TechBytes Audiocast – Episode 55 – 15/07/11 – “Alliance, Alliance, Alliance?”

July 16, 2011 by openbytes

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

Hosts: Tim (OpenBytes) Roy (Techrights)

These show notes are rather late and probably would not have this introduction had it not been for certain dubious characters in comp.os.linux.advocacy trying to suggest that I am blaming Skype for the poor quality.  The answer to the parts of poor sound during this ep are unknown.  We are both using the same software, the same hardware so the only answer is either a temporary issue with Skype or a problem with either of our ISP’s.

Whatever the answer though, I spend alot of time with Skype, so does my family and regardless of who has bought it, I am very happy with the service.

Moving onto the notes, for episode 55 we covered many different topics:

Google – We look at its growth, its Google+ and consider the future for Android.

Mozilla – Its browser, its release schedule.

Distros – We look at ArtistX, Sabayon 6 also talking about MikeOS and Icarus.

ACS:Law – Back in the news and we cover Andrew Crossley and the allegations against him.

Finally Microsoft and Sony? – Nah!

  1. [...] Tim and Roy speak about a variety of subjects ranging from Nortel’s patents, Google’s amazing Android growth, and Google Plus to Ubuntu decline in the news, Sabayon Linux 6, Mozilla versions, and KDE 4.7 (RC). Roy mentions his Argos/Archos revelations from yesterday while Tim brings up a Microsoft rumour and ACS:Law news. Update: the show notes are out. [...]

    Why don’t you do an episode on some of the good stuff Microsoft has done in the past? Would computing be the same today without them etc etc…
    Interesting stuff about Android though!

      Lol. You’ve just put me in mind of that Monty Python scene – “what have the Romans done for us?”

      In all seriousness, its not a bad idea, certainly would make an interesting discussion……..
