TDH – My Island

This week on the show, we buy and Island! Okay, not really. Larry Page lost his voice, Larry Ellison buys most of a Hawaiian island, and a US senator tells Google and Apple to dispense with the spy plane surveillance. Also, we have further proof that Apple designs things that are easily designed, and there is a bit of drama regarding who knew what when regarding Microsoft’s Surface announcement. Please don’t buy these pants, please.

TDH – The Internet

This time on the show, we talk about The Internet. I’ll leave you to contemplate that fact for a while.

Spurred on by the video referenced in the article and the silly review of a children’s book, I stumble through some of the simple things regarding the medium that we have come to know and at this point take for granted.

TDH – All Over Web

This week on the show, I was all alone, but I enjoyed myself, and I think I put on a quality show. I discussed seemingly everything web related, from Microsoft’s E3 announcement about entertainment on the Xbox, to the Apple v. Google Map showdown of 2012. Not to mention the Apple versus (everyone who makes a smartphone that isn’t the iPhone) battle of our time. Hint: HTC is the target this week. But no matter, because Twitter has a new logo and Facebook is going to be even more attractive for pedophiles.
