TechBytes Audiocast – Episode 7 – 14/11/10


November 14, 2010 by openbytes

Theme music is by Tom Smith from the track “I fought the Troll” and you can see more of his excellent work here.

We covered the following news/articles:

JoliBook set to launch with JoliCloud OS

Whilst talking about this mention is made of Peppermint which was reviewed on OpenBytes a few months ago.  You can find that article here.

The Difference Engine: Linux’s Achilles heel

The Economist talks about Linux and in my view the usual “I love Linux but….” type of way.  As you have probably guessed, we were not overly impressed by the article which doesn’t even appear to have an authors name behind it.

I also thank Chips for his Windows Phone 7 contribution and add the information which explores more issues.

Dr Schestowitz of Techrights has his own show notes here.

You can download the ogg version here.

You can download the mp3 version here.

  1. [...] THIS is the seventh episode, which Tim and Roy keep short to obey requests from regular listeners of the show. Our leading story today is a fun FUD piece from The Economist, which is talked about for the first 10 minutes or so. Tim’s site, OpenBytes, will share some links about that. [...]

  2. [...] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Dr. Roy Schestowitz, Tim (Goblin). Tim (Goblin) said: TechBytes Audiocast – Episode 7 – 14/11/10 [...]
