Countdown to excitement! Every week Christina Warren, Brianna Wu and Simone de Rochefort have accelerated geek conversation. Tech, comics, movies, games and books, no galaxy is off limits! Hosted by Brianna Wu, Christina Warren, and Simone De Rochefort.
This week, Simone is off in LA being fabulous, so Bri and Christina take over the show. After some quick follow-up to last week’s show, Christina and Bri discuss the early responses to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Fold and an image of a black hole.
This week Christina joins Simone in New York for a boatload of technical problems (more than you even know), but also a discussion about Australia's legislation to criminalize social media platform owners for violent video content.
We're covering Jason Schreier's barn-burner of a story on Bioware's flawed Anthem development. Next up, details about the Apple Card have been dissected on TechCrunch and some hosts may have changed their opinions.
Nothing will stop Christina from talking about the Apple Event, not even an 8-hour time difference and the Atlantic Ocean. We cover Apple's credit card, Apple News+, the new Apple TV ideas and also Apple Arcade.
What a busy and marvelous week. Senator Warren made a policy proposal on Medium to break up companies that, like Amazon and Apple, make over 25 billion dollars and sell apps on platforms they control. You know we have things to say about that.
Brianna and Simone talk about the general state of living games. Then, Brianna chats with genuine futurist Amy Webb about her new book and the AI of the future. Finally, YouTube tackles, not for the first time, its problems with child exploitation.
This week the show is a bad sandwich. First up, awesome tech news: Huawei and Samsung's foldable phones, and the Hololens 2! Next, the rotten meat that is Facebook's content moderation working conditions.
Special guest Blake J. Harris joins us this episode. Blake is the author of The History of the Future: Oculus, Facebook, and the Revolution That Swept Virtual Reality, out now from HarperCollins. Lastly, Samsung has finally revealed the Fold.
v\Christina is in AUSTRALIA for Microsoft Ignite! Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos is all over the news and it's time for a serious discussion of cybersecurity and nudes. Next up, Apple's proposed Apple News paid tier seems like a bum deal for publishers!
