In this episode we talk about alternatives to the Google services. We have no reason to not trust Google, but what happens if you want to explore other options.
While this topic has been covered, we have not covered it yet. We take our thirty minutes this week to talk about the EU law requiring search engines to remove search results in the “Right to Be Forgotten.”
We are obviously talking about I/O. Watch out for a thrown together show as Chaim is in California recording in the hotel room with a baby on his lap.
Just like pre WWDC, we talk about what is going to happen at Google I/O. Also like our pre WWDC, we couldn’t contain the show to just half hour. Instead of taking notes, we just winged it. You got thirty minutes of us trying to figure out what I/O is going to be this year.
First Up Updates:
Nothing… Big Fat nothing on truecrypt
We then tackle Google’s business model of making money through advertisements. They created Gmail to harvest data, but it is impressive that they created a chrome extension (End to End) to encrypt messages between people. Tom explains why this is good, how it works, and will Google get brownie points for this.
Seriously, nothing happened in the last week. We have a few stories, but nothing major. The show must go on, so we found a bunch of stories that hopefully will make for a good show.

Chaim had to interrupt his Passover Sedar to sign up for Google I/O. Why would he do that when he could just have waited until later that night? Well in a weird series of events, Chaim was trying to beat the algorithm and get ahead of others on the I/O lottery.
This topic came from a recent episode of ATP.fm where Marco, John, and Casey explain the best ways for doing this. There show is two hours, ours is thirty minutes. While they are all smarter than us, we break it down in a “more fun way.”
