Episode 109

This week’s episode of The Voicemail starts off with Stefan being subjected to a game of “guess the smartphone” by James. Once that’s over, the two discuss: Square finally announcing chip-and-pin support, Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, Instagram Bolt, Samsung’s rumored Galaxy Alpha, Re/code’s interview of the CEO of Best Buy, and Google Cardboard.

As always, feedback is greatly appreciated, and an iTunes rating would be even better. Everyone knows iTunes is the worst piece of software ever written, yet oddly enough, where you sit on Apple’s top podcasts list does great things to your listener numbers.

      If you can’t laugh at yourself, you can’t laugh at all.

      I’m Romanian and I don’t trust most Romanians.

      There’s a reason the stereotype exists.

    Hello Mr. Whatley and Mr. Constantinescu!

    Love your podcast, especially the 30 minut format.

    I’d like to ask you about Tab #09 from August 04 (TabDump) (http://www.khou.com/story/news/crime/2014/07/30/houston-man-charged-with-child-porn-possession-after-google-cyber-tip/13378459/)

    First of all, I agree with Google’s actions in reporting the jerk.

    But where is the line between the right for privacy and “Big Brother”? If you record yourself speeding and send it by email to a friend, does Google have the right to report it to the police? Should there be a list of offences that should be reported? Who decides on said list?

    If I remember correctly Stefan said, that if you put anything online, you cannot expect it to be private. In this logic, do you even need a warrant for searching someones Google Drive, for example?

    It’s a complicated topic and I have written a lot of questions but I’d love to hear your opinion.

  2. Just playing episode catch-up and felt I should share that I have bought tech at the supermarket….I have bought a laptop in Tesco. Reasons, it was cheap & simple and it was only a laptop for my father-in-law so key things were it worked, it was cheap, had internet & the ability to word process 🙂
