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.
