Ep. 13 – Why’d it have to be snakes?

The guys agree, high resolution audio is the biggest hoodwink of the decade. Sure, you get all those extra bits and samples, but what good does it do you when you can’t hear the difference? You get the privilege of spending twice as much on music (or more) and you probably won’t every hear the difference. Save your money and get yourself a Spotify subscription – you’ll be happier in the end!

Jeff tells a story where he’s the biggest nerd in the room. Surprising or just par for the course?

Jacob rips the movie “Lucy” apart – what a horrible movie that seemed like it would be sooooooo good based on the trailers! To whom do you complain to get your hard-earned $5 back from a VOD fee when the movie is complete dreck? Amazon, you own him a refund!

The guys just can’t get enough drones! They talk about Skydio’s (http://skyd.io) novel approach to super-smart drone software.  It’s really some amazing stuff these ex-Googlers are doing.

Windows 10 is going to be a free upgrade and “The Interview” is already out on Netflix. We’re not sure which we’re more excited about.  Honestly, it’s probably “The Interview”.

New Hampshire is making a scratch-off lottery ticket that smells like bacon when you scratch it. Even the losing tickets smell like winners!

Finally, Jeff gets passionate about cars and the future of automation, assisted driving features, and the coming full autonomy. Will you be able to snooze or play Candy Crush to and from your daily commute in less than a decade? Jeff thinks all signs point to yes!

Jacob loves his Boveda humidification packs – if you need to regulate the humidity of an enclosed space (like a wonderful, spanish cedar humidor filled with puros) then look no further! http://www.boveda.com

Jeff loves his Big Skinny wallet. He can stuff it to the gills, and it stays slim and managable. http://www.bigskinny.net
