Google-Certificates-Bridge User Agent .well-known/acme-challenge Requests

I recently have been having many requests coming from Google IPv4 and IPv6 addresses with the user agent “Google-Certificates-Bridge” accessing unique files within /.well-known/acme-challenge/XXXX.

These requests are used by Cpanel, Google and some other services for the purpose of verifying SSL certificates issued to the domain. No need to worry, as long as the requests are coming from a familiar IP, this is not likely attack traffic.

This gives us a small tidbit of info, the network currently resolves to host.starlinkisp.net. We can expect this to be the future domain for StarLink. For now, it 301 redirects to the SpaceX homepage, but I’m monitoring the domain for updates.

From this info, we can gather Starlink is likely using a Juniper powered router for this single IP. Unfortunately, connections to port 25 and 22 timeout so no further information could be gathered from that end.

Adsense: Is this your site? We’ve detected your ad code on the site below…

Is this your site? We’ve detected your ad code on the site below. If it’s your site, click Yes to add it to your Sites.
Web caches, proxies, and translation services often appear as sites where Google Adsense has detected your ad code. Here is a list of services I’ve seen on my account:
  • translatoruser-int.com [Translate]
  • translate.google.com [Translate]
  • translate.google.ru [Translate]
  • translate.google.com.br [Translate]
  • translatoruser.net [Translate]

  • cloudflare.works [Admin Configuration of Apps on Cloudflare]
  • yandex.ru [Translate and Cache]
  • dakwak.com [Translate]
  • Web caches and other [Google “Cache:”, other]

For my properties, I primarily receive this message from the Adsense console due to translation services accessing the site and pulling my Adsense code through to their front-end.  Generally, it is not a good idea to add translation services, caches, and proxies to your Adsense account. Although depending on the number of readers you have translating your site, you could gain a few extra percent of ad revenue. This does, however, come with some major risks which may outweigh the small percentage of revenue gain you could see from these new domains.

Within the Adsense Sites configuration [Adsense > Sites > Overview] you can control the list of sites your code appears on. 

This feature was added as a way to protect your account from “malicious use of your ad code by others”. The sites in your sites list are the only sites that are permitted to use your ad code. If a site displaying your ad code is not on your list of sites, then no ads will show on that site.

Malicious use of your ad code could include generating false clicks on your site for the purpose of harming your Adsense account, revenue, and reputation. A malicious actor might include a competitor or someone else looking to harm your site for their own financial gain.

By enabling translation sites, caches,  and proxies to display your ad code, you open your account be displayed alongside content you might not control. Malicious actors could serve up your ad code alongside restricted content creating negative marks on your Adsense account.  Because Proxies are known to be couriers of less desirable internet content (and thus are disallowed by Adsense ToS), I would never risk adding a proxy domain to my AdSense account. Auto-translating sites are a risk as well due to the poor quality of the translations. In most cases, auto-translated content is considered low-quality by Adsesnse. Because caches are often a direct mirror of your content they carry a smaller risk of being low-quality or malicious, but for most, the risk likely doesn’t outweigh the payoff.

 

Robinhood Gold Downgrade

Robinhood Gold Downgrade

Hi Luke,

Your account was downgraded from Robinhood Gold to Robinhood Instant. We’ve removed $2000.00 of additional buying power and reduced your instant deposit limit by $2000.00. You should no longer be charged for Robinhood Gold.

Please remember that trading with Robinhood is commission-free. We’re committed to building new, exceptional products for our customers, both free and paid.

We’re really sorry to see you go, and would appreciate your feedback on Robinhood Gold. You can reply to this email directly with any questions, suggestions, or other feedback that you have.

Sincerely,
The Robinhood Team
robinhood.com

Please email us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
Robinhood Gold is a bundle of premier services available for a monthly fee that will vary depending on the tier of services for which customers must qualify and select. Robinhood Gold services include the ability to borrow funds in excess of equity on margin, the ability to have access to and trade in the extended-hours markets, and the ability to receive an increase in instant deposits up to the maximum amount of the Robinhood Gold tier selected. Furthermore, participating Robinhood Gold accounts are subject to Pattern Day Trading rules.

Monthly fees charged will be in lieu of any interest fees that are typically charged to margin accounts for the borrowing of funds. If borrowing above the selected tier, additional interest will be charged to this additional amount at the end of the month.

Robinhood Gold will permit participating customers to engage in extended hours trading, meaning outside of the regular trading hours of 9:30am and 4pm ET. There are unique risks to Extended Hours Trading and by participating in this type of trading customers are deemed to understand and agree to accept such risks.

All investments involve risk and the past performance of a security, or financial product does not guarantee future results or returns. Keep in mind that while diversification may help spread risk it does not assure a profit, or protect against loss, in a down market. There is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities, or other financial products. Investors should consider their investment objectives and risks carefully before investing.

