This week: Google knows every WiFi password in the world. Why not share, Google? A Toronto family bans all pre-1986 technology. Did they ban games from before then too? Because Super Mario Bros 3 is going to blow those kid’s minds.
James argues the iPhone announcement was more significant than I think, which isn’t saying much because I didn’t think it was significant at all. Obama’s speech on Syria: significant. For-profit company announcing a new product: not significant.
This week’s show is brought to you by the new Bitdefender One for All and All for You! Get The New Bitdefender Antivirus Plus for $49.95, The New Bitdefender Internet Security, normally $69, now also $49.95, and lastly, Bitdefender Total Security, normally $79, now $49.95.
