    This Week in Google 402: Garanimal House

    This Week in Google (MP3)

    Google will change search to favor quality, reliability, and authority. But what is "quality?" Amazon Look is an Echo with a camera and sharp fashion sense. Goodbye, Net Neutrality. Twitter beats the street. Uber almost gets kicked out of the App Store and breaks the heart of Unroll Me's CEO. Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales launches WikiTribune to fight fake news and hires the best journalist in the world to help him. Alexander Hamilton in VR. AT&T is the first company to launch a fake "5G" network. Juicero's CEO had only the noblest of intentions.

    Hosts: Leo Laporte, Jeff Jarvis, and Stacey Higginbotham

    Windows Weekly 515: You Will be Degraded

    Windows Weekly (MP3)

    Invoke: Microsoft's awaited answer to the Echo. Why is MS holding back the promised public preview of the Cortana Skills Kit? Meanwhile, Amazon's now doing a voice powered Echo camera (for fashionistas, to start). Creepy or cool? Microsoft to roll out new Windows 10, Office feature releases twice annually. Creators Update at two weeks: Microsoft says "millions" have upgraded. Anecdotally, there are no horror stories to speak of. CloudBook specs leak ahead of Microsoft's EDU event. A Windows 10 watch! Microsoft earnings tomorrow: what to expect.

    Security Now 609: The Double Pulsar

    Security Now (MP3)

    This week Steve and Leo discuss how one of the NSA's Vault7 vulnerabilities has gotten loose, a clever hacker removes Microsoft deliberate (and apparently unnecessary) block on Win7/8.1 updates for newer processors, Microsoft refactors multifactor authentication, Google to add native ad-blocking to Chrome... and what exactly *are* abusive ads?, Mastercard to build a questionable fingerprint sensor into their cards, are Bose headphones spying on their listeners? 10 worrisome security holes discovered in Linksys routers, MIT cashes out half of its IPv4 space, and the return of two meaner BrickerBots. Then some Errata, a bit of Miscellany, and, time permitting, some "Closing the Loop" feedback from our podcast's terrific listeners.

    We invite you to read our show notes.

    MacBreak Weekly 556: Un-Unroll Me!

    MacBreak Weekly (MP3)

    Two more entries in the seemingly endless stream of Uber scandals. Scandal #1: Uber almost gets kicked out of Apple's App Store for identifying iPhones. Scandal #2: Unroll.me, which bills itself as an automated email unsubscribing service, sold data it gleaned from users' email to Uber. Apple slashes affiliate commissions from 7% to 2.5%. It is seeming more and more like the redesigned iPhone 8 might be facing production delays. Two years after its release to the public, the Apple Watch is both more than we expected, and less.

    • Kelly Guimont's picks: Uni-ball Kuru Toga Hello Kitty Mechanical Pencil and Staples Arc Customizable Notebook
    • Andy's Pick: MeFoto Walkabout Air Monopod
    • Rene's Pick: Apple Watch Nike+ Band
