TDH – The Digital Hazard for OSX

This week on the show, I talk about some of the cool announcements out of Google’s I/O conference this past week, including the new form of phone unlock, and a refactoring of the runtimes in the OS. Also in Google news, they have begun compliance with the EU ‘right to be forgotten’ law. Meanwhile, Apple has discontinued Aperature, and plans to build a 4.7” iPhone. A potential win for the state of Missouri when it comes to personal security of digital communications. We talk about the NSA transparency report and Facebook’s attempt to recover bulk data that was turned over to New York state. All that and more!
