Show on Feb. 20th 2011

Hello All,

We are still having a show tomorrow even though there is going to be a basketball preemption. You will not be able to listen to the show from the stream linked to on, instead please go to this link to listen this week.
This is the last week that we will be on this stream, next weekend we will be back on the wrct stream.
Of course you will always be able to listen to the show, and download it for your viewing pleasure right here.


a long show

Thanks for listening live if you were, and thanks for downloading if you weren’t. We had a long show to make it easy on Chris with basketball transitions. This was a pretty good show today, we had some personnel problems, as our brains went on tangents for things, and then we didn’t know where we had ended up. Finally Nokia may adopt another OS for their smartphones, some Google stories, and our first email response to a story, please keep them coming!

A friend showed me this article,River of IPv4 addresses officially runs dry, and I thought it fit well following up what you talked about last week.

Basically they’ve given away the last IPv4 address blocks. We still haven’t run out of IP addresses yet, but once the internet registries won’t have any new addresses to give out after this batch. That is at least until IPv6 is introduced with IP addresses that are 39 digits instead of 12. I did have a few questions though. The article said that of the 4.3 billion addresses available with IPv4 3.7 billion of them were unusable. Can you explain why that is? The last five blocks were also split between five different internet registries, but yet with projected use some of these registries will run out of addresses almost a year before others. Why wasn’t there some priority given to, for example, the Asia-Pacific RIR, APNIC, who is, according to the article going to run out of addresses within months. It also mentions that things like video chatting will be made more difficult if you end up having to share your IP address. What does that really mean for the average Joe, and how would we know if we were using a shared IP?


Show on Sunday Feb. 6th 2011

Hello All,

We are still having a show tomorrow even though there is going to be a basketball preemption. You will not be able to listen to the show from the stream linked to on, instead please go to this link to listen this week.
I will put up a post like this before every show that will be preempted by a basketball game that is on our own stream. Of course you will always be able to listen to the show, and download it for your viewing pleasure right here.


Today’s show went on air here at WRCT, the next few weeks there will be shows, but they won’t be found at the usual place. If you want to listen live, please go to This Stream to listen for the next few weekends. I will be posting the link before the shows, so you can check back in here for the link before we go on.

We had a nice, if slightly packed show today, but we got it all in. Definitely a fun time had by all as we hit internet protocols, and privay concerns, some quick hits. Also, it doesn’t really matter what your sign is because we al l have to live life.

TDH – Half Apple Show

Welcome back to the new semester! We had a pretty packed show, even though we weren’t actually on the air (More on that in the show). Today was fun to get back in the sattle. We talked for a long time about Verizon iPhone, and then onto some Google news. Looking forward to getting a stream up for contingency purposes. More on that if it happens, check back here!

Like I said at the top of the broadcast, the week was a slow one for tech news, but you take what you get, there are ups and downs.

TDH – Beware the Digital Hazard

Again, Erik is off on holiday, and Chris joined me today. Chris should be joining me next week as well. Today we talked about the election, after everybody and their uncle has given you their take. I get a little confused on how LG can produce a dual core tablet, and why Apple should (or shouldn’t) actually pay out on a class action lawsuit, cause Google isn’t.

TDH – We are going to Everest

MWAHAHAHA! It was Halloween today on The Digital Hazard. I mean it was Halloween everywhere, but it permeated the show too. The only evil things we talked about were Firesheep and Facebook’s ad model. James Cameron is still monetarily focused, and we are going to podcast from Everest.
