#229: Bohemian Rhapsody

November 16th, 2019 · 92 minutes

Andy and Flo have less than two months in this decade, so they go through all of their accomplishments in the last ten years. (Just kidding, no they don't.) After some catch-up, and a brief discussion on the merits of cooking with butter, the two dive into the implications of Google collecting personal medical data. We wonder out loud if it's time for an amendment to HIPAA now that Silicon Valley wants a piece of the medical pie. We'll also discuss Apple's Phil Schiller and his recent comments on the ineffectiveness of Chromebooks in schools, and we'll point you to Google's latest AI experiment, the FreddieMeter.
