In This Episode: Several examples of Google doing absolutely stupid things, like blaming content creators for what Google itself puts into their content. Plus: AMP pages, foldable phones, and is the “ISO Rating” setting on digital cameras “fake”?
In This Episode: AI is now creating realistic people. Truly universal remotes. It’s now possible to get human help from Google (but yagotta pay — a little! — for it). It’s not amazing that an old computer works. Old and moldy: autonomous cars; New and exciting: autonomous …bicycles?!
In This Episode: New computers, and old languages. The Earth’s shifting magnetic fields are screwing up GPS (sort of). The U.S. government shutdown is affecting .gov web sites for an interesting reason. Pixels on your wall. Tesla says “Pwn Us”. Can the police make you unlock your phone?
In This Episode: Should you follow Computerworld’s advice and “Make sure Windows Auto Update is turned off”? (No!) Patreon’s mighty back-pedaling: is it enough damage control, and what will non-techie creators do now? The new iMac Pro: a “$13,000+ computer”? Does Bitcoin actually use as much power as all of Denmark, or is something fishy about this? And: Did Facebook really “admit” that using Facebook is “bad for you”? (Not exactly….) Note we’re breaking for the holidays: back in early January!
