Listen to this show: MP3 - 128K | | Add or read comments



This week: Matt Warwick, host of Garbage Time on WFMU (Tuesdays 9am to 12 noon Eastern). Matt talks about his favorite smartphone apps, and why he doesn't worry about trying new tech.

Apps we talk about:

Blippar

Movie Pass (see also the CEO's recent apology)

Stringr

Robinhood

Qriket

Cash Show, a knock-off of HQ Trivia

Recent Tech News

Apple becomes first trillion-dollar company (Guardian, Aug 2)

As Google Maps Renames Neighborhoods, Residents Fume (NYT, Aug 2): Google Maps is becoming the accepted authority on neighborhood names, even when no one has heard of them ("East Cut" in SF), when they're typed wrong (Detroit's "Fishkorn" vs. the correct "Fiskhorn"), or just a joke (LA's "Silver Lake Heights"). New Yorkers can thank Google for presenting the world with "BoCoCa" (Boerum Hill / Cobble Hill / Carroll Gardens) and "Rambo" (Right Around the Manhattan Bridge Overpass).

Local Resistance Builds to Google’s ‘Smart City’ in Toronto (WSJ, Aug 1): Sidewalk Labs, a subsidiary of Alphabet (Google), is creating a "smart neighborhood" on Toronto's waterfront called Quayside. "Privacy watchdogs have questioned who will control sensitive digital information as residents are tracked by sensors that may be embedded in such infrastructure as traffic lights, thermostats and garbage-disposal units. ... it also could allow Alphabet to incorporate some early ideas it gleaned from developing things like driverless cars, connected thermostats and security cameras."

Google is embracing evil (New York Post, Aug 1), describing Google's efforts to get back into China with a censorship-friendly search engine. The Post concludes, "There’s still time to stand up for free thought, free speech, and a free internet."



Tonight's outtro is in honor of Matt Warwick! Listen to his show, Garbage Time, tomorrow (Tuesday) starting at 9am Eastern.

@ Linda Lee -- right?!! re: TriBeCa
when i was first venturing into NYC in the late 1970s -- i would break out my trusty Hagstrom maps and subway maps and write down directions if i had to (oh sure i was just some dumb kid from NJ -- but even i knew better than to break out a map while on the subway!)
NOW i see all these young-uns (especially on "party" nights in Hoboken and NYC) and they all have "smart" phones, GPS, etc., and they STILL cannot find where they parked their car(s) hah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 8/6/18 6:22pm JakeGould:

Most modern neighborhood names were concocted by real estate agents for marketing purposes. So I don’t respect that “history.” Cobble Hill is a name created in the 1950s for gentrification purposes. The name Boreum Hill was coined in 1964 for similar purposes. Carroll Gardens might have history but it became pushed heavily after the BQE split the neighborhood.

Don’t fall for fake history. At least in NYC.

Okay, Mark – your discussion of that community filled all the Google / Nest current and future sensors and IoT devices reminds me to ask you: are you (I hope!) familiar with Ray Bradbury's perfect and prescient short story "The Murderer"?

Bradbury had this world we live in and are diving deeper into pegged – in 1953!

"I'm here to help you," said the psychiatrist, frowning.
Something was wrong with the room. He had hesitated
the moment he entered. He glanced around. The
prisoner laughed. "If you're wondering why it's so quiet
in here, I just kicked the radio to death."

Violent, thought the doctor.

The prisoner read this thought, smiled, put out a gentle
hand. "No, only to machines that yak-yak-yak."

Bits of the wall radio's tubes and wires lay on the gray
carpeting. Ignoring these, feeling that smile upon him
like a heat lamp, the psychiatrist sat across from his
patient in the unusual silence which was like the
gathering of a storm.

"You're Mr. Albert Brock, who calls himself The
Murderer?"

Brock nodded pleasantly. "Before we start . . ." He
moved quietly and quickly to detach the wrist radio
from the doctor's arm. He tucked it in his teeth like a
walnut, gritted, heard it crack, handed it back to the
appalled psychiatrist as if he had done them both a
favor. "That's better."

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 8/6/18 6:30pm Jeff Moore:

"Mr. Brock, may I suggest that so far your whole
pattern here is not very- practical? If you didn't like
transit radios or office radios or car business radios,
why didn't you join a fraternity of radio haters, start
petitions, get legal and constitutional rulings? After all,
this is a democracy."

"And I," said Brock, "am that thing best called a
minority. I did join fraternities, picket, pass petitions,
take it to court. Year after year I protested. Everyone
laughed. Everyone else loved bus radios and
commercials. I was out of step."

"Then you should have taken it like a good soldier,
don't you think? The majority rules."

"But they went too far. If a little music and 'keeping in
touch' was charming, they figured a lot would be ten
times as charming. I went wild! I got home to find my
wife hysterical. Why? Because she had been
completely out of touch with me for half a day.
Remember, I did a dance on my wrist radio? Well, that
night I laid plans to murder my house."

# JakeGould -- have not had the news on, but i sure hope it was some sort of accident (i am way too familiar with deliberate crap done to those who are vulnerable)
@ Linda Lee -- right! East Village Other!
@ ngh -- exactly! perhaps descriptions for some neighborhoods (like "West Village") were kinda coined by the residents? but most definitely NOT by some inanimate entity like google!
