Lasers Hack Smart Speakers. Getting Hosed on Cryptocurrency.

GetConnected Video Podcast - Nov 9

This week’s GetConnected Video Podcast is powered by lasers and cryptocurrency. Recently, researchers discovered that smart speakers, like Amazon Echo and Google Assistant, could be compromised with lasers. Another cryptocurrency exchange has shuttered in BC. We explore the impact and what you can do to prevent being ensnared in these types of schemes. And did you know that apps on Apple devices still know where you’ve been, even if you’ve told them not to track you? This and more on the November 9, 2019 edition of the GetConnected Video Podcast.

This week’s hosts are Mike Agerbo, John Biehler and AJ Vickery. Graham Williams steps in as our resident cryptocurrency expert. Thank you for supporting the GetConnected Video Podcast!
