Sometimes a product requires a new look or feature. Sometimes the change is seen as a disruptive innovation and people love it. Sometimes it’s seen as a tone deaf redesign that inspire people to write petitions agains the change. This week we look into the latest changes from Snapchat and talk about it in the context of other changes like the Facebook timeline, Digg v4 and and iOS change. The show notes are below.
Like most technology, the really innovate ones tend to test the bounds of your privacy. This week is no different with the revelation that the NSA is watching you thought some slick tech. Don’t be scared, we got your back.
We also talk about Bell Lab’s new camera, the WiSee wi-fi sensor, Whistle for your pet, Feedly’s latest improvements, a Rickroll on Vine, and Google Glass privacy concerns.
It’s that time of year again… when it ends. So we’re back with a look at how our predictions of 2012 did, and with some new ones for 2013. It was such a long show that we split it into two parts. Look for the second half tomorrow.
This part deals with the past: The big events of 2012 and how our predictions did. The second part will look to the future.
