TechBytes Audiocast – Episode 53 – 06/07/11 – “Pirates Ye Be Warned!”

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

Hosts: Tim (OpenBytes) Roy (Techrights)

The USA is declaring war on Pirates....specifically UK ones.

A diverse collection of digital musings from Roy and myself.  Weighing in at approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, you will hear (amongst many things) how a .com domain could get you a free trip to the USA and how a certain fruit logo can make you more attractive to other people! – The secrets of sexual attraction are only part of the revelations you’ll hear in another unique episode of the TechBytes show.

* Tablets – Microsoft fails to impress.  Is this another market where Microsoft falls flat on its face? [TechRadar]

* Roy makes observations and opinions on the impartiality of tech news sites.

* IE Browser usage decline – If you’ve used IE, this shouldn’t come as a surprise.  We also discuss Chromium,  Firefox and our personal preferences to browse the world wide web. [CNET]

* The US is trying to extradite UK Pirates! – Get yourself a free trip to the States with a copyright infringing .com or .net domain! [eWeek]

* Toyota is looking to Linux for its future [Linux Foundation]

We also look at Fedora in public libraries, I consider my position on Gnome 3 shell.  We look at how Unity is being received now that the dust has settled, how an Apple logo is supposed to make you more appealing to other people and finally a few predictions – Including my Ballmer prediction from last year.

Both myself and Roy have Creative Commons music choices, with my selection being Demon Ridden by Cynicism from the album Portrait of Extinction.
