Amazon Reviews Removed by Bribe? #1313



Amazon Reviews apparently can be manipulated by a simple bribe. Goes to show you that Amazon is likely not paying their employees enough if a payment from $80 to $2000 can get sales reports, negative reviews removed and a whole bevy of nefarious things. Tonight I cover that and other top stories and lay out some re-involvement I am going to have in the content of the website. It is time my voice was back on the front page of the website along with my writing team. Lots more to come here as I re-inject myself beyond the show recording.

Where is Larry Page #1312 – GNC



The big question some are asking is where is Larry Page. He seems to have really gone underground for a long time according to internal sources at Google. While not entirely true he is definitely not as engaged as he once was and in my opinion should the man not be deserving to do what he wants. He has built an empire only second in size to Apple and that’s saying a lot. Additionally, Apple did not have one more thing besides a phone, but they really got my attention of the Apple Watch Gen 4. I am definitely going to see if any of my kids want to buy my Gen 3 so I can upgrade. I really am intrigued by the ECG function. I give you all a couple of homework assignments tonight so let’s see if your paying attention.

Apple Announcements Revealed #1311



I do a deep dive on the upcoming Apple Announcements on what will be revealed on Wednesday. We will see how close I and all the others weighing on predictions on this. I am hoping for a Mac Mini Pro as that would fit into some long-term planning I have here at Geek News Central. I am really excited about the new iPhones as I am due a refresh and will definitely be looking at a which phone to pick up. I have largely caught up on my backlog. So I will have some time to work on some new initiatives here.

Mobile Carriers are Throttling Video #1310



Did not take to long for the mobile carriers to start throttling video from Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime. It appears throttling to be gaining steam as all pretense of net neutrality are gone. I am happy to be back in the studio. As always I have a pile of work that never seems to get caught up on but hey that’s the life of a business owner. Very thankful for the work and business. Some updates on the GoDaddy promotion on the show as well today.

Apple Phone Event #1309



Apple phone event is on Sept 12th and we are expecting some new phone size entrances. Google is in the political firing line, and I hope I bring a civil conversation to a conversation that is percolating out there. Plus a pile of tech news. I also update all of you on some thoughts I have about CES 2019 and the plan for the coverage of the event.

Uber’s Annoying Expansion #1308



Sorry for no show on Thursday last week things went sideways for me making it impossible to do the show. We have added a few insiders to the podcast and I want to thank them for their support in our value for value programming. We want to encourage the audience in becoming insiders this is a great time to support the show and help me grow the content you love and enjoy.

Today I spend some time talking about what I consider to be an annoying expansion of Uber along with some hot topics to include Verizon throttling a California Fore Department as it fought a massive fire.

Netflix Ads Between Episodes #1307



Ok, folks, I am live as it can be from the great state of Texas. Heavily jet lagged and sugar-free Lime Red Bull takes me through the show production. Are you ready for commercials on Netflix? Nope, neither am I but that may be the future of Netflix. Let us hope not as that would seem to go against everything Netflix has going for it.

Losers at MoviePass #1306



In a desperate bid to stay in business MoviePass today dropped the hammer and further limited the viability of the service. It’s if they are asking users to abandon the service. The key for me was I could watch any movie I wanted on the schedule I wanted. Now they are dictating times which is annoying. They are not going to survive this you can only change the business model so many time. Ok, folks, I am on road for the next two weeks which means audio shows only. Off to Texas.

Google Tracks your Location Always #1305



Some very concerning information about Google location tracking has come out by the AP. You need to pay attention to this information if you are concerned about your location privacy. I also provide some links to how you can root out all the information that they have stored on you to get it cleaned up. Yes, they are tracking you with Location data turned off. Also, the GoDaddy Promo Codes are changing on September 1st. So if you want to take advantage of the deal now is the time.
