Old Tech News Retired

Old Tech News

Old Tech News is the audiobook edition of my tech writings from The Chicago Sun-Times and elsewhere. The show features news and reviews as fresh as last week as well as older writings that still contain plenty of relevance. It's all good, useful stuff, but the FDA says I can't sell this material as "fresh" so: "Old Tech News" it is.

Hosted by Andy Ihnatko.

5: The Law Is Hysterically Funny

January 21, 2013 at 10:15AM • 44 minutes • Wiki Entry

The law is hysterically funny. In this episode, I explain why the law thinks Gmail is like a rented warehouse space and Aereo.com, a great service that rebroadcasts live local network TV, isn't actually rebroadcasting anything at all. The fact that I seem to have accidentally set a legal theme for this episode doesn't stop me from expressing my cynical suspicions about Facebook Graph Search.
