TDH – Interesting Show?

All alone today, and it was a little short of a show, but there were some interesting topics, and I pontificated about Mark Zuckerberg, the Government and “security through obscurity.” I’m looking forward to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, even though my Nexus One will never officially run it. In other news you might vote with your iPad, we are trusting fewer people, but Bert and Ernie can tell you how to get to Sesame Street.

TDH – A Metaphor

This week Erik joined me and we had a wonderful time. The comment that was shared in pre-show was that we both really enjoyed the stories that we talked about, and that there was no direct Apple stories. That, I promise you was not a conscious decision.  Other than that, both of us really enjoyed the metaphors that I came up with to describe things in the show. You should listen if only for my creative prowess.
