    We stare at the SpaceX spacesuit for two hours [episode 42]

    29/09/2017 Duración: 01h02min

    The mysterious episode #42 of Mallercast has magically appeared! This episode was uploaded at the beginning of September, but there was a serious problem with the audio (the show was 98% silence.) Not good! Plus, we had left for vacation the day after it was uploaded. Also not good! Then, when we returned from vacation, I got a little lazy. Again, not good! But, lazy can be nice some times. Anyhow, we hope you enjoy this one. There will be another in October. Huzzah! Here are the show notes - http://www.sam-mallery.com/2017/09/we-stare-at-the-spacex-spacesuit-for-two-hours-episode-42

    We take a long, hard look at the new Amazon Echo Show, and try to determine if it's the kind of thing we would ever consider actually buying.

    Have you ever tried to record a simple phone call? It seems like it shouldn't be difficult to do, but if you want decent sound quality, it's actually very hard and requires expensive equipment.

    Congress recently voted to allow internet providers collect and sell your web browsing data without your consent, so we explain how you can easily hide this data with a software tool called a VPN.

After that thoughtful and frank discussion, we chat about recent tech and aerospace news, celebrate our 30th episode, and talk about how Shannon wants to put speaker-rocks in our yard so she can use them as a PA system. This new idea sat well with me. Check out the show notes here - http://www.sam-mallery.com/2017/04/how-to-hide-your-web-data-with-a-vpn-episode-30 Thanks!

    This week we analyze the new Pandora Premium music streaming service, what it means for the world, and how humanity will adapt and cope with it. We also talk a bit about SXSW and how it's lame that it's mostly recognized as a tech show not a music festival. We discuss the internet-connected jean jacket from Google's Project Jacquard and Levi's, and last but not least, we enter the THE MUSK ZONE and talk about the Tesla Model 3 that was spotted in the wild, the latest SpaceX mission, and how Elon is planning on ending all of South Australia's power grid woes in 100 days.

    After two weeks of an unplanned, undesired hiatus, Mallercast is back! Two weeks ago Sam was stricken with a terrible cold and could not speak. One week ago a show was recorded, but a literal technical blip made the recording unlistenable! Against all odds we've returned this week to talk about SpaceX's bold plan to shoot multi-billionaires further into the solar system than ever before, we talk about Nokia time traveling back to 2002 to rerelease the 3310 dumb phone, and we blah blah blah about all kinds of other topics as well, such as Apple getting into AR and original content, and Snapchat making a drone. Weird, wacky stuff. Here's the link to the show notes - http://www.sam-mallery.com/2017/03/two-anonymous-billionaires-floating-in-space-episode-27

On the lighter side, we chat about Apple's strong earnings, and how the headphone-jackless iPhone 7 somehow played a role in Apple selling a record 78 million iPhones in three months.
