So… It turns out that this week was full of Apple news. We swiftly run through they Unifying Theory of products, and then get into specific thoughts on products. Matthew is particularly excited about Swift, and I don’t blame him.
Also listen for Adobe’s product name change and PlayStation’s moves to bring back some classic games. Check out the show notes below.
This week we talk about the news that happened during Thanksgiving. Perhaps the best part is Matthew’s explanation of the difference between Raspberry Pi and Arduino. We also talk about drones, ESPN, surveillance, and a few really good stories. Check out the show notes below of the details.
Matthew watches Back to the Future with a live orchestra. How cool is that?!
We then talk about Flipagram’s huge growth, Google Photo’s back-up problem on Android, Amazon Prime and Walmart’s cheap competition, New Horizon’s visit to Pluto, Colin Cowherd’s comment about radio going away, Adobe’s death march, Fitbit vs the GoPro, Kevin Rose’s opinion on Reddit, firing from drones, Tesla future Roadster, eSport athletes doping up, and the Lumos bike helmet that lights up.
Also, we’re still experimenting with a short show. See if you can find it. :-)
Congrats to Apple for making the Mac for 30 years. But what have you done for me lately?
This week we talk about Disney’s big data, Sam Matson’s Immersion heart monitor, Facebook’s response to Princeton’s research, Uber’s toppling of cabs, InDesign’s toppling of QuarkXPress, tech interview questions on Glassdoor, SK Telecomes 300gbps mobile data speeds, Google’s spammy Chrome extensions, how the iPod changed computing, AMC’s dislike of Google Glass, and how a mathematician hacked OKCupid.
Despite storm clouds facing Tesla, the automaker turned a profit for the first time. Congrats! Now hurry up and make the autopilot cars for under $30K.
Until then, we’ll get excited about RunKeeper’s Pebble app, Facebook and Google changing Intel’s CPU technology, Adobe’s shift to the cloud, Apple’s success in Japan, and the FAA potentially lifting electronic use bans during takeoff and landing.
Episode 40! How time flies! The big news this week decidedly comes from Google. They unveiled their new Nexus Tablet, the Nexus Q, Google Play improvements, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a Google Glass demo, Google+ events and Hangout integration.
We also talk about Microsoft buying Yammer, why the decided to make Magnesium cases, their rural broadband plan, and how they’ve offended OEMs like HP.
We also fit in news about Yelp check-ins on the iPhone, Woz’s support of Kim DotCom, Apple’s re-phrasing of there virus immunity, their new (horrible) podcasting app, Steve Job’s win against Flash, and Bob Mansfield retiring from Apple.
Finally, we finish with our weekly RIM update. It seems the mainstream media has picked up on their impending doom. Welcome to the party.
