We start off this week with a fabulous picture of the week and for the first time in this podcast's 12-year history, our first quote of the week. Then we'll be discussing the chilling effects of arresting ethical hackers, the upcoming neutrality debate congressional hearing, something troubling encountered at McAfee.com, an entirely new IoT nightmare you couldn't have seen coming and just won't believe, the long-awaited Adobe Flash end-of-life schedule, welcome performance news for Firefox users, the FCC allocates new sensor spectrum for self driving cars, three bits of follow-up errata, a bit of miscellany, and then: "Crypto Tension" -- a careful look at the presently ongoing controversy surrounding the deliberate provisioning of passive eavesdropping decryption being seriously considered for inclusion in the forthcoming TLS v1.3 standard.
