Yup, we talked about browsers tonight... something along the lines of browser wars version 3.0. Apparently firefox is coming out with a new version that blocks all tracking out of the box... then we find out that a browser called Brave also already does this out of the box! Kevin talked about a chrome plugin that lets you pick which scripts to block and Bob worried about what all this new browser stuff will do to his robust event tracking in google analytics. We also talked a bit about the social media hearings on the Hill today and what this all means for the future of truth in our worlds... tune in and let us know what you think!
We had so much fun with this episode! We discussed everything from Dependency Injection, to the Surfacebook 2 and pretty much everything in between. If you are interested in learning Bob's & Kevin's thoughts on many current TV shows and more, this is the episode for you! We talk Westworld, House of Cards, Game of Thrones and Silicon Valley. As usual, please let us know what you want to hear more of, or less of... and be sure to rate us on Apple Podcasts if you can... Thanks!
So, we try a cold open for the first time and would love to know what you think of it. In the actual episode, Bob & Kevin have an interesting conversation about how much learning is required to be a developer today and where code camps fit into the equation. Kevin found some pretty expensive camps with some pretty big promises. We cover some interesting aspects of development and the various levels of knowledge that it might take to get specific tasks down. Well rounded or specialized... we discuss it all!
This was by far our most controversial episode! Bob & Kevin discussed propaganda, brainwashing, cults and more as it relates to when something should be banned from various social outlets and the slippery slope that comes with deciding when someone no longer has the right to spread their message. We also talk about the blurred lines between entertainment and reality and if anyone is really EVER telling the full truth and sharing all the facts. Where the heck are we supposed to get our news these days? Heck is this chart even legit? https://www.facebook.com/vanessa.otero.9619/posts/10155006385626062 - who the hell knows!
We are just cranking out the content as fast as tech is spitting out the headlines! In this episode, we discuss the recent demo of Google Duplex and just how creepy robot calling could get. Then we try to identify any of the tech giants that we are okay with... it was hard to find any, but the banter is hilarious. We even talked some flying cars, the Turing Test and a bunch more.
