Mozilla Suspends "Send" Due to Persistent Malware Abuse

"Someone were to go to send dot fire Fox Dot Com. At the moment they would be greeted by the little screen shot I have at the top of the security news of our show notes, which reads Fox and is temporarily unavailable while we work on product improvements, we appreciate your patience while we make the fire. Fox, Send Experience Better and Leo I think you did just go there did yes, and there it is so back because I really love. Fire Fox sent it so it's my go-to. Yes, it's my become my go-to file. Sharing Service the good news. It'll be back. The. Bad News is why it went away. Just to remind our listeners, we've talked about it before. IT allows files of up to one GIGABYTE if you're not signed in. Or two and a half gigabytes if you are to be locally encrypted in the browser. Optionally Password protected so that only the recipient is able to retrieve and decrypt the sent file. You get retention controls allowing the sender to set the time that is the duration and or a download count after which that content will expire from the Fire Fox send cloud and be removed. Unfortunately. As with anything that is simple, free and effective. Like think e mail. It's also subject to abuse by nefarious forces. The bad guys also love Fire Fox. Send because it lets them generate short-term links based on good-looking trusted domains for sharing arbitrary evil wear to unwitting victims, so thanks to fire Fox said the bad guys don't need to set up their own file sharing server. You know and like try to get a legitimate looking URL domain. They don't have to worry about making sure that you are. ells expire automatically. Mozilla does that for them and links it only work once create an extra challenge for security researchers. Even if the militias url is captured in a log by then it's probably been used so it's not possible to go back and obtain the original because it's been removed already. And, of course, since the IP is one of Mozilla servers. It's not one that anyone wants to just put a blanket block on. know I was GONNA say they wouldn't want to blacklist it but I'm working to be better. over the past few months fire, Fox, send it turns out has been used increasingly to store payloads for all sorts of cybercrime operations from ransomware through financial crime banking trojans. SPYWARE and used to target human rights. Defenders Fin seven revival also known as a so dino cabby. You are sniff. which is also the dream dot? Network and Z. loader are just some of the malware gangs and strains that have been seen hosting payloads using fire Fox, send as a consequence. The cyber security industry has has finally tipped its collective hat to Mozilla for suspending what has become a widely used and unfortunately now only abused service you know Mozilla did didn't just say Oh you know we recognize there's a problem we will be considering some changes in the future. They just shut it down. They said okay. We're GONNA. We're just GONNA. Stop making available until we can. You know upgraded? Cyber security researchers have suggested various changes to strengthen the service. One is to add a report abuse button so that flagging or killing militias links could be made much more quick and easy What Mozilla said in their statement about this, they said before relaunching. We will be adding an abuse reporting mechanism to augment the existing feedback form. And we will require all users wishing to share content using fire Fox send to sign in with a Fire Fox account. So. It's sad that once again we see the Internet's inherent anonymity, being abused and then having to be restricted. It was cool to be able to send up to one GIG with a twenty four hour expiration without needing an account with Mozilla. Even though I have one, but just zoom was forced to limit what they would allow to be done with full anonymity, so to now has Mozilla and as we know, even requiring an account is not a very high bar and my sense is, it's not going to be very effective, but at least it will help a bit, and it will help Mozilla to say hey, you know we've done all we can. We're doing you know we're doing all the we can do.

