Tech tAUk Reloaded

Fresh off of Super Bowl weekend, we are back on Tech tAUk Reloaded with a return to our tech headlines-heavy episodes, and we successfully remind ourselves that yes, it is still possible for us to release an episode under an hour in length.

Our tech headlines this week:

Josh offers a “Be Patient… This Gets Confusing” segment, looking at a patent troll called Red Pine Point LLC, who patented the pre-release of movies on digital before they open in theaters. And Douglas shares a review of the car-sharing services Zipcar and Car2Go, which he has reviewed more extensively on his blog.

About Douglas Bell

I live in Washington, D.C., and work as a Broadcast Technician at WAMU 88.5 FM, the local NPR affiliate in the Washington metro area. My primary shift is to engineer the local feed of NPR’s Morning Edition, including local news and weather, long-form features and station breaks… and yes, the shift starts at 5 am, so I’ve got the whole quasi-nocturnal thing going on. I am also the Coordinating Producer for Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie, an independently-produced podcast and public radio program. Extracurricularly, I play cello, and participate in a church choir and a handbell choir. I enjoy discovering new places, and am constantly searching for the perfect cheeseburger. I am also known as a frequent teller of puns.
