This week’s episode brought to you by ScareHouse, Slice on Broadway, and Alex Kahrs Design & Media!
It may be a slow tech news week as we head into the big Apple announcement next week, but we can still talk some interesting things! Sorg, Katie, and Chilla are talking about:
- We’re getting into our Awesome Things of the Week with Katie sharing some insights on Comcast Xfinity’s “next episode” streaming update!
- We’re doing a comparison between Comcast Xfinity streaming and Netflix / Hulu.
- Sorg is getting the rundown from Katie about the commercial situation for Comcast Xfinity streaming.
- Chilla is sharing a Microsoft Office 365 update as his Awesome Thing of the Week.
- Sorg’s Awesome Thing of the Week might just be Guinness World Record worthy with a Battle Royal.
- Thanks Amanda for pointing out the Astrohaus Freewrite – a distraction free laptop to help you focus on writing.
- We talked about Samsung devices being used for Fortnite skins last week – well, this week, they’re asking you not to do that.
- YOBO lets you rate places with photos and emojis.
- Katie is excited to rate a place with a puke emoji or a poop emoji on YOBO.
- Chilla is asking for restaurants to provide a scannable code so we can scan nutrient information when things don’t come pre-packaged.
- We’re ushering in the QR code revival this week.
- Ooooh, what does this do?
- Acer has a game chair that looks almost like that one from Ready Player One – but not quite there yet.
- Skype is adding an update with call recording – only 10 years after podcasters initially asked for it.
- Google Chrome is getting a redesign.
- It seems like a light tech news week. Next week will make up for it with the Apple announcement!
- Katie is sharing some of the horrors that her iPhone has seen. You may want to take notes on what case she uses!
- Sorg is on the hunt for a couple of new Mac mini units.
- Katie has hacked social media for happiness.
