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.
