TDH – Full Address and Government Decisions

This week on the show, we speak at length about the recent news that the IPv4 addresses are essentially exhausted, as well as how FCC Chairman Wheeler wants to be able to preempt state laws for wireless broadband access. Tesla announces that all of it’s patents are free to be used by anyone, while the US Marshals Service holds auctions for the Bitcoins that were seized from Silk Road. Also of note, the 11th circuit court ruled that cellular location data can’t be obtained without a warrant, and NTT Docomo wants us all to use wearable SIM technology. I speak out nearly against the curation aspect of Amazon’s Prime Music service, in the context of it’s competitors, not Spotify or Rdio, but actual music on the radio. All that and a little more this week!

TDH – Technology isn’t Political

This week on the show, I talk about a number of cool things, between why Wi-Fi is not harmful to you, that there is an internal network in each Tesla model S, and how supersymmetry may or may not be a natural phenomenon. The message I drove home from other stories is that the political and social battles that we wage shouldn’t be waged in the technology sphere.

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.
