Week three without James, we’re almost through this people. Helping me hold down the fort this week is Brian Nelson in Los Alamos New Mexico. In this explosive episode, we heat things up while talking about our visit to the Trinity Bomb test site. Microsoft made some really exciting announcements and Tesla took an amazing amount of preorders. We give you the best (and worst) April Fools pranks on the internet, we explain how you’ll end up with a smart fridge and blow your mind with some expert Super Mario World play. We Finally wrap it up with some dating advice.
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.
