Computer Talk Radio weekly show for the broadcast week starting July 28th, 2013. Benjamin Rockwell, our nerd and friend, begins the show with the news of the week like the latest smartphone usage stats, the NTSB wanting us to have cars that will talk (via tech) to each other (and his skepticism regarding that usage), the Chipotle Twitter hack, and more. Benjamin then covers the big issue about “do you have anything to hide”, and examines how even if we don’t have anything to hide (but we do), that we should defend those that do have something to hide. Someday, Benjamin fears, we may have things that we do want to hide, things that we may not think are important now, but could become important. Deb Shadovitz then joins up with Michael Wesier with Accell Products about how important it is to use surge suppressors, and what to look for when buying one. Then Rahul contacted Benjamin in regards to his cable company, versus set top boxes, and how to decide. Steve Keske joins in to talk about License Plate Readers, and how Law Enforcement agencies are using these to track car movements, and linking the database information to other systems. Benjamin then closes by noting that penmanship is on the decline, especially with the changes in computer usage.
