Getting ready for Benjamin to take some time off in a few months, we order a new co-host and find his delivery to be incredibly speedy. Please join us in welcoming Oli to the team!
In a bumper episode we discuss why Oli chose Linux, ponder the implications of privacy, talk about the Samsung Galaxy S9, Apple’s upcoming events (one of which has already happened by the time you hear this episode), Microsoft’s confusing Windows 10 branding strategy and germicide-resistant devices from HP.
We also look into how the value of convenience drives us and reflect on if that’s a good thing or not. As part of the discussion we’d love your feedback, so please contact us using our contact form and let us know what you think.
