#349 - No Mac For You!

12/19/2017
More
Apple has been blowing things this month. It started with software, went to security, and has finished with our very minds. That's right; Apple has launched a couple products that could really change things! If only one of them wasn't as much as a car (or small home, or food for a family for a year). Also, Ajit Pai is an absolute tool. Not for the whole Net Neutrality thing (well, maybe that too). No, he's just a tool in general. I hope Google indexes that. I hope his name shows up in...

#348 - Men Are Ugly

12/12/2017
More
We've done it. We've found the bottom of the barrel. Of all the stupid stories we've ever had to report on, we've finally found the worst one ever. See, it turns out that if a guy doesn't like a girl, he can threaten to find her home and attack her and that's his right. But if she says that guys are jerks? Oooh boy, is she ever in trouble! Yeah, a bunch of stuff happened elsewhere, but it doesn't feel like it's even on the same level as that. Good on you, Facebook; you've finally broken...

#347 - Trust No App!

We all kinda knew that Chinese apps may not be on the up and up, but we didn't they would be so blatant about stealing info. Oh, and Google too. Yes, that Google. After all, when you told your phone you didn't want to be tracked, that was just a suggestion, right? Also

#346 - Yay! You're Screwed!

11/28/2017
More
With everyone getting busted for sexual assault, I guess the FCC felt they had to "1 Up" everybody and screwed us all without our consent! Seems about right for this administration. We were probably asking for it, though; flaunting our high speed connections and posting information whenever and wherever we wanted. We probably secretly wanted this. No? No one wanted this? You're telling me 99.7% of the population actively said "NO WE DON'T WANT THIS" and they still did it? Well I'm sure we...

#345 - Remember The Jericho

11/21/2017
More
Funny how when it's another set of religious radicals bringing down buildings and peoples it's ok. We're loopy as ever with our latest show recording yet! Zohner is completely out of the loop and Zuke sort of forgot what the internet even looked like, yet there's still some weird stuff going on in the tech world! Like how everyone seems to have a back door vulnerability (not like that). Or how Apple is only a couple releases from really (REALLY) pissing off their fan base. Or how Amazon's...

Bad Achievement Unlocked – SD – EP #344

11/14/2017

You know that feeling you get when you can't tell if someone is trying to make a fool of you or not? Yeah, Facebook's new idea sounds kinda like that! They'll help block your nudes if you send them nudes. Don't they claim not to allow nudes anyway? The new iPhone X is the greatest thing Apple has made in a long time, so long as you don't destroy it utterly by simply using it. Twitter thinks that maybe it's time to rethink the idea of offering a status badge that says "Hey, we endorse...

#343 - Better Than That!

11/7/2017
More
Things are not great over at TripAdvisor right now, what with them sending people to get attacked and then trying to hide it. The Pixel 2 XL is having an even worse week, if that was even possible. And Apple may have strung the iPhone 8 out to dry! Headlines: TripAdvisor deletes rape warning for Mexican resort Google Pixel 2 XL units apparently skipped QA Seriously, what's up with the Pixel 2 XL QA process? Microsoft employee installs Chrome after Edge fails him Honeywell getting in on the...

#342 - Super Dickery

10/31/2017
More
Good news everybody! We're one step closer to that state-run media and propaganda stage we've all been looking forward to! Hooray! Verizon has reached a whole new level of horrible, Facebook has decided that even the content creators don't matter anymore, and Consumer Reports has decided blanket statements are "good enough" for reviews. Headlines: Pixel 2 XL has some screen issues So no one wanted Snap Spectacles? Shocker Kaspersky lays all their cards on the table Facebook decides to...

#341 - Pumpkin Spice Moose

10/24/2017
More
So, in a bold news flash that surprises no one at this point, it turns out that nothing is really secure! Your RSA token? Not really secure! Your wifi security? Nope, not even close! Photo site used by teenagers? Honestly, we're surprised that didn't get hacked FIRST! It's time to embrace digital nihilism as we simply accept there's very little we can do to secure ourselves if we keep using other people's products. Oh, and don't let Zuke get anywhere close to yoga pants. You've been...

#340 - Asian Long Division

10/17/2017
More
So, it turns out pretty much everything is worse than we thought: the Equifax hack, Kaspersky, Samsung, Facebook . . . all of it. Even Google is getting in on the spying action, just hiding it behind a "feature". In positive news, at least we know about all the worst now. Right? I mean, it can't get worse . . . right? Headlines: Cortana gets ears on Skype in Android and iOS It's official: Windows Phone gets a time of death So, turns out Kaspersky may not be so good after all Alexa now...

