Today’s Episode

The iPhone 7 will be announced next week. That’s great news for a lot of Apple lovers. There are a lot of you too. However, Apple is in hot water over the “touch disease.” It is a nasty glitch for the iPhone. It basically makes the touch interface difficult to use or non-functioning. For a smartphone, that makes it useless. Some people are not happy about this. They have decided to bring a class-action lawsuit. They claim that Apple knew about this and has done nothing to help the situation. This is a sad turn of events for Apple. Apple has been on a slow decline for the past few years. It should be interesting to see how Apple handles this.

Anyways, on with the show!

Two of the most anticipated games came out this month. Deus Ex and No Man’s Sky. They were talked about with enthusiasm. However, reality has set in and people are not happy about them.

business

Today’s Episode

Business has more options than ever before. It’s knowing what tools to use. I gave my short list of tools that I use to stay ahead or at least keep going. I do have a full-time job. If not for the tools I use, I would not be able to do this. Also, I talk about some interesting data about video ads, Pinterest now owns Instapaper. That is one of the best acquisition I’ve seen in a while. It makes the most sense.

Digital Coffee celebrates Linux’s Birthday and talks about diversity

Linux

Today’s Episode

Linux is an interesting operating system. It does not follow the other ones, but, it is influential in the tech industry. The OS has loyal followers that push out new patches constantly. It powers many devices we use today and it shows the power of open source. So, Happy Birthday Linux! Now, I do want to take the time to call out Comcast. God, you are an awful company. This latest news just proves how awful you are. I do hope the FCC and FTC investigate your sleazy practices. I’m pro business, but you guys are on another level of awful. I do not think Comcast is trying to be good. They are always bad. Avoid them if you can.

Anyways, on with the show!

This episode has New Games, VR, Updates and blunders

blunders

Today’s Episode

The latest blunder in a long line of blunders in the gaming industry is Metal Gear. What the heck? I do not understand why they made it a co-op zombie game. This just sounds slapped on. I know the creator of the series left, but, come up with something original. If we are seeing the sad end to Metal Gear, then so be it. I am not interested in this at all. However, Deus Ex is coming out! That looks to continue what the prequel did so well. I cannot wait for this.

Anyways, on with the show!

Digital Coffee talks about why it’s important to be secure

secure

Today’s Episode

It’s tough to be secure in the tech world. We hear about big companies being the target of another hack. Even the government cannot stop people from hacking their servers. It’s tough for people to know who to trust. However, there are many great options out there, too! I hope that you backup those important files. They can be locked away by an attacker and then used against you. If you backup your files daily, you’ll have nothing to worry about. It’s the people that do not which is the issue. You may think you’ll never be hacked, but that is a mistake. I hope you take you cyber security seriously.

Facebook has no love for ad blockers

ad blockers

Today’s Episode

Ad blockers, the necessary evil of online browsing. Most people use it to do anything on the web. Ads have become a problem. They are disruptive to the flow of posts. There are full-page ads that disconnect the consumer from the content. Publishers and marketers created this mess. This is a big problem. My professional pushed people to use ad blockers. Now, Facebook has to do something drastic. They need to make sure people are seeing ads. This is where the majority of their revenue comes from. More ad blockers used, then no money generated. I may not like Facebook, but, I understand why they are doing it. I also talk about the state of social media marketing. It’s similar to tech. There’s a lot of new tech being used and video is the dominant medium for this space. The future is interesting.

Anyways, listen from more of my insight.

My Two Bytes on the State of Tech

Tech

Today’s Episode

Tech, it’s an interesting topic to discuss. There’s always something great and terrible happening. It’s in a constant state of change. It is the best analogy of life. We are all in a constant state change. Life demands us to change or die. Tech is at a major crossroad for change. If you know anything about it, this does not happen that often. We’ve seen some great innovations and some small ones. We have VR and AR coming of age. We have cars that will drive themselves. AI development is leading to some interesting experiments. I will predict that AI will be our cyber security. They will be way more efficient than how we do it today.

Now, businesses are going to need to care about security. We’ve seen too many examples of hacks that lead to lawsuits. There have to be better protocols for stopping most of these hacks. This should not be happening once a month. This needs to stop. Companies need to find a better way. Please, back up your data.

Anyways, enjoy this episode!
