Apple reported fourth quarter earnings today; Their stock is down for the year. And for the third quarter in a row, iPhone sales were down from this time last year.

Triangulation 270: Jerry Kaplan  

Jerry Kaplan has been working on artificial intelligence since the 1950s. He explains to Leo the difference between general artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automation. He also explains why he thinks the idea of the Singularity is nonsense, that the real thing the Turing Test describes is trickery rather than intelligence, and that much of the current hype over the development of AI is just that: hype. He does think that the current growth of machine learning can and will transform the economy - many jobs will be replaced through automation, but many other opportunities will be created.

This Week in Tech 585: I Can't Wait Till 2021  

A massive botnet of IoT devices took down Dyne DNS, knocking several major US websites off line in a DDOS attack Friday. Hackers were able to break into John Podesta and Colin Powell's Gmail accounts via a simple phishing scheme. Both Microsoft and Apple will hold events next week announcing new hardware - rumors predict an all-in-one Surface PC and new MacBook Pro laptops, respectively. Google's Pixel phones are out, and with Samsung damaged by Note 7 explosions, their timing couldn't be better. AT&T acquires Time-Warner. And Tesla announces full self-driving hardware will be in all new Tesla cars.

• David Pogue says that Friday's DDOS attack is just the beginning, and we have almost no ability to protect against the next attack.

• Steve Kovach lost sleep over the AT&T - Time-Warner merger - he says the deal was rushed to stay ahead of rumor.

• Leo says there are only two flagship phones anyone should buy now - the iPhone 7 and the Google Pixel.

It's time to patch your Linux box, and if you have any Linux lovers in your life, it is time to tell them to do the same.

Today, the American Academy of Pediatrics lifted the recommended ban on screens for children under two years old. Facebook says it plans to work with partners and community to overhaul community standards and include posts that contain nudity, yet are newsworthy. And the website UniqueFind has a Halloween costume not for you, but for your iPhone.

Nicole Lee from Engadget discusses the DDoS attack on Dyn.Bryan Clark from The Next Web talks about a new study that says millennials fall for more scams than seniors. Also, Samsung is trying to use DMCA takedowns to remove videos that include GTA mods of people using the Galaxy Note 7 as a bomb. And finally, do you have a good iPhone 7, or one that sucks?
