TDH – Glass and Government

This week on the show, I talk about many things, from the egg in Eric Schmidt’s eye regarding Glass to the good news that CISPA is dead in the Senate. We talk about the frankly unbelievable saga of a bus line company, and the stupid Budweiser ploy to make you friends. Don’t drive drunk.
