TDH – Privacy

Today on the show, Erik was off, and Chris joined me to talk about everything from environmentally friendly datacenters to your privacy in the face of Dropbox. I’m not trying to paint Dropbox as the bad guy here, but you should be a little concerned. The 6-Bit Byte, Facebook Frackups and Science and Kickers rejoin our show today, as new concerns about Google Streetview cars and the power of 9-Volts are explored. Enjoy!
