This week, Windows 10 is blowing up, a killer Mac exploit, Yahoo is attacked, What does an engineer look like?, the end of Hitchbot, and the hoverboard is back, yes, again…but this time it really works (kinda)… and much much more
This week, Devindra and Andy are joined by former regular co-host (and current TechMeme editor) Lidija Davis as we discuss Groupon’s IPO launch, Google claims Apple’s Siri is a ‘competitive threat’, Disney & YouTube team up, Barnes & Noble’s new Nook Tablet, Steve Jobs’ lost interview, Google + opens up for businesses, Consumer Reports recommends the iPhone 4S, Adobe ceases mobile Flash development, and we look at the Verge.
We discuss Spotify’s patent infringement woes, Google’s stance on ‘bogus patents”, Logitech cuts the price on their GoogleTV device (and loses a CEO), a bogus study claiming IE users are dumb, Apple has more cash than the US government, AT&T throttles Unlimited Data subscribers, President Obama spams users on Twitter (and loses 40K followers), 92% of Newt Gingrich’s Twitter followers are fake, Foxconn to replace workers with 1M robots, Adobe launches HTML5 alternative to Flash, and Apple launched iCloud beta.
Later, we discuss Operation ShadyRAT, one of the largest, most widespread cyber-espionage campaigns ever perpetrated, and we ponder whether handheld gaming consoles are obsolete in the era of the smartphone.
