TDH – 100th Show!

This week on the show Erik joins me, and it is just like old times! We talk about T-Mobile’s latest consumer oriented policy, the possible implications of the launch of the HTC One (M8) running Windows Phone. Discussion of the launch of Windows 9 turns toward human computer interfaces as we move into new Beacon “Stickers”. A little bit of security talk this week as well, it seems the NSA might be helping to harden Tor, which is actually a good thing. We hope you enjoy!

TDH – Tesla Fire and Lightning Charging

This week on the show, I talk about the end of the hunt for the voice of Siri, thanks to Ms. Susan Bennett, how HTC may end up being a Windows Phone partner like Nokia, but thanks to Nokia, you might be able to charge your phone with a thunderstorm. All that and more this week.
