Sam and Donovan are back, this time talking about Project Loon, LTE Band 8 and Apple providing cell service in Puerto Rico as well as Apple’s iPhone X and how they’re offering certain users the ability to “step to the front of the line”, but not really. A writer for ZDNET learned the hard way and is thankful to Apple for saving him $1400. Even with the apparent success of Snap’s Spectacles, they have a ton of inventory and parts left in a warehouse. Are they concerned? Nope. New fiber technology could provide up to 10Gbit links to the home, just not here in the United States. Love to take nude photos but don’t want the embarrassment of someone seeing them in your camera roll? There’s an app for that. Google is pushing for encrypted DNS queries on Android, a Comcast user swears that Comcast’s usage meter is wrong and finally gives up and disconnects his Internet at home, Blizzard is making moves so watching Overwatch tournaments will be more enjoyable (and understandable) and Nielson is attempting to get to the bottom of Netflix’s viewer-ship numbers.
Sam talks about a lost episode of Doctor Who that was written by none other than Douglas Adams and airs some complaints he has about Gotham. Donovan talks about Star Trek Discovery being renewed for a 2nd season, though he can’t really figure out why. The movie GeoStorm is a bomb and Donovan brings in a bit of a conspiracy theory in connection with the movie, or at least, weather manipulation. Stranger Things is back for season 2 and Donovan points out that Patton Oswalt’s latest comedy special is worth the watch – much better than his last.
Rounding out the show, Donovan and Sam discuss Amazon’s new Cloud Cam and Key products — and why neither one of them would ever use the Amazon Key.
