TDH – Sick (of iPhone 5)

All alone this week as I talk about some of the snafus that the iPhone 5 is facing as it comes out, between iOS 6’s Maps application to Samsung naming the iPhone 5 in the ongoing lawsuits between the two companies. Germany urges the public to stop using IE, and you should too. On your trip over, take a Boeing aircraft so that you can help keep social media’s history from disapearing.

TDH – Lightning Rant

This week on the show, I’m all alone, but I go on at length about how I think the Ligthning connector is both a blessing and a curse. Of course the new iPhone was announced this week, and everybody is gaga about it. I think the real technological advancement this week came from Intel and their announcement of the digital radio on chip. Just think about how much R&D went into that. I could talk about it for a while. Enjoy the new ebay logo, and do let me know what I don’t know about font.

TDH – Sixth iPhone

This week on the show, I’m all alone, so that means I decided to let the show run short. I talked about the impending anouncement of the 6th iPhone, and how when Windows Phone 8 comes out in late October, not that many people will really care. Oh! and Oracle finally got around to fixing a over 4 month old vulnerability in Java. Happy Updating everybody!
