A blizzard of camera announcements hit this week, with new models from the likes of Sony, Olympus, and FujiFilm. But the most interesting devices to come out this week? Leica’s instant camera, Nikon’s 360 camera, and the new action cams and freakin’ drone from GoPro. Also on this week’s show, David gives us the backstory on Allo, Google’s chat app with an AI assistant, and how it stacks up against not only Google’s other chat and AI products, but also Apple’s iMessage and Siri. Oh yeah, and the one that everyone uses, WhatsApp.
Some notes: The GQ story on Michael Jackson. WIRED’s story on Google Allo’s launch. Leica’s fun Sofort instant camera. Brent Rose provides details on GoPro’s new stuff. Be sure to watch the Karma reveal.
