Happy birthday Matthew! Congrats on getting just a little bit older!
We kick off this week talking about Spiral’s location-based status updates, how the NSA killed Syria’s internet, Yo, Amazon’s competing Square card swiper, Samsung’s new Galaxy Alpha that looks very similar to Apple’s iPhone, females getting into computer science, turning off your read receipts, the FAA killing AirPooler, and Elio Motors cheap and efficient 3-wheel vehicles.
Matthew reviewed all the news that happened in 2013 and compare it to our predictions.
We discuss news about Apple, Facebook, Google, Blackberry, Microsoft, 4k TVs, Tesla, Dell, Twitter, Xbox, Play Station, Nintendo, Steam, SimCity and a little bit about security. We graded ourselves an A- for our predictions. In the 3rd hour of the show (yes!) we got down to our 2014 predictions. There will be a cut with just this part of the show.
Like most technology, the really innovate ones tend to test the bounds of your privacy. This week is no different with the revelation that the NSA is watching you thought some slick tech. Don’t be scared, we got your back.
We also talk about Bell Lab’s new camera, the WiSee wi-fi sensor, Whistle for your pet, Feedly’s latest improvements, a Rickroll on Vine, and Google Glass privacy concerns.
