Microsoft unveils four Surface computers and a new folding phone
"Big surface event panos pumped mega pumped screens folding cameras. Improved walk straight yet. So there was eight devices into an update to the so basically the context of this is mike. Smith has a bunch of new surface devices for windows eleven so they will drop in on october fifth and they also have an android successor for the surfaced u as a substitute so got surfaced. Pyrite which. I think. I wrote before they still announced but this is the kind of one. We've been waiting for years. Kind of minas ov- redesign but some Screen changes and internal changes. Fundable this stuff. So that was kind of expected and then really minor change. The surface pro acts as a wifi modal. That was kind of like okay. Cool that's happening. Then the surface go free again. Might changes Prices up upgrades this stuff. So yeah k- cool. We kind of expected that. As well. And i guess the surprise Surprise we were expecting a new surface book. But it's the surface laptop studio so replace but team that sort of name and like the way they did it but basically it's a complete redesign at the surface book. So gone is the detachable display. Which i guess i didn't like pessina and a faint everyone Questioned is it full. I don't think the surfaced laptops g necessarily has a good answer to who is it for either but the the actual design is essentially if you remember the odor acer laptops with the the screen folds for almost pulls food or hatred. Folio they post on. It is kind of that design. So it's not really like the unique design that you would expect from the surface of us. That's kind of like myself really focused. Previous who has been very unique hinges and stuff is like a kind of unique hinge in that sense for the overall designers. Yeah it's like one of those crazy eight laptops that we saw many years ago just looks a lot better and more refined

"When you're when you're surfing stuff that will end up cutting down on things like targeted advertising. You can really limit the information. That's being shared By the sites that you're visiting And you can also enhance it with add ons that you can find Although obviously anytime you're going to be adding anything to An existing program. It pays to do your research to make sure that it is a offered by a reputable and dependable app. Developer fire fox is an excellent choice and twofold. If you download something fire fox you also get a very fast browser. Because they have worked very hard to make that browser quick. So even if you don't care about the security and you just want to access your sights really fast you. She use fire fox. I got stuck on chrome because for a while. Chrome was super fast. And then it got super bloated. And also the more tabs. You have open chrome anyone has done. This with chrome knows that even though are all supposed to be distinct instances that don't bleed over and teach other There gets to be some memory issues. If you happen to be really a heavy user and everyone here. This company is a heavy user so Fire fox is definitely going to be my browser of choice. Moving forward after. I did this research i also. I should point out before i did this research. I did not know this. I was just a happy blythe naive chrome user handing handing over reams of personal data to google which i mean granted. I'm sure that comes board with me by now but still there's some value there And then that brings us to encryption and this encryption. It gets this sort of complicated like the handshake thing but encryption when boil it down is all about scrambling messages so that the only people who can access it are the ones who have the key to decode it right. So you have the key to encode and the key decode their various implementations of that technology different ways to have the public key in private key operations. I don't need to get into all of that because it gets way too. Technical obviously encrypted is better than unencrypted but not all encryption schemes are created equal and it pays to know which ones are in use. Yeah so yes that's very true. There's there's even like there's symmetrical keys and niece metrical keys. Show one be cribbed. Rsa there's all these different terminologies for encryption. But for what. It's worth all of them. Jumble up your information into some kind of format that will hopefully hopefully encrypted so that anybody who does gain access to the encrypted version of your information will not be able to reverse engineer it or change it back to its original plain text format so they can't read it. in lake. English speak right it will be meaningless garbage to them. Hopefully yeah in. It's ideal ideal implementation. So one of the things that you may have encountered. If you've ever set up any sort of wireless network. I think most people have or at least they've they've had to connect to one where they've seen the different types of Of network security protocols these are certifications that the wifi security alliance creates the earliest. One was the wired equivalent privacy protocol or w. e. p. That one is decrepit..

"I the product has been around for half a decade of this No actually it's been almost a decade. Wow i can't believe it's been so long but we've gone through various revisions of it and as security has gotten stronger. There's always been new. Vulnerabilities available in wireless network technology. So we've always been able to update the wifi pineapple to continue to educate people why it still a good idea to knock Connect to public wifi or open a hot spots and it's been a wonderful education toll since we can use it as this kind of man in the middle attack for for you know helping people understand. Yeah and i mean like the the thing that i see people sometimes and i know you've seen it sometimes protests like why are you making this thing and the argument i would make to them and i'm sure it's an argument that you guys have made numerous times as you know that people who have bad intentions are making stuff like this already. They're they're they're doing it all the time they're doing and they're not talking about it they're not upfront about it. Because they want to take advantage of it. The reason why you guys do it is to raise awareness to teach people how it works and presumably they can then take that knowledge and better protect whatever their future clients might be if they end up working as a white hat hacker and yes straight up. People have made their own wifi pineapples using you know different types of hardware in different kind of software that they've made their own but our our products are well. Five products are listed in nist. Which is the national institute of standards and technology's is as a wireless penetration testing device. So a lot of company see as a professional tool and they get their employees to purchase these items to use and make sure that their networks are protected. Because as much as you could use a wifi pineapple hack somebody. You can also use it to protect yourself. Because you're still doing the same kind of tracking on your known network. So if i had a wifi pineapple on a company's network that i'm legally have access to as since that's my profession for example hypothetically Then i could see what employees are doing on that network so if somebody's visiting facebook when they shouldn't be i could see that and i could tell him. Hey you need to cut that off or you're going to get written up or if there was an attacker trying to gain access to wireless network. I would be able to see those packets. Because they would not be what i normally see and i would be able to protect my network because i could blacklist them then so there's so many different ways that you can use these tools not just variously like you and mentioned but in these amazing ways that help protect so much more than just companies also the employees that are working there as well Yeah and and. I've always been the type to say if someone's outwardly talking about what their technology can do. Then those are the people you should trust. It's the ones who aren't talking that you have to worry about so it's the same thing for me. When people are talking about security vulnerabilities that they found in systems where they might come forward. And say yeah. I reported this like three months ago. The company still hasn't done anything about it. The only reason i'm coming forward is because that puts the pressure on the company to definitely make a change because that vulnerability exists whether they talk about it or not now. They have to do something because the public knows about it and they're absolutely i'm fully on board with that too. I mean i think that you always give the entity the chance to address it..

