|:31||Let's start with a few tech things you should know...|
|BlackBerry reported record software and services revenue of $185 million in Q2. Total revenue was down to $238 million from the previous year's $334 million but BlackBerry reported profit of 4 cents a share compared to last year's loss of 71 cents.|
|Uber CEO Dara Kosrowshahi will meet with the head of Transport for London Tuesday, to discuss the renewal of Uber's license to operate. Uber is appealing the denial of its license which expires September 30.|
|The US FDA approved the Abbot FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System, the first blood sugar monitor that does not require a finger prick. The device uses a sensor attached to the upper arm.|
|:32||Now here are some more top stories|
|Duo security analyzed more than 73,000 Macs and found 4.2 percent of them ran versions of the Extensible Firmware Interface different than what was recommended for the hardware and OS. EFI runs on the motherboard at bootup. The theory is that updates fail but the user receives no notification and so doesn't realize it. Out of date EFI firmware makes a machine vulnerability to EFI attacks which are difficult to detect and remedy. Most require physical access to the device.||https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2017/09/an-alarming-number-of-macs-remain-vulnerable-to-stealthy-firmware-hacks/|
|South Korea's Financial Services Commission announced it will ban raising funds using virtual currencies, including initial coin offerings. China banned ICOs as well and the US has ruled them to be securities subject to the same regulations as other stock. The Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority announced Friday it is investigating ICOs after shutting down a fake cryptocurrency scam. Meanwhile Japan's Financial Services Agency has approved 11 companies as operators of cryptocurrency exchanges. Japan recognized bitcoin as legal tender in April.|
|Thursday US FCC Chairman Ajit Pai wrote an open letter calling on Apple to enable the FM radios that are built into its phone's chips. Apple responded that the chips it use in the iPhone 7 and 8 models do not contain an FM tuner. Older iPhones do use chips with built-in tuners but there is no antenna connected, so turning them on would do very little for the user.|
|YouTube will now only allow external links in video end cards for channels who are members of YouTube's Partner Program. A YouTube channel can apply to join the program after it gets 10,000 public views. YouTube made the change to curb abuses. Partners would not need to monetize videos in order to link in end cards.|
|Nikkei reports that sources tell it Apple wants to reduce reliance on Intel and Qualcomm for chips. The report says |
Apple is supposedly researching its own baseband modem chips. Apple did hire Qualcomm's modem chip engineer Esin Terzioglu in May. Apple is also supposedly considering replacing x86 processors in laptops and desktops with ARM-based designs like it uses in its phones and tablets.
Apple wants to build "core processors for notebooks, modem chips for iPhones, and a chip that integrates touch, fingerprint and display driver functions."
