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”

Sudden breakthroughs are the results on small regular actions over time which slowly compound into something amazing. Save $10 per day and you’ll be able to retire a millionaire 40 years later. Start with a phone, improve upon it slowly every day and you’ll have breakthrough smart phones. That’s what we talk about today – the result of those simple actions compounded over time.
Today’s focus is on Google glass and bone vibration, Zillow’s home improvement app, Dell going private, Mailbox for iPhone, iWatch for Apple, Vine for adults, House of Cards on Netflix, EA’s Origin coming to Mac, and Apple’s iPhone India sales.