"Just a couple of days before we record this episode where they said yeah Even if you opted out of location tracking we actually know where you are partly because of the information people are voluntarily sharing like tag i if i a photo while i'm at a party and i tag the location and i tag people are in the photo. Well i'm voluntarily sharing a lot of information. Maybe those people haven't given me permission to do that. But i'm i'm sharing that information. So yeah of course. Facebook knows where. I am. When i when i'm there and who i'm with because i shared the information but they also admitted. Yeah we also use a lot of other methods where we can suss out where you were and who you were with. At what time that aren't as obvious and aren't examples of the user voluntarily handing over information so yes scary stuff One of the things. I wanted to mention is sort of the bird's eye view of the process of what it's like just connecting to wifi so we can kind of understand You know what's going on. Because i think a lot of people if they think that if they see for example. There's a a wifi hotspot. That requires a password. They immediately think that that is inherently more secure than a public wifi spot. The has no password which is not necessarily true So connecting to wifi is really you can think of it as a series of handshakes between whatever device you're using and the hot spot whether it's a router or something else and this series of handshakes is not meant to secure the data. It's not meant to encrypt a channel. Necessarily it's not meant to protect it. What's meant to do is to identify the device and the hot spot so that they know where the data needs to go right otherwise if if we all connected to a public wifi hotspot and there wasn't this handshake thing going on. It would be as if we were all listening to an open broadcast of everything all at once not just be meaningless garbage and we were just we were just get everyone's data simultaneously and we're like i don't even..

"Of how do we find any vulnerability so that they can be patched t even the black hat culture where people are exploiting this for their own gain. I wanted to see what you thought about the stats. So the first one was They asked a question to people in the united states in germany and in france and the question they asked was. Do you ever use unsecured public wifi networks in the united states forty nine percent so nearly half said you know if there's no other option sure i'll do it. Thirty two percent actually said. I prefer using public wifi to using my cellular plan Presumably because they would not be billed for data usage right because they're using wifi. Instead of their cell data only eighteen percent said they never did it one percent said they do it but only with a vpn but will cover vpn's a little bit later so shannon. You've you've talked to hackers. What do you think their reaction initially would be hearing that. Nearly fifty percent of people in the united states said yeah. You know if there's no other connection allah connect public wifi and another thirty two percent less. Oh heck yeah sign me up. I'm definitely in the one percent of only with a vpn in and that's assuming that i have absolutely no other options. So i'm kind of a mix of the forty nine percent and the one percent. But only only if i have a vpn. I would say from my experience. All of my friends would probably not be surprised by the thirty. Two percent that perfer public wifi over their cellular plants Specifically because of what you said they'll be able to save money especially if they don't have an unlimited plan through their mobile carrier so in that way it makes sense the forty nine percent that say yes that there's no other option. There's always another option. Come on folks. What are you doing where are you at. I mean we have such good cellular coverage. Now there's always another option even if you just have three g. like that's manageable for most tasks so what what are they doing. I'm just my draw. My job kind of dropped a little bit. When i heard that number. I just thought it was. I thought that i'm doing a much better job of educating people about the importance of not using public wifi. Apparently i'm not doing my job as well as i should have been or or the people who are already of hip to it. Are the ones watching you going here. She gets it she knows and the people who need to see it or like. What's on the mast singer today or whatever you know like so. Yeah i i look at this. And i think man if i were a black hat i would just be doing the mr burns. Excellent gesture over and over again. Just drooling at that opportunity because public wifi is definitely the the the most dangerous option you can pick when you're talking about protecting your own privacy and security especially if you're not doing something like using a vpn spoiler alert..

I'm on yours drawer false. You can negotiate your credit card rate true. I've done this a bunch of times. I've helped listeners negotiate with their own credit card companies. in fact everything is negotiable. So ask for what you want or you'll never get it the end drawer. False package deals always offer the best breaks false ish if you're moving into a new apartment and you think you'll be using cable wifi and a landline.

