TDH – NQS (Not Quite Speechless)

This week on the show I am left, not quite speechless regarding a couple of things, some of which are rather scary when you extrapolate the precedent, like the loss of your 4th amendment rights if you auto-identify as a hacker, or the high frequency spread of BIOS level malware. We explore what it means for the Obama administration to partner with reliability engineers from Google, Oracle and Red Hat to fix the issues with healthcare.gov. Will we get to the bottom of the genes that express mathematical aptitude?

TDH – Tastes Like Sugar

This week on the show, I talked about some upcoming Apple news ahead of the SEptember 10th announcement, we recap the smartwatch bandwagon, and Google really wants Chrome to be an OS. Really really. Make sure it supports biometric passwords, and they might be onto something. All that and more this week.
