Siri decides to interrupt a Commons statement, Samsung phones decide to randomly text your photos to people, and Fortnite cheaters get their just deserts. Then David and Tim get into their quasi-review of Solo, a Star Wars story and run out of time to talk WikiTrolling.
Tim and David discuss the Echo sharing private audio as well as Amazon working with law enforcement in facial recognition services and the rule of unintended consequences. Our WikiTrolling segment focuses on Adrian Chase and the Vigilante
Tim and David discuss Google Duplex and possible cheating the demonstration phone calls, an essay writing company using clueless YouTube celebrities to promote their cheating service, and an idiot using Testa’s self-driving mode.
Scheduling conflicts mean that neither Tim nor Owen can join David this week, so he is podcasting Solo! Topics include iPad management for kids, companies dropping social media, horrible scooter customers and a fabulous ChromeBook.
Apple makes another pitch to education and comes across looking out of touch. Facebook woes continue. On the positive, Tim and David look at Pac-Man as part of our WikiTrolling segment, and that devolves into Tim buying a Mayflash F100 fighting stick and a Sanwa arcade joystick for his RetroPie.
Tim and David can’t make it happen this week, so we reach back into the vault of content and pull out Geekiest Show Ever 6 – Star Wars. On this episodes Tim, David, Chad Perry, Guy Serle, and Neale monks discuss Star Wars in May 2009. Is this conversation still relevant? You decide.
Tim is off slaving away at work, so David is joined this week by the fabulous Owen Rubin. Toyota’s design direction, a hatchet job on the Internet of Things and the perils of software subscription are all dissected, debated and decided!
