Intro music: “I fought the troll” by Tom Smith. You can find more of his work here.
(Notes taken/modified slightly from the original TechRights show notes)
This latest episode was recorded around noon for a change.
It was arranged at short notice with time constraints and Roy being very slightly ill (speech/voice problems). Nonetheless we covered the news of the day/week by speaking about Nokia’s return to Linux in low-end phones, Chrome being flagged as a “virus” by Microsoft, then playing “Reality Check” by One Be Lo.
Moving on, we also spoke about Microsoft’s latest patent ‘deal’ with Samsung and mentioned Amazon’s tablet among other tablets, as well as their general role in today’s computing scene. “Quejas de un Bandoneonista” by Zona Tango was then played, we spoke about Diaspora and other social networks and finally we closed the show with “A secret search” by Papercutz.
