    This Week in Tech 588: New Phone, Who Dis?

    Guests: Mike Elgan, Lauren Hockenson, Alex Wilhelm

Literally. Twitter's COO leaves - is Twitter in trouble? Snapchat's new Spectacles go on sale - if you can find them. The Unicode Consortium approves 56 new emojis.

    TWiT Episode 21 Taped Before a Live Audience


    Leo Laporte, Patrick Norton, Kevin Rose, Robert Heron, David Prager, and John C. Dvorak. Special Guests: Roger McGuinn of the Byrds, Arlo Rose of Konfabulator, Alex Lindsay from the Pixel Corps, Applescript product manager Sal Soghoian. Live from the Apple Store in downtown San Francisco. Thanks to our hosts, Apple Computer, and to all the folks who showed up and made us feel welcome. This is the audio edition. Kevin Rose and Keith Harrison from are working on the video version and will offer it later. Get the audio now at the usual places: Main feed - courtesy AOL Radio BitTorrent - four flavors, no waiting Topics:

    * Creative accuses Apple's iPod of patent violation.
    * What's the big Apple announcement Wednesday? Looks like an itunes phone, but is there more?
    * Creative ships the Neeon MP3 player with a Windows worm.
    * Is Creative #2 in the MP3 player market? They want 40% of the market by the end of 2005, but they're losing money right now.
    * Google boycott of cnet reaches week six.
    * Free Linspire at least till Sept. 6th. That might be more interesting news if there weren't already better free versions like Debian, Gentoo, etc.
    * Roger McGuinn brought us the Samson C01U USB Mic - it's just $80 and perfect for podcasting (or recording).
    * Roger's owns his own record company now... which means he actually makes money instead of the record companies.
    * Apple kills the Mac mini test drive in one day. Why?
    * Textamerica is offering a way for cell phone users in the wake of Katrina to tell loved ones they're ok.
    * We were mesmerized by the Katrina blog from Output Crystal.
    * Katrina: how is WiMAX going to work if there's no electricity?
    * The Associated Press is offering Internet access to a satellite image that covers most of New Orleans, detailed enough that viewers can zoom in to check on particular neighborhoods and streets.
    * Scott from Reseller Rattings is offering matching donations to Katrina to the Red Cross up to $10,000
    * Arlo Rose from Konfabulator joins us. It's now free from Yahoo!
    * Alex Lindsay from DV Garage and the Pixel Corps announced MacBreak the new IPTV show he's doing with Leo.
    * Who isn't? Kevin has systm (taping today's show, by the way).
    * And Patrick's doing a weekly IPTV show for Ziff-Davis. Episode 4 goes out LIVE 9PM EST September 6th... available for download in WMV that night, in other formats Wednesday. (Woohoo!)
    * Patrick holds up the $3 telephone VOiP headset Leo likes so much...
    * McGuinn plays the HD-7 - a seven string Martin he designed. Acoustic Guitar magazine is giving one away.
    * Listener Questions:
    * What's our biz model?
    * How do we create RSS feeds? Kevin's doing his in house... Feedburner does a good job of turning blogs into podcasts. Leo uses (and loves) Feeder. Jon of the Jon Hammond show uses .Mac and Rapid Weaver.
    * Why did Yahoo! go w/ $1.99 to host domains? It costs at least $4.00 to do the work w/ InterNIC... We think it's a loss leader to get you to buy other Yahoo! webhosting products.
    * Where is the PowerPC going after Apple? John says it's dead.
    * Gentoo Developer Chris notes crazy patents like the Tarzan yell and swing.
    * Ashley... thanks for the Doin' The TWiT theme!!!
    * Live next week at Noonan's in Larkspur Landing, CA.

    Leo Laporte


    For From Wikipedia: Leo Gordon Laporte (born November 29, 1956 in New York City, New York)[1] is an American technology broadcaster and author. A native of Providence, RI, he now lives in Petaluma, California with his second wife Jennifer and two children, Henry and Abby. Laporte currently owns and operates a netcast network, The name is derived from the network's award winning, flagship podcast This WEEK in TECH, or TWiT, which is hosted by Laporte along with a rotating panel of guests usually made up of several other former TechTV employees. This show remains one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes and other podcast subscription services, as evidenced by winning an award at the November 2005 Podcasting Expo in California for the year's best podcast and by its over 280,000 weekly downloads.
    Laporte prefers to call his shows netcasts, saying I've never liked the word podcast. It causes confusion ... people have told me that they can't listen to my shows because they 'don't own an iPod' ... I propose the word 'netcast.' It's a little clearer that these are broadcasts over the Internet. It's catchy and even kind of a pun.[14] With the addition of's live video feed, the shows are no longer audio-only.
    Some of his other netcasts include Security Now! with Steve Gibson, MacBreak and MacBreak Weekly, both hosted in a fashion similar to TWiT, The Daily Giz Wiz with Dick DeBartolo, Munchcast with Cammy Blackstone, Windows Weekly with Paul Thurrott, FLOSS Weekly, net@nite with Amber MacArthur, and Roz Rows The Pacific (launched June 3, 2008).
