TDH – Confusion and Sadness

This week on the program, we start off by talking about technology that needlessly makes life ‘simpler’, Keurig’s new anti-copying K-Cup system and GE’s foray into Phillip’s smartphone controlled lighting market. Nielsen reports what we already suspected, that streaming is taking market control from downloads, at least in the US, and Google’s anti-webspan chief, Matt Cutts is taking leave for a few months. After talking about DARPA’s emergency response robot challenge, we go into examples of things that are threats to the open internet by 2025, misuse of the ECJ’s ‘right to be forgotten’, and revelations about how little you have to do for the NSA to follow up on your internet traffic. You also might want to steer clear of Facebook, especially if your mood is volatile. All this and more this week!
