|x||Google's Waze Rider carpool service is now available to all users in the San Francisco area. Users are currently limited to 2 rides a day, as Google intends the service to be used for actual carpooling to work, not a replacement for taxis. Drivers are also only compensated for mileage, it's not deisgned to be a part-time job. As such Google does not plan to require drivers for the service to provide proof of insurance, photo identification, or pass a background check.||https://www.engadget.com/2016/09/29/google-waze-rider-ride-sharing-platform-bay-area/|
|x||Amazon Game Studios announced its first 3 titles that will feature deep Twitch integration, New World a massively multiplayer, open-ended sandbox game, Crucible which sadly is not a taut colonial legal drama about witchcraft and Breakaway a 4-on-4 4v4 mythological sport brawler. Breakaway will let streamers customize their experience with real time stat overlays, as well as let broadcasters invite followers to play, setup viewer polls, and allow match wagering of Twitch's new Stream+ game currency. --- Also users are reporting seeing something called Twitch Prime appear online. Twitch Prime will apparently include “free loot every month,” as well as exclusive discounts on new-release games, as well as ad-free viewing, and more.And it says it will come free with Amazon Prime.||http://www.theverge.com/2016/9/30/13117276/amazon-game-breakaway-twitch-currency|
|x||In Poland Friday, Facebook launched "Messenger Day" which lets people share photos and videos, that can be decorated with filters and stickers, that disappear in 24 hours. Just Like Instagram Stories! You can draw on images and add text. But filters are organized around prompts like "I'm feeling," "I'm doing," or "Who's up for" with a range of filters that fit the sentiment. Facebook told TechCrunch "we are running a small test of new ways for people to share those updates visually."||https://techcrunch.com/2016/09/30/messenger-day/|
|HTC is launching Viveport in 30 countries Friday, a store for non-gaming VR content. The 60 launch titles in the store cover education, design, art, social, video, music, sports, health, fashion, travel, news, shopping and more. Some titles are on sale for $1 at launch.||https://techcrunch.com/2016/09/30/htc-launches-its-viveport-vr-store-globally/?ncid=rss|
|xxx||US security exploit broker Zerodium has tripled to $1.5 million what it will pay for exploits against fully patched iPhones and iPads. It also doubled to $200,000 its price for previously unknown vulnerabilities in Android. Zero-day exploits for Flash also rose from $50K to $80K. Zerodium sells exploits to governments for use in surveillance. Zerodium founder Chaouki Bekrar says the high prices are a result of systems being harder to compromise.||http://arstechnica.com/security/2016/09/1-5-million-bounty-for-iphone-exploits-is-sure-to-bolster-supply-of-0days/|

|ICANN's contract with the US Department of Commerce to operate the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority ends today, September 30. The IANA most famously operates the Domain Name System. ICANN instead will operate IANA under a model similar to other Internet organizations like the Internet Engineering Task Force. The multistakeholder oversight that takes over October 1st consists of a governmental advisory committee, a technical committee, industry committee, internet users and telecommunications experts who's advice to ICANN is non-binding. Attorneys General in Arizona, Oklahoma, Nevada and Texas filed suit in the Southern District of Texas court to block the handover.|

