Twit.tv - The best and most entertaining site on the net for Technology News and insights Minimize


The TWiT.tv Story

It all started in 1998 with a small cable network called ZDTV, a channel dedicated to covering computers, the Internet, and personal technology. Many of the people behind this site worked on that network as hosts, reporters, or producers.

In 2004, ZDTV, then called TechTV, was sold and dismantled. Former TechTV hosts, Leo Laporte, Patrick Norton, Kevin Rose, and John C. Dvorak, and producers Robert Heron, David Prager, and Roger Chang went on to other jobs, but we stayed in touch, with each other, and with fans of the late TechTV. Those fans told us again and again how important TechTV had been in their lives, and how much they missed the channel. We missed working with each other, too.

On a rainy evening in January, 2005 a few of of us got together for dinner after spending the day covering Macworld Expo in San Francisco. Leo, who was working as a radio host, happened to have a microphone and recorder. He turned it on and recorded 20 minutes of idle chatter about the Expo and the tech world in general. He posted that recording on his web site. Within a few days tens of thousands of people had downloaded the recording. TechTV fans began clamoring for more. A few months later, TWiT was born.

Tech News Today 1791: The Digital Crown

Tech News Today (MP3)

Amazon is buying Whole Foods for 13.4 billion dollars. The deal caused a quick sell-off of grocery store and shopping center stocks on wall street. According to Amazon, Whole Foods will continue to operate stores under the Whole Foods Market brand and CEO John Mackay will remain at the helm.

Lyft says that someday, when it does shift over to self-driving cars instead of running a service with humans behind the wheel, those cars will be electric. And the electricity for those cars will come 100% from renewable power sources. The goal: to provide 1 billion rides per year using electric, self-driving cars by 2025. Lyft has partnered with NuTonomy, a self-driving startup, to deploy some autonomous electric cars in Boston by the end of the year.

Apple is getting more serious about original content. The company has hired two long-time Sony Pictures Television executives to lead its video programming division. The execs have been responsible for critical hits like "Breaking Bad," "Better Call Saul," and "The Crown."

We also talk about the verdict in the Philando Castille trial and how a disproportionate number of black people die at the hands of law enforcement across the United States. So far, technology doesn't seem to be providing a solution to this ongoing problem. Plus, a wrap-of of E3 and a smart suitcase that charges your phone and makes you look like a very stylish spy.

And as we know, its contents of a proposed alliance between Germany and Mexico helped push the U.S. into entering the great war.