Margin trading involves interest charges and risks, including the potential to lose more than deposited or the need to deposit additional collateral in a falling market. Before using margin, customers must determine whether this type of trading strategy is right for them given their specific investment objectives, experience, risk tolerance, and financial situation. For more information please see our Margin Disclosure StatementMargin Agreement and FINRA Investor Information. These disclosures contain information on our lending policies, interest charges, and the risks associated with margin accounts.

Free trading refers to $0 commissions for Robinhood Financial self-directed individual cash or margin brokerage accounts that trade U.S. listed securities via mobile devices. Relevant SEC & FINRA fees may apply. Please see our Commission and Fee Schedule.

Robinhood is currently registered in the following jurisdiction(s). This is not an offer, solicitation of an offer, or advice to buy or sell securities, or open a brokerage account in any jurisdiction where Robinhood is not registered.

Investors should be aware that system response, execution price, speed, liquidity, market data, and account access times are affected by many factors, including market volatility, size and type of order, market conditions, system performance, and other factors.

Investors should consider the investment objectives and unique risk profile of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) carefully before investing. ETFs are subject to risks similar to those of other diversified portfolios. Leveraged and Inverse ETFs may not be suitable for all investors and may increase exposure to volatility through the use of leverage, short sales of securities, derivatives and other complex investment strategies. Although ETFs are designed to provide investment results that generally correspond to the performance of their respective underlying indices, they may not be able to exactly replicate the performance of the indices because of expenses and other factors. A prospectus contains this and other information about the ETF and should be read carefully before investing. Customers should obtain prospectuses from issuers and/or their third party agents who distribute and make prospectuses available for review. ETFs are required to distribute portfolio gains to shareholders at year end. These gains may be generated by portfolio rebalancing or the need to meet diversification requirements. ETF trading will also generate tax consequences. Additional regulatory guidance on Exchange Traded Products can be found by clicking here.

System response, execution price, speed, liquidity, market data, and account access times are affected by many factors, including market volatility, size and type of order, market conditions, system performance, and other factors.

Robinhood Gold Pricing and APR

Robinhood Gold works on a tiered pricing system, increasing the cost of gold based on your balance, investments, and desired buying power.

When it comes down to the numbers, Robinhood gold essentially costs 5% APR on whatever buying power you desire with a minimum charge of $10/month on the first $2000. Although a lower tier of $1000 extra buying power at $6/month is listed here, Robinhood currently only offers the $2000 buying power tier. In the future, they may offer a Gold account at $5/month with no increased buying power. 

Robinhood now has extended trading hours as a standard with the free accounts. The gold account brings (limited) instant deposits and increased buying power. It’s unclear what features the gold account may have if it is being offered with no increased buying power.

Depositing International Checks on Azlo

After signing up for Azlo as an inexpensive business banking replacement for my current fee-heavy big-bank account, I found myself in a position of looking to deposit an International check – in Non-USD currency.

Unfortunately, when I ran my question by the Azlo support team:

Hi, how can I deposit an international check in a different currency? Are there any fees for international check deposits?

Azlo gave me the response:

Hello Luke,

Thanks for reaching out. Currently, Azlo is not able to accecpt international checks.

Best,

Felicia
Azlo Support Team

So as of Feb 11 2019, 5:34 PM PST, Azlo is unable to accept international checks (and thus also has no fee-schedule set out for them).

I’ve contacted Azlo for further details if they ever plan to support international checks. I recommend contacting them yourself to request future support of foreign currency checks.

Their reply:

With that being said, yes, Azlo does plan in the feature to offer international payments, however, we do not have an estimated timeframe for when this feature would be released.

Fitbit Gemini Release Date, Features, and Specs

On February 4th, Fitbit received FCC approval for a new Bluetooth enabled device labeled “Gemini” according to the documents. The device has been assigned a model number FB415 and given the label “SMART WATCH” in the testing documents.

FCC ID: XRAFB415 , IC: 8542A-FB415

Serial Numbers: EVT-FA2-342 , EVT-FA2-338, EVT-FA7197

Other certification numbers were revealed in the e-labeling documents (below):

  • CMIIT ID: 2019DJ0335
  • KCC: R-C-XRA-FB415
  • IFETEL: RCPFIFB19-0053
  • NCC: CCAI19LP0170T1
  • BIS.gov.in: R-41089931
  • BOCRA: BOCRA/TA/2019/4297

Unfortunately, these licensing items don’t provide much additional information as the ID numbers are still not publically registered. Additionally, no Bluetooth registration exists for the device yet.

We can expect a release soon, as Fitbit typically has less than a few months between their FCC filing and the release of their product, April or May 2019 would be a reasonable timeframe.

From the image of the e-label, we can guess this watch may have a screen width of 300 pixels, the hight is so far unknown.