#339 - In Mother Russia

10/10/2017
More
It seems that Russia not only is good at hacking, but they're also also pretty good at social engineering. And unfortunately, Equifax just can't seem to stay out of the news as things just keep getting worse for them, and for the 145 million people whose data they exposed to hackers. And then there's Google who had an event this week and gave us some new stuff to get excited about and to also joke about. Microsoft releases Edge for Android and gives Android users a new launcherIn Mother...

Equifax keeps surprising us with nonsense, additional iPhone X specifications are released, while the iPhone 8 seems to be having some hardware or possibly software issues similar to the launch of the iPhone 7. Amazon releases a huge line of Echo devices, while Google pulls away YouTube from Amazon's Echo Show without any explanation, oops. Equifax CEO gets paid Showtime websites hijacking browsers for cryptocurrency mining Showtime remains silent on cryptocurrency mining LG releasing a...

Schmidty rejoins us as we learn just how bad everything has gotten in the world of cyber security. SEC was hacked, Equifax was evidentially hacked TWICE, CCleaner is run by the people who it says it fights, and Congress has actually called Twitter itself to testify.It feels like all these rats are fleeing while they can still get something good. That's a concerning thought.Headlines:Twitter to report to Senate committee on Russia SEC was hacked and they may have traded with stolen secrets...

So, what can you do with your life if you're the most hated security "expert" in America and you only have a degree in music composition to your name? Well, it turns out not much!The Equifax debacle just keeps getting bigger and bigger and it threatens to consume us all. Not even Apple travelling into the past to bring us a new phone is enough to distract us. Not even Destiny 2, or animated poop, or 1-star Clinton reviews, or Cartman hijacking everyone's Amazon Echo . . . wait, no that...

So, we all know that we're screwed, right? Like royally so? Just making sure we're all on the same page, because we're all about to be on the EXACT same page. That is all.Headlines:Geek Squad decides they don't know anything about antivirus Equifax just royally screwed us all for decades to come But don't worry! Equifax's execs still made money off it! Oh, AND Equifax wants to make sure you can't sue, but will pay them money Congress shows us where their priorities lie IBM throws...

Trust us; this title is WAY better than what we said on air! People keep focusing on the poor celebrities who are getting their info hacked out of shoddy programs and websites. Don't get us wrong, it's bad for them. But I think we're all forgetting that it's bad for EVERYONE who uses those systems. Also, not so great for the American people in general when those same celebrities have a virtual private army of security compared to our own FCC! We also have some rumors coming down the pipe...

#333 - Stop Sending Nudes!

8/29/2017
More
I'm not sure when people are going to learn, but sending your naked pics to a cloud storage system with a weak password isn't a good idea. It's even worse when you're famous. Also a bad idea is writing a puff piece on the iPhone the same week the iPhone has two massive failures. And probably the worst idea is naming everything under the sun "smart". Look, I know it sounds cool, but maybe it isn't a "smart toothbrush". It's just a toothbrush. Let it go.Headlines:Galaxy Note8 is announced,...

We have guests on this week's show and a Collin returned from the dead! We have news of a huge announcement coming during a rare celestial alignment while Nazis are running amok. Honestly, if you hadn't been watching the news, you'd think I was just quoting the opening of Hellboy to you. Also, huge throwback to Superbad Pimpalicious!Headlines:Twitter bans an Alt-Right. Snowflakes melt in response. Uber reminds people to kick Nazis out of their cars Facebook bans white nationalists....

IIt's like a royal rumble this week as everyone is going after everyone else! Uber is just self-destructing left and right, Consumer Reports is on a throw down with Microsoft, and Google is taking hits from within. Dogs and cats living together, it's mass hysteria! Oh, also, could someone please tell us what Soundcloud is for? Cause we're honestly in the dark on that one.Headlines:Consumer Reports doesn't like the Surface Uber doesn't like disabled people Venture capitalist doesn’t like...

#330 - Too Much Normalcy

8/8/2017
More
Things seem oddly pedestrian this week as we have no news of anything big coming out. Instead, it's a whole lot of little things (mostly court-related) and we can't help but wonder if the shoe is about to drop. Uber may have just swung from "In the wrong place at the wrong time" to full on "Mr. Burns on a bad day" with their case against Google. Also, that part where they force laborers to use exploding cars. The security researcher who may have just saved the internet for all of us was...
