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.
Matthew is PUMPED for the Apple Watch. He’s REALLY PUMPED! Though we did manage to talk about some other tech:
SimCity creators Maxis is no more, Stratos wants to be your all-in-one card in your wallet, content discovery is once again becoming and problem and Google, Facebook, and Pinterest want to solve it, Pebble and Huawei announced new watches, Scott Galloway gives a breakdown the the 4 horsemen, Sony and HTC are making virtual strides with their VR headsets, and graphic engine creators Unity, Unreal 4 and Source 2 are all going to be free.
Here’s what we’ll do. You give us $10 to invest in Furlo Bros Inc. We’ll then turn that money into $20 – which is a 100% return. It’s virtually guaranteed. If you refer 4 friends to also invest in Furlo Bros Inc. We’ll double your return to $40. It’s totally Legit, just like Hong Kong’s MyCoin. We even predict that if we keep doubling every so often, we’ll become a $700 billion dollar company just like Apple.
