Oops one tech news in a way that doesn't subscribe and turn on notifications for cuz I said so hello then welcome back to face deck of course the show that gives you all the latest tech news one geek tells me to another that is you happy Monday hope you had a great weekend it was crazy usually nothing happens on the weekend there's no tech news on the weekend but a lot of stuff happened over the last couple days it's like tech news Jesus just opened up his butthole and and tech news to us okay let's get started I gotta tell you today's show is kind of juicy we're gonna start off with the first story story numero uno for the

Day slick raps if you haven't heard of them you probably have especially if you're in the tech community else it'll you be stickers you buy for your phone you put on the phone makes it look different it's like deep brand but like the dollar store version now I'm not gonna lie I have wanted to work with slick raps in the past but not not anymore not not anymore this whole story is absolutely insane a hacker or as he probably wants to be called a cyber security analyst named links ly and ex

Went ahead and tested tested their cyber security before we get into the meat of the story basically what happened was there was a bunch of allegations against slick raps he wanted to go ahead and investigate them and actually hacked their entire company like was so far in this company that within one click could have deleted the whole thing he warned them multiple multiple times tried to reach out to them tried to get their attention sometimes they got back to him sometimes he just blocked him and wanted him to go away and he got to the point where they

Ignored him so bad that well he just went public with the whole thing put out a medium post which has now been taken down in fact that post got taken down his twitter got suspended as far as I know his twitter is back up so that's good but this got really really really bad so he was following up on suspicions that crafts had terrible customer service they had faked giveaways another big allegation was that they used bot accounts to try to promote themselves like they just made a bunch of BOTS Twitter accounts and that's just been

How they could go about their business I guess and slick raps security is just god-awful like so so so bad and he tried to warn them of this they didn't listen he got all the way in here's a list for you he got all admin account details including password hashes all current and historical customer information including addresses emails phone numbers and transactional histories he got API credentials for PayPal payments Pro Braintree basically you know their payment gateways the services that go ahead and process credit card

Payments he also got API credentials for ship hero their warehouse management system and of course all API credentials for slick raps social media accounts this includes like all the way access to Facebook Twitter and Instagram accounts I mean he went as far as to post their balances that slick raps as a company has made throughout the last several months like it's crazy down to the dollar posted the amount that they're making now you might be assuming that he did this with like itll intent in mind or to get money from slick raps but that's not at all the case he tried to

Reach out to them multiple times they blocked him on multiple occasions even though he made it very clear that their security is at risk when they discovered that he was getting into their system they tried to cover up all the tracks on none of this stuff went public and then eventually he got fed up slick graphs even asked if he wanted a bounty if they could pay him and he said no he just wanted the information to be made public because if you don't know it's kind of against the law not to disclose a massive data breach like this when essentially everybody's information has

Been breached that's when you go ahead and I don't know make a statement put out a couple emails but they absolutely ignored it until he exposed them and went public with the information of course now they put out like a public apology it's weird but they did it the company as a whole is just so so sketchy and it's becoming more and more clear now in fact they're probably sketchier than we think this next part I never I would tell you guys I never thought I would go public with this information but here you go at one point a few months ago

Slick graphs I assume their CEO reached out to me via Twitter and tried to like get me to make like an expose video against deep brand like at one point they were like nudging me to make a deep brand hit piece like they wanted me to expose that the later case was like being shipped from deep brand and just a bunch of other stuff they gathered and wanted me to basically expose deep brand for now I'm not sure how much of the conversation I can show you without getting in trouble so this is it for now they messaged me that after we had made the like blue later case controversy

Videos obviously I didn't go ahead and make the D brand hit piece it's just weird it's just weird and I wonder how many other people they reached out to or if it was just me I don't know they're a sketchy company and it's becoming more and more apparent now don't buy stuff from slick raps okay don't do it don't do it there you go there's your endorsement slick wraps all right so jumping into the last bit of today's show over the weekend if you missed it I kinda leet every Apple product that they were planning to announce or launched in

