Tech News and Commentary
In this hour by Dave and the Into Tomorrow team will be talking about modern day Pentiums and how they compare to Core i processors, DVRs for OTA TV, new Facebook likes algorithms, the Windows 10 launch and what to expect with guest Karl Volkman, Chief Technical Officer of SRV Network, how to stay safe on shared internet connections, and whether or not compressed audio files can be uncompressed again.
Chris took us back to some of the most interesting tech history events that took place on this week in years past.
Into Tomorrow cable-cutting listener Cal in Bowling Green, Kentucky listens to the podcast and asked about good DVRs for over the air TV. We recommended several to him.
Kris in Redwood City, California listens on 1590 KLIV and asked about Facebook’s ever evolving likes algorithms. He told him why he should count himself lucky.
On a recent show we had asked how it is that we haven’t missed an IFA since our first one, yet more years have gone by than shows that we’ve been at. Congratulations to Dean in Camas, Washington and Larry in Metamora, Michigan they will both be getting a prize for solving the riddle.
Listener Jan lives in a rural area and tries to save some precious satellite internet bytes by doing some browsing at her local library. We gave her some tips about safety on shared connections.
Randy in Nashville, Tennessee listens on SuperTalk WTN 99.7 and he needs to covert compressed audio files to PCM. We answer his question and explain the difference between compressed and uncompressed audio.
