This week Elon sent the Falcon Heavy up to put his Tesla Roadster, with the spacesuited mannequin â€˜Starmanâ€™ playing Bowie on the stereo, into an orbit around Mars and missed slightly, sending it out towards the Asteroid Belt instead. Meanwhile the flat earther â€œMadâ€ Mike Hughes failed to get his steam powered rocket to lift off (again).
MacUpdate served up crypto miner infected files and a flaw in the Hotspot Shield VPN can expose users’ locations.
Thatâ€™s all fine and dandy but much more importantly we have a very special guest with us on the show this week. Bob Gager fromÂ AdobeÂ join us to talk about theÂ Elements versions of Photoshop and Premiere. The no-subscription, home user, versions of two of Adobeâ€™s big hitter professional applications.
