TDH – I Want Results

This week on the show, we speak to a number of Linux-y things, from native support of Netflix, which was a long time coming, to the new found ability to run Android apps in Chrome. There is a project underway to get a SMS based web browser off the ground for android users in third-world nations without a data plan, and Tom Wheeler has stated that 4Mbps broadband will keep rural America on the wrong side of the digital divide. We dive head first into the reason that security tools need better user experiences and the precedent a new Senate bill will place on government officials accessing emails stored on foreign servers. All that and a bit more this week on the show.

TDH – Is Elon Musk Ironman?

This week on the show we talk about music in it’s latest incarnations, YouTube plans to block artist’s music videos if they don’t pay for the subscription service, but T-Mobile won’t be counting your music listening against your data usage on their plan. Google launches an initiative to get more young women interested in Computer Science, which I feel falls a little short of what it promises, but Google might be turning out the next generation of women coders for the drones that NASA is going to fly on Titan. We talk quite a bit about personal encryption and security, as we follow up with the TrueCrypt story and new revelations out of the UK regarding industrial strength data collection. A few FCC stories, regarding a bill in Congress to prohibit internet ‘fast lanes’ as well as the reason behind the largest fine the FCC has ever handed out. All that and a little more this week on the show.
