    BONUS EPISODE: We're still on hiatus, but here's some tech news!

    in Technology

    It's been a few weeks since we ended season 1. Have you missed us? We've missed you!
    We're still in between seasons, but as we promised in episode 20, we thought you deserved some bonus episodes to keep your technology podcast thirst quenched. Here's the first bonus episode filled with some of the latest tech news, as well as an update on where we're at with the production of season 2!
    Firstly, we take a look at the recent ridiculousness that was Amazon Prime Day. In the lead-up, it was touted by the online retail giant as the biggest sales day since Woolworths went bust. Except, it wasn't. In the UK, the deals were a little bit disappointing, and in the US, Amazon was hit by massive allegations that it had inflated prices before the sale, only to drop them on the day in a bid to make the deals seem better than the were!
    Also in Amazon news, small business that sell on the website are up in arms in the US over plans to extend the company's no-reason returns policy to all marketplace sellers. They say it will 'crush' their business, but the fact is this kind policy is the law in the EU. Has it crushed small businesses there?
    We also look at news that a Tesla has broken the car's distance record and driven more than 1,000 km - or almost 700 miles - along with alarming, but not surprising, research that far too many of us are losing sleep to binge watching shows on services like Netflix or Amazon Prime.
    At the end of the show, there's also an update on the production of our second season. We're quite excited about it, and we want you to be as well!

About Technology

We love technology. Without the Internets, how could we offer 35,000 new shows a month to listen to, playback and download? Technology is so pervasive, we treat our devices like trusty companions, carrying them around with us, and going through withdrawal when they're recharging or misplaced. We discipline our children by taking away electronic privileges. We check tech blogs and forums for PC and Mac rumors. And just when we've geeked out on the latest-and-greatest gadgets, our eyes widen at the glimpse of what will quickly usurp them. Can't make it to SXSW, CTIA, CES and other trade shows? Our hosts take you there. Unsure which operating systems, software or apps are worth your time and money? Get expert advice from bestselling authors, CTOs and leading technologists on product news, e-learning, cloud computing, cameras, home entertainment, camcorders, iPhones, Androids, BlackBerrys, PlayStation, Wii, tablets, iPods and everything keeping our lives in sync.
