This week, Budweiser autopilots its way to you via Tesla, why we’re losing a class of potential Einsteins, How Facebook won the election…in the Philippines, drones to call quitting time and shoot ferrets with peanut butter … and much more.
This week we bring you a supersized episode as we celebrate The Drill Down podcast’s 200th episode with interviews with former show co-hosts Reg Saddler & Lidija Davis, as they reminisce over their experiences on the show.
But before that, we cover two weeks worth of tech analysis, including the resignation of Rob ‘CmdrTaco’ Malda from Slashdot, an Apple television in the works, Microsoft’s Windows 8 Explorer layout, iTunes Match’s streaming function, Amazon’s upcoming Kindle tablet, the US Department of Justice and Sprint move to block the AT&T/T-Mobile merger, Apple loses another prototype iPhone (and attempts to get it back), Starz won’t renew its deal with Netflix, Michael Arrington starts a venture fund (and gets ousted from TechCrunch), Conde Nast spins Reddit off into its own company, and Yahoo! fires CEO Carol Bartz.
