Best Tech Podcasts This Week – 05/08/23

The Tech Tribune staff has compiled a list of the best new tech podcasts released in the last week (as of the time of writing):

“Plus, Temu and Shein pose big security threats — here’s what to look out for. I talk to a guy that wants to play music in his car through a thumb drive. One state was blocked by world’s largest p*rn site, an ADHD-friendly web browser and how to set a photo timer on your Android or iPhone.”

“It’s getting harder to believe your eyes and ears on the internet. Artificial intelligence tools can generate convincing images, videos and voices. Chatbots can spit out confident misinformation. And Twitter users for $8 a month can basically impersonate anyone they’d like on the site. The specter of an internet full of fakes has a lot of people worried about an epistemic apocalypse: a total breakdown of our ability to perceive truth and reality. It’s something Joshua Habgood-Coote, a research fellow at the School of Philosophy, Religion and History of Science at the University of Leeds in England, has written about. He talked to Marketplace’s Meghan McCarty Carino about it.”

“The video discusses dealing with a team with a “we finish when we finish” mentality and consistently carries over work items from one sprint to the next. Todd and Ryan suggest looking at the aging of work items and discussing this in the daily scrum to help identify if the team is carrying over work that is not being done or if it’s an ongoing problem. They also emphasize the importance of staying professional and respecting stakeholders’ expectations by ensuring that work is completed and ready for release by the end of the sprint.”

“ChatGPT has leaped into the forefront of our lives—everyone from students to multinational organizations are seeing value in adding a chat interface to an LLM. But OpenAI has been concentrating on this for years, steadily developing one of the most viral digital products this century. In this episode of our AI series, we sit down with Logan Kilpatrick. Logan currently leads developer relations at OpenAI, supporting developers building with DALL-E, the OpenAI API, and ChatGPT. Logan takes us through OpenAI’s products, API, and models, and provides insights into the many use cases of ChatGPT.”

“For at least a year, some employees at TikTok were able to access what they described internally as a list of users who watched gay content on the app, according to former employees. TikTok says it’s changed the way it handles this kind of data. But this is an unusual practice among tech companies and it’s adding to questions about the company’s handling of user information. WSJ social media reporter Georgia Wells joins host Zoe Thomas to discuss what happened.”

“That is right! Everyone’s favorite MP3 player is back! This time due to a collaboration with Guardians of the Galaxy, but it doesn’t matter because Hanselman and others have found ways to revive it in 2023. We discuss the Zune software, UI stack, why we loved it, and why it may have been the best XAML to XAML.”

“In this episode we debunk the fearmongering surrounding “juice jacking,” a cyber attack where attackers steal data from devices that are charging via USB ports.

Next, we dive into a case where a photographer tried to get his photos removed from an AI dataset, only to receive an invoice instead of having his photos taken down.

Finally, we examine the security risks of using Google Authenticator’s cloud sync feature for two-factor authentication. We explain why this feature may not provide adequate protection and offer recommendations for more secure alternatives.”

“On this week’s episode of the iMore Show, Karen & Stephen are joined by iMore’s Features Editor Daryl Baxter & How To Editor John-Anthony Disotto to discuss tipping at the Apple store, upgrades and new arrivals on the iPad, widgets returning to the Apple Watch, new games on Apple Arcade, which apps need to come to iPad, and more!”

“In May 2020, the US Department of Justice stumbled upon Russian hackers in its network. But did not realize the significance of what they had found for six months. Read the story here.”

“Lots of people are becoming creators now. In fact, Craig Chavis Jr. describes being a creator as sharing your expertise. But does that make you a business owner? Not so fast! That’s a completely different thing. And in today’s episode, we dig into what those differences are, finding the right message for your business, and how creators can become business owners. In How I Built It PRO, we talk about putting yourself into a corner, and how owning a business is kind of like surfing.”
