Ep. 060 - Black Mirror season 6 sneak peek and best tech gifts for Christmas 2019

December 13, 2019

This week, Bob & Kevin challenged each other to write episode teasers for two possible Black Mirror episodes - and we think you will like what we came up with!

We opened the show with some discussions about China and Russia and their new regulations related to software within the boundaries of each nation.

What would a mid-December episode be without a discussion about the best tech-related Christmas gifts of the season? Bob & Kevin discuss three tech gifts each, with a couple bonus gifts as well.

As always, hit us up on twitter - and give us some feedback about the episode - maybe there will be some free swag in it for you! If you listen on Apple podcasts, please consider rating the show, or leaving a review and if you listen on Spotify, like most of our amazing listeners... thanks, and keep downloading!!!

Thanks again,

Bob & Kevin continue their crusade against sketchy tech practices and in this episode discuss how the U.S. Government is taking issue with Tik Tok because it is an app developed out of China and it might be stealing our data... but apparently Facebook, Google and the like are just fine, because the government can actually request any of their data - or so Edward Snowden says!

We talk about some other tech stuff too. Hey, as always, reach out to us at https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow and let us know what you like, what you don't like, or what you want to hear us discuss more of.

Thanks for listening!

In this episode we celebrated our 50th! Sure we had about 30 or so YouTube Shows (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmOHJDCtT0THNKW49Ghxtmg) but can you believe we have recorded FIFTY podcast episodes!?!?!

We have been tackling some heavy topics lately on the show, so today we decided to talk some tech headlines and see where things took us.

We talked about the latest iteration of the Boston Dynamics Atlas robot - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlas_(robot) in addition to how the idea of the "personal brand" has evolved since we got in "the game". 

We took a look at some recent press about podcast monetizing and the various options out there, plus much, much more! As always... if you want to leave us a comment, feel free to hit us up on twitter - https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow

Ep. 049 - The tech of sex: from leading edge adult video technologies to vibrators with phone apps to full blown A.I. sex dolls

Ep. 049 - The tech of sex: from leading edge adult video technologies to vibrators with phone apps to full blown A.I. sex dolls

September 20, 2019

So, this week we decided to discuss the role of technology in the adult entertainment/porn/sex industry. We did do some research and all the links can be found below.

We started with some banter about a the recent admission by the U.S. Military that some videos of UFOs were indeed authentic, but then we quickly got into the main topic - the tech of sex.

We started the discussion around web technology and how the "adult industry" really has been the birthplace of many technologies used throughout the web today. We also discussed how sites like pornhub.com make their stats available for research and how staggering some of their numbers are.

We then moved onto app controlled, self-pleasure devices and the Autoblow A.I. v3.0 - yeah, we are not making this crap up!

We then moved onto the sex doll industry and the inclusion of Artificial Intelligence in the latest iterations of sex dolls. 

Definitely listen to the episode and please check out some of the research we used for this week's show... it might not be the most "safe for work" research, but it is interesting for sure.

Ep. 043 - Sidewalk Labs Quayside proposal, new Twitter and alphabet soup

August 1, 2019

In this episode, Bob & Kevin discuss a planned neighborhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada being proposed by Alphabet (formerly Google) subsidiary, Sidewalk Labs. We discuss both the technological and non-tech innovations that are being proposed and discussed. It actually gets a little intense when Bob & Kevin discuss the application of the word 'utopia'. In addition to Quayside, we discuss new Twitter, a recent podcast from Land of the Giants (https://pca.st/V7d9) on the topic of the rise of Amazon Alexa and where the future may be. We wrap up the episode going over the list of all the companies that make up Alphabet - https://abc.xyz . We hope you enjoy and would love for you to reach out to us on https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow - let's connect!

July 25, 2019

We swear that we are not a Joe Rogan recap podcast, but this one was just too juicy to pass up for us. I mean come on... Alien technology... how can we not discuss this one! We pretty much debated the legitimacy of Bob Lazar and his amazing claims of alien technology. In addition to JRE #1315 we also referenced the documentary by Jeremy Corbell that is currently streaming on Netflix.

Anti-gravity propulsion, surfaces that turn into screens and that little machine that measures the bones in your hand - we pretty much cover it all.

We did some talk about the current season of Black Mirror, as well as, a couple of other sci-fi series. Let us know if you like what you hear or let us know what you want to hear more of - https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow
