For some unexplained reason, Nintendo decides to stop selling the super popular Classic NES. It defies all business logic. We also talk about pure software cameras that don’t actually use the picture you took for the final picture found on your phone. It’s an interesting discussion. These articles and many more below.
This episode focuses almost entirely on the #MadeByGoogle event. So naturally, we talk about all things tech: phones, platforms, home automation, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, exploding phones, wifi networks, and much more. It’s a great show. Check out all the show notes below.

This week, we start out talking about Pixels and Ant Man (don’t worry, no spoilers). Then we get into the meat of show where we talk about the PlayStation winning this generation’s console war, Zillow buying DotLoop to take on DocuSign, the next industrial revolution, Google admitting the Microsoft’s Office is actually pretty good, Ashley Madison’s hack, GoPro’s new video service, Apple’s quarterly results, NASA’s new earth, Vizio going public, Apple’s car plans (if any), how drones impact emergency situations, and drug testing eSport athletes.
By the way, we did have an alternate show title: “The integral of x cubed from 0 to 5.318296”
In classic Furlo Bros fashion, we wax philosophically about just how awesome the future is going to be. Here’s what we talked about in episode 74:
