A Podcast that translates Geek into Regular Speak. Tech expert Brett Levy discusses cool tech, Virtual and Augmented Reality and more! 

Episode #010 - TechKnowledgy - Make the Event Count!

In this week’s show we will look at the #AppoftheWeek, Screenz with a “z” Mixed Reality, the #AandBSplitTest and speak to our guest Ryf Quail.

  • The #AppoftheWeek is Rain Parrot - a cool rain predicting app that works off the BOM radar technology around Australia (iOs only I’m afraid).
  • We reviewed the Old Skool Kool Pebble Time smart watch
  • #AandBSplitTest - looking at the behemoth Amazon vs the established eBay
  • Mixed Reality special mention went to Snapchat for their AR Friendmoji launch - and for their intro of Blockchain to VR
  • Then to wrap it up we chatted to Ryf Quail - the Managing Director of Comexposium ANZ about events and the upcoming AD:Tech

The take away from this episode is that even with tech we can not predict the weather. If you are going to invest in technology - do so because it will solve a requirement not just because it looks good. When you are going to shop online - its not just the products and prices but the service and even more importantly - the after-service that needs to be considered. AR and VR are not fads and we will continue to talk about these every week and watch them grow! Censorship based on events or occurences is not good for anyone or anything, then we chatted about the fact that there is still a need and reason to attend events like AD:Tech


Three Tips

  • Even if you check the weather you may still want to carry an umbrella.
  • Smart watches are cool but they need to be functional too
  • If you are going to spend money attending an event - pre-plan and make it count!
