On this episode both Daniel and Brian were a little sad that they were broadcasting from their home offices not at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona missing #MWC17 as they’ve been broadcasting live from that event the last couple years.  

This conversation started as Daniel brought up the most innovative tech coming out of Mobile World Congress was the Nokia Snake Game and Nokia throwback phone.  The conversation took some interesting turns discussing a wide range of topics and questions

Questions and Topics discussed on this episode:

  • What makes people so in love with old school technology and is there a link to people wanting to live in the past or is it to slow down technology change?
