Welcome to the last show of 2012 and thanks for making Waves of Tech a regular part of your podcasting lives. This week on Episode 164 we discuss preserving and leaving a digital estate for your friends and families to remember you by and the importance of backing your data up. We wrap 2012 up with a review of an array of e-government activities ranging from big data centers, infrastructure investments, and social media expectations. Thanks as always for listening to Waves of Tech and we wish everyone the very best this holiday season.
We are happy to have Rick Limpert (host of Tech of Sports) on the show. We kick things off with a discussion on the energy-guzzling set-top boxes currently in use. Steve has found a cool little tech gadget utilizing Bluetooth to locate your misplaced personal items. Finally, we engage in a conversation on the industry and market of protective cases.
Cyber Monday has come and gone but the threats to online shoppers is still very evident. Steve outlines some helpful tips to protect yourself and your wallets during the holiday shopping season. In his discussion, Dave analyzes the use, storage, and collection of big data – why we keep it, why it is useful, why it’s maybe not needed, and what it means organizationally.
Steve provides us a with a rundown of his Veteran’s Day weekend experience and ties the conversation up with how tech made his weekend happen. Following that, why are we not voting on the Internet in the year 2012?
