Tech Talk Roundtable 80 | Are VPN’s Healthy?

ChrisJamie and Michael discuss their personal learnings and articles of the week.

Articles of the Week


  1. Netflix is starting to block subscribers who access its service using VPN services and other tools that bypass geolocation restrictions. The changes, which may also affect legitimate users, have been requested by the movie studios who want full control over what people can see in their respective countries.
  2. With the explosion in wearable technologies such as fitness trackers and smart watches, is it time to get on the bandwagon and “quantify” yourself?
  3.

And it’s clear that Twitter and Facebook offer opportunities for positive reinforcement, online community and peer pressure to encourage healthier choices. But, despite a lot of innovation, just how to best harness social media is still a tricky challenge.
