Digital Coffee Podcast

This podcast dedicated to all things tech. The story of how this came about was ordinary, maybe, but what I want to do with it, is extraordinary. I was working at a coffee shop and pondered my love for coffee and tech. I have also grown up around tech. I also had a new passion for coffee. This idea stayed with me until I figured out the name. Digital Coffee was born. So, with this idea I look at tech as I do coffee. How is the “tech brewed?” In my reviews, I look at it as a taste test, except I don’t drink the tech. I mean, who would? If you do, please let me know how I can! Anyways, if you feel like this is a great space to learn and have fun with tech, then, feel free to support me. I don’t mind at all!

BF1 DLC is finally here for premium members and it is interesting. I am not sure about the new mode, but, the maps are pretty good. They have a good mix of open tank battles and confined spaces for infantry. I still have to play more of it to get a feel if this is a good DLC.

Hootsuite is a popular social media scheduling tool. It recently got into ads with its purchase of AdEspresso recently and now its buying another company. It's an interesting time for the company. It also looks like Hootsuite and Buffer are going in different direction.

BF1 or Battlefield 1 got its winter update. It was a great update. I personally do not care about ribbons. I think they are useless and people will get plenty of these ribbons. I never cared for them in BF3 and BF4. It's a personal opinion. I do think DICE needs to look at some other things they missed, but, they are doing a good job balancing for the most part. We will see what happens when the new DLC comes out.

Twitch released some stats about their site and streamers. Unsurprising, Finland is the friendliest place to game. Find out on this episode.

  • Talking about Twitch stats

Also, Verizon brings unlimited data back. This is in response to what T-Mobile doing well. They finally have a response to losing customers to its competitor. I do not think it will be the same as before, but, it is a nice change. People loved unlimited data and that will always be a fact.

Google ads, they are effective. Even Google has figured out the right formula for their own products. However, Google ads to affect ads. This is going to be an increasing problem the more Google pushes into products. Companies should try to beat their ads. It's not right given that Google knows their system very well, but, that is the world we live in.

The funny part is seeing Facebook activity going down. This may be what most people were feeling. It has been felt for a while that people do not use Facebook as much as they use to. This is why Facebook has moved into developing countries. They know people use other sites or have canceled their accounts.

Today's Episode

Activision lays off some staff from its developers. This is because of Call of Duty and missing Q4 projections. It's sad and unfortunate to hear people losing their jobs. However, Call of Duty is in a rut. It has had some upgrades to the game, but, releasing games every year makes it boring. We shall see if Call of Duty in 2017 will be different and better. I do hope it does. Even though I do not prefer playing the game, I still like seeing competition from these developers.

I've been playing For Honor open beta a little. It's interesting. This could be a surprise hit for Ubisoft if they can keep it competitive and have an equal distribution between the factions. That was the problem with Planetside 2. In the beginning, one faction dominated. We shall see.

Show Timeline:

  • Valve is changing Greenlight
  • Stark Trek: Bridge Commander coming in May
  • Valve is working on some VR games
  • Conan Exile sells over 300,000 games and mod tools coming
  • Destiny 2 is coming out this year
  • Call of Duty is "going back to its roots"
  • Activision layoffs of some staff
  • Ghost Recon Wildlands going to have eye tracking technology
  • Mass Effect: Andromeda will have sidequest like The Witcher 3
  • New dialogue system in Mass Effect will let you "be yourself"
  • Overwatch rebalances Roadhog and Winston in PTR
  • Rainbow Six Siege Starter Edition is back and here to stay
  • E3 is opening to the public this year
  • My initial impressions of For Honor
  • My impressions of Ghost Recon Wildlands

Gaming Deals:

Highlights from the Show:

Ghost Recon was a mediocre open world game

If For Honor can keep a balanced ratio in the factions,  it might be a hit.

It's good that Mass Effect will have better sidequests.

Netflix blunder is nothing new now. This is the same thing every business is doing. Hate a specific group because it is socially acceptable. The best argument is that if you did this to any other group, that would be horrible. However, why is it acceptable to do it to white people? Netflix should be prepared for some loss in subscribers and a hit in their revenue. People will vote with their wallets. Be prepared.

Twitter looks to be marching towards censorship. This is looking more like a full control on what people can say on their network. Funny thing, when they were new, they wanted public discourse. Now, they would rather tell you it's not good.

