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 – A Twick Twament

This week on the show I have not so twick twaments (quick comments) regarding piracy, and the ideas behind it, as well as how Google plans to keep updating Chrome on XP a year after Microsoft ditches the OS. We learn that Elon Musk wants to make the Lotus Espirit Bond prop that he bought into a real thing, we just aren’t sure if it will be branded Tesla yet.
