TDH – How and Why

This week we start out with some updates to stories we have covered recently. We comment on the hypocrisy of the different divisions of the US government. We comment on the odd tale of a French designer and his “revolutionary” new Apple product, so revolutionary that Apple doesn’t even know about it! We round out the show with Netflix’s Algorithm that was too expensive and predictions for the ways in which Carbon nano tubes will save the human race.
