I’d be more honest if I said all of these are my favorites of the month, because I’ve played each of them many times, often with Netflix on in the background with the sound turned down and the subtitles on. I’ve noticed that Netflix is particularly bad with tone-deaf music choices for their original series and films. Perhaps they also have a stake in a recording platform? So, I alter the soundtrack while watching and many of these have albums have been part of that conversation and experience.… Read the full article

Watch out for this potential vulnerability if you're opening up apps on a Mac: a security researcher has worked out a way that malware makers can bypass the macOS Gatekeeper protections to run malicious code.

Filippo Cavallarin details the security hole on his website and explains how it gets around Gatekeeper – the feature that prompts users to confirm they want to install applications from outside the Mac App Store.

High-End 2019 show coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

There is nothing “boutique” in size when it comes to what Cessaro brings on a regular basis in Munich, these are rather ginormous horns paired with gargantuesque tube amplifiers (will be back for those in a sec).
