fsck 49: Syrian Internet takedown

Akshay has a Windows Phone, and he seems to think it’s “better than the iPhone”, “beautiful” and “sturdy”!
This week, we talk about how the Syrian government completely shut down its country’s internet for about 2 days last week. We discuss what power governments have over Internet access, ways they can take it down and ways for people to stay online despite this. All this and more tech talk and news (including Kickstarter of the week VLC for the new Windows 8) on this week’s episode, with guest host Henry Davidge ’14.
