May 24, 2014 — Dorothy Pomerantz, Daniel Eran Dilger and Rob Pegoraro

You’ll hear about the impact of the proposed AT&T/DirecTV merger from Dorothy Pomerantz of Forbes. Is this proposed deal good for consumers, or just a way for large companies to increase dominance?

Cutting-edge commentator Daniel Eran Dilger, of Roughly Drafted Magazine and AppleInsider, joins us to talk about the ongoing mobile platform wars, the essence of the deal between Apple and Google to call off their patent lawsuits against each other, and the prospects for the success of Microsoft’s new notebook replacement, the Surface 3.

Tech writer Rob Pegoraro, a columnist for USA Today and Yahoo!, offers his reactions to the mergers of Comcast and Time Warner, AT&T and DirecTV, and whether the latest net neutrality proposal from the FCC makes any sense. He’ll also talk about Apple’s “never mind” patent litigation settlement with Google, and about the “right to be forgotten,” involving Google and the European Union, and whether you can get a search engine to delete unfavorable links about you.
