TDH – A Show Plan

This week seems a little formulaic on the show. We follow up on the gender diversity stories from last week, eBay is beating Twitter and Google, our blood boils with revelations about the insecurity of the ubiquitous USB flash drives, and new policies and requests coming out of Russia, including registering popular online bloggers. Tor warned us this week of a possible attack in early July aiming to deanonymize users, and then we jump into product announcements. Apple will buy Swell, the podcasting app, Google is rolling out support for Hangouts for businesses, and there is a new player aiming to buy (part of) T-Mobile USA. All that and more this week!
