NASA to Study UFO’s! #1604

I honestly don’t believe that they will. They say they do not believe UFOs are extraterrestrial but whatever they are, are a national security threat. We will see what the release as I doubt we will ever know the truth.</p> <p>It’s time to consider becoming a <a href="https://geeknewscentral.com/insider/">GNC Podcast Insider</a>.

Russia is getting Cyber Attacked #1599

May 03, 2022

<p><a href="https://geeknewscentral.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/36-150.jpg"><img src="https://geeknewscentral.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/36-150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" class="alignleft size-full wp-image-99060" /></a>Finally, the table turns and Russia is on the defense as hackers go after targets in Russia. They seem to have great success. Considering hackers largely left Russia alone before they are now actively going after some pretty big targets.

4.1 Billion per SLS Launch #1592

Space Force to Patrol Space out to the Moon? #1590

March 04, 2022

I guess they will be looking for objects that should not be out there.

SpaceX to do Spacewalk by end of 2022? #1586

February 15, 2022

<p><a href="https://geeknewscentral.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/24-150.jpg"><img src="https://geeknewscentral.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/24-150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" class="alignleft size-full wp-image-98533" /></a>SpaceX wants to be able to do a Space Walk by sometime near the end of 2022 to coincide with the first manned starship mission. This to me seems very energetic being that SpaceX does not even have a qualified spacewalking spacesuit ready yet. Time will tell but it will be very exciting to watch.

Apple wants to make Airtags easier to find #1585

February 11, 2022

While they are incredibly useful in keeping track of gear some folks want to keep track of people with them. While most of the time illegal to do so and each airtag is able to be tracked back to the owner sometimes finding the airtag has been difficult. Apple wants to fix that and will be releasing software to make them easier to find.</p> <p>Subscribe to the <a href="https://geeknewscentral.com/newsletter/">Newsletter</a>.<br /><a href="https://geeknews.chat">Join the Chat @ GeekNews.Chat</a><br /><a href="mailto:geeknews@gmail.com">Email Todd</a> or follow him on <a href="https://www.facebook.com/cochrane">Facebook.</a><br /><a href="https://www.facebook.com/geeknews/">Like and Follow Geek News Central Facebook Page</a>.<br /><a href="https://discord.gg/znXCXaE">New Geek Central Discord Channel</a><br /> Download the <a href="https://media.blubrry.com/geeknewscentral/mc.blubrry.com/geeknewscentral/GNC-2022-02-10.mp3?client=aw_0_1st.ri=blubrry" class="broken_link">Audio Show File</a></p> <i>Support my Show Sponsor: <a href="https://geeknewscentral.com/godaddy-promo-codes/"><i>5 Best Godaddy Promo Codes</i></a><br /> 30% Off on GoDaddy Products &amp; Services <a href="http://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-3590583-12200159-1454459286000">cjcgeek30</a><br /> $4.99 GoDaddy coupon for a New or Transferred .com domain <a href="http://www.jdoqocy.com/click-3590583-12200160-1430254390000">cjcgeek99</a><br /> $1.99 a month Economy Hosting with a <b>free</b> domain name.

WYZE Camera V1 at EOL #1582

Well if you do it may be time to replace it due to some unspecified security concerns. Wyze is canceling the camera on February 1st. I have two of the older models that I will replace. Better to be on the safe side and use them where I have no concerns about hacks. Also you can now donate to the show using crypto via Podcast 2.0 apps.

FCC to Block ISP Exclusive Deals #1581

I applaud them for making this move.
