Yahoo Messenger to be Shut down #1289



Yahoo Messenger is to be shut down on July 17th marking a 20-year run when it competed with likes of ICQ. What happened to ICQ anyway? I give you the folks the lowdown on what is happening here and so far the feedback from everyone has been happy with the slightly shorter shows. I also talk about my upcoming travel and my concern for the Ohana on getting help if they need it.

Amazon Counterfeit’s #1286



Amazon Counterfeits are becoming a real problem with consumers getting ripped of and name brands loosing business. Over 56,000 items being sold were determined to be counterfeit. They need to fix this to not only protect consumers but to protect these name brands. Plus I talk about my current gym strategy and hitting the wall like a rock today.

Phone Carriers Selling Real Time Location Data #1282



Phone Carriers have been selling your real-time location data to at least a few companies for years, in a bombshell report that has everyone scratching their head how is this even possible. Only coming to light after a now-fired Sherrif used the data illegally. Turns out cell companies can sell your location data to private companies but require a warrant from the government. Simply amazed that this can be abused. Kirk will be hosting the next two shows as I head to Colombus for my teams annual lock in retreat where we plan our strategy for the year.

Money for SETI #1281



Money for SETI? The last time the US Government gave money to SETI was in 1992. There is some interesting history here that I am not aware of that I will do some research to find out on. Kirk and I also got on the same page today as there had been some disconnects with the show notes. Busy as ever here and it shows.
