During Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast this week, Dave and I focus on two main topics: Facebook vs. Australia (and the EU) and Clubhouse.
We kick things off in the spot the cool kids are raving about on the Internets: Clubhouse. The invitation-only, audio-focused iOS app has taken Silicon Valley and the social network conversation by storm, and not for all the right reasons. In these two stories, we look at a developer who created an Android app for Clubhouse and also a short-lived site that scraped and published site content for anyone to see. So, privacy is a wee bit of a concern.
From there, we jump over to a recent announcement from Nvidia about altering some graphics cards to discourage cryptomining.
To close out the podcast, we take a look at the current showdown between Australia and Facebook. We discuss the current situation, its history, and how this situation could affect other countries or unions (e.g., Europe). My take may not be hugely popular, but maybe some of you will agree with it.
