James and I couldn’t help but get into Pokemon Go this week with everyone else while we discuss the game, the community and the companies involved. Things got serious as we discussed the death of a shooting suspect in Dallas and the drone that killed him. We talked about the worlds most famous router (more interesting than it sounds) and a $4 dollar smartphone that might start a revolution. There was a weekly VR update brought to us by the Warriors and a First-Person drone race that looks like a ton of fun. We also talked Twitter, 5G cell service, Google’s iPhone app and wrap it up with some cathartic Snapchat bashing.
We kick of this week’s podcast with the 50 best gadgets on the last 100 years. Then we jump deep into Apple, Facebook/Instagram, Snapchat, Viv, and much more. Check out all the notes below for the details and links.
Ever wonder how recycling of old tech products work? This week we explore what it means for Apple to reclaim a ton of gold through recycling. Unfortunately, it’s not as glamorous as everyone wants, but it’s still pretty cool. We also talk about the future of buying groceries, DJI’s new drone, Magic Leap’s mystery product, virtual desktops, audio technology, and Snapchat’s reasonable reaction. Check at the notes and links below.
I’m back on the podcast! And what a week to be back. For starters, Elon Musk landed his rocket on a barge. How cool is that?! We’ve got all the other show note below. Enjoy!

Plus, we talking about Facebook cleaning house, Snapchat staying alive, the future of communication apps, Apple’s AR endeavors, Amazon’s new gift cards, Sony’s new company, AMD’s plan to open up, and the FCC proposed rules for cable boxes.
We round up all the coolest CES news in this episode. Despite James’ downer attitude last week, CES proves that the future is bright, smart, and automated. The show notes below contain a huge laundry list of all the different products Matthew looked into. And yes, we talk about every single one. Think of this show like CES: a whirlwind of stories that’ll be mostly forgotten in a month.
It’s season 6! And we’ve got some amazing predictions for you. We start with “Tier 1” companies like Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon & Microsoft. For each we talk about their products and other big tech related activities they’ll make. We think you’ll find it really helpful for thinking about how the year will shape up.
It’s time for our annual postdictions of 2015. James nails is and Matthew… We’ll… Let’s just say there’s room for improvement. We start off recapping the big stories of the year and then dive into how well we called things. Enjoy the show!
This week we talk about the news that happened during Thanksgiving. Perhaps the best part is Matthew’s explanation of the difference between Raspberry Pi and Arduino. We also talk about drones, ESPN, surveillance, and a few really good stories. Check out the show notes below of the details.
