TDH – Some Real Discussion

This week on the show, I talk about a fair amount of things, ranging from Microsoft’s rumored acquisition of the streaming service Rdio, to the possibility of a wristwatch that could replace the smart features of your smart phone. It is a real point of change for people as they have the power to comment on politics on Twitter, and have access to many books through Google’s library project. Enjoy!
