Computer Talk Radio weekly show for the broadcast week starting January 26th, 2013. The guy with the square-rimmed glasses and the pocket protector, Benjamin Rockwell, opens with the news of the past week, including Atari, civic hacking, Apple, and more. Benjamin then goes on to talk about Cyberchondria, a legitimate issue where people become overwhelmed by the doom and gloom options while researching their medical problems, rather than embracing the simple likelihood that all may be OK. Steve Keske joins in to talk about temperature and other environment impacts on modern technology devices. Deb Shadovitz then joins to talk about a problem with Dropbox. Benjamin then covers the impact of software piracy on… open source software. Changing gears, Benjamin then covers how people are using the internet as a diversion due to the continuing economic problems. Benjamin then talks about keyboards and their impact on typing speed, before moving towards an encouragement for all of us to embrace technology, and consider moving into the field.
