Food Fraud // Toxic Treats // Gutter Oil // Swindling //

It is epidemic and is also killing our 4 footed family members.  Pet treats from China has been implicated in the deaths of hundreds if not thousands of our furry friends.  Unfortunately that is only the tip of the iceberg.  It is a practice to 'hoover' grease from the gutters and sewer systems and use it to make food.  Yuck!  Is it due to a culture of swindling?

Paul and Katherine discuss safer and more secure operating system alternatives to Microsoft.  A wealth of information here.  For those starting out for the first time try Unbuntu.  When you are experienced experiment with other 'flavors' of Linux such as Linux Mint.

Kill Switch // Fitness Tracking //

A kill switch is not a good idea for us.  The only ones pushing this is the government.  Katherine discusses other implications of a kill switch.  Another trend fraught with privacy invasion implications are the new fitness tracking apps.  Get a load of the new privacy policy for moves-app after it was acquired.

Benjamin Mako Hill // Privacy // Google // Gmail // Linux // Ubuntu // GPS //

What an amazing hour.  Mako and Katherine talk all things electronic and privacy.  Nothing is private with Google or Gmail.  Linux and Ubuntu are much better than windows.  GPS can have some very interesting errors - such as sending people to Lourde unstead of Lourdes.
