Note. In the podcast, we discuss the Siri lock screen bug. Then we wonder if Apple's public comments on this flaw (and on the recent OS X SSL bug) might indicate a softening of Apple's traditional "say nothing until it's done and dusted" approach to security. In fact, Apple's public comments were on the OS X SSL bug and a recently-discovered iOS encryption flaw, not the Siri lock screen hole. Sorry about that. We nevertheless still hope that Apple is showing signs of loosening up its attitude to security notifications!

    Why does the RSS feed ask for a update of SoundCloud be installed b4 the file will play?

      Errr, what operating system are you using here?

      When I open the podcast RSS feed, my feed reader shows me a link to listen to each podcast on Soundcloud, and a link to download each podcast as an MP3 to my computer/device.

      On Android, visiting the Soundcloud page produces a "would you like to install the Soundcloud app" (no thanks), so I just download the MP3 and listen off my mobile device. (I have the Apollo player.)

      On my laptop, visting the Soundcloud page just plays the podcast in my browser (with or without Flash activatde, from memory), as you might expect.

      Assuming that you're on a mobile device...what happens if you just download the MP3 and listen to it with your regular MP3 playing app?
