AwesomeCast 288: MySpace Stalking

This week on AwesomeCast 288, we’re talking about awesome things in technology, including:

  • Chilla is kicking off the show with his Awesome Thing Of The Week – Tivo Skip.
  • Katie found something Chilla doesn’t own as her Awesome Thing Of The Week. Phone Soap to clean your phone.
  • AI to help with scheduling? Sorg is sharing his new personal assistant app as his Awesome Thing Of The Week.
  • How much is “too” much AI? We’re having some interesting discussion – from both sides of the argument.
  • This week’s App Of The Week is Gif Brewery and their version 3 update!
  • Thanks to Doug for the Facebook Live for Android fan submission.
  • Snapchat Live is a thing. They’re covering Super Tuesday. We suggest you check it out.
  • Ads in the middle of Snap Chat? Now we know how they’re monetizing, I guess.
  • Chilla is sharing some thoughts on hybrid sim.
  • We’re sharing some #Audi love for an ad filmed near our studio.
  • Slack wants to take down Skype and Hangout!
  • We’re integrating Trello and Slack for our operations. We’re finding you need to find what’s right for you.
  • Raspberry Pi 3 is now out. Sorg is still salivating (and he’s sharing his thoughts, too).
  • The next PS4 update will let you play games on PC or Mac.
  • We’re discussing the NEXT Pittsburgh article about female podcasters (like Katie).
  • Forget all the new social media – We’re (briefly) talking MySpace!
  • (And, we’re legit still discussing MySpace if you want to tune in.)
