Most likely a part one, this episode is rudely interrupted by the discovery of firewall logs that indicate an ongoing attack on the router during the show. A primer for new users who want to kill a half hour with explanations about antenna, 5G, NSA-made malware, routers and basics of how wireless networks fit together for users. MU-MIMO coverage rolls in and the episode touches on the concept of how important insulating your smart gadgets from outside networks is; more so with the eventual arrival of 5G.
With Amazon opening its platform to advertisers in a massive way, we sift through the WSJ article and discuss as thought leaders (!) how old world common sense like selling physical things, not only makes sense but is just what Amazon is doing. Why isn’t anyone else? It’s odd when you sit and think about it – where other sites are specifically after selling our data, Amazon’s busy selling us actual stuff whether you’re online or not. Looks like we’d better warm up to our new overlords. And Linux squeezes in a tiny appearance in today’s episode.
