Nerdery Tech Evangalist Ryan Carlson, a.k.a. The Nerd on K-TWIN’s Cane & Co., discussed how to share photos online without sharing GPS coordinates of the people and places in your photos (social media is a surprisingly safe bet), as well as Twitter teaming up with Nielsen to rate TV shows according to viewer chatter. Plus, speculation on eased restrictions on in-flight mobile devices, and news of a big bad online drug bust on Silk Road.

Now that iPhone 5s is out, The Nerdery’s Ryan Carlson went on K-TWIN’s Cane & Co. to discuss the fuss of it all – and whether it’s worth waiting in line for.  Perhaps not coincidentally, they also discussed the well-underway Blackberry deathwatch, and YouTube’s new offline-mode feature. Dear listeners, please note that Cane and Ryan only talk about their hair (looking admittedly great, respectively) just briefly at the beginning of the segment, and that Rena mostly let our hair heroes talk amongst themselves.
