App Tracking Traps a Catholic Priest. How It Can Affect You, Too Craig Peterson: I've got two hot topics for you this morning. One about this Catholic priest that ended up resigning and how that happened to tie into this Grindr account. And how it affects you because this type of technology used to convict him in the court of public opinion is something that. It could also easily be used against you. [00:00:25] And, by the way, it probably is. Now the next thing is this chip shortage. I've got a quote here from the Intel CEO. When is the chip shortage going to go away? When can we get...

COVID's Biggest Victim? The Traditional Workplace Craig Peterson: Work from home is a huge deal, especially for a couple of segments of our society. And I want to talk a little bit about that now, as employees are returning to work, should they be returning to the office? There is a great article here this last week in Forbes magazine by Dana Brownley. And it was one of their editors' picks, and Forbes picked it, I think, for excellent reason. And that is so many of us have been working from home. And for many of us, it's been a godsend. I've worked from home now for over 20 years. And for me,...

The FBI Weaponized Google Pixel 4a Phones! If you look into buying a used Google Pixel 2a, I've got some news for you. The FBI has been very busy, and they've conned the con man. I love this story.  The FBI has been trying to track bad guys for a very long time, and there've been several ways they've done it. We know obviously about phone taps. We've seen those before the old days. I don't know if you've ever been to one of the original. Telephone switching stations were all not even original, but the types they had in the late sixties and early seventies. I remember going to see one, and...

How Could Facebook Do a Better Job at Controlling Disinformation? Hello, everybody. Great discussion this morning about Facebook and what is going on with their monitoring and controlling some of the topics. Should they have something in place that really stops false information? How could they do that? And what's their real motivation behind all of this. With Mr. Christopher Ryan, we also got into how the general services administration has completely messed up. Again, it's authorization, this FedRAMP authorization. Why are our federal agencies using some tools like zoom that have been proven...

Amazon Is In For a Rough Ride Did you know that Amazon has a new CEO? I remember back in the nineties; I pledge that I would never use Amazon again because they filed and were awarded a patent on technology everybody was using.  Jeff Bezos is out of a job. [00:00:19] This is a guy that grew a company that all they did initially really was book sales, and they had a warehouse the size of the Amazon, right? Because they wanted to represent everybody. They had every book ever published, and to a large degree. They did. They had a whole lot of bucks, and then I've expanded, of course, beyond...

Predictions About Olympic Cyberattacks We're all excited about the upcoming Olympic games. And so are the hackers. Oh my goodness. I just finished reading a report by the cyber threat Alliance about what they're expecting to happen at these Olympic Games in Tokyo.  The Olympics have always been a huge target when it comes to the bad guys. [00:00:23] You might remember there have been abductions at the Olympics before where some of the Olympic competitors were held at gunpoint. Of course, we're not going to forget that one anytime soon. And looking back through the last few Olympics, there...

[00:03:17] Jim Polito.

[00:03:18]Jim Polito: [00:03:18] It appears that there's a company who can they can track where your car is. And they want to sell this data to the government. What. This, by the way this news comes as we hear that the Chinese don't want Tesla in China anymore, because they think that Tesla is basically a CIA backed company.

[00:03:46] That's spying on the Chinese. All right. Let's sort all this out. And just bring in the voice of reason and the voice of real intellect. I'm talking about our tech talker ruin good friend, Craig Peter song. Good morning, sir.

[00:04:01] Craig Peterson: [00:04:01] Hey, good morning. How you doing

[00:04:03] Jim Polito: [00:04:03] Mr. Jim? I'm very good Craig. We can get into the Tesla thing and the Chinese saying you're spying on us and kicking them out.

[00:04:10] And meanwhile, they're trying to they're building components for R F 16 fighter jet, but that's all right. Let's get to this company. You sent me this as a company. Who collects this data tracking cars. First of all, I didn't know my car could be tracked, but, anyway and then they want to sell it.

[00:04:27] They're trying to sell it, bundle it and sell it to the United States government. Yeah,

[00:04:32] Craig Peterson: [00:04:32] they are. Wow. This is pretty concerning here. This is a contractor that has been doing surveillance for a long time for the government. It's told you lyses, which is an interesting main site, but yeah. Wherever we're going to this gym is a whole new direction.

[00:04:50] Pardon the pun with our cars. We now have cars that are moderately smart to mention Tesla, but there are more and more coming online. And the idea is to have a web of. Cars, sensors and cars talking to each other. We already have that basic technology existing in NASCAR and in formula racing where the cars actually talk to each other, they know how far apart they are is, and that's something that's really.

[00:05:26] That's what we're going to need for the cars on the road today. So I was watching this British show where they're racing around the world. It's like the amazing race, but they mispronounce words.

[00:05:43] They were in China and and they were just as shocking to me to see some of these things. I don't know if you've seen the pictures, but there's this one road it's 20 lanes in each direction, coming up to a toll booth. Backed up for miles. The traffic there is crazy. And I lived in Los Angeles for about eight years.

[00:06:03] I had a client that I used to go to the largest savings and loan company in the country and their headquarters were, Oh, not even 40 miles from where I lived. Public goes to the 30 miles from where I lived out there in LA. I was actually just over the line in Ventura County for those that know that area out there.

[00:06:24] But the problem that I faced was to go that 30 to 40 miles, Jim would take me more than three hours. So I was on the road. For six hours a day. And most of the congestion that we see on the road is caused by people, the sole person in the fast lane and people weaving in and out of traffic. All of the things you've heard over the years.

[00:06:52] So what we've been doing is putting sensors in the roadways. You see them a lot. West and they have, if you go on and on ramp, there is a stop light, right before you merge. Have you seen those before? Yes. Yes. So you have to come to a full, to come to a full stop. Yeah, it's crazy. What they're trying to do is when the light goes green, only one car can go through.

