161: The Oligarchy Of The Internet

“We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won’t.” – Tyler Durden

On that happy note, we talked about everything this week. The Giants are playing well, Matthew completed another Tough Mudder, IO is an app for finding good restaurants, Samsung got on the CSFC list for a little while, Apple Pay is causing problems for CurrentC, the Internet is ruled by an Oligarchy, the Avi-on Switch makes turning on lights easy, iPad sales are just fine, Google decides to remake emails Inbox again, Facebook clones Room Inc, Air New Zealand makes an epic flight safety video, Microsoft ditches the Nokia name, Procter & Gamble don’t see much growth from Duracell, AT&T remans predictably mean, Amazon sneaks in the Android app store on their their Fire devices, and the Hoverboard is real.
