Snap become a publicly traded camera company this week. It’s the largest IPO since Facebook and is based purely on expectations of future growth and advertisements. Matthew and I don’t totally get why they insist on calling themselves a camera company, but I guess that’s because we’re not cool.
A ton of other cool things happened this week as well. See below for the whole list.
Like pretty much every week, we start off talking about movies. Which, for the first time actually makes sense given current events.
We then talk about Disney’s Movies Anywhere app, Corephotonics’ dual camera breakthrough, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 phone & Gear watches, Steve Perlman’s 5G concept, Tesla’s Gigafactory, HTC’s botnet, Rolls-Royce’s automated barges, @N’s happy ending, the new Boeing Black, and finally Netflix’s Fitbit integration during their internal hackathon.
Computers are showing up all over the place. I’m not just talking about tablets and phones, but also unexpected places like HDMI cables. This is the future: computers everywhere. The only real question is going to be how much it costs us.
This week Andrew Mason gets fired from Group, Corning confirms iWatch, HP releases Sate 7, Firefox announces their phone OS, Matthew searches for 3D glasses, Netflix watches you, SpiderSense helps you feel what’s coming, iPhones HDMI is a computer.
We then round up the show with a bunch of really short headlines.
