|:31||TM||Let's start with a few tech things you should know...|
|SL||The Honor 7X phone is now available in the US for preorder for $200 delivering mid-December. It costs £270 in the UK and €300 in Europe with some regions getting immediate shipping. The 5.93-inch phone has a 2:1 display and a 2160x1080 screen though no fast charging or NFC.||https://www.engadget.com/2017/12/05/honor-7x-pricing/|
|PB||Apple has begun selling an unlocked version of the iPhone X without a SIM-card in the US, meaning you can activate it on any carrier.|
You could buy an unlocked phone previously by paying full price but there was confusion about which models would work on which systems, and all came with a carrier SIM card.
|tm||Samsung has begun mass production of the first 512GB embedded Universal Flash Storage chip paving the way for phones with 512GB of storage. The chip has 860MB/s sequential read speed and 255MB/s sequential write speed, meaning a 5GB HD video could transfer in about six seconds.||https://www.engadget.com/2017/12/05/samsungs-512gb-chip-will-give-your-phone-pc-like-storage/|
|sl||Google has pulled YouTube from the Amazon Echo Show... again and also announced that after January 1st YouTube will no longer work on Fire TV boxes. Google says part of the problem is Amazon doesn't carry Chromecast and Google Home, and doesn't make Prime Video available for Google Cast.||https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/5/16738748/google-amazon-feud-youtube-pulled-off-fire-tv-echo-show-nest-devices|
|:32||tm||Now here are some more top stories|
|pb||Nieman Lab's Nicholas Quah says he has learned that Apple acquired Pop Up Archive which makes tools that transcribe, organize and search audio files.|
Its podcast search engine shut down November 28.
|sl||Along with the release of Android 8.1, Google is releasing Android Oreo Go Edition to OEMs. The low-end Android configuration also comes with a suite of Go versions of Google apps like maps, Gmail, YouTube, Assistant and more. Android Go works on devices with less than 1GB of RAM, using less memory and less storage. ALSO as part of the release of Android Oreo 8.1 the burger emoji has relocated the cheese to above the meat patty and the beer emoji no longer has a gap between the beer and the froth.||https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/12/google-releases-android-go-to-oems-along-with-a-suite-of-low-end-google-apps/|
|tm||The US FCC wants to change ISPs from being considered common carriers, back to being considered information services, as they were before 2015. Back then AT&T was sued by the FTC over throttling its unlimited customers. AT&T's argues that since it is common carrier in voice, the FTC had no jurisdiction over its data, even though back then data was an information service. If AT&T wins the case on those grounds, then the reclassification of ISPs as information services would mean that neither the FCC OR the FTC could regulate its data service. The FCC is voting on the reclassification December 14, likely before the court case will be decided.||https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/12/fcc-chair-refuses-to-delay-net-neutrality-vote-despite-pending-court-case/|

|sl||Asus, Lenovo and HP introduced Windows computers that run on Quaclomm's Snapdragon 835 processor with near-instant boot, LTE connections and 20-hour battery life. They run Windows 10 S and with a Windows 10 Pro upgrade can use athe emulator to run 32-bit Windows apps. Users can upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free. It can't run software that uses kernel mode drivers, so no antivirus or games with anti-cheat software. The 12.2-inch HP Envy X2 tablet weighs 1.5 pounds. The 13.3-inch Asus NovaGo sells for $599 at 64GB and $799 for 256 GB. Lenovo will announce its model in the coming weeks. Qualcomm also announced the successor to the Snapdragon 835 will be called the Snapdragon 845. Shocker. It will pair with the X20 LTE modem, which provides gigabit connectivity.||https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/5/16737288/microsoft-windows-10-qualcomm-arm-laptops-launch|

|:45||tm||YouTube said Monday it plans to have more than 10,000 people on staff in 2018 to identify inappropriate content. YouTube hopes adding human staff will help improve its algorithmic efforts at stopping objectionable content.

|sl||Dashes are inherently better than underscores in URLs because underscores often get confused for spaces by the fact that they are at the bottom of the line. Sometimes they just aren't seen and other times covered up with underlines.|
While most people don't type URLs, it still happens. When Google recommended dashes, I think it was saying there is a small but consistent secondary SEO bump by using dashes. It's not that they explicitly added it to the algorithm but it's an effect that always shows up.
So while I agree with Anil Dash and his premise that Google influences how content is created too much, he probably picked the worst example to start explaining the argument with. It is both the most benign thing to worry about and the wrong basis for the argument.
