tmMicrosoft told The Verge that between August 4th and August 29th customers in Canada, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the US will pay $100 less for Surface Pro. That's about a ten percent drop, much less than the 30% drop of the Surface RT. That has some suspecting this price drop may be less about saving sales and more about moving inventory in front of an expected Surface 2.http://www.theverge.com/2013/8/4/4587228/microsoft-surface-pro-price-cut

slSamsung is ready to unveil what it says is “the next Galaxy” in Berlin on September 4.

Samsung issued a statement saying it is "disappointed" by this veto. http://www.engadget.com/2013/08/03/us-government-vetos-itc-ban-on-some-atandt-compatible-iphones-and/

slLast friday, Eric Eoin Marques, a 28 year-old Dublin resident, was arrested on a warrant from the US on charges that he is, as an FBI agent told an Irish court, "the largest facilitator of child porn on the planet." The arrest coincides with the disappearance of a large number of "hidden services" hosted on Tor, the anonymizing encrypted network. Marques is alleged to be the founder of Freedom Hosting, a major hidden services hosting provider. He's been widely connected to the service—as well as the Tormail anonymized e-mail service and a Bitcoin exchange and escrow service called Onionbank—All services which are now offline.

tmA startup called Crossbar announced its version of RRAM (resistive random access memory) and claims 20 times faster write performance, 20 times less power consumption and 10 times more durability than NAND flash. A 1 TB RRAM module will be half the size of an equivalent NAND flash module. CEO George Minassian estimates RRAM will be cheaper than NAND though he wouldn't estimate a price. Instead of transistors RRAM uses three layers with a switch int he middle to determine 1 or 0. Chips can be made in existing factories but aren't expected in commercial products for 2-3 years.http://www.pcworld.com/article/2045926/startup-crossbar-pits-rram-against-dram-and-flash-storage.html

iaGM’s plan to turn the car into a smartphone on wheelshttp://gigaom.com/2013/08/03/gms-plan-to-turn-the-car-into-a-smartphone-on-wheels/

.

- Gigaom took a look at GM's plan to make a more connected car by having a chat with GM’s developer ecosystem director Nick Pudar
- GM is also removing the smartphone from the development equation, Pudar said, making it a mere connectivity pipe

- GM have one operating system instead of the multiple ones that power things like Chevy My Link and Cadillac cue
- GM will give developers access to the infotainment system along with access to telematics data with APIs
- This means developers can build apps apart from the car as well as within it: apps that can unlock a car’s doors with a touch of a button, tell you if someone is driving your car and where it’s going, coordinate arrival times between different vehicles and even adjust entertainment and air conditioning settings depending on who’s driving.
- The GM app store be curated. Each app must pass two specific guidelines:
It has to meet the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s guidelines for distracted driving and Every app will have to be up front about what information it collects from the vehicles, how it uses that info and what kind of access it gives to outside apps and services.
- GM cars will start coming with lte chips to connect to att staying with 2015 models

Q: by having all the app-platform baked into the car instead of being smartphone dependent, is GM making a mistake?

Hey TNT

In regards to the subject on nintendo's future and survival in the game industry, I think they'd be successful making their own gaming tablet. Just think, a "Wii Tab" running new and classic Nintendo games on their own OS, downloadable from their own App Store, and capable of streaming to your smart tv.

Side note: google could buy ouya and turn the nexus Q into a relevant game system.

Love the show
