Tonight we chatted with Nathan Olivarez-Giles about his love for all things VR and more. We discuss encryption in Android devices and how the FBI case might have been different if the San Bernadino shooter used an Android phone for work, instead of an iPhone. More and more encryption is becoming a luxury item and some Android users trade it for a faster phone. We talk voice assistants as helpers in times of emotional need, SpoonRocket's demise, and whether you'd order from Uber Eats. Then we checked in with Elise Hu from NPR's Seoul bureau where she's been covering the tournament between Go champion Lee Seedol and Google's AI. Then we delve into several VR stories and discuss our take on various headsets. Finally, we explore the exciting world of pigeon pollution sensors. All that and more, you won't want to miss this episode!
