Show Notes:

Hour 2: Tech Round Table

 Foster, Gary, Cal and ED

During the second hour we gathered all the Tech expertise of our team Cal Carson, Foster Braun, and Caston Thoma. Topics ranged from:
  • Do you still trust Facebook? https://bit.ly/2qAmOJW  
  • Woz is deleting his Facebook account : https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2018/04/08/apple-co-founder-steve-wozniak-says-hes-leaving-facebook/497392002/  
  • Here’s the link to DELETE your fakebook account…
    Attached are the screens that FB makes available on their “settings” page.  “Disabling” is NOT the same as “Deleting”.  Disabling gives FB the legal rights per their “terms and conditions” to continue certain tracking activities that go away when you delete.
    Note that even if you have never logged into FB or created an account, they have ways of tracking & identifying you.  Any webpage that has a FB link allows them to track your location when you click on that page.  They can correlate what devices you use, by watching devices that are in the same location over time.  Using other information sharing capabilities with companies like Axiom, Drawbridge & Quantcast, they are able to build profiles around your behavior, and often identify who you are if you signing or register or fill out a form with a company that has an information sharing relationship with you.  That little FB icon on a webpage or the little thumbs up can track you even if you have cookies turned off.
  • Disney launches ESPN+ $4.95/mo.  Limited sports
  • IRS the Tax man cometh. DeadlineApril 17th.How do you file for an extension.
  • Samsung released an internet-less smartphone is free for students in South Korea
  • Comcast will soon offer packages with Netflix bundled in https://www.cnet.com/news/netflix-comcast-new-bundles-may-make-streaming-easier/
  • The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) seeks to create a harmonised data protection law framework across the EU and aims to give citizens back the control of their personal data, whilst imposing strict rules on those hosting and ‘processing’ this data, anywhere in the world. The Regulation also introduces rules relating to the free movement of personal data within and outside the EU.
  • Google loses ‘right to be forgotten’ case  A businessman fighting for the “right to be forgotten” wins a UK High Court action against Google.  http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-43752344

It was more fun than a barrel of monkeys and twice as interesting to get our team chiming in on different issues. Look for it next time we are on the air.
