Make sure it supports biometric passwords, and they might be onto something. All that and more this week.

TDH – Facebook’s Future

This week on the show I talk about Motorola’s attempt at an injunction against Microsoft, which was unsuccessful. I speak at length about Apple’s future operating system, which is to reported to be named Lynx. The main concentration of my rant this week is actually Facebook’s mobile experience, which I have talked at length about on previous shows, but I tried not to overlap with previous comments. Enjoy.
