LIVE Show 11-17-08 – i7, Martin Sargent for Yugo CEO and hackers

We also talked about Apple’s cores and AMD’s struggles. Someone came on the show concerned they were hacked. We talked about what an IP address does and what the person should do to be more secure. Finally, in hour #2 we found out that Jerry Yang, CEO of Yahoo! has decided to step down. We talked about who the successor should be. Larry Ellison from Oracle was suggested. I think the best person for the role is Martin Sargent. He has a lot of contacts and can make Yugo a young company again. All this and a lot more on the LIVE Show. Hour 1
