Welcome back! This week is a little late after Zencaster had a small hiccup. Either way, Google announced a bunch of new hardware. Their big announcement was the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Besides the new phones, Google announced two new Google Homes. There was also Google Clips, a new Daydream, Pixel buds, and a new Pixelbook. It was a big event. We have a bunch of new hardware from Google. Sunny bought the Pixel 2 XL and Leon opted to stay with is original Pixel. If you want to read more check out Digitalbounds.com.

Howdy, welcome back! Sunny and I are back after a few technical difficulties. We're trying very hard to iron out our schedule, but life, work, and the unforeseen weather have continued to disrupt our plans. But, we'll talk again on Sunday to shift back into a normal schedule. This week Sunny and I talked about the news from last week including Nest, August, Smart Desk, and Pixel XL rumors and leaks. We also talked about the Amazon event which happened earlier in the day. Sunny reacts live as I tell him about all the new products for Alexa. If you want to find more about us follow us on Twitter - @sunnysinghio and @leonhitchens.

Hey, Welcome back! This is a special mid-week episode for the Apple Event at the Steve Jobs Theater. During the event, Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 3, Apple TV 4K, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, and the iPhone X (10). Sunny and I glazed over the boring Apple Watch and Apple TV news, but we dove into what the iPhone X means for the company. Sunny and I both have the same view here: Apple should not have released the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, instead, they should have only released the iPhone X. The edge-to-edge screen, wireless charging, and Face ID is well worth the extra money but only for a small portion of the world who can afford it. Read my full thoughts on Digital Bounds (http://digitalbounds.com/2017/09/12/apple-release-iphone-x-iphone-8-8-plus/). Thanks for listening to the special mid-week episode.

Aaron is a successful podcaster, influencer, and ultimate frisbee player. I met Aaron briefly during SXSW where I did a short interview with him asking his thoughts on the McDonald's VR experience. Since then I’ve kept tabs on his podcast, writing, and his social media updates. After almost two years of me following him, Aaron reached out when we posted that we were looking for interviewees for the podcast. We have a lot of information to cover with Aaron today. I want to talk about how he got started, what drives him, and where he’d like to move his side hustle. Social Media information: http://www.goingdeepwithaaron.com/ https://twitter.com/AaronWatson59 https://www.instagram.com/aaronwatson59/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-TQPfKOAH5f9vmVnGT9GPQ?sub_confirmation=1 http://www.influencive.com/author/aaron-watson/ Topics Overview: - Day job but talk about the side hustles more than anything. Explain ultimate frisbee. A brief overview of the sport, how you got started in it, and what’s the outlook for the growing sport. The only thing I know about the sport is Marques (MKHB) plays. New Book. I know the books about Ultimate Frisbee. What’s the process and how did you get started with the podcast. Thoughts on Snapchat, Spectacles Questions: - What are some challenges that you’ve faced in starting up a podcast? What is some advice you’d recommend to beginners looking to share their voice? - In interviewing people from so many different industries (e.g. writing, tech, finance, sports), how do you manage to keep the audience interested? Perhaps there was a challenge from the first question can relate to this question, such as if there was a challenge in getting a regular set of listeners for each episode. What are some other podcasts that you like to listen to? - Do you follow or have an interest in technology? If so, how do you relate it to what you do (e.g. tech used on the podcast, fitness tech used in training for ultimate)? - How do you feel about Twitter changing everything? How do you think of Facebook making you pay to reach your whole audience?
