174: Apple vs. Bloomberg: Did China 'Big Hack' all the hardware?
In 10 years of covering Apple, I've never seen anything like this. Bloomberg Businessweek has dropped a bombshell: Chinese intelligence — agents of the People’s Liberation Army — forced factories in China to add tiny spy chips to server boards being manufactured for industry-leading Super Micro, to be sold to industry giants like Apple and Amazon. Their boards and servers literally provide the hearts and minds for many of the world’s data centers, large and small. And, the report says, they’ve been hacked at the hardware level. I’m an optimist. I like to believe Bloomberg would fact-check the hell out of all of this before printing world one. That they would have it cold. But I also like to believe no public company would risk refuting it this strong if they weren’t dead sure it was wrong. The various accounts can’t be reconciled. There are no multiple truths here. Someone got it wrong under circumstances where getting it wrong is catastrophic. SPONSOR: Thanks to Skillshare for sponsoring this show!

How do you turn a profit on the end of the world?
It's not a hypothetical question. A collection of disclosures released by a U.K. nonprofit in January detailed the ways corporations are planning for the impact of climate change. Most companies are bracing for environmental hurdles that will hurt their business models—and they're not ignoring dire warnings, even if their governments are. But corporations are also matter of fact about the bright side: The coming increase in severe weather will also create plenty of opportunities to turn a profit. More people will get sick, for instance, or need to repair damaged property. In times of danger, people's phones will become even more critical. There's always money to be made if you can approach a situation the right way. So, what do the business models say about the coming climate catastrophe?

Facebook is used to dealing with rogue actors antagonizing politicians on its platform. But what happens when a country's own government is the one bending the rules? This week on Decrypted, Bloomberg Technology's Sarah Frier and Pia Gadkari look at what happened when officials in Sri Lanka reached out to Facebook to help build the government's online presence, and Facebook's responsibility when ambitious world leaders start using the platform for their own political ends.
