Episode 110

This week, James and Stefan tackle: Pebble’s new smartwatch options, Motorola’s Moto 360, the Timex Ironman, Evan Blass (@evleaks) leaving the internet, Google calling the cops on a paedophile in Texas, Xiaomi kicking Samsung’s teeth in, and space. Dark. Infinite. Lonely. Space.

As always, feedback is appreciated, whether it be a comment below, a Twitter reply, or better yet, an iTunes rating. No one really likes iTunes, but being ranked well on their podcast downloads chart seems to do wonders, so get on that.

  1. Thanks for answering my question!

    Stefan’s explanation of “fingerprints” on criminal photos helped me understand how Google was able to flag it. I will carry on emailing my speeding videos to friends:-):-)

    Have a great week.

  2. With all the talk of Xiaomi last episode and in Jame’s five Things On Friday, uncovering this I had to share. The piece is a bit inconclusive but the jist is a Xiaomi phone beamed back personal data and the IMEI number of the phone to a Chinese server. This for sure isn’t the first security firm uncovering something similar to this, but Mikko Hyppönen (great TED talk by the way) and F-Secure have been consistently right in the past. Bigger Far East companies such as Huawei have been prevented from selling in the west and Chinese state employees are no longer allowed to use iPhones, how can Xiaomi make waves with its cheap and compelling handsets when things like this are a reality?

    Thanks for answering my previous question and continuing to love the show, especially the half hour format.
    Have a good rest of your week.
