TDH – Is Elon Musk Ironman?

This week on the show we talk about music in it’s latest incarnations, YouTube plans to block artist’s music videos if they don’t pay for the subscription service, but T-Mobile won’t be counting your music listening against your data usage on their plan. Google launches an initiative to get more young women interested in Computer Science, which I feel falls a little short of what it promises, but Google might be turning out the next generation of women coders for the drones that NASA is going to fly on Titan. We talk quite a bit about personal encryption and security, as we follow up with the TrueCrypt story and new revelations out of the UK regarding industrial strength data collection. A few FCC stories, regarding a bill in Congress to prohibit internet ‘fast lanes’ as well as the reason behind the largest fine the FCC has ever handed out. All that and a little more this week on the show.

TDH – Mobile Focus

Back on the air after a basketball hiatus! Finally! This week on the show I talk about many things mobile, from getting Wikipedia in text message form, to Visa’s new mobile payment project. You’ll soon be able to access the internet on your cell phone in North Korea, but not before you see what Google wants to build an expansion to the Googleplex.