Making Privacy Law

"The word regulation gets tossed around a lot not lately and it's often aimed directly at the internet's big tech companies some worried that the size of these companies the power and influence. They wheeled the magnitude of their presence in our lives. It's too much that these companies need to be given boundaries that they need to be regulated u._s. Senator senator elizabeth warren for instance says big tech is too big. She wants to break these companies up but on the other end of the classic argument that any regulation is overreach that regulation actually stifles innovation. We should leave it to the market. Everything will sort itself out. Consumers will settle their problems with their dollars. It's a debate that's ongoing but over the last year in the midst of it a funny thing happened. Tech companies did did get regulated. Here's how it all started a little over a year ago. The general data protection regulation russian became law across europe the g._d._p. Are as it's called was and is a big deal. It lays out explicit rules rules around how companies collect store share and use data grants consumers important rights to protect their data privacy and it imposes. This is big fines on companies who breach these rights lake spain's national football league recently the spanish data protection authority sanctioned the national soccer league <hes> from spain <hes> because of their mobile tap gabriella zamfir fortuna is with the future of privacy forum and this story caught her eye mid june spain's top pro men's soccer league. It's called la liga and the league app is both for i._o._s. And android but according to the spanish data protection authority the android the android version comes with a bonus feature on the app did was that the microphone would turn on for a couple of seconds ends every minute during a live football match lolitas official soccer app can turn your microphone acre phone on to listen for a special audio signal sent out during televised matches. The human ear can't hear it. The league did that because because they wanted to cross reference the audio fingerprinting with location data in order to figure out what bars or restaurants were broadcasting the match without paying a license for that lolita says it loses one hundred and fifty million euros every year to piracy and fraud about one hundred and seventy million u._s. dollars by combining that audio signal and knowing where the phone with the app is as they can crackdown on unlicensed broadcasts well. That was the goal anyway. The data protection authorities says lalita didn't and seek out proper consent from its users and under g._d._p. Are that nets you a red card. The suspense data protection authority had an investigation <hes> <hes> and they decided to find the league with two hundred and fifty thousand euros. That's about one hundred eighty thousand dollars so that so one very recent example of g._d._p. Our enforcement lalita is crying foul. It insists everything it's does is legal and that it does get user consent. It says the regulator doesn't understand how the tech works so appealing the fine but for now they have deactivated he activated the feature complaints. Investigations finds an appeals. That is the name of the game for g._d._p. Ours first year and it means is that europe is leading the global privacy conversation around the world g._d._p. Are has sparked something. Similar legislation is spreading to places like brazil l. and japan india's considering it too in the u._s. No federal privacy law exists yet but the state of california has passed its own privacy law which kicks in next year not to mention the record five billion dollar fine levied against facebook in july by the u._s. Federal trade commission which by the way is the biggest fine ever levied and yet small compared to the tens of billions of dollars facebook makes every year financial penalties are getting bigger and privacy regulation has arrived and it's upending the relationship between tech companies and us their users today you'll hear from twitter's new data protection officer and how he says the company is rethinking how it handles our information and then microsoft explains why they claim they're eager for even more regulation and you'll meet the californian responsible for the passage of his state's powerful new data law. It's true one person can actually change the world. I'm new summary this i._r._l. An original okon cast from fire fox fire fox products have always stood for privacy when g._d._p. Our past fire fox fox didn't need to overhaul its business practices. The company's data privacy principles mirror those of the g._d._p. Are and even exceed them. In some ways it feels is like the rest of the world is catching up where the company has been all along learn more about how fire fox fights for you at fire fox dot com slash join the g._d._p. Are is a complex and detailed set of rules. We won't get into every bit of it but let's let's look at why it is such a game changer so i to clear something up. You know those annoying pop up notifications. You keep getting every time you go to a new website. This website uses cookies to ensure you. Get the best experience on our website. You'd be forgiven for believing that these problems are now mandated by continuing to use our site. Thank you agree to my terms of service and privacy policy. We'll use cookies to do things like remember what you've added to your shopping basket fi closing this vendor scrolling scrolling this page clicking link oh continuing to browse otherwise you agree to the use of cookies and you'd also be forgiven for finding them super annoying. I have seen plenty of those reactions because it might be that one of the unnecessary effects of the g._d._p. Are was that <hes> a lot out of banners. A lot of pope ops started to gloves of people. The pop ups are not a requirement under g._d._p. Are there more like a hack an elegant attempt by companies to get consent from consumers to collect their data. Here's gabriella again from the future of privacy forum but the g._d._p. Is carries much more than that. It actually starts from the premise that by mishandling personal data by on in <hes> fairly collecting unfairly using personal data more than deprive issue of people is at stake protecting