Schmidty is back for a podcast host trifecta and we are dealing with an overload of Google news. I guess it makes sense, since they sort of flooded the new cycle but . . . oh hey, look at that; Zohner uses LinkedIn. And Netflix is trolling us? What is going on here!?
We are running on no sleep at all and so this episode might be a little . . . weird. It’s not just us, though, as the news this week has Google forgetting how to internet, Transformers pulling freight on American freeways, and people using . . . things to unlock their phones. Yeah, this was a weird week.
Agent Carter needs to find a new job. Yes, while Peggy Carter is good at the whole secret agent thing, apparently ABC no longer requires her services. News came yesterday that ABC has canceled the Marvel series starting Hayley Atwell after two critically acclaimed seasons that nobody seems to have watched.
I’m sort of ashamed to admit that I’m among those who have never watched Agent Carter. Not because the show doesn’t interest me, but because there are so many other shows that compete for my time. I honestly just never got around to sitting down and watching an episode. I’m sure I’ll catch up eventually via Netflix though.
“Such a nice internet you have here . . . shame if something should happen to it!”
It’s a slow week in tech news, but the few headlines that trickle out are still nearly enough to get Zohner to rage! We have AdBlock flexing is muscles, cellphones not causing brain cancer (duh), Teslas becoming the new bio-terrorism response vehicle, and Microsoft looking at shading your patio (not really).
The FBI is in a tricky situation here; on one hand, they are expected to give Apple vulnerability info to make them more secure . . . on the other, they really don’t want to! Twitter can’t seem to make a buck, the Bill of Rights may not be enforceable anymore, and Europe really doesn’t know how this internet thing works!
