Matt Klinman on Techtonic - Feb 19, 2018 on "how Facebook is killing comedy"

In tech news:

Ring says it will introduce new security features after hackers broke into a camera in an 8-year-old's bedroom, where they could watch and talk to the child (Business Insider, Dec 13)

Somebody’s Watching: Hackers Breach Ring Home Security Cameras (New York Times, Dec 15): "Unnerved owners of the devices reported recent hacks in four states. [Amazon] reminded customers not to recycle passwords and user names. ... In Waterbury, Conn., Ed Slaughter told NBC Connecticut last week that he felt “violated” after a hacker started yelling obscenities and woke up his mother-in-law, who had been sleeping in the basement where he had installed a Ring camera."

To review...

1. Parents put Amazon Ring surveillance camera in child's bedroom

2. Ring device is hacked, child terrorized in her bedroom

3. Amazon reassures parents: don't worry, just choose a better password next time

Better solution: DON'T BUY AMAZON RING.

How do local Md. governments spend money from speed cameras? Here’s what AAA found out. (Washington Post, Dec 12): Fines from surveillance speed cameras "helps to pay for fingerprint scanners, law enforcement dogs, fees for data storage of body-worn camera video, and license plate reader equipment." Surveillance funds more surveillance.

The model is flawed, I believe. Toys R Us needs to also capture audio so they know why the parent drags the screaming kid away from the shelf. "Come on, honey, that costs too much" "You're not old enough for that" "Santa will bring it to you" "DON'T YOU TALK BACK TO ME!!! WE'RE LEAVING!!"

OK, Swimply stole my pool idea. Don't tell me someone's already thought up a way for people to share their electric car-charging hardware in their garages.

The Ring story makes me think there's a need to update The Ring horror movie. Samara doesn't crawl out of the tv, it crawls out of the Ring camera. Product placement directly in the movie title.