online privacy. He is difficult and this law places. The burden of responsibility on businesses not consumers so for instance companies have to show that the data they collect act and use is necessary to providing their services and if someone asks that their data be deleted. They have to comply another strong long privacy protection that the g._d._p. Provides for is that it allows individuals to actually have some control over their personal data the the g._d._p. Are also provides for individual rights of action <hes> which means that people can go to court and ask for damages if if they think that <hes> any company or other organization a breach to the data protection rights and in fact a lot of people. We'll have been filing complaints according to gabriella in the first nine months of the g._d._p. Are being applicable. We have about two hundred thousand cases that were opened pinned with data protection authorities across europe because of g._d._p. Our companies including google facebook twitter apple and linked not in have faced investigations into their data practices but there has been some criticism of g._d._p. For one some say that the number of registered complains planes have not led to enough investigations others believe regulators haven't find enough companies for enough money to really make a difference but this is all still. I'm very new. They're calling it. A transition year as companies and regulators alike adjust to the new privacy status quo consumers. These are having to adapt to. I think we have a long way to go until the everyday internet consumer around the world will understand his his or her rights but certainly the g._d._p. Are has raised awareness okay so those the dp are basics if you wanna learn more about consumer rights under g._d._p. Are and accompanies obligations find linked to the official site in our show notes at ira fire l. podcast dot org

"How you doing Tom super? I'm loving it down here in the south east is absolutely beautiful. All right. Well, we have an Email here from Peter Vanderhoek and Peter asks about VHS tapes, he says he has a number of them. And he's worried about losing them due to the life span of magnetic media. And he's very wise to be thinking that way are you barred due to copyright for making backup copies. All right. Tom what say to this? Well, if you're doing this totally on your own backups for telling me fine. There's nothing wrong with that. The main thing you have to remember is according to the fair use act if you do something like that like as a convenient. If you're backing up VHS VHS, you're fine. If you're going to be checked the DVD. You just need to remember that. If for some reason you on a loan that somebody like you have some kind of a movie you need to include their original media to if you make a DVD backup, VHS tapes. You have this cotton written? That's all right as long as you keep them together. And if you loan it to your brother, he keeps together they have to have both of them together. You have to I have a DVD. Now, I'm gonna tell you can't do that. That's major violation of copyright sort of backup things just like computer software is fine to do as long as you're not distributing it. You're not selling it. You're not loaning it. Well, a lot of people get into trouble seeing why not selling it. So it's okay. I'm just giving it to front. Well, no that is made your contract violation. You can only do it as it convenient to use ensure the owner of that particular pay for the life of the particular tape. So you put on a DVD, that's fine. You might keep them together at all times. So that if you loan it to a friend or family member you need to keep both together. In fact, if we do transfer for people of old tapes is printed right on the. This must be kept with original media, all copyright rights are still the property of the owner. You can't do this. You can't do that. So you'd be very very careful don't get into any trouble because there are people out there that will go and make you an example, and it could cost you a lot of money. You know, that's really true. But I will say this, and I don't want this to be misunderstood for me endorsing copyright violation. But the practicality of that law seems totally unenforceable to me where are the copyright police running around saying, oh, you loan this to your neighbor without the original thing there. But you know, it's the right advice that is what the law is. And we need to respect that. But it makes me wonder who thought up the idea that keeping those together was going to put an end to this stuff. You know what I mean? Yeah. Well, the reason they write these logs if anybody really goes against it and a lot of bad stuff they have the right to. Hey, no. Here's the lions we are taking you to court, and we are going to strip you of everything you all chats happened in the audio world, but they just make it a real stringent laws. So if somebody pushes it too, far, they can go into I pick it up. They make him too liberal, then people pushing far too. So she just basically away did they can go in and say, hey, you have really violated this. We are going to ask you the bad people are gonna do bad things, regardless. So this is you said, hey, people, we know you're on here. Allies. Please don't fringe on. And how we make a living. We need to take care of our families too. So it's just a way to kind of be fair to everybody. Absolutely. The other aspect is you as a business person also have to follow those laws, and it's important for people to understand that they cannot expect you to do something that is against the law. Absolutely. It's not worth it. And I bet you've had people ask you too many times. Oh, yeah. We've had people come in and wanna take consolation CD's that they want to hand out of their wedding. Like, no, that's major major major copyright violation. Yup. We won't do that. And then they get mad at us. So we don't do it. We can contact the Harry FOX agency, Harry, FOX dot com and say, hey, I want to do this on my wedding. What do I need to do by the licensing rights, sometimes they're really really cheap? And then you're calling me free to do it the proper way, but just check with the Harry FOX agency. And then you'll know what you can do. And what you can't do. All right and coming up next.

