|aractor and rpattony both submitted articles about Microsoft downloading Windows 10 to PCs even if the user hasn’t requested the upgrade. Folks who have automatic updates on may have received Microsoft update KB3035583 which puts an almost 6GB file called setup.exe in a folder called $WINDOWS.~BT. Microsoft told The Inquirer “we help upgradable devices get ready for Windows 10 by downloading the files they’ll need if they decide to upgrade.” To get rid of the folder you have to uninstall the Microsoft update THEN delete the folder. Addictivetips.com has a good set of instructions.||http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2425381/microsoft-is-downloading-windows-10-to-your-machine-just-in-case|
|Back in August a photo of all the master keys for TSA locks in the US made the rounds after being published by the Washington Post. Despite being deleted from the Post, the pictures are still on the Internet and some some security enthusiasts converted them into 3D-printable CAD files freely available on GitHub. Engadget reports Unix Geek Bernard Bolduc successfully printed out a key with PLA plastic and unlocked his TSA lock with it.||http://www.engadget.com/2015/09/11/tsa-master-baggage-keys-3d-print/|

|Wired Magazine reports that five years ago, researchers at the University of California at San Diego and the University of Washington found a vulnerability on a GM vehicle but chose NOT to publicly name the make and model of the vehicle, but rather share the exploit code with GM. GM then took five years to fully protect its vehicles from the hacking technique, which used OnStar’s computer to manipulate the braking system of the 2009 Chevy Impala. The researchers said they believe GM took so long because of an industry-wide lack of security preparedness when it comes to Internet-connected cars. ||http://www.wired.com/2015/09/gm-took-5-years-fix-full-takeover-hack-millions-onstar-cars/|

|Pick of the day:|
|Mike sent in a pick for the application “Thessa". Mike says “It adds a Notification Center widget that lets you control the Nest thermostat without unlocking your phone or opening the Nest app. It gives you simple controls allowing you to raise and lower the temperature along with some other useful tidbits. Have been using it since it came out and have not had too many issues since their recent updates.”|

|Scot in London doesn’t think the UK is as lacking in TV apps as Ewen did, mentioning TVPlayer for live broadcast for instance. But he says, “What we are lacking is the "cord cutting drive" that exists in America. Pay TV (and cable TV in particular) has never been anywhere near as prevalent as it is in the US, so the apps are nice to haves, not ways to|
free yourself from Comcast (I don't think Virgin Media inflames the passions the way Comcast appears to).”
In "less sexy than the Musky SpaceX" space news aerojet buying ULA is kind of a big deal as it means that their AR-1 rocket could move up to the prime replacement launch vehicle pushing out the current Jeff bezos incumbent blue origin.
Another "party sort of familiar with the matter"
|RapidEye thinks Apple will still have have a hard time selling iPads in the Enterprise, despite the large size, keyboard and help from Cisco and IBM.|
“What has been holding back iPad sales in big companies isn't the size, or the stylus, or the keyboard (we've had bluetooth keyboards paired with iPads for years now) its iTunes.
Apple requires an iTunes account for every device and does not allow multiple accounts on a single device. This has a couple of major issues for big corporations.
I can sit down to any computer in our corporate domain, log on with my Active Directory credentials, and instantly access all of my resources, services, and applications. In a manufacturing environment, it isn't uncommon to have dozens of people sharing the same laptop …
…until Apple decouples apps and access from iTunes and supports multiple accounts per device, it won't make any more headway into corporate IT than it has up until now.
