Intego Mac Podcast, Episode #224: The Enemy in Your Pocket

DazzleSpy; Safari; vulnerability; malware. Nuff said? Don’t worry, we’ll have more. There’s quite a bit of money to be made from Apple’s bug bounty program; one recipient blabs on the payout. Time for procrastinators to update to iOS 15 as security updates dry up for earlier systems. Scammers are preying on prayers, prayer apps that is. And we’ve got another AirTags to the rescue adventure. Also, Apple released a whole slew of security updates right after we finished recording the podcast; check the link in the show notes for full info.

Integrating Scrivener’s Binder, Corkboard, and Outliner

Scrivener’s philosophy is based on the awareness that many, if not most, writers don’t write long works from beginning to end, but rather jump around and build their projects in a non-linear manner. You write in the Editor, but Scrivener has three main ways to organize and rearrange your project: the Binder, Corkboard, and Outliner.

In recent articles, we’ve looked at how to power up the Binder, understanding how folders and texts work; how to use the Corkboard to brainstorm and rearrange your project; and how to plan your project using the Outliner.

In this article, I’m going to discuss how you can integrate these three powerful organizational tools when working on Scrivener projects.

10 Ways End-to-Encryption Protects Your Data, Your Privacy, and Your Bank Balance

You may not understand how end-to-end encryption works, but you use it all the time. It protects your messages and emails, your purchases and bank transfers, and your access to websites and services. Governments around the world have tried to prohibit end-to-end encryption because they want to be able to listen in on what you say and spy on what you do.

In the UK, the government is planning a PR blitz to try to paint end-to-end encryption as dangerous, in reaction to Facebook adding end-to-end encryption to its Messenger app. The main thrust of their campaign is to paint end-to-end encryption as endangering children.

If end-to-end encryption is made illegal, you would not be able to do very much on the internet, at least not securely. Here are 10 ways that end-to-end encryption protects you.

Organize Your Scrivener Project with the Corkboard

Scrivener offers three ways to organize your projects: the Binder, the Outliner, and the Corkboard. We’ve looked at how you can Use Folders and Texts to Power Up the Scrivener Binder, and how you can Plan Your Project with Scrivener’s Outliner.
