Ep. 14 – Insane Mode!

All-electric vehicles look (and sound) like waaaaay too much fun – and Jacob wants one right now!

Amazon is putting out a whole pile of new “Amazon Originals” pilots and we heartily recommend “Mad Dogs” – a re-interpretation of a BBC show of the same name. It was really good, and has a great cast; now, just give us more episodes, Amazon! Amazon also is dipping it toes into theatrical waters, and will be looking into releasing some movies in the theaters, with a goal of making a dozen a year (which, of course, will then come quickly to their Prime service).

Chris Pratt is rumored to be the next Indiana Jones; and they’ve finally set the all-female cast for a Ghostbusters reboot. Good idea(s)? Maybe. We like all of these actors, but we can’t help but worry what Hollywood might do to our beloved 80s icon movies.  Please, please, Hollywood – don’t eff things up!

Jeff is in love (lust?) with Microsoft’s new Hololens. And, rightfully so. It’s an amazing preview of technology that’s come out of Microsoft’s R&D labs and we’re ready for it to make it to our hot little fists, STAT!

Police are asking Waze to remove the “report police” feature to help ensure the “safety” of police. Yeah.  Right.

Google might start re-selling cell service and become the next big MVNO. Hurry, please!

The FCC quintuples the definition of broadband! It’s not a fix to all of our Internet woes, but it’s a good first step to maybe possibly hinting that they’ll bring an actual spine to the Title II talks that are coming up!

Jeff loves “As You Wish” – Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride –

Jacob loves Rostov’s Coffee – specifically a 50/50 blend of Colombian Excelso and Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.  Mmmmmmm, it’s the best cuppa he’s ever made at home (link: http://www.rostovs.com)
