TDH – Android in SPACE

This week on the show, we outlaw Google Glass while driving, uphold your ability to sell, mame, or burn that copy of that book you (legally) own, and discuss the resignation of Julius Genakowski, the Chair of the FCC. I hope to put up a pre-record for next week, but worst comes to worst, you will be treated to an older episode. Enjoy!

TDH – Some Silly News

This week on the show, we talk about some gaffs regarding mobile in honor of the end of MWC in Barcelona, including the ban on unlocking cell phones, Mozilla’s Firefox OS, and Sergey Brin’s ‘emasculating’ comment. If you are an Evernote user, you should login to reset your password, and if you are a really curious cat, you can find other felines in and around London on the web. I will be back next week.
