TOPIC: After a few minutes of talk about the AWS outage and how our states and brick-and-mortars are allowing our private data to get loose (again), we bring on Rob Green from Dyson Corporation to talk about the recent Dyson Awards finalists, innovation in general, and just exactly how long it took them to build that crazy bladeless fan! Two of the finalists this year are local from Northwestern University, so tune in and support their efforts!
We missed Jay Garmon, which allowed us time for one coolsite of the week:
- Vaccine Location Finder – Not sure where to go to get your flu vaccine this year? Enter your zip and find a place nearby! Chances are your vaccine is covered or at very low cost, so what’s your excuse?
I sign us off with the song of the week “Le Goudron” by YACHT. You don’t have to understand it to move to it!
TOPIC: Mike and Dave miss our good buddy Jay Garmon, but have a lot of fun anyways debating Pandora vs. Slacker vs. iTunes and your personal music collection … and whatever you pick now it’s all shared on Facebook, for better or worse! We get into some browser wars, security and police, and then find a little time for coolsites of the week:
- Desmos Graphing Calculator – Quick and easy, great looking graphs from your functions and data points; almost enough to make even Mike look smart!
- Stickman – A great game for those of us whose drawing ability is stuck at about 2nd grade!
- Google Flights – Searching, planes, airlines, prices. Perfect!
- Hipmunk – Great mobile and web app for finding not just the cheapest, but the best flights!
The podcast only song of the week this week is “Hang Me Up to Dry” by The Cold War Kids!
