Both companies wish to combat the belief that they allow direct access to the NSA.http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/06/microsoft-like-google-asks-secret-court-if-it-can-publish-data-sharing-total/

slApple Spells Out iTunes Radio Termshttp://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2013/06/26/apple-spells-out-itunes-radio-terms-for-record-labels/

Pandora founder fights back against RIAA, dispels artist royalty mythshttp://thenextweb.com/insider/2013/06/27/pandora-founder-fights-back-against-riaa-dispels-artist-royalty-myths/

.

- WSJ reports during iTunes Radio’s first year, Apple will pay a label 0.13 cents each time a song is played, as well as 15% of net advertising revenue, proportionate to a given label’s share of the music played on iTunes. In the second year, that bumps up to 0.14 cents per listen, plus 19% of ad revenue.
- 0.12 cents Pandora pays labels per listen on its free service. Apple is also offering music publishers more than twice as much in royalties than Pandora does.
- no royalties for some performances of songs that are already in listeners’ iTunes libraries, or songs from album that a listener owns part of, or “Heat Seeker” tracks selected by iTunes for promotions. no pay for songs listeners skip before 20 seconds have elapsed. The company only gets to avoid paying royalties for two songs/hour for per user
- Pandora founder Tim Westergren blog post: RIAA claims Pandora wants to reduce artist royalties by 85%, not true, total lie. Pandora has plan to advocate for solutions to grow total payments to the artists, Pandora always supported fair compensation to artists.
- issue around what Pandora pays per “spin”. a million “spins” on Pandora is the equivalent to a single play on a large FM station (station reaches a ton of ppl, Pandora acct reaches just 1) = $1,370. FM station pays nothing

q: what happens to pandora if apple can give better rates?

iaSony Sacrificed the PlayStation 4 Camera to Beat Microsoft on Pricehttp://www.ign.com/articles/2013/06/26/sony-sacrificed-the-playstation-4-camera-to-beat-microsoft-on-price

.

- IGN has a story about how Sony was able to undercut MS with the PS4
- Acc'g to IGN's sources, Sony was going to include a PS4 camera with every console, but in the months leading up to E3 Sony nixed the plans to keep the cost at $399 instead of $499
- IGN says that this move has "damned" the camera as an accessory and will lead to fragmentation
- It also says the built-in LED move tracker in the DualShock 4 controller is now rendered "largely useless" (it relied on the cam)

Q: looking at this story, did Sony do itself a disservice by undercutting the Xbox One this way?

FTC proposal "Reclaim Your Name" update FCRA
- Give customers access to info data brokers have on you -0 Did you know Acxionm just allowed you to look at what it know about you? Do you even know what Acxiom is?
- Commissioner Julie Brill at Computers Freedom and Privacy Conference “require data brokers to provide notice, access, and correction rights to consumers scaled to the sensitivity and use of the data at issue.”
Q: There is precedent in credit report access. How well did that work? How useful do you think this will end up being?
We tell Trip Advisor our travel plans, open our calendars to Google Now, and post our birthdays on Facebook. We broadcast pictures of our newborns on Instagram; ask questions about intimate medical conditions on WebMD; and inform diet sites what we ate that day and how long we spent at the gym. Google Maps, Twitter and Four Square know where we are. Uber,
Capital BikeShare, and Metro’s trip planner know where we’re going and how we plan to get there.
We spew data every minute we walk the street, park our cars, or enter a building – the ubiquitous CCTV and security cameras blinking prettily in the background – every time we go online, use a mobile device, or hand a credit card to a merchant who is online
or on mobile.

.

37- Twitter is testing a way to replay live events
- Twitter's CEO Dick Costolo spoke at the Brookings Institute on Wednesday and said the company is actively testing out a way for users to replay certain events
- He said “It would be nice to see like a graphic of spikes in the conversation, and what time did the happen … to be able to scroll back to that time and see what happened at that particular moment.”

Q: Is there any value in a Twitter replay? Would you use it?
- In May, we talked about Jennie Lamere who came up with "TWiVo" a spoiler blocker extension for Google Chrome with a similar idea that let you block spoilers until some time had passed

Q: is this twitter just ripping off another dev?

Just a comment on the cardbord bike story in ep.782, sturdinss,
waterproofness, et.c.:

When I was in the military we were issued basic cardboard latrines (just
a box of a convenient size to sit on, with a hole on top, built of that
sturdy kind of cardboard and with a bag inside). They were specified to
seat a man of 100 kilos, and to be outdoor-proof. They did hold a man
of 100 kilos on the first day. *Dramatic pause* After a damp night,
they did not.

But perhaps free enterprise cardboard is better than government issue.
