67: Nintendo, SoftBank, Star Wars

In episode 67, we cover the news of Nintendo continuing their nostalgia run with the launch of a mini NES, Uber reaching 2 billion trips, rumours that Apple will buy Formula 1, Samsung Note 7 to have an iris scanner and Google will build a AR headset to compete with Microsoft. Will it get any crazier? It does. Japanese telco giant SoftBank buys an arm for $32b, not just any arm but chip designer ARM. Their chip designs are found in Apple and Samsung devices and may other devices that connect to the internet.

Our main feature covers the Star Wars Celebration event in London where we look at more Rogue One details and a spoiler, which we didn’t spoil. The event covers all things geeky from the animated series to how they built the cardboard models of all the machines to prepare for the movies. All this and more in episode 67 of the Lazy Couch Podcast.
