Intego Mac Podcast, Episode #170: How iTunes Changed Apple

iTunes is 20 years old. Even if, on the Mac, that name has been eclipsed, the iTunes brand still exists, and iTunes is one of the reasons that Apple is such a strong services company. We also look at some new AppleScript malware, how some millionaires are losing Bitcoin because they forgot their passwords, and discuss “brushing,” a new semi-scam where people received Amazon deliveries they never ordered.