[00:07:15] These sensors are detecting where the cars are, how fast they're going. So where we're going to is embedded sensors, everywhere communication, sensors on all of our cars, just like they are at the races so that we can now have two to three times more vehicles on the road safely. And at the same time in decrease the amount of time it takes.

[00:07:40]

[00:07:40]Jim Polito: [00:07:40] No, go ahead, Craig, finish your thought.

[00:07:43] Craig Peterson: [00:07:43] I'm looking forward to that sort of a thing, because it's going to be huge, but it brings up the point that you just brought up. Yeah.

[00:07:51] Jim Polito: [00:07:51] You weren't talking with Craig Peterson, our tech talk guru. And so Craig. Yeah. I go for all of that. Anything that can make a safer Noah, hold on a second.

[00:08:00] I don't want to give up privacy for these things, moving cars along on the highway. Better Mo you know, making traffic flow better. We learn every year, these things, but you're right. It reminds me of the movie demolition man, which is, supposed to be in the future. And they say, okay Where is he?

[00:08:19]No, we'll just go two, two, two, two, two. And everybody's chipped, but also every vehicle is chipped and everything else you can find and cameras are all over the city. So you can find anybody just by the press of a button and yeah. I that part, I don't like I don't want I fat because I just think that it's inappropriate for the government to be able to do that.

[00:08:42]I don't trust it being in the hands of people, especially after what happened with the old P dossier, the thing that they, the Russian collusion thing, they brought up against Trump, which turned out to be. Absolutely false. You're going to hate anything you want about Trump, but that thing was false.

[00:09:00] And yet the FBI ran with it. And when the, when I find out that the FBI, the leadership of the FBI will run with something like that, I don't trust them with the other stuff.

[00:09:12] Craig Peterson: [00:09:12] Yeah let's have that issue. So here's what we're looking at right now. You've got this OBD port in your car, every car mandated by Congress.

[00:09:22] It's in there now. It's been in there for decades now. And when you go to the car repairs shop, they plug it in and the car said, tells them the technician. Why that check engine light came on. And they are now taking that to the next step, which is they are transmitting it, transmitted that information, that OBD port, that onboard computer knows everything about your car.

[00:09:49] It knows if your seatbelts are fashion, but are fastened. It knows. You're the engine. What's the temperature? What are your emissions? How hard are you accelerating? And so let's put all of this in a pot and stirred up a little bit. They are obtaining already this company called Ulysses what's called telematics data.

[00:10:10] It's all of this data about the cars already from embedded sensors, from communication sensors that are embedded in the roads. That are reading our license plates as we drive under bridges or pass these little cameras and pull yeah. Pulling it all together. So these cars, a hundred million new cars manufactured worldwide every year are increasingly conscious to the manufacturer and match part of the problem China has with Tesla.

[00:10:41] Jim Polito: [00:10:41] Wow. Craig. Here's the thing. There's not going to be any way for you to block this. If you worry about on your. Desktop computer or your laptop computer. If you worry about the camera being on like the cameras they sell now, even have that little thing, you slide over covers up the lens.

[00:10:59]You can unplug the microphone. You got, you knew all those things so that you can't be monitored. But you can't do anything with this stuff. If they put it out.

[00:11:08]Craig Peterson: [00:11:08] Your Tesla and part of what China is complaining about is you hear you're driving a car around with what is it? Seven cameras on it, including a camera aimed at the driver, and then Tesla calls home every night on why fi.

[00:11:22] What state is it transmitting? What does it know? What pictures has it taken, talking about a hat target don't China's concerned. Hey the CIA NSA, FBI, who knows what TLA three letter agency might be tracking this stuff and you know what. They're not

[00:11:40] Jim Polito: [00:11:40] wrong. Yeah. I hate I hate to agree with the but the Chinese communists on something like this, but they they are, right there.

[00:11:49] They don't want it. They don't want anyone. Taking pictures of things that went well, that basically that's what you have in a totalitarian state.

[00:11:58] Craig Peterson: [00:11:58] And I want to twist this to okay. And that is Jim. Okay. Have you noticed that I noticed this when I was young, my parents blamed me in doing things I never did.

[00:12:11] What did they did? And the Democrat blame Republicans for things Republicans never did, but they did hence the Russian hoax against president Trump, where they were saying president Trump, collusion, Russians collusion, Russians. What we're looking at now is the Chinese saying we don't want your technology because it's spying on us because that's how you something.

[00:12:34] Jim Polito: [00:12:34] Yeah. It really does. I do know that they don't want people freely taking video of anything in their country because they want to control any information about their country. That leaves, God forbid somebody in a Tesla drive by one of the Weger concentration camps where they're committing genocide against that.

[00:12:55] Muslim minority. Somebody might pick it up on a Tesla camera and it might end up in the hands of the the public. But you're right. Craig, this was a fascinating segment is usual how to folks get more information from Craig Peterson.

[00:13:12]Craig Peterson: [00:13:12] I got to let everybody know next week. I am starting that improving windows security course.

[00:13:18] I've been promising for three, four months. It starts on Monday. You'll find out more, but you only find out if you are on my newsletter list. You can get all of the details, but you've got to go to Brent peterson.com. Make sure you sign up to the newsletter letter. You'll get the show notes, including stuff that I send to Jim.

[00:13:38] You'll get that every week. You'll find out about the free trainings, about the courses, about everything that I'm doing to try and help people understand where we're at and where we're going.

[00:13:52] Jim Polito: [00:13:52] Craig, thank you so much. Always a pleasure. And we'll catch up with you next week or. There's a big tech story maybe before.

[00:14:01] Craig Peterson: [00:14:01] Indeed. Thank you, Craig.
