TDH – Apple’s Genre Experts

This week on the show I talk about how Apple is hiring “Genre Experts” and should be hiring college radio DJs, to do the same thing. Uber and Lyft are now an officially legal thing in California, and while Google spins off Calico to fight aging, Steve Ballmer calls Microsoft a monopoly. All in a day’s work.

TDH – Microsoft’s iPads

This week on the show, it is really cold in the studio, so I talk rather quickly to keep myself warm. But what do I talk about? The Twitter IPO, AT&T’s purchase of spectrum from Verizon, Facebook’s atrocious idea for ads, as well as the very scary backdoor the NSA has in a cryptographic spec. Oh, and the new iPhones. Those silly things…

TDH – Policy Heavy

This week on the show I talk about a fair number of policy and governmental programs, as well as the possible public reactions to the decisions, things from the $10 billion per year crypto-cracking program and the FISA orders to the useage spike of Tor in recent weeks. Stick around for a defense of STEM graduates and I’m sure we will talk about tech products next week on the show.
