    Great show guys! Wish I could have been on there with ya.

    @ 58:17 on the show — I have to comment about Siri. I just love Siri and I dictate to her all the time to write texts and emails. It works so well I find that I almost never type anymore even when I’m in a public place like a bus or at work. I don’t think it’s a FAD or going away anytime soon (at least I hope not).

    Geez… you would rather have a keyboard? Sticking Luddites!

    I Heart Siri!

    Hey guys, Just wanted to add that Microsoft does not advertise their encryption of skydrive, so many security experts have presumed that most likely there is none. This is why there are 3rd party encryption tools such as this one I prefer duplicati, and use this which encrypts everything before I send it up to dropbox and skydrive. There are several of them, however, Cloudfogger, Duplicati, and Ciphercloud are the ones that immediately come to mind. It is a big mistake in my opinion that Microsoft does not offer encryption as part of their subscription services and I am sure this will change. I had to get involved in this discussion since i am a security nut.

    You know, I have been trying to do research on the type of encryption — if any or the type of security in place with SkyDrive is — other than a password for your account…and it’s like pulling teeth!
    I’ve contacted a few people at Microsoft, and they don’t return my inquiry or they point me to a link…and the link is only the SkyDrive page!
    SO frustrating. So, yeah… using a third party encryption tool is a great idea for any sensitive data you store in the Cloud….no matter what service you’re using.
