It’s been well over a month, mostly because Isaac and I have been developing The Pi Podcast. I’ve also done loads of mintCasts and episodes of Linux Luddites which is now a weekly show. Isaac bought a new phone.

 

News and discussion

We spoke about Donald Trump and the American electoral system.

We mentioned MicroSoft’s new AI and spoke about Windows 10.

Isaac mentioned an old story about the Chinese government banning Windows 8.

The Recall on cars getting hacked led on to discussion about the Internet of things.

Joe doesn’t understand why anyone would waste their time watching people play games on Twitch. Isaac sees things differently.

Grooveshark.li is dead and Joe hasn’t found a replacement yet.
