This week we focus on Microsoft and their announcements at their Build Conference. In short: Continuum looks great, .NET aims to kill Java and Oracle, HoloLens to coming along just fine and Microsoft still doesn’t know how old you are.
We also chat about the Avengers (of course), the EM Drive, Facebook’s video chat feature, and Tesla’s home battery.
Here’s what we’ll do. You give us $10 to invest in Furlo Bros Inc. We’ll then turn that money into $20 – which is a 100% return. It’s virtually guaranteed. If you refer 4 friends to also invest in Furlo Bros Inc. We’ll double your return to $40. It’s totally Legit, just like Hong Kong’s MyCoin. We even predict that if we keep doubling every so often, we’ll become a $700 billion dollar company just like Apple.
Matthew is in Disneyland participating in the Avengers Half Marathon this week.
We talk about the Flux 3D printer on Kickstarter, The ESA Rosetta Mission and the Philae successfully landing on a comet, the latest of the Net Neutrality debate, Microsoft’s focus on Windows, Office and Azure while letting things like .NET free, Google’s new tune, Sony’s new Internet TV and Sharp’s new display.
Episode 53! One Year! Amazing! Google turns 14, Driverless cars get legalized in CA, Tesla secretly creates solar powered charging stations, printers print pictures of printers, the Clucks iPhone app gets advertising right, and smart phones are cheap to charge.
Also, MIT demos a mapping backpack (watch the video!), RIM keeps fighting with music videos, Apple apologizes for Maps, and Marvel creates an awesome second screen experience for Avengers.
Finally, we finish up with reflections about the past year and what we’re excited about in the next year. Thanks everyone for listening. We really appreciate it!
