Podcast - This Is Only a Test

Episode 399A – Not Hot Dog – 5/19/17

Due to “miscalculation”, we’re not quite at episode 400 yet! But this week, Kishore is back with Jeremy and Norm to share his thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy 2, discuss all the announcements from Google I/O, and get hyped up on the science of moving trees. Plus, we disagree on opinions for the new Star Trek show and do a real-time test of Google’s drawing recognition system.

  1. i download mp3s. It is usually happens when i am buying from a place like bandcamp or 7digital. The streaming stuff takes too much data and i am not around wifi for alot of the day.

    coincidentally the soundfiles often come packaged in .zip format… zip itself is an interesting case study of patents expiring and an obsolete technology sticking around for decades after technically better alternatives have been invented. Reminds me of the old unix saying “worse is better”… or even a saying from Tested… “the best camera is the one you have”.

  2. On the section about Elon Musk’s the Boring Company I am pretty sure this test was not done in a subterranean tunnel that he made. I would wager a guess that it is actually the hyperloop test track that they built at SpaceX. That track is a tubular above ground track. However I do think he has begun an actual tunnel at SpaceX but that this footage is not that tunnel.

  3. The first MP3 I downloaded (and the reason I downloaded winamp) was the Tom Greene “The Bum Bum Song.” Ah, youth.

  4. With all the Star Trek talk, I think we’re definitely past due for an update from Jeremy on his family journey through TNG.

  5. Star trek: The prosthetics looked horrible even saw the mold lines. Seriously look at this on a larger screen. Design was very poor, thought this is another spoof. But what do I know.

  6. The Snapdragon 835 is the same processor that is used on the US version of the Samsung S8. So… We “do” have stats for it, at least on a mobile phone. The Snapdragon 810 was announced in 2014, Kishore’s Pixel, for instance, uses the 821.

  7. I’m a big fan of the podcast (and the whole website) but one of you should step us as a bigger “Android fanboy” so that we could have the same informed talk that we have regarding Apple and Amazon…

  8. Kishore is the resident Android user and typically talks about that end. Norm used to be primarily an Android user.

  9. And I love hearing him do that part. It’s just that, most of the time, iOS gets a LOT of talk time, when Android as a whole is almost referred in a footnote.
