This week, a bushel of Apple headlines, including revealing evidence in the ongoing Apple/Samsung trial; how a tech reporter’s online identity was demolished through a social engineering hack on Apple & Amazon tech support.
Plus, Starbucks invests $25 million– & their entire paypoint infrastructure– in Square payments.
Geeks Of Doom’s The Drill Down is a roundtable-style audio podcast where we discuss the most important issues of the week, in tech and on the web and how they affect us all.
Hosts are Geeks of Doom contributor Andrew Sorcini (Mr. BabyMan), VentureBeat editor Devindra Hardawar, marketing research analyst Dwayne De Freitas, and Startup Digest CTO Christopher Burnor. Occasionally joining them is Techmeme editor Lidija Davis.
This week Mu, Tom and Andy discuss Apple’s new iLife, OSX Lion, and MacBook Air offerings, Steve Jobs’ uncharacteristic 4Q phone call to investors, additional privacy concerns at Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg on ‘The Social Network’, Ray Ozzie leaves Microsoft’s Chief Architect post, Wikileaks’ funding is frozen, and Starbucks opens an in-store community portal.
