The Australian Government have seized this opportunity to not just roll out a contact tracing app with questionable optics this week, but also going HAM on the tech titans, as they seek to have our mainstream media compensated with payments from Google and Facebook for reusing their precious content.
All the while Zuckerberg tries to get into the e-commerce game in India and plays catchup to Zoom by announcing a new video conferencing service on Messenger.
We also discuss Apple’s potential pivot to ARM chipset architecture and chat about our favourite streaming shows we caught up with during the week.
As always we cover all angles using audio clips from different sources so you get everything you need to know, right here on the Naked Tech Podcast.
