|tm||As part of the Waymo lawsuit against Uber a report has been made public from Stroz Friedberg which was hired to investigate Otto as part of due diligence before Uber acquired it. The report found that Otto co-founder Anthony Levandowski did access Google files related to driverless cars after he left Google but it did not show that Uber received or used them. Levandowski told Stroz he found five discs of Google info from a Drobo he used at home and had them shredded. Stroz could not verify the shredding. The report also describes communications and behavior implying Otto employees were deleting information and communications ahead of and during Stroz's investigation. Judge William Alsup has delayed the beginning of the trial until December 4th to give Waymo more time to review the materials.|

|:39||tm||Ireland's High Court said Tuesday it will ask the European Court of Justice for a preliminary ruling on the legality of the recently reconstructed arrangement that makes it easy for companies in the US to transfer European user data between the two regions. A complaint led by Max Schrems caused the previous agreement to be thrown out. A new agreement was put in place but is being tested in court as well. The question is whether enough is done to prevent European user data from falling under US surveillance. The court is expected to rule on the implementation of the protections by companies not the overall agreement.|

|tm||Anon writes "I have been following the story of Equifax, and being an application developer myself I have a story that happened with me. ]|
A couple of years ago I was working as a Java developer for a sub contractor who provided development services for a known bank in Europe.
The team in which I worked with was composed of around 7 other java developers and a project manager, each with a different experience and approach for development and bug fixing, with no real standards to follow, and our job was to implement new features and from time to time fix bugs that were reported through a bug tracking system. The banking system was at least 6-7 years old with at least 80-100 people who worked on it, it was a mess and full of bugs.
During one of the bug fixing I was doing I came to discover a small bug that nobody knew about, so I reported it to my supervisor. When he checked and found it has not yet been reported in bug tracking system he told me to ignore it and do nothing until somebody reports it.
His point of view was that the bug passed the verification phase that the bank IT department did when the feature was requested, and if we fix it without them reporting it the sub-contractor will not be able to bill that job.
I was not satisfied with that response, and thankfully not long after that I quit the job.
Surely many other big names follow this strategy, until they fall.."
|sl||Dear Tom, Sarah, Roger & Patrick,|
This is Jeff, a new Associate Producer from sunny Salem, Oregon. I heard your discussion about Linux market share and thought my anecdotal evidence as a 5th grade teacher might be of use!
In the last two years there has been a dramatic increase in the number of use of Chromebooks at my school. Last year 6 Chromebook carts with 36 Chromebooks each were purchased for my school. At the start of this year, an additional 6 carts were purchased. This means that each classroom of older students in my school is able to have their own cart - we don't have to share!
This has made it significantly easier to use Chromebooks, which my students use everyday now, in the classroom. Teachers are also growing much more comfortable with Chromebooks and they are preferred strongly by teachers and students over windows computers in my school.
I love your show and I hope this helps shed some light into the market share discussion.
