inThirty 150 – Ingress for iOS

Ingress for iOS just came out, and I wanted to offer a primer for those who may not understand. The game isn’t difficult, but overwhelming at first. I’ve recruited Darren Yung, to help discuss the game. The goal is to get you to understand the game in the thirty minutes we have. We tried to provide the best mix of backstory, game play, and challenges, but there is too much.

I suggest you watch for some screen shots.

In side news, both CEOs at Google and Microsoft sat down to discuss *stuff.* We say stuff because we couldn’t see how this affected their company, other than from a philosophical standpoint. Larry and Sergey talked about their seemingly political beliefs, while Satya Nadella of Microsoft discussed his novella of a memo to the company.

We break down, hopefully, eloquently, what each CEO said.
