Twitter Needs Helps, Snapchat and Instagram are in trouble, and Bumble Censors

Twitter

It’s always a sticky situation when companies try to censor their users. It happened with Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. Now it’s Bumble’s turn. The CEO wants to ultimately censor the net because she somehow has the moral authority to do it. Banning one image does not make the thing go away. Banning an image does not make your community “safe.” I’ll discuss the ridiculous statements and how ignorant it sounds on this episode.

What I Talk About This Week:

  • Twitter Needs Help
  • Bumble Censorship
  • New Feature For Snapchat
  • Snapchat and Instagram get into trouble
  • How Bumble will censor you

I dig into Vault 7, hate on Instagram and vulnerabilities in tech

Vault 7

Today’s Episode

Vault 7, it sounds like a new vault from Fallout, but, it’s not. The bombshell dropped on Tuesday about what the government is up to. It’s usually no good. It was discovered that the CIA is spying on everyone. They can do some terrible acts too. Time to talk about this and understand that tech has vulnerabilities. All new tech has mistakes. These are usually exploits of vulnerabilities. However, the government should be willing to help companies combat these things. I will talk about why the government is wrong in doing this and more. Enjoy!

Video Cards, CPUs, Snapchat IPO, Facebook tools oh my!

Snapchat IPO

Today’s Episode

Snapchat IPO is here! People are wondering if this company could rival Facebook. Twitter has not been a great contender for a while. They are still figuring out who they are and time is not on their side. This could be the best contender to rival Facebook in a long while.

I also talk about AMD and Nvidia products unveiled this week and so much more! Enjoy!

Senator live streams, Twitter marches to censorship and Netflix blunder

Netflix Blunder

Today’s Episode

Netflix blunder is nothing new now. This is the same thing every business is doing. Hate a specific group because it is socially acceptable. The best argument is that if you did this to any other group, that would be horrible. However, why is it acceptable to do it to white people? Netflix should be prepared for some loss in subscribers and a hit in their revenue. People will vote with their wallets. Be prepared.

Twitter looks to be marching towards censorship. This is looking more like a full control on what people can say on their network. Funny thing, when they were new, they wanted public discourse. Now, they would rather tell you it’s not good. Find out more down below.

Tech media stop virtue signaling and Apple, Google, Facebook shut up

Tech Media

Today’s Episode

Oh, tech media, what the hell is your problem. Yes, you should not bow to all of your reader’s whims, but, berating them is not good for your business. If your readers are telling you to report on tech more than politics, that may be something to look at. If this same group grows larger and larger, then, it’s time to listen. Writing an article about how they should shut up, means you should be doing the same thing. It’s time to stop pretending you have the moral authority to tell your readers they are wrong. Stop.

This leads me to the tech companies. Stop. Your arguments are terrible about the executive order on immigration. First, it’s not a ban. Stop calling it that. Second, no, your business was started by a White American. Last, we are not a nation of immigrants and stop using that argument. We were, but how long does it take to not be an immigrant?

Find out more down below.

Facebook less personalized and why the media hates facts, logic, speech?

Facebook

Today’s Episode

Facebook is doing it again! They are copying Snapchat, but, really, just taking Instagram stories and putting it on Facebook. So, they are copying, the copy. They are putting new ads in Messenger and doing away with a personalized trending topic. It’s an interesting move for Facebook. I really do not know what to think about this. Then we have Ellen K. Pao. If you do not know her, she is the former CEO of Reddit. She’s back on the censorship train. She is calling on Jack to ban the President from Twitter. The funny part is she disabled comments on her Medium post. Find out what I have to say about this and more!

I travel down the rabbit hole of CES 2017, full of weird tech.

CES 2017

Today’s Episode

It’s January and that means CES is back! CES 2017 seems to be about the smart fridges and convincing people about making their homes smart. It’s bigger this year. LG and Samsung are trying to persuade people into an always-connected life. Will people buy into it, is the question. There are some grave security questions about always connected devices. None of the companies seem too concerned about it either. This security concern does warrant me to hold off until they address this issue. No one should have their TV or fridge hijacked and told to pay money for it. However, I am hopefully these companies will wise up and invest time and money into it. This is the best way to get more customers and ensure they stay loyal.

Today’s Tech News and Looking for a Bright Tech Future

tech future

Today’s Episode

Well, look at that, 2016 is almost done. Isn’t it glorious? Yes! This episode is going to be looking ahead to the tech future! Plus, some tech news. I will look back at what happened in 2016 and what I want to see in 2017. There are just some things that need to die… Flash! Please finally go away! Plus, these dubious bullying rules and “fake news.” I’m looking at you Facebook and Twitter. I want these social networks to stop policing and get rid of tailoring feeds. Tailored feeds are what got us into this hyper drama culture we face. I always think fake news is subjective to the person. We want to believe in what most people deem true. Now, that doesn’t mean I don’t think there aren’t some universal truths. I’m tired of one side calling the other side’s reporting fake. That’s not a debate and we need to be open to the opposing opinion. However, I do concede there are some sites that do misleading headlines and poor research skills, but, that is a minority. Let’s hope some of this gets resolved in 2017!
