    Not Sold on the Z Fold - Apple CSAM, Crypto Tax, Bypassing Facial Recognition, Samsung Unpacked

    After Apple detailed its plans for protecting against Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM), many questioned the impact such a decision could have. The U.S. is set to pass a new infrastructure bill that features a cryptocurrency tax provision. Researchers have created what they call a set of "master faces" to bypass facial recognition. Samsung announced a slew of foldable phones at its Unpacked event.

    First, Rene Ritchie joins Tech News Weekly to provide an update on Apple's recently announced plans for finding Child Sexual Abuse Material on its platform. Ritchie explains the technology, details some of the criticisms, and discusses the pros and cons of end-to-end encryption.

    Then, Nikhilesh De of CoinDesk stops by to discuss a provision in the U.S.'s new infrastructure bill. The bill, which is set to pass, features a provision regarding a cryptocurrency tax, but some argue the language surrounding the tax is broad and lacks clarity.

    Then, Mikah shares a story from Vice about a study in which researchers created a series of "master faces" that could be used to bypass facial recognition technology.

    Lastly, Jason and Mikah discuss the Samsung Unpacked event. Jason shares his thoughts on the latest announcements and the two ponder the utility of foldable phones and devices.
