Jeremy Garcia, Bryan Lunduke, Jono Bacon, and Stuart Langridge present Bad Voltage, in which we discover that whitehouse.com is not the government. We also discuss:

  • Outernet, Google Loon, Facebook et al’s internet.org: all attempts, from small to globally-changing, to help bring internet connectivity to places and people that don’t have it, through satellites or balloons or drones or lasers. What’s the deal? And will it work? (2.15)
  • We speak to Carl Richell, CEO of Ubuntu laptop, desktop, and server vendors System76, about their new rebrand, the nature of design in hardware, and how they work (17.05)
  • Wrong in 60 Seconds: Jono is extremely annoyed (for a minute) about people (34.32)
  • A while back we were pretty sceptical about the Arubixs Portal, a bendable very powerful upcoming phone being crowdfunded: we are still sceptical, and so Brandon Mears, CEO of Arubixs, takes some time to explain to us how it’s not a hoax and the Portal is on its way (36.05)
  • Jeremy reviews the latest model of Amazon’s ebook reader, the Kindle Voyage (54.26)
