Podcast: Bitcoins bite the dust? Uh-oh, Aereo and Austin’s fiber

crash

Whether you think they are a Ponzi scheme or the future of money, Bitcoins were all over the news this week as the value of the digital currency crashed. Hard. We get to the bottom of what Bitcoins are and what this grand financial experiment is all about. Speaking of crash, Aereo would like to crash the traditional broadcast TV party with a new way to get over-the-air TV and the big networks are none too happy about it. And speaking of happy, Stacey Higginbotham is ecstatic that Google will soon be putting her on an all fiber (to the home) diet.
