To start things off, we look at a newly-placed FCC complaint against AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon for selling customer data to 3rd parties. This story is tied to a past podcast topic of the location-based data that can help bounty hunters or those with the money to spend to track a user’s location. From there, we jump into a story on a lawsuit against Amazon for an Alexa recording a child without consent.
After that, we head to the music world where Radiohead was threatened by a hacker to release minidisks from OK Computer. Instead of paying the ransom, they released (for a fee) on the internet for all to see. To close things out, we discuss the deepfake of Mark Zuckerberg that went viral after showing up on Instagram.
