In This Episode: The four hosts get together in person to record this episode. We can’t tell you where we are, but Dick Cheney was our waiter. We talked on a wide variety of subjects, from voice recorders to Net Neutrality, satellite broadband, Google wanting to expand AMP web-wide, burger-flipping robots, Facebook fading, Nonograms, adding to the Internet Archive, and more.
In This Episode: We chat about changes in Google’s Chrome browser that users like, changes in Google Image Search that users hate, and Hyperloop and SpaceX and Starlink (oh my!) Plus: will postcards save Democracy from the Russians?
In This Episode: Amazon’s Go store in Seattle is open to the public, and you can take stuff and walk out. Facebook is going to try crowd-sourcing its news bias. A startup called Cargo is making it possible for rideshare drivers to put little vending machines in their cars. Fire TV can be frustrating if you want to watch YouTube since Amazon and Google remain in a feud. Google develops an AI voice that sounds real.
In This Episode: What happened in Hawaii (ballistic missiles incoming, oh my!) was more of a tech problem than human error. Changes in Facebook’s news feed (again?) The “Internet Sales Tax” goes back to court. And later this year, you won’t have to sign for credit card purchases anymore.
In This Episode: Should you follow Computerworld’s advice and “Make sure Windows Auto Update is turned off”? (No!) Patreon’s mighty back-pedaling: is it enough damage control, and what will non-techie creators do now? The new iMac Pro: a “$13,000+ computer”? Does Bitcoin actually use as much power as all of Denmark, or is something fishy about this? And: Did Facebook really “admit” that using Facebook is “bad for you”? (Not exactly….) Note we’re breaking for the holidays: back in early January!
In This Episode: Why it’s a bad idea to search Google to get to a web site, rather than just go to that web site. Amazon scoops up HALF of online “Black Friday” purchases — and revealed its top sellers. We weigh in on Net Neutrality. Another week, another big web site hack revealed. Or two. Guarding against credit card skimmers: there’s an app for that!