I am you know, on the weeds asked me anything recently the weeds is the policy podcasts. I co hosts by wasn't on. This ask me anything and one of the questions that Matt and Sarah and Darah got was is ever going to finish his book, and then they all just laughed and moved on. And and that's motivating I appreciate that. I am going to finish my book, but part of getting a draft finished because this is hard is going to be my work converges for a bit. So you're going to notice in the coming months. A certain convergence between the themes. I'm thinking about for the buck and who's on the podcast. But I also wanted to to ask this of you, if you're a listener of the show, I think at this point, you probably know the themes of the book is dealing with a political identity polarization the ways in which a parties have sorted the ways in which the collisions of our coalitions have become more more person. And more intense, and how that is affecting other institutions in in American politics. If there's someone you think I should talk to on this someone you think it'd be interesting for me to interview somebody who studies polarization and political identity somebody who exemplifies polarization, political identity somebody who worsens it somebody who makes it better, maybe has a solution to it. You know, I can only through my own net so far, and I've gotten so many great ideas from you all over the years that I'd be very interested to hear who you think I should talk to for a book like that who you would like to hear on the show as I'm trying to finish my thinking on this one thing, I will know to a chapter I'm really working on in China understand is why the Republican and democratic parties have evolved in such different ways.

The number of teenagers using Facebook that's been on the decline for years. They've migrated to Snapchat Instagram and about twenty million of them are over on house party a live video app where people drop in on each other and chat or leave video messages, and they can hang out with up to eight people at a time. I know the name house party sounds like kids doing I don't even want to know what on video, but actually co founder and chief operating officers Seamus Donnie, told me she wants house party to be for real personal, connections, and empathy literally no filters, you friend, a group of people ahead of time. And when you open the app, it actually notifies them that you're there, and you're ready to have a conversation. And so it sort of takes the emotional hurdles out of actually video chatting with somebody. Why video there obviously, inherent risks and interacting live on video. Not to mention, you know, just. Bandwith and appearance issues. You know, talk to us about the value of video as a communication tool. That's at the heart of the empathy and how we do that you say appearance like I want people to be proud of. You know, I woke up this way. Right. And if the tool is just about you, and the people you care about you shouldn't need filters. Right. You shouldn't be trying to project yourself as content. You should just be there to have like affirmation from a qualitative perspective, not validation by numbers. And I really hope that like we have a generation grows up knowing the right reaction to sadness, not just the right emoji. So talk to me about how that's reflected in the product design. Like, I assume that you're getting rid of things like likes and little hearts that pop up the screen and things that feel sort of addictive and engaging as opposed to. Antic?

