PC World Podcast 38: Twitter Attack, iPhone App Rejections, and Hot New Cameras
This week on the PC World Podcast, join editors Robert Strohmeyer, Tim Moynihan, Mark Sullivan, and Nick Mediati for a discussion of the hottest recent tech stories.
It was a tough week for Twitter and Facebook, as both services were the target of a distributed denial of service attack (DDoS). Listen to the gang discuss the implications of the social networking downtime, both for businesses and the extremely bored. (Since the podcast was recorded, reports have surfaced that the attacks may have been for political reasons.)
Apple's iPhone app-approval process still has everybody talking--even the FCC. The Ninjawords dictionary app was the latest victim of Apple's app-rejecting ways, and the resulting hubbub prompted a written response from Apple executive Phil Schiller. Plus, the recent Google Voice rejection debacle still has Strohmeyer scratching his head, and various G-men are looking into it.
And finally, it's been a big week for camera announcements, with many big-name manufacturers announcing new models for the fall and the holiday shopping season. Learn about the most exciting new announcements, from a camera/projector hybrid to an accessory that takes party pictures for you.
