!!) for the first time since game 5 of the 2013 finals.

I honestly hadn’t realized how upset I still was about last summer’s finals games until the other day when Aidan tried to bring them back up and I just kept repeating that I didn’t want to talk about it. And I don’t.  But I do want to talk about the Spurs this year.

Timmy is still playing great for his age, we have Marco Belinelli who is turning into a great fit for our team, and we still have some old solids like Tony, Manu, Tiago, Kawhi, Boris, Danny, basically the whole team is awesome.

We’ve been playing well, if a bit  inconsistently, the last few weeks and after last nights big win I think this is the win we need to make a strong push in the playoffs. Get excited because the playoffs are just around the corner, and we’re back baby!

Apple security flaw – update now

If you are not already aware, there is a major security risk with many Apple products. The issue affects both iOS and Mac OS X and would potentially allow a hacker to obtain your private information and/or potentially change it whilst in transit. The good news is there is a patch available.

How-To Update

For those who have an iPhone or iPad then you should update to iOS 7.0.6. To do this go to  Settings > General > Software Update > iOS 7.0.6.

If you have a Mac and you are running Mountain Lion or later then you can update by opening the Mac Store app and select the update – “OS X version 10.9.2”. Alternatively, on the top left hand corner click on the Apple logo and select “Software Update”. Either option should give you the chance to update and patch your system.

The risk

If you don’t update then many applications such as Safari, iMessage and FaceTime would send your data in an insecure manner. Any credentials you use would potentially be at risk of being intercepted, if in range. The update takes less than 10 minutes so there is really no reason not to update.
