We tackle the big issues this week with the trends emerging in online sales during Thanksgiving/Black Friday and take a deep dive into the politics of transhumanism. What does it mean to be human? What happens when we no longer need our biological bodies? How will we be ready? On the news front, Alibaba dominates the headlines, while Zuckerberg announces that he’s giving his wealth away. Amazon refuses to let up on their drone delivery proposal and Yahoo refuses to die. Bless.
On episode 32, while Kelvin is away on assignment, Geoff is joined by friends of the show, Pete and Chris. Topics include iOS 9, the ad-block-alypse and the future of education. We ask the hard-hitting questions like.. will Sydney ever become smart enough to be a genuine tech hub? And just what IS steak made of anyway? Join us for this special ‘future 2045’ episode of The Lazy Couch.
