Talknowledgy Episode #98: iPhone 5, fake sex site profiles, caught with pot, & more

The top story in this episode is the  largest tech story of the week – The iPhone 5 announcement. We take a look at the new features, upgrades, and how it stacks up to the competition. On the legal side, Apple may not be able to sell their new device in the US for long due to alleged infringement on Samsung’s and HTC’s patents. The phone, by the way, is due out September 21.

We also chat about people being caught behaving badly online. Law enforcement officials are using photo sharing sites, like Instagram, to track down and persecute people who post images of themselves using drugs. And in the “Creepy or Awesome?!” segment we share our thoughts about an Ottawa restaurant owner plead guilty to creating a fake sex profile site to get back at one of her customers for writing a bad online review of her restaurant.

We discuss anonymous comments – are they better than using Facebook for your comment system?

Phil drops into the Social Media Breakfast Ottawa to chat with Collin Douma, Global Digital Planning Director at BBDO New York, about how the digital age is putting an end to demographics. (Phil may have incorrectly identified Collin’s title in the podcast, and he regrets the error).

Finally, our viral video this week is courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel Live as he claims to have the first iPhone 5:

  1. It takes a great deal of discipline and careful planning.
    It is for this reason that we will consider it separately, apart from the general view
    of religion, giving it a category of its own. The metaphysical
    hub of the American southwest, maybe even the world.

  2. Few people keep modifying their telephone visuals
    every now and then. Most of the customers prefer downloading those
    that are available for free.

  3. Can you tell us more about this? I’d want to
    find out more details.

  4. Link exchange is nothing else except it is just placing the other person’s blog link on your page at proper place and other person will also do same in support of you.

  5. You need to take part in a contest for one of the highest
    quality websites on the internet. I’m going to highly recommend this web site!

  6. By offering Nadya Suleman $1 million to star in a porno move, Steven Hirsch gets Vivid Video in the headlines and, he hopes,
    money into his pockets through increased sales of his product.

    They feel celebrities, fueled with a sense of entitlement that can come with super
    stardom and its riches, just do what they
    want. Los Angeles, CA, where Dorothy Stratten was killed.
