We started by letting you know that our building in Portland, Oregon was undergoing Fire Drill/Alarm testing.  It became a constant theme throughout the show.  You'll hear.

The major topic of the day however, was Data Storage and how safe or unsafe it is.  Ashley Madison experienced a major leak of data at the hands of a hacker group.  While we may not all have sympathy for the intent of the users, there are real concerns for all of us here!

From there we talked about Google and their new approach to Routers.  It's a tech item that a lot of people overlook, but it's an area that is in need of some evolution.  Their approach with OnHub may be headed in an innovative direction, but is it something that is good for consumers?  Or is it something that's just unnecessary or unneeded?

All along the way we take questions and comments from live Periscope viewers, as well!
