|x||Facebook has hired journalist Campbell Brown (not to be confused with the former AFL and current Kabaddi player) to lead its news partnerships team. Brown described her role as helping, “news organizations and journalists work more closely and more effectively with Facebook.” Facebook says Brown will not be involved in content decisions. Instead she will work with news organizations to help them meet journalistic and business goals on Facebook.||http://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/06/business/media/facebook-campbell-brown-media-fake-news.html|
|x||Intel announced Compute Card, a 94.5mm by 55mm by 5mmm card computer with CPU, GPU, RAM, storage and wireless connectivity. The idea is to make it easy to upgrade the internals of smart devices— TV, fridge, blender— without having to replace the entire device. Chips with thermal design power up to 6W could fit inside which could include Core M and Y i5 and i7s found in laptops. The card uses USB-C plus extension to connect to its device which gives access to USB, PCIe, HDMI, and DisplayPort. Specs, availability, and pricing will be announced in June. Partners include Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Sharp along with Seneca Data, InFocus, DTx, TabletKiosk, and Pasuntech.||http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/01/intels-compute-card-is-a-pc-that-can-fit-in-your-wallet/|
|Apple filed an SEC document in advance of its February 28th shareholder meeting which notes that Apple did not meet its target performance goals for net sales and operating income in 2016. That means executive received 89.5% of their maximum cash incentives. Executives received 100% in 2015.||http://www.macrumors.com/2017/01/06/apple-shareholders-meeting-2017/|
|x||Samsung expects its Q4 profits to rise 50% year over year. The company expects an operating profit of 9.2 trillion won, roughly $7.8 billion, which would be the highest since Q3 2013. Samsung will see a fall in revenue of about 0.6 percent because of a $2.1 billion profit hit due to the Note 7. Samsung’s chip division is expected to earn a record 4 trillion won thanks to strong demand from smartphone makers and high-end data storage products. Healthy sales of the Galaxy S7 are also expected to help mobile sales rebound. Depreciation of the Won against the dollar also helped.||http://www.reuters.com/article/us-samsung-elec-results-idUSKBN14P2N1|
|x||Norway will begin a year-long process of shutting down FM radio broadcasts starting with the city of Bodoe on January 11. Digital Audio Broadcasts are already in place though not all customers have proper receivers or adapters. Many citizens are unhappy because of the cost of new equipment. Switzerland plans a similar shift from 2020 and the UK and Denmark are also planning a switch.||http://www.reuters.com/article/us-norway-radio-idUSKBN14P1TH|
|The WikiLeaks Task Force twitter account posted today “We are thinking of making an online database with all "verified" twitter accounts & their family/job/financial/housing relationships.” and “We are looking for clear discrete (father/shareholding/party membership) variables that can be put into our AI software. Other suggestions?” It later explained the database would be used “to develop a metric to understand influence networks based on proximity graphs.”||http://www.theverge.com/2017/1/6/14193416/wikileaks-task-force-twitter-verified-users-database|

|The US Federal Trade Commission or FTC filed a complaint against D-Link accusing the company of failing, “to take reasonable steps to secure its routers and Internet Protocol (IP) cameras, potentially compromising sensitive consumer information, including live video and audio feeds from D-Link IP cameras.” D-Link denies the allegations. D-Link advertised security on its website but the FTC says it hard-coded login credentials, did not defend against command injection, left private keys available publicly on its website for six months and left login credentials in clear text on mobile devices.||http://www.networkworld.com/article/3154899/security/ftc-takes-d-link-to-court-citing-lax-product-security-privacy-perils.html|

|I think it was Shannon that said she hoped that someone would scan your IoT devices and let you know if they were vulnerable.|
Apparently so does the FTC. They are launching the Home Inspector Challenge with at $25,000 prize.
|Tom and the gang,|
I heard in the after talk on Voice Wars: A New Trope that Justin has some internet issues & ya’ll mentioned that dual ISP’s bonded would be cool. It is, and I do it at home to connect to work. I have Comcast business and AT&T and bond them together using a very cool router Peplink Balance 30 (amazon link). It’s not very expensive and works great. You can also add a 4G LTE modem to it for super redundancy if you want/need.
Check it out.
