Episode 127: Series A funding for chicken wing and baby wipe business

Jeremy has way too many baby wipes at his house thanks to his automatic online orders.

Jeremy has way too many baby wipes at his house thanks to his automatic online orders.

We discuss subscription services: Diapers, baby wipes, tooth paste, coffee, whatever.

Unlike our parents, we don’t really go the store. Do we have a problem? Do you have a problem? Jeremy has too many baby wipes.

The main event of this show is Pat’s car search. He has a kid now and needs a newer, safer, bigger car. Also, he likes tech. What kind of tech should he get in his car? How is modern tech making cars safer?

Pat goes off on a rant about the state of in-car navigation systems in cars. This also leads to a discussion about the sad state of Apple’s CarPlay.

Episode 93: Siri in the car and MOOCs

Screen Shot 2014-01-06 at 11.39.33 AM

We discuss Siri and other voice integration into cars.

It’s one of the next big frontiers in cars. Car navigation and information systems are behind where they could be. It’s especially jarring after using a smartphone for several years. Why aren’t cars smarter and more connected to real-time data?

We also discuss MOOCs and what is and isn’t working with them. We’ve both done MOOCs, but that doesn’t mean we’ve finished the courses.

Maybe MOOCs aren’t the revolution that some touted, but they do have a place. Perhaps they need to iterate and we need to rethink their place.
