In This Episode: Infocom on Github. Amazon and Google kiss and make up. The SpaceX “anomaly”. Microsoft “loses control”?! And how to detect hidden surveillance cameras with your phone.
2001: A Space Odyssey
TEH 059: One Remote to Rule Them All
In This Episode: AI is now creating realistic people. Truly universal remotes. It’s now possible to get human help from Google (but yagotta pay — a little! — for it). It’s not amazing that an old computer works. Old and moldy: autonomous cars; New and exciting: autonomous …bicycles?!
TEH 053: The Mechanical Clock Enthusiast Hour
In This Episode: OK, not an hour on clocks, but some! Timepieces, new monitors, and streaming TV (oh my!) Plotters, pens, and Bandersnatch! And space is grabbing our attention lately, with Ultima Thule and the moon.
TEH 025: Help Me Obi Wan Kenobi, You’re Our Only Hope
In This Episode: Now everybody knows where you (and your kids!) are — an extra-concerning Breach of the Week for parents. Google slapping web sites that are “Not Secure” …even when they don’t need to be. Yanni, or Laurel (and how that reflects the blue/gold dress thing a few years back). And the first Holographic cell phone isn’t quite to “Princess Leah” level yet, but it’s a stepping stone in that direction.