Researchers say wireless companies are slowing down video streams

Learn more head to planet m dot com. Planet in Michigan where big ideas and mobility are born. Since the end of net neutrality. Researchers have found wireless companies slowing down video streams coincidence. Or no from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. It's been almost six months since the FCC repealed net neutrality rules today is the deadline for the house of representatives to overturn that decision. Although no, one expects that to happen. But what has the repealment for ordinary people? Well, according to some researchers it's meant wireless carriers potentially slowing down your video. Streams David toughness is an assistant professor of computer and information science at Northeastern University his team researched this issue what we do is. We send traffic that looks like you to then we'll send the exact same amount of data, except we take the content in completely randomize it. So just looks like gibberish. If we see you get different bandwidth when you send Jaber's first when you send something that looks like YouTube, then we can identify that. In fact, the network is giving different performance based on that content. Got it. And is this something you've studied in the past? That is do you know, if it's a change in the way? This traffic is treated short. We I saw instances of various network providers in fearing with in terms of slowing down or in some cases, changing content. That was being sent over the network we identified this in early twenty fifteen and then we found after the FCC's open internet order during the Obama administration took effect. We saw that all that behavior changed that they essentially stopped any of these policies in response. But we assume is in response to these rules, and then based on the period of time that just happened to be when FCC's open internet order was in effect when there was not this much traffic manipulation. Is it your sense that it's maybe not technically necessary? Like the argument often that you hear from carriers. This this is necessary. Data optimization to protect our networks. Exactly. Into be clear. I am not opposed to network providers. Managing their network. That's something that is going to happen. If the demand on the net. Work exceeds capacity. Then someone's not going to get everything that they want that said there was a period of time when we detected no throttling from any of the major carriers in two thousand fifteen they didn't seem to fall apart, and then we can look to other countries. So in Europe net neutrality is the law. We've done a lot of measurements in France. Because we've partnered with their telecom regulator are set to provide these auditing measurements to check whether ISP's in France are compliant with the law. And so far we found that they all are. And I've heard no accounts of some that works being so overloaded that they're unusable and France. So we certainly have at least some evidence that networks can run just fine under loads from video traffic without needing to do throttling. David toughness of Northeastern University. He's part of a team that produced this research. We asked the four big wireless carriers for a response. Sprint denied throttling. AT and T and Bryson pointed us to a statement from the wireless industry trade. Association the way that post says the team's research was flawed. Three democratic senators have also asked the companies to respond to that study. And now for some related links. There is still plenty of drama around net neutrality, especially about the FTC's comment period leading up to the vote last year. FCC chairman edgy pie has acknowledged that Russian bots flooded, the public comments system, but the agency rejected freedom of information requests filed by the New York Times and BuzzFeed for server records from that period. But here's the other thing even carriers would like some regulatory certainty around net neutrality. You take the rules away and things get messy because now that there aren't any. There is going to be a patchwork of state rules led by California, which passed strong new net neutrality laws this fall, and that is radically a nightmare for the very companies who wanted net neutrality rolled back AT and T. In fact, has been asking specifically for a federal internet Bill of rights that quote applies to all internet companies and guarantees neutrality. Transparency openness non-discrimination and privacy protection for all internet users, and quote now we've been saying for a while that'll legislative solution is the best way to solve these problems long-term. But everyone also agrees getting congress to figure this one out is a long shot looking ahead to the week. Tomorrow is the day that Google CEO send our KYW is rescheduled to appear before congress for some more partisan political theater. But maybe we can all agree to just not watch. Just kidding.

How much would it cost to create a military Space Force?

"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by Mozilla makers of the brand new fire FOX monitor a free service to help you stay safe from hackers. You'll get a full report if you have compromised accounts and notifications if you appear in new data breaches take care at monitor fire, FOX dot com. How much would it cost to create a military space force from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Kimberly Adams in for Molly would. President Trump has said repeatedly that he wants a space force congress denied the request for a new branch of the military in the latest funding Bill, but some have started pricing it out including the center for strategic and international studies. Todd Harrison is director of the aerospace security project there. He broke it down into three models a space corps within the air force a space force light. Or a space force heavy all of which would mostly use existing military resources, but would require an additional one and a half to two point seven billion dollars over five years Harrison says his estimate is based on the idea that a lot of the work is just moving people around all of those things that we do today for national security space that authority right now is fragmented across the military. What a space force would do is actually combine those into one organization and one unified chain of command. That's in charge of space. So you're estimates are much lower than what say air force secretary. Heather Wilson laid out earlier this year. She said space force would cost about thirteen billion dollars extra over five years. What accounts for that difference? What when the air force put out there estimate. It's actually the cost estimate for space force and a new combatant command for space United States space. Command included in that thirteen billion dollars is a billion dollars to build a new headquarters building for space command something that arguably is not needed, and it's not related to the space force at all. So the air force through in a lot of extra things that aren't actually related to the space force to get to that thirteen billion dollar numbers. So that's really the big difference. But as space Twitter was very quick to point out. There were some things that you left out as well. Like transition time new satellites new missions new uniform says people seem to be very happy to discuss. Yes. So you could build on the cost of new unify. Terms. I I will take that. I did not include that in terms of new satellites. Oh, will sure that's a different question though than creating space force. If you want to expand what we're doing in space. Absolutely. That will cost more. That is a separate question though. From how we organize within the military force base. How real is any of this? I mean, how likely are we to see space force in any capacity anytime soon, you know, I think it's a coin toss right now because you know, the president is adamant and pushing for this. But there have been some members of congress who well before the president got onto this issue. There is a bipartisan effort in the House Armed Services committee now that the house has flipped control the democratic leadership is sounding much more skeptical of this. And I think in part of that it's politics is this has become branded as Trump space force. So that's gonna make it harder for many Democrats to get behind it and supported even though they may have supported in the past Todd Harrison at. Center for strategic and international studies. His estimate is one of several out there for what a space force might cost. We'll only know for sure if congress gets on board, I'm Kimberly Adams, and that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.

