Is your smartphone just a phone? Or is it your computer, TV, and camera too? Is the reality of having everything on a single device changing innovation?
This month, Rod Drury and Gary Turner discuss those very topics on the third installment of The Rod and Gary Show. From the death of the gadget to what that means for the future of innovation – they’re not holding anything back!
You’ll hear how the idea of ‘automation destroying jobs before creating new ones’ prompted a strongly worded letter to the Times – and how Rod and Gary feel about the subject.
“We have an amazing capacity for ingenuity as humans. Nobody’s talking about ‘Well actually, we’re not just going to sit by and watch robots come and automation come and destroy jobs, we’re going to create this new industry, we have to think forward, not defensively,’” says Gary.
Also on the agenda? Rod and Gary discuss the most memorable keynotes from the 2016 AWS re:Invent conference and dive into the computing powerhouse that is Amazon. Plus, don’t miss their thoughts on the emergence of VRM (Vendor Relationship Management) and join in as the two geek out on all the products, hardware, and apps they’re currently using. Are Apple’s AirPods all they’re cracked up to be?
All that plus a dose of binge-watching Westworld and Transcendence, and why they’re both loving Spotify at the moment. Tune into The Rod & Gary Show #3, you won’t want to miss it!
