EP80 - Doing it in a field.

The opening of the show Pete discovers he needs to learn every soap opera in the world as he tells Matt how work has been like an episode of Emmerdale and we also discover he has a 'thing' for girls in white stilettos! Matt tells us about the personal slaves he will have on his holiday and Pete rages with jealousy.

Microsoft considers changing the name of IE in the hope of being a kind of 'born again' browser. "Update Tuesday killed my machine." Microsoft released a windows 8 update that blue screens hundreds of machines. "Bye bye Stevie Bye bye" Steve Balmer finally bows out. Are you being scammed on Microsoft's app store? Pete dosen't seem to think so.

Is Munich about to move back to Microsoft? But with the announcement that Microsoft is to open an office in Munich Pete wonders if he smells a rat. In the same vein we hear about how Microsoft is lobbying the Chilean government to not use open source. Clearly there has been very little Linux news as the systemd argument erupts again. Oh, and by the way Linux has turned 23.

EP79 - Controlling soup.

Pete opens the show by telling Matt how he was propositioned on G+ after receiving a video call on his phone. "What's in a name?" XMBC announce they are changing their name to Kodi even though they don't own the domain name or twitter account, great move by the marketing department. Apparently it's all to do with not wanting to have the Xbox element anymore? Who cares?

Facebook maps anyone? Facebook it would seem is looking to employ a developer to develop its own OS and is seeking an individual with the skills of Linus Torvalds. The team asks where this is going and is this likely to become an alternative to Google's services only on a much smaller scale. Microsoft has that much money it can afford to lose Billions! Convinced that the MS Surface will be a success if they just lose enough money over it the question is, after losing $1.73 Billion so far is the Surface the new Zune?

City of London cops swoop on evil proxy provider offering illicit connections to 36 banned websites. The question is still "What crime has been committed?" Have you heard of photopedia because we haven't? The guys after looking on the Interwebs lament the loss of a Creative Commons Licensed service providing some quality stock photo's and ask the question "Why couldn't they sell them?"

EP78 - You've got stupid nipples.

Just when you thought it was safe to start listening to podcasts again Pete and Matt burst back onto the Interwebs with more mirth, insults, mayhem and just a hint of racism or as Pete likes to call it "Nationality stereotyping". Yes folks it's another episode where Matt has to break out the wet wipes as the conversations have a terrible toll on his windage.

First up Matt gives Pete a shoeing over his disgraceful lack of abiding by the Creative Commons code of conduct with regards the bumper music for EP77. So we start off talking about the EFF Open Router which is nice and cheap and as the title says 'Open' so you can tinker away till your hearts content. "You dead yet?" Pete tells us all about Endings a Yahoo Japan service that will snuff out all your web stuff and tell your friends you've kicked the bucket.

Microsoft redundancies. 18,000 people lose their job all of them mostly from Nokia. But what's this? 5,000 was in fact Microsoft employee's? Was this a way for MS to quietly shed some staff without affecting their share price too much? So the UK government is to adopt Open Standards for all of its documentation however Matt thinks it's a hollow victory and ponders whether the Microsoft support contract is up for renewal. One Windows for all. Yes Microsoft is actively pursuing a unified desktop experience across multiple devices. Hang on? Someone else thinks they can do that? Pete finally solves this problem by working out that once we all have a wrist watch device that does everything we will also have that elusive convergence.

GOG or to you and me Good Old Games is releasing a new (Or should that be old?) slew of games. Only trouble is by the time you'll here this the offer will be over! Oops. So according to Matt there's a new incentive out there that even Pete 'might' be able to contribute to. AppStream is an attempt to get descriptions written for cross platform applications using your Fedora account and github. It's all thought out pretty well, you'll be assigned a couple of apps, given a timeslot to get your write-up done and in return you'll get accreditation on the app AND, wait for it, a nice shiny Fedora badge. (But not one you can pin on your chest we think?)

EP77 - Bacon Tuesday.

Matt has a bag of sweets and he's not sharing! TDTRS would like to apologise for Matt's appalling bad manners (And feet) as he starts off the show with a Trebor drumstick chew stuck in his gob! First up HP to ditch MS. As you can imagine there's more to this than meets the eye and Pete and Matt see through this particular smoke and mirrors routine. Mozilla to sell $25.00 mobile phone in India. It goes without saying Pete cannot resist some comparisons to the Ubuntu phone, if and when it comes out.

So! There's more to the Brendan Eich story than we first thought? In this mahusive article we hear how Mozilla was already ganging up on Eich because basically, by the sound of it, nobody at Mozilla likes each other? (Listen out for Pete getting the hump with a couple of Mozilla staff.) Tsk! Everyone knows Facebook is the place to buy hardware from? Yep FB is producing a Linux based Open network switch. We like the idea but also note how everyone is now cottoning on to this idea have having your own operating system by putting your name on it. FBOS (Additional Official Facebook Link) Going back to the subject of mobile phones again, Nokia is finally releasing its first phone under Microsoft ownership and it's cheap! As you'd expect Pete has yet another little dig at Canonical nee Ubuntu but more importantly listen out for the show stopper march Microsoft has over some of the other phone suppliers, prepare to be dazzled!
