Apple iPod Touch end of an Era #1601



Apple has decided to stop the production of the iPod Touch. This is sad as the first iPod debuted in 2001. So the series of devices have had a pretty great run. I will be on the hunt to add one of the older models to the device graveyard in the studio.

Russia is getting Cyber Attacked #1599



Finally, the table turns and Russia is on the defense as hackers go after targets in Russia. They seem to have great success. Considering hackers largely left Russia alone before they are now actively going after some pretty big targets. Russia is proving to be quite a week and sadly may feel itself being pushed back in a corner. Dangerous times.

The simple fact that the board is looking at rejecting his offer shows things are about to get ugly.

Hostile Takeover of Twitter? #1597



Is Elon Musk posing to do a hostile takeover of Twitter after he announced he will not join the board of directors and that he may take a bigger stake? Also, my order for Starlink has finally gotten approved and hopefully, I will have a Starlink dish and be out of broadband hell soon enough.

Elon Musk buys 9.2% stake in Twitter #1596



Elon Musk one to put money where his mouth has purchased a 9.2% stake in Twitter after complaining several weeks ago that he did not feel they were living up to free speech standards and threatening to build his own platform. So I guess when you can’t beat them join them and buy your way in.

Hacking a Decommissioned TV Satellite #1595



Researchers ran a test on a decommissioned TV Satellite with permission to see how easy it would be to take a channel over and broadcast to North America. Something in me would be pretty thrilled to be able to broadcast and distribute the way these folks did. While they did it with permission I am sure we will see folks doing it for real in the years to come.
