TDH – I will not mention Lyft/Uber again period

This week on the show, we discuss Sprint’s withdrawl from the T-Mobile purchase, how Samsung and Apple haven’t really gotten past their petty money issues, and Wikimedia Foundation’s list of pages removed from Google results in the EU. I spend a deal of time ranting about Lyft’s latest idea, which lead to the affirmation as the title of the show. Switching gears, we highlight a doctoral student here at CMU for her work humanizing robots of the future, and praise Yahoo and Google for promising compatible end-to-end email encryption in 2015. Don’t miss the supermoon tonight, but if you do, you can catch an encore early in September. All that and more this week!

TDH – Touch Texture

This week on the show, I talk about how the Internet governance agencies have split from the United States guidance, we see T-Mobile offer very generous roaming data rates, and how Disney has been working on touch screen textures. Chris joined us to talk about brewing beer in space, and how Google installed monorail cars in the Sydney office.
