TDH – Moon Pizza

Erik will be joining me in studio next week, so we are all looking forward to that. Chris joined me off and on, and we probably enjoyed each other more than we needed to to get though the show. Be aware of the Adobe CS5 GIF exploit, and the false Google certificates. We will be on the lookout for Amazon’s new tablet competitor to the iPad, hopefully it won’t be coming to AT&T &T so long as the Justice Department wins their suit.

TDH – Company Frackups

Our last show before summer, Erik rejoined me. This week we run down all the shenanigans that have occurred in the corporate space in the last week. Its quite an impressive (or depressive) list. Also, Apple and Sony get disdainful publicity, and the Royal Wedding happened, at the expense of science.
