TechBeat 7: Gadget porn

By

Join in the Malaysian tech podcast that brings together pundits and journalists from the country to talk about the biggest news and issues surrounding tech and media. This week, we have Chan Wern Shen, the editor for Malaysian tech forum Lowyat.net, who relates to us his crazy experience at CES 2011, while Harinder Singh from Tandemic brings to the pod his experience in the social media field.

Among the topics discussed are:

1) A round-up of what happened at CES 2011 in Las Vegas, including Microsoft’s announcements, the many tablet devices seen, and Motorola’s surprising resurgence in innovation.

2) Indonesia’s stand-off with Research in Motion (RIM) comes to a quick end, with RIM planning to comply with the Indonesian government’s requests to filter access to pornographic sites for BlackBerry customers in Indonesia.

3) The Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak engages with Malaysian Twitterers, encouraging them to ask him any question on the social network using #tanyanajib. Chaos ensues.

4) Soon after, Najib then warned of the consequences of unfettered access to the Internet, among them the decline of Asian values.

5) MySpace lets go of almost half its employees, and is shopping around for buyers. Will anyone take it?
