Dr Computer (Alex Neuman) is with us for a while this morning. Needless to say we touch on the latest madness in the form of Pokemon Go, Alex like myself downloaded the app, killed something and uninstalled it!
Also the relevance of Flash player anymore and a new rugged phone available from Alcatel.
I also played a piece of music by a young man called Sungha Jung, it is Gotya’s Someone that I used to know, but just played on the Ukulele… Enjoy.
