June 29, 2013 — Jim Dalrymple, Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus, Gabriel Weinberg, and Rob Pegoraro

Commentator Jim Dalrymple, Editor in Chief of The Loop, discusses the decision of Barnes & Noble to stop building Nook tablets, the crazy rise and fall of Apple’s stock, and the double-standard tech and Wall Street analysts use when they cover Apple Inc.

Veteran tech author Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus admits defeat because OS 10.9 didn’t use the code name “Bobcat,” not made seriously of course. He’ll also offer his reaction to OS X Mavericks, and to the promise of the next Mac Pro, Apple’s tubular workstation, which is expected to be released some time this fall.

On the security front, Gabriel Weinberg, founder and CEO of DuckDuckGo.com, details his company’s “anonymous” search engine, which respects your privacy and doesn’t track your search requests.

Tech journalist Rob Pegoraro, who writes a weekly column for USA Today, reviews Republic Wireless, a prepaid cellular service that switches between Wi-Fi and a traditional wireless network to offer unlimited text, voice and data for $19 per month. He’ll also cover efforts by tech companies to push back against NSA surveillance and FISA gag orders, and the prospects for the next TV standard, 4K, or Ultra HD, to succeed in a highly saturated market.
