TDH – Evil & Information

This week on the show I talk about, and get a little frustrated at how companies are being evil, when they collect, use and sell information about you and your habits. The House passed a bill to limit patent trolls, and I hope that the driver who got pulled over for wearing Google Glass gets the third degree. Online ads should be more clearly marked as such, and in the spirit of Christmas, Microsoft and Google are fighting over tracking Santa.

TDH – Privacy: A Social Construct

This week on the show I talk at length about the comment from Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist about privacy. He claims that ‘privacy’ as we know it is an anomaly of society, and I say that is a bad argument for getting rid of it. I also rebuke Samsung’s idea of pre-installing anti-theft software on your smartphone, and we pour one out for WinAmp, which will be no more after December of 2013.

TDH – Free Information

This week on the show, I jump into the policy decisions of the new FCC chair, Tom Wheeler, as well as a big win for access to information out of the eight year long court case regarding Google Books. We look briefly at a new technology to replace the credit cards burning a hole in your pocket, and how and where people are turning for their news these days. All that and more this week.

TDH – NQS (Not Quite Speechless)

This week on the show I am left, not quite speechless regarding a couple of things, some of which are rather scary when you extrapolate the precedent, like the loss of your 4th amendment rights if you auto-identify as a hacker, or the high frequency spread of BIOS level malware. We explore what it means for the Obama administration to partner with reliability engineers from Google, Oracle and Red Hat to fix the issues with Will we get to the bottom of the genes that express mathematical aptitude?

TDH – Nokia and All the Internet

This week on the show I talk at length about the Nokia announcement, and the implications of Apple releasing Mavericks for free. We get into a long series of stores on new things going on in the internet these days, from nationalization of internet within countries to the decline of Wikipedia. It should be a no brainer, but don’t text, call or be distracted while driving, it comes up with the announcement of Chrome coming to Tesla Model S in 2014.

TDH – A Twick Twament

This week on the show I have not so twick twaments (quick comments) regarding piracy, and the ideas behind it, as well as how Google plans to keep updating Chrome on XP a year after Microsoft ditches the OS. We learn that Elon Musk wants to make the Lotus Espirit Bond prop that he bought into a real thing, we just aren’t sure if it will be branded Tesla yet.

TDH – Apple’s Genre Experts

This week on the show I talk about how Apple is hiring “Genre Experts” and should be hiring college radio DJs, to do the same thing. Uber and Lyft are now an officially legal thing in California, and while Google spins off Calico to fight aging, Steve Ballmer calls Microsoft a monopoly. All in a day’s work.
