inThirty 129 – Whats App Again

Nothing special here, just talking once again about WhatsApp, a scrappy little startup that just sold for 19 Billion, with a B, to Facebook.  What does that mean for the rest of us.  Will we have to figure out another way to communicate, or will it coexist with Facebook.

inThirty 81 – Social Sharing

SocialSharingIconsOn this episode the guys talk about how they like to social network.  Turns out the guys all truly hate the state of social networking to the point that they sound like the elders on the internet telling ‘them ‘youngins to get off their damn lawns.

Part 1: We talk about Falcon Pro’s Twitter API limiting.  We all agree that we care because users bring social interaction to Twitter.

Part 2: Next Chaim details the new Google+ oAuth offering.  Spoiler alert:  Chaim loves it, Harry says he rather iCloud (whatever that means).

Part 3: We go back into discussing what should be the new social network.  We talk about App.net’s freemium model.

[Editor's note: We should be back to normal in terms of posting.  New episodes should be out on Friday].
