This Week in Google 445: The Mortician's WifeThis Week in Google 445: The Mortician's Wife

Conspiracy theories arise online and off about the Florida school shooting. A Twitter bot purge significantly reduces the follower counts of conservative users, but Twitter claims it's not political. Google removes the 'view image' button from search results to appease photographers, and a federal judge says that embedding a tweet can be a copyright infringement. Has Google become too big? Plenty of examples featured in a New York Times article suggest that Google has been trying to suppress competition, prompting some critics to say the government should step in. Edible Arrangements also goes after Google because its competitors show up in search results. Google AI can now predict heart attacks through an eye scan.

This week we examine and discuss the appearance of new forms of Meltdown and Spectre attacks, the legal response against Intel, the adoption of new cybersecurity responsibility in New York, some more on Salon and authorized crypto mining, more on software cheating auto emissions, a newly revealed instance of highly profitable mal-mining, checking in on Lets Encrypts steady growth, the first crack of Windows uncrackable UWP system, Apple' whacky Telugu Unicode attacks, a frightening "EternalBlue" experiment, another aspect of crypto mining annoyance, a note now that Chrome's new advertising controls are in place, a bit of closing the loop with our listeners. And then we conclude with a look at the technology that was revealed in last week's indictment of election meddling Russians... and from a practical technology standpoint, the feasibility of anything changing.

We invite you to read our show notes.
