back to article Mobiles susceptible to radio hacks

Deep inside your mobe is the “baseband chipset”, a slab of silicon that handles all radio communications. Baseband systems have plenty of processing grunt and, according to renowned Jailbreaker Eric "Musclenerd" McDonald, are deeply integrated with the rest of a mobe’s hardware.

Is there any decent podcast-to-text bot?

Generally I prefer reading to listening so I almost never get to these articles. I utterly understand that for many the reverse is true and that I can't generally expect anybody to go through the arseache of transcribing a recorded conversation, but maybe there's an automated system out there that does a usefully good job?

"I prefer reading to listening"

That's you and me both. Having to focus 30 minutes on people babbling is fantastically inefficient. If you get that presented as text you can probably flash read the entire content in under a minute, leaving you 29 minutes to do something else. About the only podcast I listen to is the Radio 4 Now Show comedy :).

Re: Is there an irritaing comments to podcast bot

Hardly a bellyache, a genuine question. I don't see why mailing the author is a useful notion: if he has a transcript he probably would have posted it with the article. And as I said I'm not looking to create work for anyone, nor am I ignoring that podcasts work for many readers (commuting, gym, boring meeting) - I'm just hoping for an option to read it.

But while we've got you on the line - what did you make of the podcast? Worth the 15 mins listen? Any arguments you'd like to raise? Something constructive perhaps, rather than just - you know - bellyaching?

Baseband and viruses

That ought to give oppressive regimes some ideas.

I'll bet the Chinese are getting lots of intelligence from all those iPhones they've built.
