Tim and David get about ten minutes to chat before Wire and Skype let us down, so we continue with two solo segments. David discussed Formula E and Find my iPhone, while Tim looks at troubling news about Blu phones on Amazon and what we should do about privacy and data protection.
Okay, so I’m writing this shownote at 5AM, the day after I returned home from Macstock, as well as a six and a half hour drive, so honestly i don’t know what the show is about. I know Guy Serle and Tom Schmidt joined David and Tim, but beyond that, I don’t know. Recorded on the first two days of Macstock Expo.
