The Briefing 9: For The Week Ending September 29, 2012

By on

This is The Briefing, a ten-minute-or-less podcast of tech news, for the week ending September 29, 2012. In this edition: Million of Android devices at risk from a security vulnerability that can wipe your phone remotely, Julian Assange listed as an enemy of the state in America and Iran wants to create their own internet.

Apologies for the slight choppiness and slight popping, my setup changed because I had to take my microphone with me to Sydney. Also, warm welcome to new listeners!

For those who missed out what The Briefing is, here’s a blog post explaining the show. Feel free to offer any suggestions, improvements and constructive criticism for our new show.
