TDH – Government Data Hogs

This week on the show, we talk at length about your data on the internet, and who and why they are interested in it. Hint: primarily to make a quick dollar. Specifically we make mention of Vodafone’s unprecedented multi-national review of secret data requests from governments, Microsoft’s call to the US government to end mass data collection and how Google’s new Chrome extension might help secure our emails. It is now official, Sprint has made an offer to buy T-Mobile, and like AT&T before it, we await regulator’s decisions. Turkish ISPs finally unblock YouTube, and Apple might ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack. All that and more this week.
