TDH – Accept that Facebook Gift

This week on the show I’m looking forward to seeing a Samsung flexible smartphone, but I highly doubt anyone would by it on Dish Netowrk’s wireless service. Lets hope that it runs stock Android because of Google’s new SDK modification. If you want to feel small, go take a look at Google’s latest Chrome Experiment, 100,000 Stars, or make fun of another former presidential candidate, Bob Dole.

TDH – Touch Me

This week on the show, we talk at length about new touch things. How Yahoo is updating its homepage once again to try to stay relevant in the new world of the touch interface, how RIM’s touch and security centered BB10 OS made it past government standards, and how you will be able to touch your credit card soon. Jam with some friends on Google’s ‘Jam with Chrome’ while you wait for your bank to call you about getting a new card, or tune in next week!

TDH – Phones After Sandy

This week on The Digital Hazard, we talk a fair amount about smartphones and their future in society. Everything from how we hope there will no longer be a reason to steal them, to how Microsoft hopes to convert iPhone users with a good sync experience on their Macs. I talk lightly about my fear of policy makers regarding internet regulations, as motivated by Russia’s new Deep Packet Inspection laws.
