We lead off with a discussion of California’s first statewide Amber Alert system that was activated last week – what does this means, how effective was it, did it help. We finish the show with an interesting discussion about big box retailers keeping tabs on the return habits of the consumer – is this a privacy concern, how much is being tracked, how to get information.
Discussion about Jeff Bezos’ purchase of The Washington Post and what they may mean for the company, traditional print media, and the digital presence of the paper. Dave retells a personal account of experiencing breaking news and how that event developed through social media and real eyewitnesses.

The battle will soon be set between cable companies and TV networks. Find out the details and join the conversation as we breakdown the proposed legislation by Senator McCain.
This week we are joined with two of our favorite people – Rick Limpert and John Hanlon. We can’t quite remember the last time we had a panel of hosts to discuss a topic! In this episode, John provides a solid review of the goods and bads of the Samsung Galaxy S4. That review dovetails into a smartphone showdown where the hosts speak their minds about the superiority of Apple, Android, Windows Phone, or Blackberry.
