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.
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.
