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.

TDH – Some Silly News

This week on the show, we talk about some gaffs regarding mobile in honor of the end of MWC in Barcelona, including the ban on unlocking cell phones, Mozilla’s Firefox OS, and Sergey Brin’s ‘emasculating’ comment. If you are an Evernote user, you should login to reset your password, and if you are a really curious cat, you can find other felines in and around London on the web. I will be back next week.
