Thank you all for a great year!

Hello everybody,

I wanted to thank all of you loyal listeners (and bots that come visit the site) for being with the show for the past year. I always enjoy spending an hour on the air on Sundays, and I hope that you all enjoy what I have to say, whether you tune in live, or you download the shows later on.


Thank you again, and here is to another great year of The Digital Hazard in 2013!


I will see you on the radio at the start of the new semester.

TDH – Revisit Old Tech

This week on the show, the last one in 2012, I talk about the recent news of the UN “taking over” the internet, the NHTSA’s plan to have “black boxes” in all cars and how T-Mobile will get Apple devices. This all interspered in discussion of old technologies that are either leaving us behind or coming back, Payphones, Kodak’s imaging, and Cassette Tapes. You’ll have to listen to know what is getting a refresh. See you on the radio in 2013!

TDH – Facebook’s Future

This week on the show I talk about Motorola’s attempt at an injunction against Microsoft, which was unsuccessful. I speak at length about Apple’s future operating system, which is to reported to be named Lynx. The main concentration of my rant this week is actually Facebook’s mobile experience, which I have talked at length about on previous shows, but I tried not to overlap with previous comments. Enjoy.
