TalkCentral: Ep 202 - 'Toby-Wan Kenobi' - TechCentral

TalkCentral: Ep 202 – ‘Toby-Wan Kenobi’

Stuff magazine publisher and editor-in-chief Toby Shapshak joins Duncan McLeod and Regardt van der Berg to wrap up the biggest technology stories of 2017.

Stories covered include bitcoin and cryptocurrencies; privacy and security; how Russian propagandists stole Twitter and misogynists hijacked Twitter; the death of privacy and security; the wholesale open-access network; drones; and fibre-to-the-home in South Africa.

The panellists talk about what they think were the most important technology product developments in 2017, too, and Toby has an R2D2 robot in the studio — which promptly attacked Regardt’s laptop.

Happy holidays, everyone. TalkCentral will return in 2018.
