Material is a weekly discussion about the Google and Android universe. Your intrepid hosts try to answer the question, “What holds up the digital world?” The answer, so far, is that it’s Google all the way down.



#143: Parrot Identification Algorithms

March 22nd, 2018 · 70 minutes

Andy succumbs to the neighbour headache inducing awesomeness that is the Google Home Maaaaaaax. Russell admits to spending way too long on RPG characters. Flo changes all the Assistants to be men so she can control their tiny minds. Will the stink of Facebook's trouble spread to Google? Will police start harvesting all your Google location data? Do we have a right to be forgotten?

I tell you what it risked getting really deep until we jumped to talking about Instant Games Augmented Reality Anatomy. All this and more on your *second favourite podcast on the Interwebz.

*second meaning first. First favourite just sounded awkward.