I wouldn't so if you're not planning to use all of the programs in the package no matter what it says in those all caps promotions. The cartman you is the way you wanna go true or false you can use your full spending limit on your credit card false. I know if you get approved for a five thousand dollar credit limit you think the limit is five thousand dollars but if you max out your credit card your score is going to take a major hit so your actual spending max should be between thirty and thirty five percent of what you're on.

Can you please tell us what you guys do. Michael do you wanna go first. Yeah absolutely happy to happy to jump in so a home technology integrator as it's developed over the years to be somebody that knew.

We've all experienced like outdoor you know people want to listen to audio outdoors and they may or may not have speakers lesions and so. Our job is to integrate all that technology technology into the home experience into the the the experience of living in that place. you know in his best As as we can you know as the client wants it and of course within budget and with all the other components and people that have to be involved in project we really just try to execute that vision and so what kind of things are people asking you to to integrate aaron. It's really runs. The gamut depending on the size of the home be the homeowners their comfort level oftentimes two different homeowners different users. That system have different needs and different. You know comfort level so for residential generally you can almost expect there's gonna be some element of lighting control.

Keen Research CEO Ognjen Todic on the Advantages of 'On-Device' ASR
"To answer your question directly. Why device what. When does it make sense I think there's a lot of different reasons. Why on device makes a lot of sense. I think a number of use cases You know one is the speech. Data doesn't leave device so by design. The system is compliant by with different. Legacy legal frameworks for privacy. So think about copa like jog online. Privacy protection act. She went health industry. So you don't have to you know it. Just it's by design. It's it's compliant Rawson enterprise settings. There is a lot of security concerns so people companies don't like Any kind of data speed today. You're listening Having listening devices to third party. So that's that's a big problem. That i think is is sold by device processing The second one is it works off line. so you don't need internet connectivity. And that's kind of a no brainer when we talk about on device but but would we been seeing actually. It's not just a this works when there's no internet there's lots of situations where you might have internet but it's not reliable for example right so you might might be wifi in hostile or somewhere We've seen quite a few comments from our customers prospects. They say you know what we can connect. Sometimes it's really hard to actually figure out that sometimes it's gonna stop working so we want to run it on bites the thirties system architecture. It's much simpler. There's no dependency on the backhand there's dependency on internet connectivity. You don't have to think about scaling like imagine you have millions of users. Suddenly you need a back end. It's gonna address that and not just not just the recipe. That's also another thing. That's tricky with the usage. You might have a million users but they all connected the same time. That's the problem right for the back. End i so much. Simpler system. architecture responsiveness is also an interesting fact. There are no network. Delays could be very very responsive With on device it's easy to customize things also you know the whole thing about cloudy is sharing the resources in the cloud and once you start using a lot of customization options than you lose. The sharing part in some of that can be fixed a certain extent but but definitely with our approach. Our customer is using gain one way an customer be totally different way. it's customizable basically and the last factor which is predictable pricing so loud services typically charge by usage With us it's it's different and so There's no mismatch between the cost side and revenue side for customers. They know exactly how much they will be paying for a what they're getting.
Malvertising's Impact on Marketers Revenue With CEO of Clean.io Matt Gillis
"Whenever i think of malvern is in or advertising abuse. I go back into thinking about what happened ebay. Which was things like. Cookie stuffing and basically cloning user experiences. That weren't happening to take credit for real legitimate marketing transactions. Help me understand what malveaux -tising is an who's really affected by it today. So melting is effectively a hybrid of the words militias in advertising. And you know there's a lot of really great folks that are spending money on digital media and digital advertising to reach real users and having gauging with users sell things and hopefully positive impact from a brand perspective and then there's also a whole bunch of folks who use digital advertising to have i would say shady engagements with end users. And that's what malveaux -tising is it's bad actors who are buying ads on websites and they're hoping to take over that user experience and drive that user somewhere where that user probably did not intend to go. You probably had it happen to you as well ben. We're you're scrolling on a website and then all the sudden it redirects you and says hey. Congratulations benue an amazon gift card. Click here and if you click the close button. It doesn't work. And if you click the back button it just refreshes the page at. You're on in these bad. Actors have figured out how to buy these little tiny ads on pages and most real advertisers would hope to have half a percent click through rate with their ads. Will these bad actors have figured out how to basically take a user through one hundred percent of the time that they want to to those pages so you talk about how affiliates may or may not play into this space basically what these guys do is they figured out how to make money from this when they drive you to that landing page usually. There's some bounty that. They're looking to get paid on whether that's a survey completion. Some things that we've seen are hey comcast user take this survey and you'll have a chance to win ex. Well what they've done. Is they very specifically targeted comcast wifi customers and they're driving those offers back and if they capture the person's email address and get them to complete the survey.

You'll go to the alexa app. You'll go to your settings. You should see something there for sidewalk and you can turn it off. Amazon is also saying that if you purchase an eligible echo device for the first time during the setup process. You'll have an option to say whether you want to keep sidewalk on disable it during that process. So there's a couple of different ways you can do it if you really wanted to stop completely now
