    Wed. 02/01 – The Memory Chip Rout (Again)

    You think things are bad in your corner of the tech sector? Wait until I tell you about the memory chip industry. OpenAI releases a tool to let you check if something was created by OpenAI. Netflix might be going a tad overboard on this password sharing crackdown. Meta wins round one against the FTC. And the interesting new app from the founders of Instagram.

    Tue. 01/31 – Weird Gaming News

    Today, some weird headlines from the world of gaming. Is VR gaming a big nothingburger for gamers themselves? Is E3 dead as a gaming industry event? Stripe is apparently raising a pretty significant down round. And the first Level 3 autonomous driving platform to receive regulatory approval belongs to Mercedes-Benz.

    Mon 01/30 – Every Platform Is Hustling To Unveil An AI Play

    Mon 01/30 – Every Platform Is Hustling To Unveil An AI Play

    Apres ChatGPT, prepare yourself for the generative AI deluge. Amazon says the free lunch for grocery delivery is over. More speculation about foldable iPads. San Francisco wants Waymo and Cruise to pump the breaks on their self-driving car experiments because the actual cars have been literally pumping the breaks too much. And my wager on whether or not 2023 will actually go down as the year that AI breaks through.

    Fri. 01/27 – More Buzzfeed News, If You Can Believe It

    What can make Buzzfeed hit our headlines two days in a row? How about jumping on the ChatGPT bandwagon? Amazon is apparently launching a major NFT project, like it’s 2021 or something. Is Stripe going to be our big tech IPO savior? And of course, the weekend longreads suggestions.

    Thu. 01/26 – Where Is The Line Going For Tech Right Now?

    Thu. 01/26 – Where Is The Line Going For Tech Right Now?

    I get all metaphysical about where the tech industry is going right now with a record slowdown in smartphone shipments, Masa Son seemingly misplacing his investing shoes, Meta and Buzzfeed joining forces to stave off irrelevancy, and universities offering degrees in AI for the first time. Oh, and are you SURE you want to spin up that Mastadon server?

    Wed. 01/25 – Is This Latest Suit The Biggest Threat To Google

    Wed. 01/25 – Is This Latest Suit The Biggest Threat To Google

    I’m gonna tell you why I think the latest antitrust suit against Google might be the most important one in terms of the overall tech ecosystem. And maybe the biggest threat Google is facing. Twitter reverses another thing they shouldn’t have broken in the first place. Why aren’t folks paying ransomware ransom as much anymore? And why are consumers not keeping their smart clothes dryers connected?

Great Podcast. One petty request..

I know you can’t possibly know all the pronunciations of everything but 1 thing stands out a lot - Xiao Mi. Or any Chinese that starts with “X”. Please don’t say it like “Jiao” Mi. Just say it like how it’s spelled. The podcast today is full of Xiao Mi news today and I can’t stand it anymore sorry.

Curated Tech News Done Right!

The amount of time this podcast saves is hard for me to calculate. I love tech news but have grown tired of all the fluff. Brian does a great job of staying on top of what is important but still dipping into trends and popular culture when it’s noteworthy. Kudos!🙏
