Radio ABC – FutureTech Segment – 19 March 2010

March 19, 2010

Beam me up to your social network – William Shatners sci fi network started our on air discussion this week between Adelaine, Phil of ABC Radio Australia’s Today programme and Ryan Egan of Tech Stream and me.

The conversation then moved on to ‘screenagers’, paypal and bump unite to give us a mobile app that let’s you pay anyone nearby by waving your mobile at them, how to predict earthquakes using your laptop and iphone, before joining Hong Kong Radio HK3 to talk about Australia’s rising social media usage, cyberbullying and iPad pre orders.

All this, terrific conversation, laughs, iphone envy and the word of the week competition are all in this weeks show.
