Facebook wants to spy on people through their smartphone camera and analyse the emotions on their face
CBI Insights found a patent granted in May which lets Facebook determine your emotion using pictures through your smartphone camera. The system could pick up data from the keyboard, mouse, touch pad, touch screen, or other input devices, and the patent mentions predicting emotion based on relative typing speed, how hard the keys are pressed, movement (using the phone’s accelerometer), location, and other factors.

Microsoft is Shutting Down Docs.com
Microsoft announced today that their Docs.com service will shut down on 15 December 2017. I didn't even realize it started as a partnership with Facebook back in 2010. It was after the redesigning in 2015 that I became aware of it. It feels like a short lifespan... even if I never used it.

According to the support document that was released today about the retirement of the service the features in Docs.com will be replaced by other services from the Redmond company:

"Following Microsoft’s acquisition of LinkedIn, SlideShare has joined the Microsoft family, and represents the ideal platform for publishing your Word, PowerPoint, and PDF content with its audience of 70 million professionals, and vast content library.

Neha N
Time frame depends on complexity and nature of the issue. We cannot provide or commit to an ETA unless we actually know values of all variables involved in this. However , since our senior admins are already aware of the issue and are working on it, it should be resolved at the earliest possible.
8:44:42 PM
Paul Spoerry
It's been three months. I'm asking for a an expected timeframe. Three more months or three days?
8:46:32 PM
Neha N

Unfortunately, he is not available at this moment and I will not be able to provide the details at what time he will arrive.
9:42:21 PM
Paul Spoerry
So the legal position of ASO is that you cannot provide the LEGAL business name, address, and contact phone number, nor can you tell me when (this year) I can no longer talk to a supervisor, nor can you tell me when that was legally changed so that I can no longer talk to a supervisor, nor can you explain a 3 month old, unanswered support ticket, nor will you put me in touch with anyone who an answer the above?
9:43:45 PM
Paul Spoerry
I'm asking for clarification so that when I submit the above to the US Better Business Bureau (or the 3+ million people in my G+ groups) I know what ASO's official position is on this topic.
9:45:22 PM
Neha N
I have not mentioned that, I cannot provide the legal details. I have updated the ticket to provide those details.
9:46:31 PM
Neha N
You have to wait for the response from our ticket admins and you can reply to the ticket for any details.
9:46:40 PM
Paul Spoerry
Not mentioned what specifically?
9:48:00 PM
Neha N
I have not mentioned that we do not provide LEGAL business name and address. I have mentioned that, I do not have the info right now and I will update the ticket to get that details.
9:48:32 PM
Paul Spoerry
How can you NOT know the legal entity for which you work?
9:49:04 PM
Paul Spoerry
I've waited for 3 month on my oldest ticket? Is this the position of ASO support for this support chat and the 3 month old ticket?
9:49:36 PM
Paul Spoerry
Please provide the LEGAL business name, address, and contact phone number.
9:51:55 PM
Neha N
Those information will be with the legal team and I was not able to contact them at this moment.
9:52:12 PM
Neha N
There is nothing I can do much at this moment. You have to wait for their response.
9:52:33 PM
Paul Spoerry
I'd like to be contacted via phone then.
9:53:51 PM
Neha N
We have discontinued the phone support.
9:57:08 PM
Paul Spoerry
I was never notified. WHEN was that discontinued... please provide the timestamp so I can submit to the US Better Business Bureau as well as request a refund from that time. Again, I'd prefer to speak with a US supervisor at this time.
10:01:16 PM
Neha N

10:06:48 PM
Neha N
If I have that information handy, I would have provided. I was not able to contact anyone at this moment to get that info. I have updated the ticket DOL-465-58074 to get those details and I will pass the ticket to someone when they are available.
10:08:02 PM
Paul Spoerry
If you cannot provide the LEGAL business name, address, and contact phone number then I require the ability to speak with a supervisor.
10:09:30 PM
Neha N
At this moment both are not possible.
10:09:49 PM
Neha N
You can contact us on week days, so that we may help you with that.
10:12:06 PM
Paul Spoerry
So you're saying nobody will help me now, or call me, but that I have to do work to contact support? That's fine IF you provide me a contact phone number.
10:13:38 PM
Neha N
Unfortunately, at this moment, I will not be able to help you or not able to provide any information.
10:13:47 PM
Neha N
You can always contact us on week days.

