Each week, Gene speaks directly to the industry's movers and shakers, including corporate leaders, industry analysts, and regular panels that feature the most respected journalists who cover personal technology.
On this week's all-star episode, we present commentator and columnist Rob Pegoraro <http://robpegoraro.com/>, who writes for USA Today, Yahoo Tech and Wirecutter, who discusses, at length, the new wireless data plans from AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, and why "unlimited" data plans are actually not quite "unlimited." He'll also talk about the issues involved with municipal broadband, why "everybody is getting hacked," and the Microsoft's Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Now that it's no longer free, is it worth the upgrade price? What about Microsoft's shady efforts to force people to upgrade when it was available at no cost to customers?
You'll also hear from Jeff Gamet, Managing Editor for The Mac Observer <http://www.macobserver.com/>. In a special pop culture segment, Gene and Jeff will discuss the plans for a musical episode of two of The CW's super hero shows, "Supergirl" and "The Flash." Jeff will continue to express his concerns about the different DC Comics "universes" on TV and the movies. This is where there are different actors playing such characters as Superman and The Flash. Jeff will also talk about Uber's project to establish a self-driving ride-sharing system and the new efforts to fight spam robocalls by Apple, Google and the FCC. download the show
