Always download software updates. HM Government says.


I saw a poster on the tube. A cartoon cat held a smartphone showing a message “Your whole life is in here. Is it secure?” With a software update button below it. Interesting, I thought. Was someone selling protection from rogue software updates? As everyone knows, these have a habit of ruining your day. No. It was part of a government campaign. To back up your data, especially before updating software perhaps? No!
It was actually encouraging lusers to the install updated software over the Internet as often as possible. So you can now blame HMG for what Windows 10 has done to your PC or Apple does to your iPhone next week.
Don’t laugh, it’s your taxes paying the bill.