The Super Bowl. It's a time for people to get together and enjoy two teams fighting for a title. One of the reasons why the Super Bowl got so popular is because of the commercials. Businesses decided to make their commercials spectacles that were funny. Football brought people together. It did not matter what political affiliation you were, it was time to watch a great game... hopefully. Now, that seems like an impossible task. This year some businesses decided to go political.

However, it was not all of them. Some still showed their funny side, but, others missed the ball. In this tense time in America, businesses need to understand that it is getting worse. You can stand for something, but, be prepared to suffer some consequences for that. Audi is the best example. They decided to make a commercial about gender issues and forget they were selling cars.

This episode is all about the commercials and other things that happened at the Super Bowl. Mostly, it has to with the messaging and making sure you do not do something that will set a group off or a smaller group. Find out more down below

Show Timeline:

  • Talking about the Super Bowl
  • Rating the Ads
  • Once again, telling why it's important to stay neutral
  • How companies will pay for their political statements
  • How bad some companies were not understanding the event or their audience

  • What I want to see businesses doing in the future

Today's Episode

Oh, tech media, what the hell is your problem. Yes, you should not bow to all of your reader's whims, but, berating them is not good for your business. If your readers are telling you to report on tech more than politics, that may be something to look at. If this same group grows larger and larger, then, it's time to listen. Writing an article about how they should shut up, means you should be doing the same thing. It's time to stop pretending you have the moral authority to tell your readers they are wrong. Stop.

This leads me to the tech companies. Stop. Your arguments are terrible about the executive order on immigration. First, it's not a ban. Stop calling it that. Second, no, your business was started by a White American. Last, we are not a nation of immigrants and stop using that argument. We were, but how long does it take to not be an immigrant?

Show Timeline:

  • Facebook is working on a streaming app
  • Comcast is doing what Comcast does
  • Microsoft is building a Windows cloud system
  • GoPro is making the Karma Drone again

Highlights from the show:

The tech media needs to stop moralizing and listen to their audience.

I do not understand tech companies hating western culture.

I'm fine if you disagree with me.

Starbucks virtue marketing. It's similar to virtue signaling. Too close from what I've seen. This is a way for a company to capitalize on a political controversy for monetary gain. They have done it before and will do it again. The problem with this is the company equates that every customer is a monolith. That is not true. No one agrees with you 100 percent. I do not care how close you are with your friend, there will be disagreements. Starbucks is painting itself into a corner, if they are not careful, their sales could drop.

The reason is my generation. My generation is the best virtue signaling group I have ever seen. It needs to stop. You are not making a change and you are forcing businesses into stupid decisions. Culture is a pendulum. One moment, one idea is popular, then years later, it switches. This is usually because of the next generation coming of age. I hope Starbucks weighs its risks, because this is a bitter fight in American culture, be sure you know what this means.

  • Study finds Amazon is the most trusted SMB

If you cannot stand lots of gore, this is not the game for you. It is great to see the survivor horror back in Resident Evil. I talk about why I rather play games than watch movies. Hollywood you really make it easy to skip out on your movies. Your writing is lazy and you do not make new content. Do better. Find out what I think about it and more down below.

Facebook is doing it again! They are copying Snapchat, but, really, just taking Instagram stories and putting it on Facebook. So, they are copying, the copy. They are putting new ads in Messenger and doing away with a personalized trending topic. It's an interesting move for Facebook. I really do not know what to think about this. Then we have Ellen K. Pao. If you do not know her, she is the former CEO of Reddit. She's back on the censorship train. She is calling on Jack to ban the President from Twitter. The funny part is she disabled comments on her Medium post. Find out what I have to say about this and more!

  • Apple sues Qualcomm
  • Inmoji is the interactive version of emoji

It happened, LinkedIn update is a great step forward in 2017. They unveiled their new web design and it looks great. They were talking about it for months and now they are rolling it out. I will add that I do not have it yet. It's a really slow rollout. If you have not gotten it yet, just sit tight. The update emphasizes content. This is just the push to be more modern on their website. It needed to happen. It's the best gift for social media in 2017!

I also talk about the need for businesses to stay neutral. It is the best policy. Unless you can guarantee there is no backlash and you are on the side that wins, it's a bad idea. If you want to know, Target paid the price for this. The bathroom policy good or bad had a consequence. Their sales went down 20 percent. It was a bad business move.  Find out why down below.

