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!

EP75 - The moral dimension.

Its been a lovely hot day for once in the UK so be prepared for some nakedness at the start of the show! Matt kicks off with a story about OpenSSL being made optional in OpenSSH and both the lads agree it's very good, well it is! Will XP ever die? we hear about Microsoft issuing an emergency patch for Windows XP even though officially they no longer support it. Remember Pete saying Mozilla is evil? Well he gets a chance to say it again with this story about Mozilla and the adoption of DRM support. Oh and by the way the guy's name Pete tries to remember is Chris McAvoy. Why not drop him a line asking him where his morals are now? ;-)

Matt's Cat
If you're squeamish I'd look away now if I was you! Karou has started to bring little gifts home to brighten up the family home.

Hands up who remembers the much vaunted Ubuntu on Android? Well it's another project that's fallen to the cost cutting going on at Canonical Towers. Fancy an Orange? Yep the boys talk about the new Ubuntu Orange box but is it Ubuntu's? After clawing over the specifications Pete and Matt are not impressed with the costs or for that matter the supposed usage.

EP74 - Who's next?

Is there no end to Pete's fame? Pete brags about PBS America and one of his tweets. So there's yet another patent troll according to EFF and one that is targeting podcasts! The team are not worried as the troll only seem to be targeting shows with money and since Matt started dissing PayPal the kitty has bugger all in it now. Next up we have a story by that famous news outlet PandoDaily. Yeah we scratched our heads too for a bit. Apparently Indiegogo will no longer protect you from fraud but then a fool and his money is easily parted anyway. Mozilla appoints a Beard as the new CEO. He may not have a beard but having the name Beard is good enough for most geeks. Lets hope this one is squeaky clean? So has anyone heard of this Heartbleed thingy then? Pete and Matt reluctantly spare a few minutes to mull over the subject that everyone else has done to death by talking about some of the submits and fixes.
