Matthew is in shock that Buzzfeed broke an tech news story. He’s in even more shock with the amount of views they get. We then move on to talk about the Philips Hue Camera, TAG Heur’s partnership with Android and Intel, Facebook’s next move with Messenger, Alibaba’s selfie payment system, Nintendo’s partnership with DeNA, Sony’s potential PS4 streaming issues, Telsa’s self driving car, and Youtube’s cards.
This week represents week 1 of a 2 week series. In this part, we take a look back at 2014. What was the big news? How did we do on our predictions? Predictably, we did pretty well with Apple, Facebook and Samsung. Surprisingly, Google through us some curveballs. It’s a good show to listen to, and don’t forget to catch our predictions next week.
Disruption is hard to do with physical products. This week we talk about 2 companies – ISI Technology and Mink – that are trying to do just that.
This week we talk about Alibaba’s IPO, Apple potentially buying Beats, TechCrunch Disrupt winners: Vurb, the ISI Technology Heatworks Model 1 & Mink, Greg Steinhafel stepping down from Target, Facebook inspiring Oculus investments, KickSat satellite problem, Nintendo’s horrible Wii U sales, Narendra Modi’s holographic presentations, Facebook killing Poke and Camera, and the taxis competing with Uber and Lyft.
