TDH – Mobile Nutrinos

Today, Erik was back on the line, and we had a very nice show, certainly enjoyed ourselves, and I hope that you do too. This week we have some security warnings to pass along, a fair number of mobile news stories and the sagas of AT&T&T and the iPhone 5 continue.  Lets hope that by next week the faster than light nutrinos will let us speed through some of these sagas.

TDH – All Me

Today was all me, I produced and hosted all alone, no here beside me… Windows 8 is fun, and if you have the free time to set up a VM and play with it, or even dual-boot, I seriously recommend trying it. This is a fun time in terms of battery life improvements due to the low-power processors, and the patent lawsuits. Enjoy your week, and tune in again next time!

TDH – Moon Pizza

Erik will be joining me in studio next week, so we are all looking forward to that. Chris joined me off and on, and we probably enjoyed each other more than we needed to to get though the show. Be aware of the Adobe CS5 GIF exploit, and the false Google certificates. We will be on the lookout for Amazon’s new tablet competitor to the iPad, hopefully it won’t be coming to AT&T &T so long as the Justice Department wins their suit.
