Updated May 25, 2015 — Gary still has occasionally very useful and helpful information. He has started to address how to identify security vulnerabilities in OS X, but still has a very “nothing to worry about” view of OSX. Case in point; Never open an email attachment from a unknown sender or if you aren’t expecting an email with an attachment. in the segment about phishing he opened the attachment without a second thought which is how malware can get installed on a mac. Apple is very good about plugging security vulnerabilities, but there are new ones all the time and opening the attachment is just poor judgement, particularly in an educational episode. He did say don’t click on the link in the email, but then opened the attachment (this is a prime malware entry method). For lack of judgement with security education. Moved to 2 stars.
January 6, 2013---Some of the episodes are very informative and give very valuable information. In the past couple years, I have been finding that in too many cases he looks at Apple and OSX with Rose colored glasses and ignores challenges with OSX or Apple products. Not to say that I don't like Apple or OSX, but I believe a balanced delivery is better than going through life with blinders on. There are a number of issues and pitfalls that should be addressed to help the new Mac user, but are ignored. 3 stars