But one author says that now they're just regular old monopolies from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. Part of the reason there's a backlash against big tech. These days is because some of these companies are so big they're big in terms of users. See Facebook's two billion, plus big valuation, Amazon and apple have both topped a trillion dollars and big in market share more than ninety percent of all web searches happen on Google. The US is taking baby steps toward possible. Regulation Europe is taking more like Paul Bunyan's is steps, but critics argue these companies should have been slowed down long ago. Tim Wu is a Columbia law. Professor and author of the new book the curse of bigness antitrust in new gilded age. He says tech companies in particular were allowed to grow too. Big too fast. They're kind of like an overgrown baby that's still in its waddling close in its crib being protected from the outside world. They have a series of laws that protect tech industry in ways that other industries aren't protected, and they're also unregulated. Unlike let's say telephone industry or banks and that gives vantage as well. Well, you talk about the failure of regular. Leaders to realize that say Instagram was a competitor to Facebook. And so I wonder how much of that was like you said a lack of a regulatory will and ongoing swatting if he will or if it was actually just a misunderstanding of the technology and the potential I think a little bit of both. So I was in government during the campaigns where Facebook bought up much major competitors. Google bought up, frankly, hundreds of companies, and in government, people didn't understand the technology at all the business model giving stuff away for free competing for attention losing money for many years in order to make money later that all just didn't really compute with a bunch of people who were used to looking for kind of monopoly of the old fashioned, even Microsoft righty where you charged money or standard oil controlling an actual product. So that I think was all sort of confusing the other hand, I do think that this crib effect was still there. So new industry exciting. Thing. You know, they seemed full of really good people. So you know, why not just let them buy up all the rivals. Well, and how does this fit into say the FTC's starting to have conversations about trying to overhaul antitrust regulations for the digital age like is the Sherman act going to cut it? Or are they in fact, just normal old monopolies? I do think what a lot of people are realizing is you don't necessarily need a whole new law designed to deal with them. You just have to accept that their businesses. Maybe in some cases, you have to understand that they're interested in attention and not just money, but they turn attention into money. I think what we're learning is some of the older principles really should still apply a standard oil's basic method was to gain a monopoly by buying up all its most dangerous competitors. And that's exactly what Facebook did. So I'm in the school that suggests the old principles which call for the break-up of big monopolies have not gone out of date. Tim Wu is author of the new book the curse of bigness antitrust in the new gilded age that book it's available today. We had a much longer. Sation with Tim on the make me smart podcast. You can find that on apple podcasts or wherever you get your pods. And now for some related links. I rest in peace, STAN Lee who brought us so many things, including of course, that Connick line from Spiderman with great power comes great responsibility. Which of course, is exactly what we're talking about. Now on Monday in Paris, France, and some US tech companies put out a declaration calling for more regulation of the internet for cyber security privacy and to slow down the spread of misinformation. The United States is not currently listed as a supporter of the Paris. Call for trust insecurity in cyberspace, among US, tech companies Facebook, Cisco, Microsoft, Salesforce and Google did sign on. It's actually not dissimilar to something announced last week by Tim burners Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web called the contract for the web Facebook and Google also signed onto that it's a set of principles around affordability access and privacy, and it'll be launched in full next may. Day. And sure at the moment, I know these things are mostly just big announcement. But they're important because this thing the internet the World Wide Web has changed keeps changing our lives, and at the same time it's susceptible to the same problems as anything that humans create and it's so big and profound and powerful that it will take a large and global effort to keep refining it and in case all of that is too high falutin end up in the cloud. The Washington Post has a very black mirror story out this week about a UK study on how driverless cars are going to change tourism, and nightlife and apparently become little mobile paid sex bubbles because also thing about humans is that there's not a single invention that we won't somehow start using for sex.

