Internet Explorer and iOS 6 Maps

A couple of things you should know.  

There is a huge security hole in Internet Explorer. Microsoft has even gone so far as to release what is called an "out of cycle patch" for it.  So please run Windows Update if you use a Windows machine.  Thank you! 

Then, if you will be using Apple's iOS 6 with either your iPhone or iPad you may find you don't like the new Apple Maps which seem to be not quite ready for prime time.  If you would like to go back to using google maps, Don McAlister has done a quick tutorial to make it very easy. 

Have a great weekend.  Happy surfing and driving!

Attention Internet Explorer Users

You may want to reconsider which browser you use.  There is currently a honking huge zero day exploit. (this is a big security hole in the browser that is not patched but it is currently being exploited).   

So take your choice... if you can possibly do it, use Firefox, Safari, Opera, or Chrome at least until this is patched.

If you must use IE for whatever reason and you are not on IE 10, then please read this by Brian Krebs:

This has been your public service announcement for the day.
