NBN pauses HFC and Apple roots user security: Vertical Hold Episode 155

What real impact will the NBN’s HFC pause have? How serious was the Apple High Sierra root security problem, and why will we be waiting until 2018 to see Amazon Echo down under?

Vertical Hold is brought to you by Linksys.

We’re joined this week by Paul Smith, Technology Editor at The Australian Financial Review to dig deep into the NBN’s curiously congratulatory announcement of a 6 to 9 month delay in HFC NBN rollouts, Amazon’s delay in bringing Echo to Australia and Apple’s delay in making High Sierra actually, you know, secure. So delays all round for the end of the year!

Vertical Hold: Behind The Tech News – podcast hosts @adam_turner and @alexkidman speak to Australia’s leading technology journalists every Friday to get the stories behind the tech news of the week.