|1. The actual news: Today the contract between ICANN and the US Department of Commerce over IANA operation principally of the Domain Name System will end. Starting Tomorrow October 1, ICANN will have IANA as a subsidiary subject to a multistakeholder model of supervision. Four attorneys general filed suit today to block the move.|
2. The headline fears: The US is giving away the Internet, Russia and China can now take over the Internet. If we don't do this the US will run rampant on the Internet.
3. The one-sentence explanation: Changes to one file, the root zone file, which is maintained by Verisign, no longer need to be rubberstamped by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration.
4. The philosophical debate
|Great thread on Hacker News discussing the nuts and bolts|
Some perceived US control as a threat, though it wasn't exercised in practice.
Some pushed for fundamentally changing the way ICANN works (putting under UN control etc.)
This will not change the way ICANN works but remove the objection about perceived US influence.
- Domain like .eg wants to change an IP address. sends root zone change request to ICANN
- ICANN sends to Verisign to implement and NTIA to review
- NTIA verifies ICANN followed protocol
- Verisgn implements change
- Domain like .eg wants to change an IP address. sends root zone change request to ICANN
- ICANN verifies protocol. Sends to Verisign to implement
- Verisgn implements change
- Verisign (in Virginia) will continue to hold an indefinite contract to operate the root zone for the IANA. (governed by US law it can only lose the right if it doesn't perform the duties)
- The US National Telecommunications Information Administration will no longer need to rubber stamp every change to the root zone. (the only one they ever really challenged was .xxx and they lost that argument)
- Multi-stakeholders who have always driven ICANN decision-making continue to do so.
- US Government will continue to administer .mil, .gov, .us, and .edu
- US government will continue to be able to order .org .com and .net domains blocked because the companies (Virginia's Verisign manages .net and .com Virginia's Public Internet Registry operates .org) that oversee those domains (NOT ICANN OR IANA) are US companies.
- The US will continue to have international cooperation agreements that allow it to block other domains operating outside the US
- Charges violation of
- the property clause of the US Constitution which prohibits giving away US government property without authorization by Congress.
- First ammendment by chilling speech
- Administrative Procedure Act by acting beyond statutory authority."
Worry that China, Russia and Iran will have the power to censor the Internet. All three do have participation in the multi-stakeholder oversight. As do almost all countries.
|The Multi-stakeholder model|
- This is not a new organization. It's the existing ICANN oversight model
- IANA becomes subsidiary of ICANN.
- Customer Standing Comittee monitors IANA.
- Multistakeholder review process set up for performance of the naming fucntions
- Service Level Agreement (SLA) set up with Regional Internet Registries
- Internet Architecture Board, Internet Engineering Task Force, and ICANN continue protocols agreementes, policies and oversight as before.
- Open process that *anyone* can participate in
- 160 governments act in an advisory role on one committee that must come to a consensus before it issue advice.
|Pick of the day:|
I always hear you talking about using a VPN when accessing the internet from public places. I'm starting to do more freelance work and working out of coffee shops and such. Which VPN company do you use?

|Scott in Iowa wrote about trying to exchange his Note 7 at a Verizon store. He was told he could exchange it for a blue model but that silver and black versions were unavailable because they "had to be placed in ”quarantine”. He called Samsung and Verizon and the only more information he got was that silver and black versions might be available October 10. |
It's hard to say what that means exactly but my best guess is that Note 7s are caught up in the Hanjin shipping bankruptcy which is also affecting iPhone 7 shipments. Hat tip to BigJim in our audience who's been keeping all os us up to speed on this by email and Slack comments.
|Michael is a datacenter architect for a 75,000 seat company and said of Apple's plans for the enterprise. "If Apple wants to make major in roads into large business/enterprise sales they are going to have to come up with a better support model for business. They must realize bringing 50 ipads to the genius bar is not a viable option for most businesses. They need to understand they have a part in troubleshooting why an Apple laptop is transferring files slow to a Windows file server. Enterprise will never be their homogeneous walled garden solution they have on the consumer side. "|
|Regarding Samsung's "exploding washing machines" Tad writes: "as a sales associate with 15 years experience at a local independent appliance store that has been in business for over 40 years, I can tell you, this issue can and has happened with other manufacturers. You are absolutely right that Samsung is getting killed because of the recent issues with the phones.|
All these machines have sensors to detect an out of balance situation and stop the machine to make the consumer re-balance the load. Its a safety vs. convenience issue. Make the threshold too low and the consumer is continually having to re-balance. Don't make it sensitive enough and this type of problem could happen. Samsung seems to have missed the mark leaning more toward customer happiness than safety. This problem could probably be fixed with a firmware update to lower the shut down threshold. Too late for that now. Customers will demand a hardware engineering fix at this point.
As always, proud to be a Co-Executive Producer...
PS: I still watch the show on that Samsung refrigerator from time to time. I hope those don't start exploding!
