In this episode:[0:50] The end of some very tough weeks. [5:00] Spider-man Far From Home teaser-trailer is very different from Into the Spider-verse. It has the elementals and Mysterio. Also, first some impressions of Titans on Netflix. [25:11] What is the real cost of our consumption? Throw-away culture vs. simplicity and the true cost of things. [37:05] The Alexa reading app is really enjoyable, but The Meg isn’t so good. Recommending George RR Martin’s A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms and J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion. The Audible version is especially good. [52:10] Is Apple speeding up AR technology development in an effort to mend their tanking stocks? [56:36] There is a custom hot-word hack for Google Home/Alexa. But it is far from elegant. [59:52] Ecamm streaming software for MacOS now also supports DSLRs and streaming to Twitch and YouTube.
