Corporate Training

Tonight on GeekNights, since Rym has training all week, we talk about training in general. But first, Google's My Tracks is better than most alternatives, automobile black boxes may soon be mandatory, and Apple is ready to smash a patent troll.

Memory

Tonight on GeekNights, tired of complaints about "wasted" RAM, we talk about memory. Fiddleheads aside, we consider whether wireless really is that important to business, and the pwning of Chrome.

SNMP

Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss SNMP: the Simple Network Management Protocol, and how you can trivially use it to monitor Linux servers. In the news, Adobe moves to a subscription model and drops Soundbooth (thankfully), human brains are more malleable than one might think, and Google is liable in Italy for defamation from search results.

Egypt vs. The Internet

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the largely successful attempt of the Egyptian government to cut off the Internet. In the news, complaints about alleged increased spam on Google are largely unfounded, and the Golden Gate Bridge is going all-digital in its toll collection.

The Death of the Personal Computer

Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss the death of the personal computer. In the news, we participated yesterday in No Pants Day 2011, and CES happened. Also don't forget that we'll be at MAGFest 9 this weekend!

Tech Predictions 2010-2011

Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss our major technology predictions for the coming year, particularly regarding the iPhone and non-AT&T carriers, the future of the media distribution marketplace, and the slow demise of X Windows. In the news, Stuxnet may have been the cause of real-world damage (though this wouldn't be the first time such a thing happened), and Putin is pushing Linux.
