Computer Talk Radio weekly show for the broadcast week starting November 23rd, 2013. Benjamin Rockwell, the nerd with the glasses, starts off with computer and tech news from the past week, including more problems with the government computing problems, Google Glasses spying, e-mail apnea, and more. Steve Keske joins Benjamin next to talk about 3D printing of firearms, and they explore the topic from a few different directions. Benjamin then answers a question from Jerry about 50 Gigabytes of data disappearing from his hard drive and reappearing, but he couldn’t find out where, and the possibility of a rootkit or a bot infection. Mehdi then asked Benjamin about finding programmers for “the next social networking tool” like Facebook or LinkedIn, and Benjamin had to say that it was going to be hard to find. Benjamin then answers questions for a few people about multiple monitors, and encourages everyone to consider expanding the size of their digital desktop. Then Micheal’s question about his dead laptop screen gets answered by Benjamin as well, as well as a few comments in regards to how we need to abandon old computers more readily rather than trying to fix expensive problems. Deb Shadovitz then joins up to talk about presenting from an AppleTV, and iPad, and some of the quirks with doing that. Benjamin closes by commenting on Yahoo’s and Google’s claims of their support for your privacy, and how he isn’t buying what the big guys are selling.
