How does your geography affect your outlook?  While the term Washington insider is not usually a compliment, Tom is joined by a capital tech insider with unique vantage point. Rob Pegoraro is right in the middle of the D.C. tech scene and will stop by to talk tech policy and more.  Find out what Rob and Tom will be covering about seeing tech from a D.C perspective on the SHOW PAGE.

We’ll also let you in on how you can purchase NASA patents for automated software code generation, how gummi bears can outsmart finger print scanners, how $105 can save you from being sued by Copyright-Trolls and a great advance in portable medical technology.

While we are still putting together our coverage from this year’s Interop in New York City that is just wrapping up, Tom will be on Sunday with Shashi Bellamkonda, Social Media Swami.  Shashi was at BlogWorld this week and is going to educate us on social media and customer service etiquette.  Find out more on the SHOW PAGE.

Our RSS readers are going overtime this week.  Apple’s announcements, New York City made a big announcement about its relationship with Microsoft along with plenty of new product hype with companies looking to take any holiday dollars people are looking to spend.  Speaking of, we are trying to get our hands on some gadgets to review and bring to you.  If you have any products you think we should give a spin before you do, let us know by emailing techtalk@imi-us.com or sending us a DM on Twitter @imitechtalk.

Here are some stories to keep you busy.  This post’s picture is circa 1900 Mulberry Street from Wikipedia.

We have a great live show on deck this week!  Phillip Rodokanakis joins Tom to scare the heck out of you just in time for Halloween.  We are talking Digital Forensics this week.  What kind of data can be recovered? Encrypted hard drives, deleted browsing history along with the piles and piles of information your smart phone and iPad is racking up on you.  To find out more, check out the SHOW PAGE.

So, people in glass houses should be careful what they do on a computer, but they should also have conferences.  And there is no better glass house than New York City’s Javits Center – the home of Interop New York 2010.   Along with coverage from the floor and sessions next week, we are also excited to have the show’s general manager Lenny Heymann call in to kick the conference off live on TechTalk!  Lenny will give an overview of the event and details about keynote speakers, sessions and some of the many exhibitors at this year’s event.

Along with the Interop Kick Off, our Week in Review has unicorn meat from the Wall Street Journal about a Verizon-ready iPhone, how your NYC subway ride is about to get more annoying and we’ll tell you all about a former water storage tank that was turned into a data center if we have the time. For the link to listen and the spot where the podcast will drop, head over to this week’s SHOW PAGE.

…Not in the philosophical sense, but in the genealogical one.  If you are interested in finding out, then this week’s show is for you.  Chuck Roberts joins Tom to tell us all about how to use your computer to build a family tree.  From general information on getting started to details about the best ways to organize what you find, this week’s show will give you the best of the digital and analog when tackling such a task. Find out more at the [SHOW PAGE].

Before the interview, our Week in Review will start and end with energy savings in data centers, move on through with smart traffic lights on to something else creepy about Facebook that may have slipped past you and your account settings.  And while we cover telecommunications, these fiber optics for the human nervous system from SMU and DARPA will look into the future of medical technology.
