Tech tAUk Reloaded #34: The Right To Be Forgotten

We always find it interesting (albeit sometimes dispiriting) when our tech headlines align with the national political scene. But this week we go one further, offering not just an international flair to our stories, but an interstellar one as well. You’ll have to listen in to find out.

Our tech headlines this week:

In our Bytes of the Week, Josh discusses the controversial ethics of creating CGI characters to replace deceased actors Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Paul Walker in movies they were in. And in advance of next week’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, Douglas acknowledges some default OS X apps that get under-recognized, some of which have some rather interesting stories: Automator, Calculator, Chess, Font Book, Image Capture, Preview, Stickies, and TextEdit.

Join us on Monday when we will be live-tweeting Tim Cook’s WWDC Keynote on @TechtAUk from 1-3 pm EDT, followed by our post-WWDC Keynote episode coming out next week!

Episode Duration: 1:13:26
On This Episode: Douglas Bell and Josh Feldman

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.
