UPDATED 06/10/20
Subscription Delivery Problems For iCloud.com Email Users: Several readers using iCloud email have reported they have stopped receiving daily email issues. They are still subscribed but iCloud is blocking the delivery of new blog issues. The problem is due to Apple vs Google compatibility issues.
-The first thing to do is make sure your device OS and apps are fully updated to current versions.
-If you continue to not receive blog emails, you must contact iCloud email support by phone (UK 0800 107 6285 / ES 900812703) or on-line ( https://support.apple.com/choose-country-region/icloud ) or by using the in-app “Help” function, and request they unblock the https://digamextra.com WordPress blog by “whitelisting” this address: donotreply@wordpress.com
It is a common problem that most Apple iCloud support workers are familiar with.
-Until you get this fixed you can visit the blog directly at https://digamextra.com, and you are still subscribed so you may make submissions.
-I have discovered that the iCloud email problem is mainly affecting older Apple iPads and iPhones that are not updated to current levels. If you use an Apple device it is necessary to keep updated to avoid problems with apps misbehaving. Please update your OS and apps, this may fix your subscription problem. Note: Owners of iPhone, iPad, iPod, or Mac products should click this image below to read about when Apple devices go obsolete (5 to 7yrs lifespan). For full list of obsolete Apple devices see https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201624. If your device is obsolete then I cannot troubleshoot your subscription problem, you need a new device.

Moonette Aromatic Skincare for 40+
*We are a Torrox based company specializing in the creation of formulas which help prevent premature skin ageing*
As our skin is the first layer of our defence against microbial infections, ultraviolet radiation and environmental contamination it plays a vital role in our lives. As we grow older however, our skin will become thinner, more sensitive, less firm and require the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognizing this need we have created a range of formulas which help reduce the appearance of the signs of ageing by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and also by eliminating blemishes and imperfection.
At Moonette, we are passionate about health, beauty and plants. Your skin will benefit from the properties of botanic essential oils combined with a selection of nutrients for deep hydration and cell revitalization, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients.
Naturally, we care about our planet and feel the need to help reduce the sheer volumes of plastics waste that are generated daily around the globe. Presently, we are minimizing the usage of plastic materials in our production while seeking alternative forms of packaging. To help reduce pollution we are asking all customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering:
* A discount on future purchases to clients recycling containers
Free testers of eye cream, face cream, and body cream are available on request. You can also try out testers in 2 beauty salons in Torre del Mar and Puente Don Manuel (Alcaucin).

Recommendations & Requests


Car Clean Malaga: I would like to recommend Car Clean Malaga to all Digamextra readers! Warren and his family helped turn my car from a scratched, bumped, pet hair covered disaster into a car that I truly couldn’t believe was mine! I had been quoted €700 to have the scratched panels repainted in a body shop.
Warren’s two sons met me down at the Mall ( El Ingenio ) In the car park, so that we could discuss what I wanted, and what they could do, plus the cost. I am on a pension so it was important to stay within a budget. Two days later they drove to Competa to collect my car. My car was delivered back within 24 hours looking Brand New! I am so happy !
Warren was known in Competa as a mobile car valet, I know people have been asking after him. Now with his awesome family he has state of the art equipment offering a range of solutions to suit your budget, with door to door service !
Thank you so much Car Clean Malaga for a truly professional service ! Patricia, Competa, pbritsky At msn d0t com

Government declares state of alarm in Madrid and locks down city: The order came into force on Friday to prevent residents from leaving the city for the 12 October holiday weekend. The decision was taken by the Socialist Party-Unidas Podemos government after the regional administration of premier Isabel Díaz Ayuso failed to propose restrictions by a 12pm deadline.
Spain’s central government has put an end to insitutional confrontation and approved the declaration of a state of alarm for the region of Madrid from this Friday. This allows prime minister Pedro Sánchez’s government to take control of Covid-19 measures and impose lockdown restrictions on the Spanish capital and surrounding towns.

UN- New daily record as COVID-19 cases hit more than 350,000:
The World Health Organization has announced a new daily record high in coronavirus cases confirmed worldwide, with more than 350,000 infections reported to the U.N. health agency on Friday.
The new daily high of 350,766 cases surpasses a record set earlier this week by nearly 12,000.
That tally includes more than 109,000 cases from Europe alone.
British scientists reported this week that the COVID-19 outbreak is doubling every few weeks, French hospitals are running out of ICU beds, Germany may enlist the army to help contain its outbreak and Spain declared a state of emergency in Madrid as coronavirus cases soar.

A Madrid judge ‘forgives’ the rental of a nightclub that was closed by the Covid- the ruling may set a “historic” precedent: The 81st Court of First Instance in Madrid has exempted a businessman from paying the rent for the premises of a Madrid nightclub until it can reopen as a result of the health crisis caused by the pandemic. Full story: https://spainsnews.com/a-judge-forgives-the-rental-of-a-nightclub-that-was-closed-by-the-covid-the-ruling-may-set-a-historic-precedent/


55 New Security Flaws Reported in Apple Software and Services: The flaws — including 29 high severity, 13 medium severity, and 2 low severity vulnerabilities — could have allowed an attacker to “fully compromise both customer and employee applications, launch a worm capable of automatically taking over a victim’s iCloud account, retrieve source code for internal Apple projects, fully compromise an industrial control warehouse software used by Apple, and take over the sessions of Apple employees with the capability of accessing management tools and sensitive resources.”
The flaws mean that a bad actor could easily hijack a user’s iCloud account and steal all the photos, calendar information, videos, and documents, in addition to forwarding the same exploit to all of their contacts.
After they were responsibly disclosed to Apple, the iPhone maker took steps to patch the flaws, some within 1-2 business days, with a few others fixed within a short span of 4-6 hours. Others remain unpatched.
So far, Apple has processed about 28 of the vulnerabilities with a total payout of $288,500 as part of its “bug bounty program” (where Apple allows the public to do Apple’s beta testing rather than properly debugging the software themselves before they sell it, MS does the same. -Ed).
