3×36: Nor Any Drop

Stuart Langridge, Jono Bacon, and Jeremy Garcia present Bad Voltage, in which we discuss the mysterious arrival of boxes, how to play CDs, and:

  • [00:02:18] We review the 8Sleep Pod Pro Cover, an internet-connected mattress, which Jono claims is actually useful. There is, not surprisingly, some scepticism about this claim, but equally: sleep is important and basically nobody gets enough of it. So let’s have a look!
  • [00:21:35] There has recently been a bunch of governmental, court, and regulatory pushback on Apple around the world about their policies on their app store and their gatekeeping process for their platform: in the US and Japan, South Korea, and Russia among others. Relatedly, the UK are also doing a regulatory study into this sort of thing and Stuart was invited to speak to them as an expert and showed them some slides about browser choice on iOS. We’re going to talk about this a little.
