The concept of Big Brother is becoming a great possibility. However, instead of using computers to watch people, they’re just replacing them. Here’s what we talk about this week:
Thalmic Labs wants to turn your arms into controllers with the Myo, Tesla names the Model 3, IBM and Apple shake up the Monopoly board with an partnership, Microsoft announces layoffs where most are coming from Nokia, Foxconn is making Foxbots to replace humans, Nike invents the Vapor 360 Fielding Glove that doesn’t need to be broken in, the iPhone 5S is outselling Samsung’s Galaxy S5, PolicyGenius tries to take the headache out of finding insurance, and Amazon releases Kindle Unlimited.
Is that the Loch Ness Monster? Will Nike drop the FuelBand? Will the iPhone 6 costs an extra $100? We answer these questions, plus so much more.
Like for example, we talk about Nest Lab’s plans to manage a network of homes and charge the utilities for reducing their peak load. We also talk about Dropbox’s purchase of Loom and the future of photo management, the rumors of Nike killing the Fuelband and somehow partnering with Apple, Mark Zuckerberg unbundling Facebook, AOL’s history with AIM, and Amazon’s 3D phone.
