|t||Google has added a class to its Safe Browsing anti-malware system called "repeat offenders." While any site can immediately ask for review after its fixed any issues, repeat offenders will have to wait 30 days before a warning can be reviewed and removed. Google defines repeat offenders as "sites that repeatedly switch between compliant and noncompliant behavior within a short window of time". Chrome, Firefox and Safari all use Google's safe browsing system.|
|s||Google announced Wednesday that it will integrate Google Map Maker features in to Google Maps in March and retire the standalone Map Maker app. Starting Wednesday, edits made on Google Maps will not be available for moderation in Map Maker. Google told SearchEngineLand that the change was made, "to improve and expedite the Maps editing experience on both mobile and desktop." |
|t||150 academics and industry experts published the U.S. Roadmap for Robotics last week to help guide the new US Congress in allocating funds. The first roadmap published in 2009 led to the National Robotics Initiative in 2011 which budgeted $70 million to advancing US robotics research. The latest roadmap recommends developing interfaces for manufacturing that require no training to use, matching human mobility for things like elevators, stairs and cluttered environments, and estimate users intent in surgical situations. Technology law professor Ryan Calo of the University of Washington edited the roadmap and recommends the government consider a Federal Robotics Commission to provide deep technical expertise to policymakers.|
|s||Facebook launched a new standalone Android app Tuesday that sends ephemeral pictures and videos with the ability to put masks on faces. It's not Poke or Slingshot or Instagram. It's called Flash and its targeted to markets with weak connectivity. Flash is less than 25 MB, 1/3 as big as Snapchat for Android. Flash is available now in Brazil and plans to bring it to other markets.|
|t||The Age reports a man named Tim was part of a team that recorded a video of a quadcopter flying through a suburban Australian neighborhood to a Bunnings Warehouse store. A note and $10 was attached instructing someone to buy the sausage and put it int he bag. The sausage was attached to the quadcopter which was then flown to a person sitting in a hot tub in Sunbury. Australia's Civil Aviation Safety Authority is investigating the incident for violating rules against using a UAV within 30 metres of people, outside of line of sight over a populated area.|
|s||Sony announced Tuesday that it will drop all Viacom-owned channels from its PlayStation Vue service starting Friday, November 11. That includes channels like Comedy Central, Spike and MTV. Sony also announced the addition of BBC America and NBA TV and the future addition of Vice as well as more CBS and Fox local stations. |

|iOS Access for All by Shelly Brisbin||http://www.iosaccessbook.com/|
|Accessibility isn't one thing. There are blind, low vision, deaf, hearing-impaired, cognitive and motor disabilities. How do you approach such a diverse topic?|
What features do you think users would be most surprised to find are available?
What are some examples of features you wish iOS and Android would embrace or fix?
What do people still overlook when designing for accessibility?
What do you think of Microsoft and Apple both leading their recent announcements with videos touting their accessibility?
After they get your awesome book what other resources can people look to to learn more about accessibility?
|We often think of accessibility as screen brightness or font sizes, or sound settings, etc. How much is being done regarding hands free use, etc for those paralized or otherwise?|
How far will voice go to help with accessibility?
Who's leading the way right now?

|Pick of the day:|
|Awhile back we asked folks to send in their favorite VPN providers. Our next recommendation comes from Willie Scott AKA WSCottis1 in chat. |
He writes: "If you have a Raspberry Pi and at least 5 mbps upload speed, then http://www.pivpn.io/ might be the solution for you. It's very simple to set up. It is literally a one line bash script you enter into the terminal and then you follow the instructions on screen.
You can even use it on iOS and Android with the OpenVPN app. I'll put his notes on that in our show notes.
[[If you want to use this on your iPhone or Android device, download the OpenVPN app from the App Store or Google Play. Open a terminal window and generate a .ovpn file by opening the terminal and typing in "sudo pivpn -a" then email it to yourself. Open that email with the .ovpn attachment on the phone itself and choose to open it with the OpenVPN app, enter the password you specified earlier and presto, you've got VPN on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device.]]
Willie also sent along a video that walks you through the steps!
He says "Sounds like a lot but it really isn't, and the best part, it's free.
If you don't have a Pi or fast Internet at home, then Tunnelbear (https://www.tunnelbear.com/) is my favorite."
