 This week on The Dan & David Show, we discuss the intersection of technology and terrorism in light of today's failed plot to blow up airplanes in the UK and US, AOL's privacy violation in publishing the search histories of more than 650,000 of its users and Apple's Leopard operating system tease and Mac Pro introduction. We also chat about Intel's Core Duo advantage over AMD with its Conroe chip; the need for multi-factor security, but without cumbersome card reader solutions; and the problems with WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage), which David calls Windows Disingenuous Advantage (be sure to check out Ed Bott's coverage of WGA, including an extensive slide show of the user experience).