That time it was illegal to fix your own electronics for almost 20 years

"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by Mozilla makers of the brand new fire FOX monitor a free service to help you stay safe from hackers. You'll get a full report if you have compromised accounts and notifications if you appear in new data breaches take care at monitor fire, FOX dot com. That time it was illegal to fix your own electron IX or almost twenty years from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. Once upon a time when something you own broke, you fixed it we never even considered whether we were allowed to fix our products until the year two thousand when the digital millennium copyright act. Made it illegal to circumvent any tack that locked up devices without authorization. So John Deere started telling farmers it was a copyright violation to fix their tractors. And apple started telling us, it was a copyright violation to fix our. I phones just last month the US copyright office. Finally decided that you do have the right to fix your smartphone. Lots of other electronics and tractors to Kyle Wiens is CEO of I fix it. A company that creates repair guides for electron IX and tells tools and replacement parts he told me we may have the right to repair. But repairing things isn't as easy as it used to be. This is a trend is you add Electric's more things than we have diagnostic codes on the car can't really repair car without a computer anymore. You can't repair tractor without a computer. And so this is going to be a trend that will continue. Our products are going to get smarter. They're going to require an advanced diagnostic software noted fix them. What this ruling does is. It says look it's legal for you to make your own diagnostic software for you the break in maybe jailbreak your phone what's going to need to happen next in order to completely open this up as we're going to need right to repair legislation to get the manufacturers to share their diagnostic software with the rest of us. What do you think is the likelihood that people who are now on one year contracts or pay off plans? What do you think the likelihood is that all of a sudden they're going to start trying to repair devices and keep them around for a lot longer? One thing that I think is interesting about the trends of technology is that you have these bursts of innovation where device they're changing very rapidly. And we've gone through that with cell phones from when the iphone came out for the last decade or so the devices have been getting dramatically better every year. We're starting to see that Pluto. If you have an iphone ten you do not need to get knife on ten are is just not that much better. So where in the past? I think we've been up getting our phones, maybe every eighteen months. I think you're going to start to see people using things for too. Three maybe even four years, but not for the devices to last that long. You have to change out batteries, you have to fix a screen when it breaks. So this is the inflection point with cell phones that we went through with laptops. It used to be people with joke. You know, your laptop was out of date by the time, you got home from best buy, and that's just not the case anymore. You perfectly fine with a five year old laptop it, do you see downstream economic impact here is there a likelihood that more repair shops will crop up. I think so anytime you have a product that's going to last longer. You're going to see more service businesses pop up. And that's actually a really good thing for the economy. You know, the actual labor. The apple pays to assemble the iphone in China is relatively minor. If you take your phone, then and you pay somebody fifty dollars in labor together fixed that that's a serious benefit to the economy of actually completely outweighs the five or ten dollars. Apple may have paid assembly time. So as we see maybe tariffs come into play. They're going to make these devices more expensive, coupled with these trends where you don't really need a new phone. I think you're. Going to really c in the explosion. And the repair economy. That's Kyle Wiens CEO of I fix it. Things that still can't be repaired by third parties under the DMCA game consoles, like Xboxes, NPS, fours, boats and airplanes. And now for some related links. It's election day. So expect the misinformation machines to get turned up to eleven a digital -cation company called Bali male put out some research over the weekend saying that most adults in the US can't tell a fake campaign Email from a real one the party breakdown. Thirty six percent of Democrats spotted the fake Email that was supposedly from a current Senate candidate and twenty percent of Republicans could tell the difference only one person out of one thousand seventy nine correctly answered every question on the survey. It's a teachable moment. I guess. Next month. Google's chrome browser will start getting really aggressive about what it calls abusive ads who will will give web pages a warning and thirty days to clean up their act if it finds adds to abusive, and then chrome could potentially block every ad from a site that doesn't comply and so like how do we feel about Google having the power to just turn off sites? Revenue stream Mozilla Firefox browsers gotten more aggressive about third party trackers. So has apple safari? And I read a thought provoking piece about this a week or so ago on Forbes, it argued that browsers shouldn't be the helicopter parents of the internet and that cookies and trackers do actually deliver targeted advertising that in some cases people really like instead of delivering just as many ads that are totally random. It also argued that getting rid of these tools could benefit Facebook, Google and Amazon instead of smaller, publishers, and more importantly that. We consumers have plenty of ways to turn off intrusive advertising instead of having browsers decide for us. The article is from a digital app insider.

