After a series of failed recordings, a one-week holiday that entailed a 7-day 700km cycle trip from Johannesburg to Kosi Bay and a Skype call gone bad, Brett Haggard finally gets it together and puts out a new episode. He’s joined by Andy Hadfield and Adam Oxford for a bumper show, all about:
- The African (and Kenya-specific) startup/tech scene;
- Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge and Gear S;
- Sony’s Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact, Smart Watch 3 and SmartBand;
- Apple’s iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Watch;
- Apple Pay and what some of the local players think;
- Mojang getting bought by Microsoft (and Notch’s departure);
- The Android One programme and why we think it’s cool; and
- Intel’s Edison and Galileo.
Our technology picks of the week are:
- Adam picks the Asus TF303CL (he’s just bought one);
- Andy picks: Mention: a mention tracker on the web and in the iOS app store, and the Time Magazine story about ‘Last of Us’ being through the eye of a War Photographer; and
- Brettski picks the Dell Venue 8 7000 Android Tablet and its Intel ‘Realsense’ 3D camera (due to launch before year-end).
