Security 42 – Android Permissions

Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt have plagued us over the last week with an article that shows how bad Facebook’s messenger program is. However, nobody actually took a second to think why those permissions were being asked.

Remember android asks for permissions up front, while iOS asks at time of use.

Security 55 – Facebook Encrypts

While the title is misleading, it isn’t all that incorrect. First we tackle follow up on LastPass. We then talk about a coalition to SSL all the websites. We finish talking about how WhatsApp, a Facebook company, just went all encryption crazy.

inThirty 129 – Whats App Again

Nothing special here, just talking once again about WhatsApp, a scrappy little startup that just sold for 19 Billion, with a B, to Facebook.  What does that mean for the rest of us.  Will we have to figure out another way to communicate, or will it coexist with Facebook.

inThirty 81 – Social Sharing

SocialSharingIconsOn this episode the guys talk about how they like to social network.  Turns out the guys all truly hate the state of social networking to the point that they sound like the elders on the internet telling ‘them ‘youngins to get off their damn lawns.

Part 1: We talk about Falcon Pro’s Twitter API limiting.  We all agree that we care because users bring social interaction to Twitter.

Part 2: Next Chaim details the new Google+ oAuth offering.  Spoiler alert:  Chaim loves it, Harry says he rather iCloud (whatever that means).

Part 3: We go back into discussing what should be the new social network.  We talk about’s freemium model.

[Editor’s note: We should be back to normal in terms of posting.  New episodes should be out on Friday].

inThirty 75 – Search Yourself


In this week’s inThirty the guys ask the Facebook Graph Search for “All users who thinks that Chaimtime looks like Adam Sandler,” and “All users who have listened to inThirty.”

After we get the hysterics out of the way, we discuss is this natural language search, the search of the future?  Who does it right? Who does it best? Where is Apple in all of this?
