The gang is back to discuss Google removing the “secure” indicator in Chrome (because the web SHOULD be secure or, at least, that’s what Google thinks), Google announces yet another name change/product change with YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, Google removes their famous “Don’t Be Evil” moniker from their code of conduct (but, really, it’s still there), did Google fake their Duplex demo? Be wary of Kickstarter projects as one just shut down that had almost $5 million dollars in funding (and no, supporters will NOT get their money back), Zuckerberg goes to the EU and wastes everyone’s time…again, and Microsoft is blocking Flash, Shockwave and Silverlight in Office 365 subscriptions because, well, you shouldn’t have those in your documents anyway!
On the security front, Amazon is selling facial recognition services to law enforcement, a Comcast bug let basically anyone get your Xfinity WiFi name and password and a company’s services was allowing law enforcement to bypass getting a warrant and immediately looking up where a person’s location was via their cell phone. Yay!
The show is rounded out by Donovan’s pet peeve of rating and comment sections of podcasts, a CBS show (Instinct) that he recommends and Sam alerts everyone to Doctor Who streaming on Twitch!
