TechBytes Audiocast – Episode 44 – 7/05/11 – “The Four Horsemen”

Intro music: “I fought the troll” by Tom Smith.  You can find more of his work here.

Hosts: Tim (OpenBytes) Roy (Techrights) Gordon (ThistleWeb)

Guest: Rusty (TheShowThatSux)

Interview: Brandon Lozza (Fedora Ambassador)

Dean Moore is the featured artist today. An energetic track which we hope you will enjoy!

We are pleased have Rusty back for another show – Rusty, who hosts his own video show and has a Youtube channel here brings his energy and knowledge to episode 44.

Todays show has me disapearing towards the end of the first segment.  Blame O2 and the only reason I can write these show notes is because of T-Mobile and the ability to tether my HTC.

Its a packed show and as well as having Rusty on-board , we also have Brandon Lozza being interviewed by Roy.

Today’s topics covered:

* Security, Privacy & Paranoia  –  How can a moody download of the latest film be a threat to America? We discuss the numerous issues and touch on some articles regarding this on the net.

* Canonical – We talk about staff movements in the company that brings you Ubuntu.

Facebook purchasing Skype? – We discuss.

* Sony – A look at the Sony security breach and the implications it may have.

Our mid-show track was “This Town is Mine” by Dean Moore (from the album Caught in the Moment)
