Computer Talk Radio weekly show for the broadcast week starting October 20th, 2012. Benjamin Rockwell, the nerd with the new glasses prescription, opens with the latest news of computers and technology, including the changing of 4K to Ultra High Definition, Amazon.com remote wiping a users Kindle, TSA bodyscanners, and more. Benjamin continues to cover some of the aspects of Microsoft’s release of Windows 8, the new Surface Tablet, and notes how this may not be the great thing that everyone is looking for. Deb Shadovitz then joins in, and Benjamin and Deb discuss the latest Apple announcements, including the Apple iPad Mini, the Mac Mini, the Macbook refresh, iMac update, and more. Benny Rockwell joins in to discuss slacktivism, the concept of pressing “Like” on Facebook, as if you really are making a large difference in the world if you do it only. Benjamin closes out with Microsoft’s latest demand that everyone call the Surface a PC… not a tablet, or a laptop, but a PC… and his concern is for the Orwellian approach to controlling what we call things.
