Tech-Rewind Episode 7: Hop Aboard The Social Media Band Wagon

By Tim Martin

Today in Tech-Rewind, I will talk about Youtube planning to let users charge rental fees for their content, is this a wise move, or will it cause people to stop watching their favorite videos if the author tries to charge for it?

I also have information on a replacement program for your iPod Touch or iPhones ear buds and will talk about that.  You can go here to find out if you qualify though. 

Google has updated Google Maps Street View to give you more information on local businesses when you hover your cursor over them.  Is this a good thing?  Listen to my opinion in the broadcast.

Amazon announces some Kindle updates including some interfacing with Facebook and Twitter, but don`t get excited, its not what you would expect.  THe update will be available at the end of May.

If you like our logo, make sure to check out Rick Childers Flickr page.  He is a digital photographer with hundreds of photos.  There is something there for everyone, go check it out at  Make sure to let him know you heard about him from the Tech-Rewind radio show!
