This week in tech

It was a fairly good week for me in medialand. The ongoing Microsoft-Yahoo takeover brouhaha gave me a few opportunities to share my thoughts. Here's a quick rundown of some of the more notable places I appeared this week:
  • 580 CFRA New Talk Radio in Ottawa. I spoke with anchor Rob Snow about the Micro-hoo issue. click here to download the MP3.
  • BetaNews. Scott Fulton is exceptionally adept at covering the meta-story, the story behind the story. He often reaches out when big stories need a few layers peeled back. This week's was one of the most fun thus far. His piece, Carmi Levy: Yahoo's options, now that it appears to have some, published on Friday.
  • Unstrung. Editor Dan Brown interviewed me about Google's upcoming mobile initiative. Here's the resulting piece: Opera Goes for Android. Note to self: mobile browsers will be huge. Watch this space.
I chatted with Toronto radio host John Downs on Wednesday night. My appearances on AM640 are becoming more regular, and usually include some open line time as well. I don't have an MP3 or a stream of the show, but I'll post updates - see my Twitter link at the top of this page - before my next hit. Agence France-Presse also interviewed me on the Microsoft-Yahoo issue as well. I'm having trouble tracking links for that one down, but in the past, I've ended up in publications as far afield as Algeria and Iran. I always laugh at the Iran thing.

I'm planning a podcast for work later this week, and will post details as soon as things are firmed up.

Fun, no?

One more thing: I'm still mulling over the entries from last week's Caption This. I'll post the new entry later on Sunday, so I hope to see y'all then, too.
