There always seems to be a lot going on in tech these days. Microsoft is going to stop bugging you to update to Windows 10. The biggest drama is Facebook silencing conservative views. Facebook has denied these charges, but, I would not be surprised if it was doing that. Tech companies are at an impasse right now. They all seem poised to be more liberal. For better or worse, this can become a headache. The government is looking into why it takes so long to get updates for phones. This is a big problem for consumers since there are some vulnerabilities that can cripple phones. Rendering them useless and a security threat. This is interesting for one reason, the government has said it wants weak encryption, which means weak security. I feel like the government does not know what it wants and keeps changing it’s mind just because. However, it’s good that the FCC and FTC are looking into this. This is a long show, so enjoy an hours worth of funny lines and rants. Enjoy!
