Next week the FCC will vote to repeal the Open Internet Order (a.k.a. Net Neutrality). Matthew and I get into a hot debate on whether or not the FCC should and what would be the ideal outcome. It’s a great show with a ton of notes from the show below.
This week’s podcast was all about self driving and flying cars. For whatever reason Tesla, Waymo, Apple, Uber, and Kitty Hawk all felt the need to share updates. There’re all super cool (below) and it’s clear that many companies are getting closer to real products. We also touch on stock trading, social sharing and net neutrality. All the summaries are below.
There were lots of colors this week. White & Gold dresses. Red, White & Blue FCC decisions. 64 color watches and much more. It was good having Matthew back behind the microphone as we dove into this week’s top stories.
Matthew is in Disneyland participating in the Avengers Half Marathon this week.
We talk about the Flux 3D printer on Kickstarter, The ESA Rosetta Mission and the Philae successfully landing on a comet, the latest of the Net Neutrality debate, Microsoft’s focus on Windows, Office and Azure while letting things like .NET free, Google’s new tune, Sony’s new Internet TV and Sharp’s new display.
In this episode we Segway effortlessly to the opera side of the tech world: Lawsuits, purchases and people leaving. Yep, we’re talking about Pandora, Aereo, Net Neutrality, Google+ and Nokia.
More specifically we talk about: James’ experience on a Segway, Graphene going into mass production, Pandora surviving the music industry, the FCC’s weird definition of net neutrality, Aereo’s fight for survival, Google+’s fight for survival, Nokia’s lost fight for survival, Apple’s massive stock split, Weight Watcher’s purchase of Wello, and HBO GO on Amazon.
This week, not only is James missing, but we talk about Google invading your personal bubble and privacy, the failure of the Wii U, the end of Net Neutrality and the Niners Losing. It’s seriously heartbreaking. We try to pep it back up with the future of e-wallets, next gen RTS’s, the exciting horizon of biomed and my friend Brandon Hill guest Co-hosting.
