inThirty 135 – Amazon Fire

Amazon quasi-surprised us today by releasing the Amazon Fire, a set top box, that is a direct competitor to the major set top box markets. Paul and Justin are on board, but Chaim is saying too late. We discuss the features, the need, and the problems all these set top boxes have.

Amazon.com, Editor In Chief – inThirty 105

With Jeff Bezos buying The Washington Post, we felt like we had to discuss it.  We focus on how news gets consumed, and the future of news.  We then speculate how this fits in with Amazon’s business model, and their newly minted content creator status.

[We had audio problems with hangouts, hence no video.  Piezo records left/right channels, so you will hear Chaim on the left channel.]

Episode 69 – Black Friday Blackout

Ready. Set. Shop. On episode 69 of inThirty we take you through Black Friday ChaimHarryJustin style and let you know what we purchased, or didn’t, after giving thanks. We talk about Small Business Saturday, Purple Monkey Dishwasher Sunday, and, of course Cyber Monday and consider whether the retailer or the retailee does better at the beginning of the holiday shopping season. We get classy and discuss the economic, philosophical, political, and technical implications of the “shop till you drop” mentality and decide we’re probably better off sticking to Samsung-versus-Apple type stuff.
