A great start to the Google ecosystem!

After getting in a slump over “This Week in Google’s” one-sided politics, I was thrilled to find Alphabet Scoop! Stephen & Abner have done great work on their inaugural episodes. The pair have a wonderful talent to go from strictly reporting on new tech, developments, & rumors, to sharing their biases, and then speculation on the future of Google. And these two are conscious enough to criticize Google in their shortcomings (Ep1: Apple Watch vs the languishing Android Wear). They are not Apple fanboys, by any stretch; they’re simply damned good hosts who are doing their best to cover all the angles they can think of. And it doesn’t stop their: Chrome OS, Fuschia, Android code updates & breakdowns: they’ve really done a lot of hard work and it seems they’re dedicated to making “Alphabet Scoop” a success.

My one criticism, and this is purely subjective, is that the hosts seem a little stiff in their interactions. In time, I think this will get ironed out, but in these first two episodes the pair halfway feel like they’re reading from a script and halfway having a conversation.

Overall a great podcast start, I am excited for the next episode!

Stephen Hall is such a cynic

The podcast is very good full of very helpful details, solid analysis, and great and timely headlines. But Stephen Hall is such a cynic, he misses strategic significance of tech. He dissed Google Duplex on the Web (a major advancement to the future of voice) as confusing and diluted in scope. Indeed he is frequently rather arrogant in his presentation stating facts in a professorial way that often misses the strategic significance of various tech advancements and put down average listeners as just “normal people, for whom the podcast must be made more normal people friendly”. The co host and content is good though
