TDH – Nokia and All the Internet

This week on the show I talk at length about the Nokia announcement, and the implications of Apple releasing Mavericks for free. We get into a long series of stores on new things going on in the internet these days, from nationalization of internet within countries to the decline of Wikipedia. It should be a no brainer, but don’t text, call or be distracted while driving, it comes up with the announcement of Chrome coming to Tesla Model S in 2014.

TDH – Mobile Focus

Back on the air after a basketball hiatus! Finally! This week on the show I talk about many things mobile, from getting Wikipedia in text message form, to Visa’s new mobile payment project. You’ll soon be able to access the internet on your cell phone in North Korea, but not before you see what Google wants to build an expansion to the Googleplex.
