20 – YouTube HQ Shooting Coverage, iOS 11.3 announced

We are breaking the normal schedule today as there is some breaking news I feel that I have to thedohertyfiles.com report on. Full stories at but are quoted in this episodes show notes below.

YouTube HQ Shooting

A suspected female shooter was found dead Tuesday inside YouTube’s San Bruno, California, headquarters after an emergency erupted in the Silicon Valley town.

YouTube employees began posting to Twitter about a shooting around 1 p.m. PT and described a chaotic scene where a shooter was actively conducting violence

As of now, The San Bruno Police Department identified Nasim Najafi Aghdam as the shooter, who eventually turned the gun on herself. Three others who were wounded, each 32, 26, and 27 were transported to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital with gunshot wounds.

This definitely was a surprise attack. Personally, I think Ian Sheer of CNET said it best: “The event rattled the tech industry, which has so far lived in relative comfort along the quiet peninsula that’s home to some of the world’s largest companies, including Apple, Facebook, Hewlett-Packard and YouTube’s parent company, Google (and its own parent company, Alphabet).”

He has a great point; a point that is not frequently pointed out in the tech industry, and something that not many people would expect.

YouTube itself is the internet’s biggest video site, a fact that drew more attention to the shooting and even considered/praised as the #2 search engine in the world with over 300 hours of content every single minute.

President Donald Trump did respond to the shooting praising law enforcement officers saying “Was just briefed on the shooting at YouTube’s HQ in San Bruno, California. Our thoughts and prayers are with everybody involved. Thank you to our phenomenal Law Enforcement Officers and First Responders that are currently on the scene.”




Some questions I wanted to answer.

Who was the shooter?

Police said that the shooter was Nasim Aghdam, a 39-year-old woman from San Diego.

The San Bruno Police Department is investigating the motive for the shootings. “At this time, there is no evidence that the shooter knew the victims of this shooting or that individuals were specifically targeted.” That statement was read yesterday, on Tuesday

What was the motive?

Well, there are still many questions being asked, and as I said above, it was clear she wasn’t targeting a certain individual but, according to CBS LA, “Aghdam’s father was too emotional to go on camera, but told CBS2 News’ reporter Tina Patel that his daughter had gone missing for a few days. He said he had called law enforcement in the San Diego area because he was concerned about her recent ire towards YouTube.”

iOS 11.3 is out!

Apple’s iOS 11.3 is finally out and I’ve compiled all of the stuff released by Apple. Take a look below, most of this is coming directly from Apple (anything in quotes) with my own personal analyzation down at the bottom.

Augmented Reality

“The introduction of ARKit with iOS 11 put augmented reality into the hands of hundreds of millions of iPhone and iPad users, making iOS the world’s biggest AR platform. With iOS 11.3, apps can now deliver AR experiences that use vertical surfaces like walls and doors, in addition to horizontal surfaces like tables and chairs, and more accurately map to irregularly shaped surfaces like circular tables.”
Also, I found it interesting that Apple is using advanced computer vision techniques to find and recognize the position of 2D images such as signs, posters and artwork. And, as newly released by Apple in iOS 11.3 “ARKit can integrate these real world images into AR experiences such as filling a museum with interactive exhibits or bringing a movie poster to life. The view of the real world through the camera now has 50 percent greater resolution and supports auto-focus for an even sharper perspective.”

(New) Animoji5a6898d800d0efc8168b4e16

There are now fourall-new Animoji bring iPhone X users’ expressions to life as a lion, bear, dragon or skull. “Using the A11 Bionic chip and TrueDepth camera give users the ability to record and send Animoji messages (and even create Animoji karaoke videos) using their voice and more than 50 different facial muscle movements.” Take a look here. 

Updated Data and Privacy Policies

“iOS 11.3 and macOS 10.13.4 introduce updated data and privacy information that makes it easier than ever for users to understand how their personal data may be used. A new privacy icon and detailed privacy information will appear whenever Apple asks for access to personal information to enable features, secure Apple services or personalize an iOS experience.”

Updated Battery Life Practices

Amid the recent allegations of slowing down old batteries to urge current customers to purchase new computers, Apple updated some battery life usage practices saying in a press statement “iOS 11.3 adds new features to show battery health of an iPhone and recommend if a battery needs to be serviced. These can be found in Settings -> Battery and are available for iPhone 6 and later.” This was heavily requested but Apple’s way of tackling it was a little bit surprising… Also, according to Apple “users can now see if the power management feature that dynamically manages maximum performance to prevent unexpected shutdowns, first introduced in iOS 10.2.1, is on and can choose to turn it off. This feature can be found in Settings -> Battery and is available for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.”
