Je(re)my Garcia, Stuart Langri(d
ge), Jono Ba(con) and Bry-(in) Lunduke present Bad Voltage, in which half of us change phones, half of us go to All Things Open, and:
- 00:02:13 Jono buys the new Google Pixel and tells us what he thinks of the big G’s entry into the mobile market. Is it actually better? Is it just a new Nexus? What’s the deal with software makers making hardware anyway? And is it worth the money?
- 00:26:36 We’ve recently seen a large distributed denial of service, operated by shady figures in control of a huge internet-connected devices botnet. Are such things the wave of the future? What can be done to stop it? Taking in regulation, consumer purchasing decisions, the nature of the internet, next-generation platforms for IoT devices, the word “shonky”, geopolitics, collective action problems and human psychology, the impact had by speaking out, and whether anyone needs an Toaster of Things anyway
