Tech Talk Podcast: Revolution
By THE NEW YORK TIMES

This week’s Bits: Tech Talk podcast takes a look at how technology is being used to press both for and against social and political change. Bettina Edelstein speaks to Matt Richtel, a New York Times technology reporter, about the impact and implications of the Internet shutdown in Egypt. And J.D. Biersdorfer speaks with David Perry, global director of education for the security firm Trend Micro, about how technology can be deployed as a weapon.

Also on this week’s show, Don Donofrio of the Times News Technology group, returns to discuss ways of sharing your smartphone photos online.

Ms. Biersdorfer’s news roundup includes a new Microsoft security warning for users of Internet Explorer; problems with Intel’s Sandy Bridge chips; the new LG Optimus 3D smartphone and the LG Optimus 3D smartphone (no goofy glasses needed). Her tech tip of the week is about a feature of the Chrome browser called pin tabs that lets you streamline the browser by using icons to identify your tabs.
