TDH – I Want Results

This week on the show, we speak to a number of Linux-y things, from native support of Netflix, which was a long time coming, to the new found ability to run Android apps in Chrome. There is a project underway to get a SMS based web browser off the ground for android users in third-world nations without a data plan, and Tom Wheeler has stated that 4Mbps broadband will keep rural America on the wrong side of the digital divide. We dive head first into the reason that security tools need better user experiences and the precedent a new Senate bill will place on government officials accessing emails stored on foreign servers. All that and a bit more this week on the show.

TDH – Product Heavy Show

This week on the show, we spend quite a fair amount of time on Apple, and the news of this past week, and the speculation on what will undoubtedly be the news of the week to come. The iCloud hack serves as a good Public Service Announcement for understanding how secure your personal effects actually are in the cloud. Not to be completely overshadowed, Motorola announced updated versions of the Moto X and Moto G smartphones, as well as the 360 smartwatch, and something called the Hint. We take a quick look through the latest from Nest, the home automation company, and talk about Tom Wheeler’s lofty goals for 25Mbps data speed broadband competition in the US. All that and more this week.
