117: Facebook’s Unification, Netflix’s Future, Nike’s Self-Lacing Sneakers

Are you a Whatsapp user that never joined Facebook? Well, that may be a thing of the past if Zuckerberg has anything to do with an upcoming project to unify all of Facebook’s many messaging services into one. There’s a great chance too, you know being the CEO and all. While Netflix has been forced to go on a price hike in America to keep its revenues up, as it prepares to stave off competition coming from all angles. If you have an ad-blocker extension on your Chrome, you may want to switch to Firefox as Google looks to re-engineer some key APIs on Chrome. Meanwhile, Nike just released its latest self-lacing sneakers and people are going nuts over them!

As always, we cover all angles using clips from different sources so you get everything you need to know, right here on The Lazy Couch podcast.

  1. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
