Hey everyone. It's been a wild start to November, but Alberto is flying solo this episode as he brings you two interviews and some notes on the Fujifilm X-Pro 3. 

Interview 1: Marco Cimetti and PepsiCo's Hydration Platform. How design choices affect everything from your carbon footprint to your willingness to make healthier choices. 

Interview 2: Alberto chats with Julien Zakoian about Meero, a platform that leverages community to help photographers land their next gig. 

Interview 3: Justin Stailey of Fujifilm North America talks to us about the X-Pro 3 and why Fujifilm still believes in the mighty APS-C X-Series cameras.

The Noisecast Episode 16 - Like Cable But Worse

October 3, 2019

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.

The Noisecast Episode 15 - What’s next in the MCU? Bad Facebook! And the Right to Repair.

August 12, 2019

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. 

The Rundown

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.

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?

The Noisecast Episode 9 - Let’s Not End On A Negative Note

December 6, 2018

As 2018 comes to a close, Alberto and Paul struggle not to have the year end on a sour note. Sure, we talk about robot job interviews and how more and more employers are adopting this highly impersonal approach to hiring, and we find out that Quora was hacked in real-time, but Paul saves the day with his IRL review of the Google Pixel 3! 

Thank you for rocking with us in 2018. We have one more show before the year is done and we hope to have some surprise guests as well as some bold predictions for 2019. Happy holidays.

The Noisecast Episode 8 - Paul’s Return

November 11, 2018

In this episode, Alberto and Paul are back with a full list of tech news and new gripes. Coming off of Apple's Oct. 30th announcement, we try to figure out if the latest computing advancements are worth losing the ability to do self-repairs. We also take a minute to remind our listeners that you don't just have to take - the Electronic Frontier Foundation is actively fighting back and trying to preserve users' rights (link below). 

Paul is on the fence about the new Google Pixel 3 - from underpowered internals to weird notches popping up, he's not sure if this is the phone for him. 

And lastly, we try to make sense of the recently announced Yongnuo YN450 - an Android-powered 4/3's camera that sports a Canon EF mount. Did we mention it runs Android 7.1? WTF?
