This week on The Dan & David Show, we begin with Apple's 30th anniversary, Steve Jobs, Apple Corps vs. Apple Computer, Apple vs. France, the growing iPod/iTunes monopoly and the insidious nature of Apple's DRM. Also on tap, the potential cancer-causing dangers of cell phone usage (see the SAR or specific absorption rate, chart, which shows the quantity of radio-frequency (RF) energy emitted by various cell phones). Former Massachusetts CIO Peter Quinn provides advice to the open source community: "Open source has an unprofessional appearance, and the community needs to be more business-savvy in order to start to make inroads in areas traditionally dominated by commercial software vendors." Also, Microsoft joins a key Open Document Format technical committee--what does it mean? This podcast 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). For more the topics covered during the show, search our blog.
