Today we are talking about the freedom phone. A new phone without “Censorship from Big Tech.” This is a scam, but why? We discuss:
The big topic of the week is that if you had a Western Digital MyBook from 2015, there was a bug/exploit that wiped all your data. We talk about the bug, and whose fault it is (WD). Then we finished up with their response, which was as good as can be given the circumstances.
We cover two recent stories on what we call “Good Police Work.” Without breaking encryption, the police find ways to catch criminals.
We go on a rant about cookies, and the cookie laws.
Countries are talking about simplifying the law to create “acceptable cookie levels” in browsers, this means you’ll need to set this for every device and every browser.
In this episode we discuss patents. We focus on patent trolls and software patents.
