Episode 28, Machine Love

In this episode we dissect and satirize the emergent operating system from Microsoft, codenamed Windows 8. We wonder whether Microsoft can pull off the re-imagination of the modern operating system with its bold new hybrid desktop/tablet OS. Richard F praises Asus for their innovative Transformer tablet with its classy designer looks…and the Richards give the Apad II a chance to redeem itself after its appalling debut many episodes ago.

Richard F reviews the Star Trek episode “What are Little Girls Made of?”, which leads to a discussion on the origins of the word ‘Android’ as well Google’s love of algorithms and machine intelligence. Richard S consigns yet another beloved gadget to the graveyard.
