Talking about smartphone security on The Phones Show


The Phones ShowThis last weekend I made a guest appearance on “The Phones Show”, a podcast all about the world of mobile.

So, if you’re interested in finding out what smartphone I use, the risks posed by Android and iOS devices, whether you should run an anti-virus on your mobile, and even a little about a computer game called “Blox” that I wrote 25 years ago, make sure to give the following podcast a listen.

Thanks to Steve Litchfield and Ted Salmon for inviting me on the show.

    Great talk Graham.

    I never knew these guys existed, I’ll keep an eye out for their programme from now on.

    You know very well that I was most interested in Blox… and I quite enjoy the discussion of it, the (hopefully?) joke and the end - after raising the subject of royalties you quickly move on. Fair use probably applies though? If you aren’t making money then even if it is ‘illegal’ it should actually be ‘legal’ …

    Edit: And on the subject of boss screens - even to this day that idea is used. The MUD client tintin++ has one (or maybe it was a script that could act as one - can’t recall as I don’t have a use for that functionality). I like how far you went with it in Blox, though.
