This week, former The Drill Down co-host (and current co-host of TARDISBlend) Tom Cheredar joins Dwayne and Andy to discuss how hackers pulled off one of the largest heists in history, a toy from the 50s is updated for the 21st century, the FAA grounds Amazon’s drone plans, and…is Apple building a self-driving car?
This week, Chinese hackers infiltrate The New York Times & The Wall Street Journal, hackers expose 250,000 Twitter accounts, Oreo leverages the Superbowl blackout for a terrific example of social media marketing, is Netflix’s full season release schedule for “House of Cards” the future of television…or a big mistake, will your body –or any biological organism for that matter– be the next unlimited storage device, and if you thought J.J. Abrams hit the motherlode last week for helming both Star Trek and Star Wars franchises, wait’ll you hear this week’s news.
This week, it’s now illegal to unlock your phone, Twitter launches Vine, a short-form video service, Microsoft Office & YouTube go to paid subscriptions, Ashton Kutcher & JJ Abrams shake up the geek universe, and are the new Blackberry OS & devices Blackberry’s last gasp, or is it already too late?
This week we come to you LIVE from the 2011 San Diego ComicCon International, the premiere convention for comics, movies, television and pop culture. And even though they couldn’t all be in the same room at the same time, Andy, Tom and Devindra still managed to individually bring you their impressions of the ComicCon 2011 experience. We also cover some of the hot headlines of the week, including Apple’s new launches, The Sun hacked by LulzSec, Google’s G+ iPhone app, Microsoft’s secret new social site, and more.
