speaking_in_tech Greg Knieriemen podcast enterprise

It's another episode of The Register's best and only podcast, bringing you everything the industry is saying about the latest enterprise and consumer tech – from the Silicon Valley of Power and the vast, cool data centres of Texas to the strange, giant watercooler that is the interwebs.

Stop what you're doing, get yourself a paper cup and join us for this week's episode with your host Greg Knieriemen and special guests Mark Twomey (aka Storagezilla) of EMC and Aaron Delp of Citrix and The Cloudcast.net.

They begin with a discussion about what we can expect from the remake of Carl Sagan's Cosmos (see the trailer below) with popular astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson taking Sagan's spot.

The discussion soon moves to the inevitable smackdown between the bad boys of OpenStack... Is it WAR? They also chat about the death of Kindle and the would-be Apple TV killer, Google's super-dongle Chromecast.

This week we discuss...

  • The return of Cosmos
  • OpenStack API war breaks out
  • Cloud conspiracy theories
  • Clouderati circle jerk
  • Citrix, CloudStack and opensource development
  • Chromecast puts a dagger in Apple TV
  • App ecosystem around Chromecast to dominate TV's
  • Nexus 7 attractive but is the tablet market saturated?
  • Microsoft Surface on ARM is rough... but it runs Office
  • Amazon Kindle suicide
  • Clash of the titans over Dell
  • For Dell, it's personal. For Icahn, it's just a game
