Podcast - This Is Only a Test

Episode 527b – Blast from Jibo Past – 11/28/19

We’re all traveling this week for the Thanksgiving holiday, so here’s a vintage episode of This is Only a Test from the archive. The year is 2014. We’re talking Surface Pro 3, pinball cabinets, and Comcast cancelling woes. But most importantly, a personal assistant robot named Jibo has just been announced. Enjoy!

  1. I’m from the UK, I can handle repeats!

    This morning I was listening to last weeks pod and I couldn’t help but wonderrrrrrrr if Norm had inside knowledge, or heard a rumour about Cybertruck? As Norm was really pushing that, “what if it looks like a turd” angle. Personally I think it looks like the physics body for an exported car asset and they forgot to hide that layer before export. Or a Syd Mead first pass. No matter.

    Happy Thanksgiving all.
