|sj||Samsung said Friday it expects losses related to the discontinuation of the Note 7 to end up in the mid-2 trillion won range for Q4 and 1 trillion won in Q1. That would be a total of about US$3 billion. Wednesday Samsung estimated third quarter losses at around US$2.3 billion making the total loss more than $5 billion. Samsung plans to expand sales of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to make up some of the gap. Samsung also said it will make, "significant changes in its quality assurance processes."||http://www.reuters.com/article/us-samsung-elec-smartphones-idUSKCN12D363|

The tags are similar to the existing Highly Cited or In Depth tags. Sites must add proper markup and follow commonly accepted criteria to be considered fact checking articles.||http://www.pcworld.com/article/3131505/data-center-cloud/google-news-battles-era-of-spin-with-fact-check-label.html|
|sj||IBM, Google, Nvidia, AMD and five other companies have partnered on an open specification to improve data center server perofrmance. Open Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface (OpenCAPI) promises to speed up big data, machine learning, analytics and more by up to 10 times. The spec will be available publicly by the end of the year with serveres and related products expected in the second half of 2017. Intel is not part of the consortium.||http://www.reuters.com/article/us-technology-consortium-idUSKCN12E0C5?feedType=RSS&feedName=technologyNews|

|SM||A team of scientists from the University of Nottingham with support from the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS), has determined that the universe contains at least two trillion galaxies, 10 times more than the highest previous estimates. The previous estimate was 100 to 200 billion. 90 percent of all galaxies are hidden from us, and only the remaining 10 percent can be seen. The paper detailing the study was published today in the Astrophysical Journal.||http://www.popularmechanics.com/space/a23361/universe-20-times-more-galaxies/|

|Akamai (ack-a-my), the company that previously hosted KrebsOnSecurity until a recent DDoS forced them to close their account with the site, researched popular IoT devices and found that 2 million devices have a flaw in their use of SSH.||https://www.wired.com/2016/10/akamai-finds-longtime-security-flaw-2-million-devices/|
|The study finds that SSH isn't set up correctly on many Internet of Things devices and makes them susceptible to a decade-old SSH vulnerability.||https://www.akamai.com/us/en/multimedia/documents/state-of-the-internet/sshowdown-exploitation-of-iot-devices-for-launching-mass-scale-attack-campaigns.pdf|
|What is SSH? Secure Shell protocol - It's used to remotely gain access to a device from another network, allowing admin control to of the device. Usually ok if used with credentials a user sets up - NOT default creds. Unfortunately many IoT devices just use default configurations because convenience over security.|
|Akamai found a specific DVR uses default creds of admin/admin which an attacker can use to SSH into the device from anywhere on the web. The attacker then uses TCP tunneling to obfuscate themselves and make data look like it's coming from the IoT device, not the attacker.||https://krebsonsecurity.com/2016/10/europe-to-push-new-security-rules-amid-iot-mess/|
|TCP is Transmission Control Protocol. When used with SSH, a person can tunnel TCP packets through SSH in an encrypted tunnel which basically hides the originating IP address. Any traffic routed through this SSH tunnel will appear as if it is originating from the networked DVR-type device’s IP address. This is why when the Mirai botnet or other similar botnets look like they are coming from thousands of different IoT devices instead of one attacker's IP address.||https://www.euractiv.com/section/innovation-industry/news/commission-plans-cybersecurity-rules-for-internet-connected-machines/|
|While the attack itself is old, the devices it's being used on are new and are not considering security before hitting the market. Now the European Commission is looking into creating legislation for IoT manufacturers to follow regarding security.|
|Users can protect themselves by not using default creds, buying smart - buy devices that allow you to use your own credentials. Also disable remote access to SSH (22), Telnet (23) and HTTP/HTTPS (80/443) (routers usually let you do this in the admin panel)|

nvdia is a big part of cloud based implementations at this point as well as those other companies you mentioned on DTNS. both AWS and azure have VMs that can have a GPU are possible. GPU is vital for large data analysis (like medical or science might use) and media (video rendering, editing, etc) in the cloud can all be improved with GPU support. If you were nvidia, would you rather sell geforce cards to consumers or thousands of tesla cards to a server farm?
all the best,
|Hey Tom and team,|
Was listening to yesterday's podcast and Adonis's concern about all those accessories he bought for the Galaxy Note 7.
Want to report that Amazon is giving refunds to all those who bought Note 7 accessories even if outside the 30 day return period.
More about that here: http://www.androidauthority.com/amazon-refund-note7-accessories-outside-return-window-721768/
While it may not apply to Adonis since he may not be an Amazon customer for those particular parts, hopefully this helps anyone else who is facing a similar predicament.
PS - GO CUBS!!
I'm a little behind on the show
I just was listening to you and Patrick talk about the Samsung Notes issue
I just flow back from
Toronto to Moncton on an Air Canada 🇨🇦 flight
The attendants didn't just ask for Notes to be turned off, but collected all Samsung phones.
It goes to your point about Samsung brand being affected
None tech people really don't know the difference between one model and the next. This will affect mine share in the future for them
Keep up the great work
|Tom and team;|
As a public health worker (and grad student) this caught my eye from the BBC:
Basically, a company called Zipline has set up in the country to deliver blood by drone to places that may not have an on-site blood bank. They mention in the story that this has the blessing of Rwanda’s President and the country’s Technology Minister (I think that’s who it was?). I’d love to get Darren’s perspective on this, as well as anyone else on the show.
As a public health worker, this is really exciting to me because of the specific application they’re using it for. In hospitals in the US and other highly developed nations, there are often on-site blood banks. This means (in my experience, anyway) that you can store blood in, say, an ER trauma room, and then replenish it from downstairs after you’re done working on the current patient. In many less developed places (Disclosure: I have no experience in Rwanda), they may have issues replenishing through anything other than a once-a-day truck delivery. That’s highly simplified, but you can see the problem. The fact that they have been given what looks like a license to work out the kinks, so to speak, makes me very, very happy.
Keep up the good work, and as both your boss and a Chicago fan...stop trying to jinx the Cubs, Tom. Please.

|Amazon and VMWare announced an anticipated partnership called "VMWare Cloud on AWS." All of VMWare's software-defined data center products— like vSphere, VSAN and NSX— will run on AWS. The service is in preview. Invite-only betas will begin in early 2017 and come out of beta mid-year. VMWare will operate, sell and support the product while integrating it with AWS' cloud portfolio, like think storage, database and analytics. Early customers include Western Digital and Sysco. That's Sysco with an S. The one that does restaurant supplies not the one with a C that does networking equipment.||https://techcrunch.com/2016/10/13/vmware-cloud-on-aws/|
