TM 46: Ex-Tomb Raider boss opens UK schools, SwiftKey to power Xbox?
This podcast is an episode of Tech's Message, a weekly audio download from London-based technology journalists Nate Lanxon and Ian Morris. Hear a discussion based on the week's most interesting UK technology news, and other irreverent takes on tech issues deemed important for British ears to hear.
THIS WEEK ON TECH'S MESSAGE Nate is joined by CNET.com's Andrew Hoyle. They discuss the news that Microsoft has bought UK-based startup SwiftKey for a reported $250 million. What might this mean for Xbox and Windows, they wonder? Plus, Europe's top court is looking into whether linking to any webpage or online content without permission could be in breach of the law. Yes, linking. Against the law. One to watch. Plus, Ian Livingstone of Eidos and Tomb Raider fame, is opening two free schools in the UK dedicated to science, technology, engineering, arts and maths. This is great news for the next generation of STEAM students. All that, plus a major reason EA isn't being terrible will become clear this week.
