TDH – Happy End of Year

This week on the show, I talk about the security community, both in how they try to prove strength, and how the NSA could improve it’s public image. We learn that Google is assembling more robotic companies under their perview, and those crazies with tape over their laptop cameras might be able to say “I told you so”. Facebook lets you donate to non-profits, and hopefully the IEC will make all laptop chargers a standard.

TDH – A Bit of a Follow-up Show

This week on the show, I follow up on both the story of Instagram’s announcement and about Alan Mulally being the new Microsoft CEO. It seems like you can now text your friends pictures through Instagram and we have another name to cross off the Microsoft CEO short-list, Qualcomm’s Mollenkopf. Google may be doing you a favor when it comes to email advertisements, and may be trying to cut Intel out of the server chip market. All that and more this week.

TDH – Evil & Information

This week on the show I talk about, and get a little frustrated at how companies are being evil, when they collect, use and sell information about you and your habits. The House passed a bill to limit patent trolls, and I hope that the driver who got pulled over for wearing Google Glass gets the third degree. Online ads should be more clearly marked as such, and in the spirit of Christmas, Microsoft and Google are fighting over tracking Santa.
