Tonight we talk to Iain Thomson from The Register about how the Supreme Court approved changes that would give the FBI more power over when and where they can access our computers and everybody else's computers, everywhere. Ostensibly the changes are designed to help the FBI combat offshore botnets, but it's more nefarious than that. We also talk about Microsoft's decision to block Google from Cortana, and their new IFTTT clone called Flow. Next, we cover the SpaceX contract to launch GPS satellites for the military, and a new bedtime story app that lets parents use virtual reality to connect to their children. After that, Sam Machkovech from Ars Technica stops by to talk about Nintendo and Hatsune Miku. And finally, what happens when a weasel-like rodent meets a particle accelerator? Find out!
