Welcome to another Bob Kfir’s Tech Blog newsletter. I’ve finally written the post I’ve talked about in the last newsletter: How Secure Is Your iPhone? Depending on how well it performs, I’m considering writing an entire post explaining how iPhone encryption works.
Oh, and you’ve probably noticed I’ve changed the name of this publication from Of The Nerds to Bob Kfir’s Tech Blog. The reason is that although I’ve had writers sign up, no one has actually submitted any posts. Therefore, calling it Of The Nerds made no sense as I was the only writer. If you want to write for a technology publication, there are many bigger publications that will give you much more exposure than this publication ever could. That being said, you can still contribute ideas.
