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.
