Ep. 124 – Planned Obsolescence



This week on the show the guys are back, talking tech.  Did Jacob find and buy a new car? Did Jeff’s connection problems from last week get resolved? Find out on this week’s episode!

Todd has some crazy-interesting Excel facts.  Seriously, if you’re an Excel geek they’ll blow your mind.

Listener John writes in and shares his thoughts on Lenovo and the Superfish debacle from last year-ish with the guys.

After grousing about credit card security in the last episode, the guys find an article where Mastercard is trialing a credit card with a built-in fingerprint reader. If the tests go smoothly, potentially by the end of the year you’ll be able to get a Mastercard that will require your fingerprint physically on the card to authenticate a transaction. It’s probably not the magic bullet needed to prevent credit card fraud, but it should certainly help.

What are the 5 things Android does better than iOS? Todd found a list and the guys discuss them all.  And to be fair to iOS, there’s also a list of the 5 things that iOS does better than Android.  Which side do you fall on?
