#1669: OS security updates, ambiguity of emoji, small business payments with Melio, Twitter now X

It’s time for another round of security updates for Apple’s active operating systems. Two of the fixed vulnerabilities have been exploited in the wild, so install soon. Also this week, Adam Engst explores the cautionary tale of a Canadian contract dispute that hinged on the interpretation of the thumbs-up emoji. He also looks at the small business payment service Melio, which has simplified the process of paying TidBITS writers. Finally, we have brief bits about Elon Musk renaming Twitter to X and what we did with in-between time before smartphones. Notable Mac app releases this week include GrandPerspective 3.4.1, CleanMyMac X 4.14, Lunar 6.2.1, and Final Cut Pro 10.6.7, Compressor 4.6.5, and Motion 5.6.5.
