    Not sure if you have the controls locked or something, but I couldn't rewind the audio to listen back a few minutes. I had been interrupted by someone talking to me, so when I came back I wanted to back up about 5 minutes and couldn't. Tried going directly to the Soundcloud page, but that had the same issue, and reloading the page just started out from the beginning and didn't allow me to fast-forward to where I was. So, I just stopped listening. If controls are disabled, I can understand a few reasons you might have done that, but in the grand scheme of things people like me will just not listen at all, which is too bad since I was interested in hearing the viewpoints.

    VirtnetX Holding Company has a market capitalization considerably less than the value of the proposed judgment against Apple. What would prevent Apple from BUYING VirtnetX outright, keeping ownership of whatever patents it wants, disbanding the company, and putting the rest of the patents in the public domain just to spite VirtnetX?

    Except, from the Apple statement now circulating:  "All four of VirnetX’s patents have been found invalid by the patent office."

    Transport is active. Might have been a weird caching glitch, but it's working fine for me on iOS and OS X. Try again?

    Hi,

    Thanks for another great podcast.

    I'd like to raise an issue I've been having with the podcasts going back a few weeks: there is a problem with the levels between each of the commentators. Some are very loud, while others are very quiet. It makes it quite difficult to listen in a car, or in a noisy environment.

    Would it be possible to apply some level matching and audio compression before uploading the podcast? Thank you.
