Transatlantic Cable podcast, episode 217

This week on the Kaspersky podcast, Ahmed, Dave, and Jeff discuss the UK moving away from the GDPR, TikTokers doing good, changes coming to Apple and Google in-app purchases, and more.

This week on the Kaspersky Transatlantic Cable podcast, Ahmed, Dave, and I start out in the Far East with a look at South Korea’s investigation of the fees Google and Apple charge vendors for in-app purchases.

The article spurs some debate; we three have pretty distinct opinions about the platform-versus-developer situation.

From there, we head to California, where a man has been arrested for hacking into iCloud accounts for profit.

Our third story takes us to the United Kingdom, where David’s people are looking to remove themselves from the GDPR. Is that a good thing?

A pair of stories with a similar theme — adult entertainment — closes out the podcast. The first story examines TikTok users battling a Texas “whistleblowing” website where people can anonymously report abortion patients and anyone who helps them. Users who object to the site have been flooding the submission system with videos, including some, ahem, questionable Shrek content. The second considers OnlyFans’ course corrections on allowable content.
