Intro music: “I fought the troll” by Tom Smith. You can find more of his work here.
Its been over two weeks since the last show. Was that due to deminishing interest in the project? No, merely a massively busy workload that took me away from sunny Bedfordshire. As I get back into the world of tech and its happenings, Roy leads the show where we have a diverse (and somewhat more organized) set of topics to talk about.
I’ve been warned by Roy that the sound is poor this episode, however I hope you’ll forgive this after our two weeks away! This episode is entitled Mutual Assured Destruction as we see Google stepping up to the mark with its new patent purchases. The topics covered today:
* Motorola/Google deal
* First track of the night is “The One” by P.J Morgan
* Discussion about the United States Court of Appeals opening the door to invalidating more software patents & Software patents in the EU.
* Second track is “Can’t Stop” by Ozomatli
* Samsung/Apple situation in Europe
We also look at the Gimp and have a discussion about social networking, including an extra piece in regards to Diaspora. We end on the track “Thursday” by Orchid and Hound.
