After a very rough start to 2020, Alberto and Paul are back. Apologies to everyone - this episode was recorded after CES and before the Oscars in mid-January. As things (finally) get back to normal, we're going to bombard you all with content.
In this episode, we discuss "Crunch" in videogames, the Democratic primaries, dystopian applications of facial recognition software, the value of CES, and what we're looking forward to in 2020.

Paul and Alberto are back on the mic and they've come to a realization - launching a new product is tough. In this episode, they discuss day-one issues with the Google Stadia and Disney Plus. From issues with connectivity, lack of options, and in Disney's case - compromised user data it appeared everyone experienced a failure to launch.
It wasn't all bad news, Ford launched their new Mustang Mach-E, an all-electric performance SUV whose most controversial feature was the Mustang name. Alberto goes in on what's in a name - spoiler alert: shut up nerds.

Originally recorded in mid-September, this episode was originally a recap of Apple's iPhone Event but quickly turned to streaming services. It's like cable! (But, you know, worse.) So while Paul and Alberto gripe about having to subscribe to ten different services to watch a handful of shows, they did manage to talk about all things iPhone and Apple Watch, Google Pixel 4, and the new Fujifilm X-Pro 3.

Paul and Alberto are back with another summer episode. This time they tackle Phase 4 of the MCU, the FTC's free pass on Facebook, and the Right to Repair. Also, it was a hot start to August (when this episode was recorded) both Alberto and Paul need help with their electric bills.
This episode kicks off with Paul and Alberto discussing the Right to Repair and how it impacts not just the DIY community, but big industry and regular consumers as well.
Facebook got the ultimate get-out-of-jail-free card from the FTC; sure it costs them $5B but they make that much in a month. Worse yet, Wall Street got the message loud and clear: the FTC isn't concerned with your privacy and neither are they - Facebook's stock went up immediately after news of the fine was announced.
Lastly, the MCU is the GOAT. Period. Now let's get hyped and drunk off of speculation!

This episode is a little late because life happens, but Paul and Alberto got a chance to talk about John Wick 3 and Paul said farewell to Game of Thrones. Alberto would rather just catch up in meme form, as all adults should.

It's been two full weeks and some change - here's our spoiler-filled review/commentary on Avengers: Endgame.

After some technical difficulties, Alberto and Paul have returned to chat about life during the Facebook outage of 2019, the sudden interest of politicians treating tech companies as for-real businesses (complete with consequences to their actions), and we as the question: "what can we do about Big Tech's ever-increasing encroachment of our daily lives?
