|t||Samsung saw Q4 operaing profit rise 50 percent, it's highest operating profit in three years, led by chip sales. However they still buy chips form other companies too, and the Verge corroborated a report by Forbes that sources say Samsung received the bulk of Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 835 processors. As a result, no phones launching prior to the Samsung Galaxy S8 will use the processor, including the already released HTC U Ultra and the forthcoming LG G6. Samsung has not announced a release date for the Galaxy S8, although rumors from Forbes and ETNews indicate a mid-April release.||http://www.theverge.com/2017/1/24/14367594/samsung-galaxy-s8-snapdragon-835-2017|
LG will announce its next flagship Android phone, the G6 on February 26th during Mobile World Congress.

|t||US President Donald Trump named FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai as chairman, replacing Tom Wheeler who stepped down Friday. Pai and fellow commissioner Michael O’Reilly sent a letter in December that the two planned to revisit the open internet guidelines as soon as possible. |
Pai was an Honors Program trial attorney on the Telecommunications Task force in the US DoJ’s Antitrust Division from 1998 to 2001. He was Associate General Counsel for Verizon until 2003 when he returned to government working for a US Senate subcommitte on oversight and the courts, and for the Department of Justice and FCC. In April 2011 he went to work for law firm Jenner & Block but was nominated to the FCC by President Obama that same year and was sworn in on May 14, 2012.

The other options include Echo, Amazon and Alexa.
|t||The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan voted 4-4 on whether to hear an appeal of its decision forbidding the US government from forcing Microsoft to turn over customer emails stored on servers outside the US. The July 14th decision by a three-judge panel stands. That decision said a domestic search warrant could not cover the foreign-stored emails under the 1986 federal Stored Communications Act. Dissenting judges hoped that a higher court, meaning the supreme court or Congress could overturn the decision.||http://www.reuters.com/article/us-microsoft-usa-warrant-idUSKBN1581YQ|

|Hyperloop Transportation Technologies announced they will open a 3000 sq. meter facility in Toulouse, France. The facility will be at the Francazal Airport, a former military base being redeveloped into an aerospace-transportation village. HTT will develop prototypes and conduct outdoor testing there. Earlier this month, the company announced a deal to connect the 140-miles between Bratislava and Brno with a hyperloop train.||https://techcrunch.com/2017/01/24/hyperloop-transportation-technologies-to-open-up-facility-in-toulouse-france/?ncid=rss|

|Further to Tom and Allison's discussion on Monday. Android has changed their permissions on android marshmallow 6.0 and higher. Now apps built for 6.0+ and running on a phone with OS 6.0+ will ask for permissions as needed and not all at once on install. It works much like iOS this way. |
|Brian Easton wrote "As someone who has built a couple of different projects using a Raspberry Pi I think the most important part of a "clone" is compatibility. Both in terms of hardware and software. On the hardware side it has to be able to take advantage of the existing ecosystem. I should be able to buy an accessory from a shop like Adafruit and use it with any Pi clone. If I need to use an adaptor, that's fine but it needs to work. The GPIO pins should work the same way as on the official Pi. Software is basically the same thing. I don't want to have to rebuild or recompile to make software to work. Optimally it would be capable of running Raspbian."|
|On episode 2951 you solicited opinions about the newly announced single board computer from Asus. I'm a fairly casual maker, but I own a swath of SBCs, most coming from various kickstarters. While many of these boards outperform the raspberry pi in both specs and cost, they generally lack the level of support provided by the makers of the raspberry pi. Because many of these boards are the first produced by some newly-created hardware company they often arrive months late and lacking the basic software to make them function properly. ASUS isn't a new hardware start-up though, they have years of experience producing boards and the drivers necessary to make those boards work. What excites me about the new board is that I believe it has the potential to give raspberry pi some healthy competition from a well-established hardware brand that can keep up with demand and ship stable software. With a comparable price and improved specs compared to the latest raspberry pi, I hope to get my hands on one.|

|The difficulty in finding original source of the other popular image or story is a very old problem. Especially on platforms that offer and encourage easy re-sharing of media, like Tumblr. Many artists that use it as their primary blogging system besides their own website, find that their artwork is commonly repurposed and or even out right stolen. While it is a lot of work to track down the original artist; it is almost always worthwhile.|
I would like to encourage all of the DTNS listeners as much as possible to track down the ritual source of popular images and things of that nature it doesn't just improve the credibility at all so gives proper attribution either rightly or wrongly to the original source.
