This is definitely not click bait, though we do start off talking about the most popular Buzzfeed headlines. Then we move onto the most popular passwords and all of Microsoft’s announcements: Windows 10, Cortano integration, Project Spartan, Xbox integration, the Surface Hub and the HoloLens. We finish up with Xiaomi’s ability to make cheap phones, the Myo’s impending release, NBC streaming the Super Bowl, Blackberry whining about nobody making apps for them and Google investing in SpaceX to bring the Internet via satellites.
Yo turns out to be useful, Google brings Photo Sphere to iOS, Matthew buys a PS4, Shakedown is a dumb app, Noke is a digital pad lock, Thalmic goes for the enterprise, Steve Ballmer is out of Microsoft, Samsung unveils the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook, Twitter starts showing other tweets in your timeline, Windows 9 is coming soon, Apple will help you find your car, Facebook and Pandora are the most popular smartphone apps, SpaceX blows up a rocket, the ice bucket challenges are getting crazy, and Google wants to keep their self-driving data private.
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.
Buying all the latest tech can get pretty expensive fast. Despite all our excitement for everything new coming out, we still encourage people, can companies, to practice fiscal responsibility.
Elon Musk shows off how SpaceX using Leap Motion, North Carolina University invents strong glue for solar panels, Microsoft buys Nokia, Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy Gear, we pine over Apple’s new iPhone, we try to guess which start up will be the next big thing (Spoiler: Oculus Rift), HDMI 2.0 for 3D 4K video transfer and Intel’s fiber optic breakthrough.