March now since it was the weekend and we don't work on the weekends you probably had to read this somewhere in an article but don't worry I'm gonna tell you right here on today's episode because we know you don't read other tech news articles right you're not like cheating on us or anything right you only get your news from this show right I'm just kidding right okay so on Twitter on Saturday if you don't follow me there well you really missed out here I posted this in the morning sometime effectively what happened was some target employees had

Reached out to me in fact one in particular was looking for air pods two for a customer in the store and when he pulled up air pods to another listing came up for this Apple earpods ex generation priced at $399 $0.99 400 bucks now in my tweets I went ahead and mentioned that this is potentially Apple's over ear studio pods headphones these have been rumors that we've been hearing for a couple years now that Apple has been working on over the ear premium used that term lightly headphones and $400 though it sounds kind of nuts seeing his ear pods Pro or

Like 250 yeah a fool like over the ear style headphone from Apple probably gonna be $400 now I think air pods X would be a cool name but this most likely isn't the name in fact I had mentioned that this is probably just a placeholder in their system until the real product is announced now Apple Insider when they went ahead and covered this story about my tweets they reached out to Target employees and they basically confirmed that yeah most of the time before products are announced they do use placeholder names for those products before a major announcement and

Because the products are in target's system that more than likely means that they're going to launch within a month at least making it just in time for that March event but once I put this out it started an avalanche of product leaks because then other Target employees started looking in their systems for other products they started finding other X generation products or products that use that X placeholder name I put out this tweet as well also in the system is an apple ipod touch x generation priced at $399 now you might be asking what the hell why are we

Getting a $400 iPod Touch ah that's my friends not iPod that iPod Touch ex generation name is just a disguise for what is going to be probably the iPhone 9 2020 I phone new iPhone whatever that iPhone that we know we're getting this month it will at least in March for $400 now this isn't some crazy like system error or anything like that these products were put in pretty much all at the same time in the system in the target system about like three days ago so they were recently put in presumably for a launch within the next

Month also in the system was an Apple iPad ten and a half inch Wi-Fi only X generation now I was told that that iPad is in the system as a display model which is why it's priced at free zero dollars now in my tweet I said that iPad is most likely the new iPad pro that we're expecting then Forbes covered this and in their article they disagreed with me because the iPad pro doesn't come in ten and a half inch or at least that's not what we should expect and sure I guess there's a chance that they're right about that but what I'm saying it's the iPad pro I'm not saying that

It's gonna be a ten and a half inch iPad pro along with all of these devices as I said those names are just disguising the real thing they're placeholders so that size probably isn't even accurate it's probably the iPad pro probably not ten and a half inch at all like I said because of all this a bunch of other Target employees went digging and some gave information to nine to five Mac and those employees also found listings for Apple TV and Apple watch bins new Apple TV new Apple watch bands now those are in the system as Apple watch series x-band now along with this information I

Was also able to get how many SKUs for these products are in this system for example those Apple headphones over the ear headphones there are three SKUs all listed at 399 $400 so we can assume that it's gonna come in three different colors those headphones will come in three different colors space grey silver gold whatever the new $400 iPhone that's there that's listed is Apple iPod Touch X generation that comes in six different SKUs all our $400 as an important point so effectively that kind of means no other additional storage options at least for this listing in particular

They're all $400 six different SKUs so that probably means six different color options and if you weren't aware the iPhone 11 also comes in six different colors so there you go I kind of made a mess over the weekend those are the products most of the products that we are likely to see announced from Apple within the next month either at an event or a website refresh I mention that real quick too so according to my sources with Apple Apple still hasn't decided whether or not to have the event they said internally there's like a 60% chance that the event will happen on

March 30th or 31st or whatever and then a 40% chance that they call it off and instead do a website refresh that could also tell us why these products are in target system early just in case whether Apple does a website refresh or an event these products are ready to go my brain hurts a lot of stuff happened let us know what you guys think about any of the products if you're interested in any of them you're gonna buy them what do you think about all this mess down in the comments below I'm gonna take a break from Otis and that's sure hopefully you like to you learn
