Gamification leading on where the porn industry left off

Did you know that the porn industry was the pioneer of pushing boundaries and making the web what it is today. The games industry has now taken on this touch and we discuss in what ways and how gamification has spilled over into other aspects of our online and offline lives. Does a leader board, 100k+ followers or super hosts actually just put the rest of us mere morals off and how does this play out with morale in educational games? Dan has a rant about loot boxes (again!)... and then we move on to the finance industry magicking money out of the air. Errrrr might we get some negative feedback? You will have to listen.

Gamification leading on where the porn industry left off

What if the Coronavirus hit in the 1980's?

Is technology a help or a hindrance during this unprecedented Covid-19 lock down. What would it have been like without zoom and social media. What will change when we emerge from this stasis? Would slower supply chains and 'paperwork' actually have had a beneficial effect. Dan gets a little cross with the pasta panickers as he doesn't have a chest freezer, pantry or shed to fill with the stuff and Abi gets trolled. It is a brave new world but has technology made it better, do we all really need house party or will an old school phone do?

The best laptop for kids, now that we are all homeschooling

It is different times we find ourselves, and different times mean.... new laptops! Well that is where we have found ourselves thrown into homeschooling. In this episode we discuss the right and wrong laptop choices for children; budget, specs, pitfalls, warranty, and mistakes we suggest you don't make as we have made them already!

Do we all need a 3D Printer.. yet?

The rise and… pan of 3d printing, but will it be the future? Will printing with organic material allow us to live a green life; it doesn’t matter if it wears out, or isn’t strong forever, as you just print another one. Imagine printing storage boxes at the moment you need them, or re-purposing whole rooms to become something else.. careful going out for the night the kids may have recycled and re-printed the furniture. We discuss the type of printers now and in the future, the type of applications they may fulfil, and spend too much time focusing on eggcups.. but no mention of Covid-19 we promise.

The Internet of Things (IoT)

Good, bad or over hyped? We can see the future but right now a connected toaster isn't quite doing it for us. Today we explore the possible uses of IoT and their benefits to humanity. Big data has always been used for good and bad so the more connected our devices the more companies know and the more they can use this for... or against us. But what about the good in emergency services, supermarkets, global emissions and greening our planet? Or perhaps the netflix-atisation of our fridge? What if this connected world could help us save money. Forget uswitch, just use AI to always put us on the right tariff, and cancel unused subscriptions. Then there is self mending machines, roads, trains and even humans! Imagine not having to get rail replacement buses ever again. We are in an age of digital dis-harmonisation - who doesn't shout at their device. Can IoT change that, will we start to love alexa?

Should we be using a different search engine?

Google, Duck Duck Go, Ecosia, Tor, Dog pile, Swiss Cows, I'm not making these up they are all search engines, and which one should we use? Not to forget social searching, video searching academic and medical searching and if you are Dan tank searching - not petrol or fish just to be clear. This week we have a look at whether we should be using a different search engine, what privacy has to play in this and how much Dan hates GDPR - again.
