Four Stories About Google

English: Gmail logo

ARStechnica is reporting about “Project Tango” which gives your cell phone Kinect-style ability.  We go on for a good while about all the possible ramifications from this type of tech.

Tech Net News and Opinion is recorded live with listener participation every Monday evening from 8-10 pm ESt with the exception of the second Monday of each month and federal holidays.  If you would like to take part, get into #indienation on the geekshed.net IRC network when we are scheduled for air time.  We would love to have you on the show with us!
