Ep. 76 – Updates are for Sissies!


Hey – you probably like the show if you’re reading this; so hows about you go and nominate us for a Podcast Award over at http://PodcastAwards.com – that’d be just swell!

Hot Topics…

  • Amazon releases a new, $290 Kindle.  Looks pretty nice, but that price tag… Ouch!
  • Sprint airs a commercial where they actually call T-Mobile customers “ghetto”.  Okay, we get that it’s a group of “real people” voicing their opinions, but who on earth thought it was a good idea to let that out to air?
  • Researchers have built a neural net to colorize monochrome photos and – for the most part – they’re amazing. Go check them out and see for yourself at http://www.engadget.com/2016/04/02/neural-net-colorizes-black-and-white-photos/
  • Initial pre-production reviews of Tesla’s Model 3 are out and Jeff is talking about them.  Surprisingly, he’s more bullish on the Chevy Bolt!
  • Moleskine is trying to bridge the digital divide with a new – very expensive –  product line of a digital ink pen (like, a real ink pen) and specially printed notebooks (which they seem to be un-ironically calling “tablets”) that work together to capture notes and transfer them to your digital device du jour (smartphone, tablet, etc.)