The tech industry can't seem to stop picking narcissistic CEO's, but are they bad for business from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying. The digital economy I'm Ali, would. Silicon Valley loves a charismatic founder story, but there's a difference between leadership and narcissism and new research shows that narcissistic CEO's are actually bad for business. Jennifer Chapman is a professor of management at UC Berkeley's Haas school of business. Her research focused on the tech industry and found that narcissistic CEO's tend to pay themselves more and pay their executives less. They get involved in more lawsuits because they take more risks than they need to, and they tend to hire people more for their loyalty than their skills or judgment. I asked her if the myth of the genius founder means a lot more narcissists in tech, we hear a lot about CEOs who are founders in the technology industry adopting behaviors that appear high on the narcissism scale. But in the end, there are as many founders who are not in our. Estate as there are founders who are narcissistic. So it's not really a causal factor. You don't have to be a narcissist to be a founder, it sounds like it's hard though to disentangle those two things. Those two perceptions, right? It's very hard to disentangle them, particularly if you think about being a board of directors who selecting a new CEO and the CEO is savvy enough to put his or her best foot forward, it's much easier to see the energy and the vision and the confidence and harder to detect how the person treats other people how much he or she will claim credit for success and so forth. And so you know, one recommendation is to really build into evaluation tools. The ability to get a much more nuanced understanding of these. He's kind of downsides of the narcissistic personality. What will it take for companies to get better boards of directors to get better venture capitalists to get better at weeding out these personalities? Well, I think what's so tempting in the entrepreneurial world is that in fact, entrepreneurs are almost sick selected based on having delusions of grandeur right thinking up things that heaven existed before and having confidence in those visions, what boards of directors need to do though is go further and try to evaluate not just the idea and the confidence of the person proclaiming the idea. But what is there a long term source of knowledge going to be? Are they going to only rely on their own instinct and their own ideas? Jennifer Chapman is a professor of management at UC Berkeley. Haas school of business. I should point out here that narcissism isn't unique to the tech industry. Twenty ten study of college. Students found that narcissism has increased by more than half since the nineteen eighty eighties eight years and a trillion self. He's later and well. Here we are. And now for some related links, happy Monday. And here's what's happening this week that might make some tech news. Someone recently asked me if the blockchain fad was starting to fade. Yeah, maybe not just yet. Next Saturday in Berkeley will be the our music festival. The quote I ever music festival to be powered by blockchain technology. If I understand it correctly and that is always a big. If with blockchain things, there will be a music festival token created at or maybe after the event. And then people could eventually use it to buy merchandise and future concert tickets and things. Actually, to be honest, I really don't understand, but said in big Sean or playing. Happening in San Francisco next week, the fourth annual tech inclusion conference focusing on how to get under represented voices into the tech industry and build better cultures into the tech world that I definitely do understand and hey, shameless self promotion.
