Ep. 18 – Glue This Podcast to Your Ears!

In a 3-2 decision, the FCC overrules state laws barring municipality broadband in two cities! This is a very good thing for consumers. Sure, it’s not the whole country yet, but it’s a HUGE step in the right direction. Mad love, FCC. Mad love!

Toyota officially drops support for Apple’s Carplay in all Toyota vehicles. What?! Does this spell doom for the tech industry’s push into your dashboard? And, what the heck, Toyota? Do you really think you know better how to make a car infotainment system? Better than Google? Better than Apple?! We think not!

Twillio buys Authy – the 2-factor authentication tool we both use and love. Looks like Twillio might be on a hot streak, they’ve raised a ton of VC funding, and their CEO has gone from broke-startup-founder to half-billionaire in almost no time at all.  Please Twillio, don’t eff Authy up!  We love it too much!

Hey, wanna glue something to something else but aren’t sure what you need? You need ThisToThat.com – yeah, pick a this and pick a that and it’ll tell you the best possible way to bond those two items together. Freebie double bonus, if you the kind of savvy world traveler that does a lot of cyanoacrylate gluing, you need to pick up some Zip Kicker. What’s that you ask? It’s an accelerant that instantly cures and sets cyanoacrylate-based glues. You know, like Crazy Glue? Trust us, we’re experts.

Got a kid? They probably want (or have a smartphone). What’s the ever-cautious parent to do to keep tabs on them? The guys duke it out and Jacob has to concede that Jeff probably knows best (that jerk!).
