Listen to Dan and David spar on tech

Summary:In the first of what we hope to be many episodes of The Dan and David Show, Dan and David kill 11 1/2 minutes arguing about everything that's on the tech front burner as the sultry summer winds down.

In the first of what we hope to be many episodes of The Dan and David Show (feel free to suggest a new name), Dan and I kill 11 1/2 minutes arguing about everything that's on the tech front burner as the sultry summer (in this part of the world) winds down--from George Dubbya's signing of a bill that turns cybersecurity into a law for power plants and software patent commons and other legal straight jackets to on demand CRM wannabe SAP and salesforce.com. On the good guys/bad guys segment, Microsoft gets kudos for combatting spam on the legal front (using spammers' money against them), but still deserves a spanking for the breakdown of talks over how to restructure the Internet's e-mail protocols. Dan also gives me 60 seconds to rant about how Intervideo sued Dell over a ridiculous patent, and we make some some predictions, most of which will probably never come true.  All this and more in a little more than ten minutes of gripping audio can be delivered directly to your desktop or MP3 player if you're subscribed to our podcasts (See ZDNet’s podcasts: How to tune in), or if you want you can just download the MP3.  And please, let us know what you think.
