|:32||Now here are some more top stories|
|tm||The Washington Post reported Monday that Google has discovered that Russian organizations spent less than $100,000 on ads that ran on YouTube, Gmail and other Google properties.

|wh||Facebook Chief Security Office Alex Stamos posted several tweets Sunday in response to fake news and election meddling accusations. Stamos said he's seen criticisms driven by stereotypes and straw men.and wrote: "Nobody of substance at the big companies thinks of algorithms as neutral. Nobody is not aware of the risks." Facebook has informed advertisers that ads that target “politics, religion, ethnicity or social issues” will have to be manually approved.|
|im||Also tweeting on Sunday - Microsoft Windows head Joe Belfiore, who gave this Windows Phone update: "building new features/hardware aren't the focus." Belfiore did say the company will continue to support the platform with bug fixes and security updates. Side note: Belfiore says he uses an Android phone.|
|tm||Benchmarking company Futuremark collected 100,000 benchmark results for seven different iPhone models across three versions of iOS to create performance comparisons. Futuremark found that GPU and CPU performance remains generally consistent across iOS updates with a few dips or rises. Devices feeling slower as they get older then is likely caused by software meant for newer hardware rather than some kind of intentional slowdown at the operating system level.|
|wh||The US FCC granted Alphabet an experimental license to operate its Project Loon internet service in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Project Loon uses helium balloons to deliver LTE and can help the islands regains some connectivity lost during the recent hurricanes. Alphabet will need to partner with a local carrier like Telefonica. Meanwhile Puerto Rico's Governor Ricardo Rossello has had talks with Elon Musk about sending batteries to Puerto Rico in conjunction with solar panels to help restore the power grid. German microgrid company Sonnen is also shiping batteries to Puerto Rico.|

|:54||Messages of the day (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
|In response to Mike's question last week about pacemakers, I work at Medtronic, one of the three major cardiac active implantable medical device (AIMD) manufacturer, all three of which are primarily located here in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St Paul.|
I am not aware of a web site that does direct comparisons of pacemakers from the manufacturers around the world, and much of the marketing material is targeted at cardiologists. Pacemakers are a very mature device family and the technologies are well developed. Mike should be engaged with his cardiologist during the device selection process. Some cardiologists have preferences by manufacturer, some selection can be driven by clinic/hospital contract and insurance reimbursement. Pacemakers and electrical leads are expensive devices.
Mike can look at the three pacemakers we currently sell and use the information with his doctor:
The two other major US device manufacturers, Boston Scientific and St Jude, have similar patient information.
I can't give medical device, but if he would like other information, I could possibly get him in touch with a local field engineer that can answer other questions he has.
Hope this helps -

|Duncan wrote in to recommend twofactorauth.org as well but he pairs it up with a second service to help him keep on top of two factor authentication.|
"I use Follow That Page (https://www.followthatpage.com/), that's my preferred but there are several similar free services.
Follow That Page is a service that monitors up to 20 sites daily (free of charge) for any changes, and notifys you whenever there is a change to the site.
Sure sometimes I get updates on minor formatting changes but thankfully I normally only get one or two emails a week and I can quickly tell from that email what has changed.
If it's just formatting and not a service that myself of my friends or family use then I just delete it, 5 seconds and I'm done. If it is something of interest you're one click away from finding out what has been implemented and how to use it to better protect yourself online.
Yes not every service is being monitored but the majority of "the big" ones are and the community at TwoFactorAuth.org are open to suggestions.
I have found this combination very useful in finding out when old services learn new tricks and being able to quickly implement better security when it's offered.
Thanks for the show I'm a proud patron and was very pleased to watch the whole DTNS crew reach the recent milestone, Congratulations all and I can't wait to see what is in DTNSs future.
