The Crazy Facebook Messenger App Rules and a Safe Way to Install

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSLast week Facebook turned off the Messenger within the main app to force the masses to download the new app. As I mentioned before, this is to control your phone’s contact list and ultimately your phone itself. But recent issues cropped up stating the apps terms of conditions were a little seedy. The Wall Street Journal talked about how when you install the app, it tries to take over your contacts. Within the small print, they found the app could use your information to their advantage. One policy would allow Facebook to message your contacts without your knowledge. I would guess that was to allow the Facebook notifications and Inbox to alert of new messages.Further, the app could take over your camera and audio at any time. This can get spun into a state where people would be in fear that Facebook...

Google Hangouts, Photos and the Direction of Google Plus

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSGoogle has separated Hangouts from Google+ and is planning to do the same with photos. Will YouTube be the next in this Exodus? Where does this leave the social Network Google+? In June of 2011, Vic Gundotra and crew debuted Google+ and the Google Hangout. A video conference service for up to 10 people to “Hang Out”. As a beta user and original Hangout member, we used to spend a lot of late night hours bouncing from one hangout to another. Since then, the Hangout feature has vastly improved. They switched to their own VP8 codec, giving an HD quality to the service. Bringing in an open API, many have built some great apps around the video service such as lower 3rds, cameraman, and more. Google has also changed the way Hangouts initiates. They created an IM environment which takes over the...

Can Smartphones Be Slowing Us Down?

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSYou’ve seen it before – You’re running to get to a destination, maybe get to the next flight, walk the street to your next meeting. You run into that one person looking down at their smartphone, oblivious to the world and slowing everyone down. You would like to curse at them, but you know you do it yourself. Are smartphones slowing us down? I just read an interesting article on Dineability.com. A popular New York restaurant noticed the service to be slow. They decided to bring in a group to see why. This group reviewed the surveillance system and noticed a trend that not made the servers slower, but the customer. The group had the restaurant pull up tapes from 10 years prior to figure out the problem. What they found was that the customer was slowing the process down because the...

AirSig Password Wallet: Write in the Air to Authenticate, Open apps

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSWhen I pull out my phone I have to run the unlock code, find the app I want and open it up. AirSig has a better idea – Press a button and write Facebook in the air to open Facebook up. Air signature to even unlock the phone. Stating that everyone has a different writing style, AirSign uses the accelerometer to map out your writing style. After all – you sign your name different than others do. If the phone recognizes your signature then it can open up. Here is how it works – the user holds the phone similar to a pen. They push a button and air-write their name to unlock the phone. Different commands could open different apps. If you write Twitter in the air it will open up the social network. I got to see how it not...

Apple Beats: What is Tim Cook-ing up at Apple?

Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS Last week I was in New York for TechCrunch Disrupt. I got some great videos and tons of awesome footage of Times Square. However, when I returned my back decided to rebel from carrying 40 lbs throughout the city. Its been a tough weekend of recouping. Before the back siezed up I was able to hit some Friday garage sales with my brother. We hit an ultimate score – 2 totes full of in-box Spawn and Star Wars figures. We got it for a deal and are figuring out the next steps. If anyone wants to buy some, let me know. Last night’s TWIGG had a lot of great news. The Glass teardown found the device cost $150 to make – $200-250 with software and R&D. We had to ask why Glass was still $1,500. HP sent me 2 new devices which...

Twitter’s IPO: Is it Facebook IPO all Over Again? Geek Smack! 6th Anniversary Episode

Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS 6th anniversary of the podcast is upon us! I started this show back in 2007 – named “The Show”. Fourth pair of Google Glass is going back to Google. This time, the camera died. I talk about it on TWIGG. My EmpireAvenue account is at 112 but more interesting is the numbers watching and listening increased.

Could Kevin Rose make a good CEO at Microsoft? 4

Why Kevin Rose Should be the Next CEO of Microsoft

Today, Steve Ballmer announced he will be retiring in 12 months. This was set to a lot of mixed emotion. In this world of high technology, CEOs seem to have a good exit plan – Bill Gates had Ballmer in mind when he retired and Steve Jobs had Tim Cook. Ballmer has no one in mind (that we know of). This could start people worrying about Microsoft’s direction. What Microsoft needs is s thinker. An innovator. Someone that will understand the corporate and consumer ends of technology. That is why I think Kevin Rose should be the next CEO of Microsoft. Why Kevin Rose as CEO of Microsoft? Kevin started early – creating Revision 3, Digg, Pownce and Milk. He has invested in ventures such as Gowalla, Twitter, Foursquare, OMGPOP, Square, Facebook, Chomp and Formspring. Rose took his company Milk and pretty much turned it into Google Ventures where he gets 300 million a year...
