Intro music: “I fought the troll” by Tom Smith. You can find more of his work here.
TechBytes is back for 2012, Rusty is here and with the whole crew ready to go, we bring to 50 minutes or so of auditory lovelyness.
Since this is a pre-Year 2 show, we are mostly taking a look back at 2011, its tech and news. In the show we look at:
Xbox 360 – If you don’t live in the states, the reality of its “popularity” is a very different picture. We take a look in particular at Australia where the sales figures show that 360 is being left behind by PS3. Great news for Sony, another chair going the journey for Microsoft.
Android, Iphone and source code – We discuss and I ask the question, since when has the mainstream consumer ever cared about source code, or even knows what the term means? Now that Android is established, are “geek advocates” really needed?
Unfair comparisons between Android and iPhone?
Linux on devices – A mention made of Raspberry Pi and its apparent beta success on ebay!
All this and more crammed into around 50 minutes!
We took the opportunity to listen to your views about what you would like in the show. The main points that stood out as far as I was concerned:
1. No music
2. Under 1hour in length
3. More diversity in the subjects with a focus on patent issues but a more general consideration given to tech also.
You can download the episode over on TechRights and as always, if you have any suggestions, want to be a guest or merely want to abuse us, feel free to email, comment, rant or shake fist at sky.
