In this week's episode we'll tell you about two Canadian schools trying to deal with phones in the classroom, a proposal to put control of nukes with AI systems, a fine Transport Canada handed out to a rogue drone operator, a fine Google got for ads on YouTube Kids, the promise and heartbreak of RCS, how French police hijacked a botnet to kill a virus, and more.
Also touched on: Jack Dorsey's Twitter hack, USB4 (and how confusing that is), a designer backpack with touch controls, and a new Facebook data leak (yay).