Alexa is getting updated to have more useful reminders
Now... they just need to free those reminders from their abysmal mobile app. Don't get me wrong... I have three Echo's and love being able to walk into my bedroom and say, "Alexa, bedroom lights on." and watch the lights enable. But for reminders... it needs better integration with my default calendar (Google), or my default task app (Wunderlist), etc. Amazon has built a really great home unit but their mobile app stinks. And yes... I realize they want to lock you into their app but if they're going to do that then they need to make the app a pleasure to use.

The head of Goldman Sachs joined Twitter in 2011...his first and only tweet was to criticize President Donald Trump's decision to abandon the Paris Climate Agreement. The climate agreement bound every country on the planet, besides Syria, Nicaragua, and now the United States, to work to fight climate change.

Keybase update - Send secure messages using just a social media profile
Keybase is hellbent on bringing encryption to the masses. And not just chat, or file, but errythang. I've been using it for a while and it's pretty sweet.

After launching frictionless encrypted file sharing last year, the open-source security company rolled out Keybase Chat, a desktop and mobile chat app that allows users to send encrypted messages to anyone on the internet using just their Twitter, Facebook or Reddit username. Today, Keybase announced a few new launches that will make it even easier to send encrypted messages to anyone -- even if your recipient isn't set up to receive them yet.

On top of their already awesome encrypted file sharing you now have cross platform end-to-end encrypted chat. Available on Windows, Android, iOS, macOS, and Linux.

They even have a browser coming and examples so you can get up and running locally. Will it take off or fissile like that latest Pied Piper venture... will it rock because of 'middle out' (hehehe) who knows. But the idea is pretty cool. ___

He takes a nearly two minutes to respond. It's not that his response is a bad one. I’m torn between being infuriated that he won’t just be honest and understanding that he has a strategic reason for it. As usual, he goes out of his way to avoid saying “No.”

Ajit Pai accidentally supports the net neutrality he wants to destroy
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai is a big fan of former President Bill Clinton's approach to regulating Internet service. Pai has repeatedly said that the FCC should return to Clinton-era regulatory policy.

But returning to 1990s-era Internet regulation would require more of the Title II utility-style regulation that Pai abhors, not less. If we had 1990s and early 2000s regulatory policy, Internet providers would be forced to open their networks to companies that want to resell Internet access, potentially unleashing a wave of competition in a market where today's consumers often have no choice of high-speed broadband providers.

Gallup: Fewer people than ever before believe the Bible is literally true
"Fewer than one in four Americans (24%) now believe the Bible is "the actual word of God, and is to be taken literally, word for word," similar to the 26% who view it as "a book of fables, legends, history and moral precepts recorded by man." This is the first time in Gallup's four-decade trend that biblical literalism has not surpassed biblical skepticism. Meanwhile, about half of Americans -- a proportion largely unchanged over the years -- fall in the middle, saying the Bible is the inspired word of God but that not all of it should be taken literally."

I get the first two... the third group always perplexes me a bit. If it's so inspired how come it's not crystal clear which portions are literal and which portions are not?

It’s also good to see that only 12% of people under the age of 30 say the Bible is literally God’s Word. Of course this all has to be taken with a grain of salt The same survey found that 7% of people with “No religion” said the Bible should be taken literally.

GOP FCC chairman who voted to sell your browsing history won’t release his
Republican FCC Chairman Ajit Pai — a former Verizon lawyer — was a major force in the decision to stop rules protecting the privacy of Americans’ information online from going into effect, saying, “The more heavily you regulate something, the less of it you’re likely to get.”

So ZDNet filed a Freedom of Information request for Pai's history. The response was, of course, "no." Maybe they should have asked his ISP instead?

NSA-derived ransomware worm shutting down computers worldwide

Regular users as well as banks, hospitals, telecommunications services, and other mission-critical organizations in multiple countries have been hit.

People who have yet to install the Microsoft fix — MS17-010 (link below) — should do so right away. People should also be extremely suspicious of all e-mails they receive, particularly those that ask the recipient to open attached documents or click on Web links.

White House refuses to deny Trump has recording devices
See... all you people making Nixon comparisons are... oh wait. uh...

Reuters White House correspondent Jeff Mason asked first about the president recording the Comey conversation, but followed up with the logical query, "Are there recording devices in the Oval Office or in the residence?"

Spicer responded: "The president has nothing further to add on that."