Show Timeline:

  • Youtube gets access to Google ad targeting
  • People are not happy with Twitter
  • LinkedIn gets a web redesign

Probably weapons based on the French army and that's all everyone knows outside of EA and DICE. Halo Wars 2 beta finally reached the PC today. There is only one mode and it's interesting.

This week we say goodbye to Vine as a social network. It will only live as a camera app now. It's not surprising given that Twitter did not put enough resources into it after the initial buy. The main culprit was live video. Live video eclipsed Vine as the preferred media for social media companies to invest in. This is Twitter's way of finding a path to profitability. It has not done that yet. Will you use Vine Camera?

The problem with Evernote was it was a little late on the update and treating its customers badly.

The problem with the Windows e-book store is not being available on every platform.

Facebook announced new live features for brands. Now you can live stream through your brand page on the web. This means brands can do better live video with better equipment. My brand page does not have it yet, but, social media companies do slow rollouts. The good thing for users is there is a potential for better content. That's what digital marketers are all about! Also, be aware that more live streaming is going to happen. This could make it oversaturated in a matter of years. That means making a plan and calculating what is going to be the best content for your fans.

We now turn to the demise of App.net. I know many of you may not have heard about this, but, it was supposed to be the alternative to Twitter. It was an interesting platform, but, it was too similar. The problem now is new companies copying another platform. Never do that. Be your own platform. Find out more down below.

  • Gen Z more resistant to ads
  • Instagram is testing ads in Stories

  • link command is dead. Stop using it.
  • What issues were discussed the most on Facebook and Instagram
  • Youtube releases Super Chat and payments options for live
  • App.net is no more

Twitter is on a roll. Not a good one, though. They announced Twitter dashboard will shut down. Yes, the dashboard app seemed interesting. Allowing brands and businesses to monitor, tweet and schedule all in one app. 2017 is not starting off on the right foot for Twitter. It was a business decision, but, maybe Twitter should focus on Twitter. No more other apps, just Twitter. Let's hope Twitter finds its way.

However, Facebook is finding a way to repair its relationship with publishers and reports. They have launched a new project dedicated to journalism. This gives them tools and a better way to live stream. It should be interesting to see if this pays off.

Vine is shutting down soon. This is not a surprise to anyone. The social platform was not supported by Twitter and it focused on live streaming. The audience dwindled and it is shutting down. It will live on as a camera, but, take a backseat to Periscope. It's a shame to how this all went down, but, six-second videos did not need a standalone platform. This is the best alternative. It is a reminder that everything can die and build your audience on different platforms is a wise decision. There are other platforms to do short video. There is no shortage of that. Facebook did a short update to brand pages. It's an interesting way to get business to post different content. I wonder if it will be any good. Only time will tell.

Show's Timeline:

  • Taboola changes from widget to platform
  • AOL unveils brandbuilder for your brand's ads.
  • Amazon made more money than any other e-commerce site
  • Alexa a marketer?
  • Google will put local numbers in ads
  • Vine is going offline Jan 17th

It's January and that means CES is back! CES 2017 seems to be about the smart fridges and convincing people about making their homes smart. It's bigger this year. LG and Samsung are trying to persuade people into an always-connected life. Will people buy into it, is the question. There are some grave security questions about always connected devices. None of the companies seem too concerned about it either. This security concern does warrant me to hold off until they address this issue. No one should have their TV or fridge hijacked and told to pay money for it. However, I am hopefully these companies will wise up and invest time and money into it. This is the best way to get more customers and ensure they stay loyal.

Show Timeline:

  • Zuckerberg wants to meet you
  • Happy New Year? Medium lays off some staff.
  • Samsung CES updates
  • Panasonic releases some updates on the GH5
  • Asus announces an AR/VR phone
  • Alexa is coming to your fridge
  • LG unveils a robot and a smart fridge
  • Fitbit, health and a VR bike?

  • Casio's rugged smartwatch is using AndroidWear 2.0
  • New specs for HDMI 2.1
  • Good job Uber and Lyft users. You're helping reduce congestion
  • HP has a weird computer

Zuckerberg is going on a road trip!

If you use Lyft and Uber, you can reduce congestion if you share your ride.

I don't understand why someone would need a 2 TB flash drive at 2 grand.
