inThirty 145 – Pre Google I/O 2014

Just like pre WWDC, we talk about what is going to happen at Google I/O. Also like our pre WWDC, we couldn’t contain the show to just half hour. Instead of taking notes, we just winged it. You got thirty minutes of us trying to figure out what I/O is going to be this year.

Nothing… Big Fat nothing on truecrypt

We then tackle Google’s business model of making money through advertisements. They created Gmail to harvest data, but it is impressive that they created a chrome extension (End to End) to encrypt messages between people. Tom explains why this is good, how it works, and will Google get brownie points for this.

Mid-Summer Night’s Google Announcement (After Dark) – inThirty 103b

This is the post show where we discuss all the mistakes that mainly Chaim said throughout the show. We are joined by Michael Degusta, and Kelly Guimont

We took “Breakfast with Sundar Pichai,” and finally digested it.  We present with you with the inThirty nightcap.  Which of the big three announcements is the most important.  Is a Nexus 7 worth it.  Is Chaim’s assessment that Android OS is now taking a backseat.


Show Notes:
Chrome Cast SDK
Play Store – Chrome Cast
Nexus 7
Android 4.3
