- [00:03:12] In the news this week: Vizio get fined $2.2m for secretly collecting everything you watch on their TVs and lying about it, police use someone’s pacemaker data to help prove that they committed arson, Uber hire a NASA person and start talking about flying taxis, and Streetmap lose their appeal after suing Google for unfairly pushing their own map product
- [00:17:00] In honour of our special guest being @film_girl on Twitter, we’ve put together a list of “the good, the bad, and the ugly” in film: films that are really great, secretly great, and idiosyncratically terrible
- [00:39:30] Jeremy reviews the Pico Brew, a device for brewing your own beer easily without having to buy all the glassware and a forty foot mash tun
- [00:56:35] Is there actually a space for a successful “third player” in mobile phones? Microsoft, Ubuntu, Sailfish, Palm, RIM, all have foundered in pursuit of this market. And if there’s no space for it in phones, who will shift the market to some new _type_ of product, and what will that product be?
Also, Bad Voltage are returning to SCALE in Pasadena in March for a live show! With free food and an open bar, and the 80s nerd rocker band the Spazmatics, the show’s gonna be great. Buy your SCaLE tickets now!
