  1. Episode 183: Amazon’s news bonanza explained – IoT Podcast – Internet of Things

    Last week Amazon released a ridiculous amount of news that we’ve covered in detail, but Kevin and I talk it out and draw attention to some of the things we thought were relevant. We stay in the Seattle area to cover the Microsoft news out this week on new Azure products and Cortana’s new enterprise skills. We also talk about the new Withings watch, August’s module for Yale locks, and HomeKit support for Rachio sprinklers. Our hotline question this week is a listener’s challenge with kids and his freezer.

    Amazon launched a $60 Microwave with Alexa inside as well as a $25 smart plug.This week’s guest is Raiford Smith, who joins us from Entergy to discuss his company’s digital transformation. He walks listeners through the process of creating a group to handle the technical demands of building products around data and analytics, and then talks about how to communicate with vendors and business units. It’s a detailed look at this utility’s two-year process to get a grip on the potential inherent in the internet of things. Enjoy.

  4. 2017/08/08: James Damore and his Google Memo on Diversity (complete)

    In this video, I talk to James Damore and another employee who wishes to remain anonymous about James’ memo regarding Google’s diversity programs and their overweening ideological basis. He was fired last night. That says everything that needs to be said.

    This means that the company that is arguably in charge of more of the world’s communication than any other has now fired a promising engineer for stating a series of established scientific truths. That’s worth thinking about.

    A fund-raiser for James has been established, here: https://www.wesearchr.com/bounties/ja

  7. Are Payday Loans Really as Evil as People Say?

    Critics — including President Obama — say short-term, high-interest loans are predatory, trapping borrowers in a cycle of debt. But some economists see them as a useful financial instrument for people who need them. As the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau promotes new regulation, we ask: who’s right?
