Barack-PRISM

This week, Greg Davies from the BlendoveR podcast and frequent Geeks of Doom contributor (including the Tardisblend podcast) joins us to discuss how the National Security Agency is eavesdropping on our phone calls, e-mails, texts, and all online activity in the name of national security. Are we overreacting, or not acting enough? Also, the NSA may have our data, but they can never patent our DNA.

On this week’s show, we explore how Digg went from becoming king of social news to cashing out for half a million. Then we discuss the transition of one of Google’s top executives, Marissa Meyer, to becoming the new CEO of Yahoo, and whether it’s enough to save the flailing company.

But first, we return from San Diego Comic-Con, check out a couple of new videogames, invest in a new mobile data plan, and kickstart a game console. Then we discuss the hacking of Apple‘s in-app process, a massive password breach at Yahoo, Microsoft previews Office 2013, AT&T may charge for FaceTime, and Microsoft’s “stack ranking” management system.
