Duncan McLeod and Craig Wilson are back with a news- and analysis-packed edition of TalkCentral, TechCentral’s business technology podcast. In this week’s show, we give our first impressions of Windows 8 (yes, we’ve installed the developer preview) and talk about the radical new user interface, the support for Arm processors, Microsoft’s chances in the tablet market, and much more.
Windows 8 wasn’t the only big news this week, of course. We also look at Vodacom’s public relations disaster over stated plans — later withdrawn — to throttle heavy users of its BlackBerry Internet Service. Has the issue caused reputational damage for Vodacom?
We also tackle the latest developments in the escalating battle between telecommunications operators and the National Consumer Commission and consider the implications of the rumoured acquisition of Business Connexion by French telecoms giant Orange.
