Episode 063 “Kirk vs. Picard And The 10,000 Year Clock”

Never fear, Adam is here! We’ve got Caterpillar and Land Rover Cell phones, a 10,000 year clock from Jeff Bezos, Walking Dead stars moving on from the show and Adam brings us a killer quiz show! Be sure to check it out, Jason and Adam even take a stand on who is the best Captain, Kirk or Picard!

Caterpillar announces updated mobile phone

Yes, that Caterpillar. The Heavy Equipment company has its own cell phone brand. The updated phone, called the Cat S61, has features that make it pretty unique. A thermal camera, indoor air quality sensors and even laser-assisted distance measurement system. The phone is actually built by a company called Bullitt Group and branded with the Caterpillar name. In other news, Land Rover also has their own line of super rugged phones made to withstand the elements.  The Land Rover phone is also built by Bullitt.

Spotify Now Hiring

We’ve mentioned it in the past, but it appears that Spotify is getting closer to jumping into the physical product game. A job posting by Spotify looking for an Ops Manager for a “hardware product” along with the line “Spotify is on its way to creating its first physical products” have all signs pointing to the jump. Watch out Apple, your white ring maker may have some more competition soon.

10,000 Year Clock

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos announced the construction has begun for a massive 10,000 year clock on his property in Texas. This clock will have a hand that ticks once per year, a hand that ticks once per century and best yet, a cuckoo will emerge once a millenium. The idea is to get people thinking about time differently, much the same as how viewing photos of the Earth from space changed thinking about the environment.
