Episode 039: So Thin. Much Light. Very Fashion.

This week we discuss The Internet Of All The Things. By taking a look at some of the connected devices that already exist, we try to understand where this market is and how that might inform where it is headed. Are we talking about wearables, connected appliances, or are these really pieces of the same puzzle?

Episode 031: Beating A Dead Horace

We ponder if Microsoft made the wrong bet, Apple's PrimeSense aquisition, motion as a primary input method, the interrelation between Business and Product, and was Everpix just the wrong product?

Andrew also talks about #gojgo at the very end, and we urge you to support Stephen Hackett & his son’s hospital. Stephen has been a great friend of the bar and we feel this is an important thing to get behind. Give a little or give a lot, but be a hero.
