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.”
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?

Even though we know who’s going to be president for the next four years or so, for episode 67 of inThirty we’re going to get political, political. On our more than two thirds to one hundred podcast extravaganza episode we examine privacy through the experiences of four public figures: General David Petraeus, Governor Mitt Romney, Representative Scott DesJarlais, and the comedian’s best friend, Representative Anthony Weiner. Each of these public servants was undone by his own misdeeds and uncovered by way of his use of digital communication. We undermine good taste and talk about urinals and affairs and other unsavory stuff and even ask whether the unfortunate downfalls of these four men might actually be for the public good.

On episode 60 of inThirty we investigate the disappearance of hundreds of iPhone 5 users – apparently the new Apple Maps app is to blame for sending them off course. With the help of special guest Stephen Hackett of 512Pixels.net, we dig into the new Maps in iOS 6 and figure out that while its Flyover feature can make you feel like Super Man, it leaves a lot of users longing for Google’s more down to earth Street View. Chaim and Harry take turns giving their take on turn by turn directions and Chaim reveals that he’s always on time since he uses Google Now on his Galaxy Nexus, and Harry says who needs transit directions in Maps on iOS 6, he’s memorized the rail schedules anyway. Our thanks to Stephen for lending some southern comfort to the debate.

Either don your tinfoil hat and ditch your smartphone or get comfortable sharing your personal thoughts with the engineer who’s in charge of the datacenter your texts and emails pass through. Guess which member of inThirty chooses which?
We discuss the impact of Carrier IQ and whether asking users to opt in to data collection is essential. We move on to discussing privacy more broadly before deciding to move out to a shack in the woods.
Don’t look over your shoulder, I think someone’s watching you.
