Ep. 44 – Ride that Hadoopty!



Ep44Banner

This week the guys are trying to get their hands around the size of the cloud. How big is it? How big are the biggest players in the game? Jacob does some digging to try to find out, and some of the numbers are mind boggling to be sure!

Jeff has finally sworn off of eBay. After his most recent transaction-gone-awry he’s done with the world’s largest flea-market and – at least according to Jacob – good riddance.

Did you know that if you have an iOS device you can put critical medical and contact information right on the lock screen? Information that might save your life in an emergency? Well, you can and the guys are talking about how!

Sriracha on the go? The company now makes official clip-and-go bottles that hold just under 2oz so you can get America’s favorite hot sauce on the go. And if you haven’t watched the Sriracha documentary on Netflix or Amazon Streaming yet, you really should go and check it out.

Is white-collar work at Amazon all it’s cracked up to be? There was a big NYTimes article out just a few weeks ago that make it sound more like a gulag than a 21st century tech utopia. But, honestly, it doesn’t sound all that different than other high-pressure Silicon Valley companies, either.  There’s no doubt that Amazon is great for customers, but is it great for employees too?

This week Jeff is loving AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead.

Jacob is grooving on his KMASHI 10,000mAh portable USB battery: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JM59JPG?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00