Jimmy Kimmel Apologizes For Saying All Kids Should Have Health Care
“I would like to apologize for saying that children in America should have health care. It was insensitive, it was offensive, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me." - and no... he wasn't serious.

Kimmel had US Senator Bill Cassidy from Louisiana on his show as well last night to discuss the future of health care in America. Cassidy had said that any health care reforms that are put forward now have to pass the “Jimmy Kimmel Test.”

“Since I am Jimmy Kimmel, I’d like to make a suggestion as to what the Jimmy Kimmel test should be. I’ll keep it simple,” Kimmel told Cassidy. “The Jimmy Kimmel test I think should be, no family should be denied medical care, emergency or otherwise, because they can’t afford it.”

“Hey man, you’re on the right track. But we’ve gotta be able to pay for it,” Cassidy said.

Kimmel suggested that one way to pay for it was to first not give tax cuts to millionaires, and “leave it how it is.” This, of course, isn’t a real solution, but it shows you just how backwards everything is right now.

John Oliver tackles net neutrality again, crashes FCC comments site—again
The FCC is taking public comments once again... although this time they've made HOW to comment needlessly (/intentionally) complex. John Oliver announced a new URL, gofccyourself.com, that redirects to the FCC proposal to eliminate net neutrality rules. (Clicking "Express" is the easiest way to submit a comment.) The comments website promptly crashed, making it difficult or impossible to file comments last night and this morning. The comments site has started working, but only intermittently.

There are now almost 80,000 comments on the proposal, more than double the amount reported on Friday. The previous net neutrality debate drew 4 million comments, but there's still plenty of time to break that record.

Oliver urged viewers to contact the FCC and tell the commission to preserve net neutrality rules and the Title II authority used to enforce them. He also urged viewers to contact their representatives and senators.

"Every Internet group needs to come together like you successfully did three years ago," Oliver said. "Every subculture must join as one. Gamers, YouTube celebrities, Instagram models, Tom from MySpace if you're still alive. We need all of you, even, and I cannot believe I'm saying this, Donald Trump's Internet fans on sites like 4chan and Reddit, the most powerful online trolls of all. This subject is one of the few things that we actually agree on."

Trump’s totally bizarre claim about avoiding the Civil War
What's most weird about is that he's acting like he'd be anti-war, that people should just work it out... but he's also beating the drum of war right now.

"Here's the exchange:

TRUMP: [Jackson] was a swashbuckler. But when his wife died, did you know he visited her grave everyday? I visited her grave actually because I was in Tennessee.

ZITO: That's right. You were in Tennessee.

TRUMP: And it was amazing. The people of Tennessee are amazing people. They love Andrew Jackson. They love Andrew Jackson in Tennessee.

ZITO: He's fascinating.

He was really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War. He said, “There's no reason for this.” People don't realize, you know, the Civil War — if you think about it, why? People don't ask that question, but why was there a Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out?"

Government requests for Facebook user account data up 9% in second half of 2016
Facebook released its Global Government Requests Report, which shows the number of request officials have made to Facebook for user data. The report also includes the number of items restricted or removed for violating local laws. It reads very similarly to Twitter’s transparency report released earlier this year.

In total, Facebook received 64,279 requests for data, a nine-percent increase from the first half of 2016. 26,104 of those requests come from the US, and Facebook complied about 83-percent of the time.

New, deadlier trend in the raging opioid epidemic: Elephant tranquilizer
The drug is 10,000 times stronger than morphine and 100 times stronger than fentanyl, just two milligrams of which is lethal—that’s about one toss of a salt shaker. Carfentanil can be absorbed through the skin, and just a puff from re-sealing a plastic bag can be lethal, raising risks for first-responders. Just a whiff can kill a drug-sniffing dog.

So... basically everything you've ever thought about Fox News based on their "reporting/news" is showing itself to be true.

"Nearly a dozen current and former employees at the channel filed a class-action lawsuit against Fox on Tuesday. The lawsuit alleges “abhorrent, intolerable, unlawful and hostile racial discrimination," and singles out former comptroller Judith Slater as a specific instigator of racially discriminatory behavior.

Since she had to wear Wonder Woman’s armor for the reshoots, the solution was this: they cut out the stomach of the armor, and put green fabric over Gadot’s stomach so that her baby bump could be edited out in post.

So let's recap... Gal Gadot fought as Wonder Woman while pregnant and Serena Williams won the Grand Slam also while pregnant. Women.Are.Awesome.
