[2 Min] Celebrity guests! Here's Brexit supremo David Davis trying to say nanosecond. [NAYNOSECOND.WAV] and Louis Theroux doing someone's random Louis Theroux Programme Generator @louistherouxbot [HULLPORTAL.WAV] and Zuck [ZUCKNOTHUMAN.WAV]
While Zuck is struggling with that, Facebook managed to get a Palestinian bloke arrested by the Israeli police. He's a construction worker, he posted a selfie standing next to his bulldozer, saying “yusbihuhum” (Good Morning in Arabic). Unfortunately Facebook auto-translated it to Hebrew as “Attack Them”. Also Xmas Is Cancelled, artist Jackie Charley blocked for 'sexual' Robin Redbreast
[6 Min] From Facebook to face recognition. Apple's new face recognition got busted two ways, first some hackers 3d printed a fake face, economy version: someone found he could unlock his brother’s phone. (Woman on plane unlocked husband’s phone!) China developing tech said to recognise any citizen’s face in 3 sec. Back to Apple’s most evil thing this month: can't type 'i'. Last on the evilness roundup, Google, new android 'permission' activity recognition - can't turn off!
[10 Min] Finance news! Bitcoin is now worth squillions! here's the funny thing, Mark Karpeles who is awaiting trial for embezzling $387 million from MtGox is looking at a $859 million profit after everybody's paid back at 2014 prices. Plague of stealth miners in your apps & browser. Ethereum has had another bizzaro thing. Famous Dilbert cartoonist on Twitter plugging his own get rich quick coin thing, someone replied “sorry pal I get all my crypto finance tips from the Garfield guy”... blocked. Also on the Twitters, 280 chars! Britain’s emergency services celebrated...
