Google is turning stupid and we will pay for it

Google

Today’s Episode

I’m back! You can Google it! Ha! This is Digital Coffee 2.0. It’s a new day and only once a week. I would love to do daily, but, a full-time job does not make this possible. However, Google is not on my good list. They are close to being hated as bad as Facebook. You all know how bad I hate Facebook. It’s more of a good loathe. This week I am talking about Google doing some bad things. I also talk about the unnecessary¬†hate AMD seems to get. It’s weird. They are making some great hardware lately. Enjoy

I dig into Vault 7, hate on Instagram and vulnerabilities in tech

Vault 7

Today’s Episode

Vault 7, it sounds like a new vault from Fallout, but, it’s not. The bombshell dropped on Tuesday about what the government is up to. It’s usually no good. It was discovered that the CIA is spying on everyone. They can do some terrible acts too. Time to talk about this and understand that tech has vulnerabilities. All new tech has mistakes. These are usually exploits of vulnerabilities. However, the government should be willing to help companies combat these things. I will talk about why the government is wrong in doing this and more. Enjoy!

Video Cards, CPUs, Snapchat IPO, Facebook tools oh my!

Snapchat IPO

Today’s Episode

Snapchat IPO is here! People are wondering if this company could rival Facebook. Twitter has not been a great contender for a while. They are still figuring out who they are and time is not on their side. This could be the best contender to rival Facebook in a long while.

I also talk about AMD and Nvidia products unveiled this week and so much more! Enjoy!

Verizon goes back to unlimited, Facebook and autoplay and PewDiePie against the media

PewDiePie

Today’s Episode

Like him or hate him, PewDiePie is a huge influence on YouTube. It’s funny how the media loves to hate him. They do not understand that he is trolling them and does not care. He has over 50 million subscribers on YouTube. Unless he does something so egregious, you are getting mad over nothing. Find out what I have to say about this in my show.

Also, Verizon brings unlimited data back. This is in response to what T-Mobile doing well. They finally have a response to losing customers to its competitor. I do not think it will be the same as before, but, it is a nice change. People loved unlimited data and that will always be a fact.

More to the show down below.

Senator live streams, Twitter marches to censorship and Netflix blunder

Netflix Blunder

Today’s Episode

Netflix blunder is nothing new now. This is the same thing every business is doing. Hate a specific group because it is socially acceptable. The best argument is that if you did this to any other group, that would be horrible. However, why is it acceptable to do it to white people? Netflix should be prepared for some loss in subscribers and a hit in their revenue. People will vote with their wallets. Be prepared.

Twitter looks to be marching towards censorship. This is looking more like a full control on what people can say on their network. Funny thing, when they were new, they wanted public discourse. Now, they would rather tell you it’s not good. Find out more down below.

Tech media stop virtue signaling and Apple, Google, Facebook shut up

Tech Media

Today’s Episode

Oh, tech media, what the hell is your problem. Yes, you should not bow to all of your reader’s whims, but, berating them is not good for your business. If your readers are telling you to report on tech more than politics, that may be something to look at. If this same group grows larger and larger, then, it’s time to listen. Writing an article about how they should shut up, means you should be doing the same thing. It’s time to stop pretending you have the moral authority to tell your readers they are wrong. Stop.

This leads me to the tech companies. Stop. Your arguments are terrible about the executive order on immigration. First, it’s not a ban. Stop calling it that. Second, no, your business was started by a White American. Last, we are not a nation of immigrants and stop using that argument. We were, but how long does it take to not be an immigrant?

Find out more down below.

Facebook less personalized and why the media hates facts, logic, speech?

Facebook

Today’s Episode

Facebook is doing it again! They are copying Snapchat, but, really, just taking Instagram stories and putting it on Facebook. So, they are copying, the copy. They are putting new ads in Messenger and doing away with a personalized trending topic. It’s an interesting move for Facebook. I really do not know what to think about this. Then we have Ellen K. Pao. If you do not know her, she is the former CEO of Reddit. She’s back on the censorship train. She is calling on Jack to ban the President from Twitter. The funny part is she disabled comments on her Medium post. Find out what I have to say about this and more!

I travel down the rabbit hole of CES 2017, full of weird tech.

CES 2017

Today’s Episode

It’s January and that means CES is back! CES 2017 seems to be about the smart fridges and convincing people about making their homes smart. It’s bigger this year. LG and Samsung are trying to persuade people into an always-connected life. Will people buy into it, is the question. There are some grave security questions about always connected devices. None of the companies seem too concerned about it either. This security concern does warrant me to hold off until they address this issue. No one should have their TV or fridge hijacked and told to pay money for it. However, I am hopefully these companies will wise up and invest time and money into it. This is the best way to get more customers and ensure they stay loyal.
