We’ve got a lot to talk about this week on the GeekWire radio show (MP3), starting with a report from Microsoft’s Build conference in San Francisco, where I’ve been spending the past week getting a behind-the-scenes look at Windows 8.1.
Our guest in the studio is Andru Edwards, the founder of the Gear Live tech site who also writes the Ask Andru column on GeekWire. He offers his thoughts on iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks, and shares some of his stories from his participation in the Ford “Fiesta Movement” social media campaign.
We also talk about some of the top startup news of the week, including the cool Poppy device that turns an iPhone into a 3D camera, and an app called IdealSeat that crunches large amounts of data to tell baseball fans where they should sit for the best chance of catching a ball.
And then there’s the ongoing saga of the “Creepy Cameraman” and his creepy videos, the latest of which was pulled from YouTube because of harassment complaints.
App of the Week: ClearCam for iPhone, a 99-cent app that blends the data from multiple photos to come up with a super-crisp composite, creating the equivalent of up to an 18 MP photo. Chris Pirillo, our recent guest on the show, recommended this one.
Name that Tech Tune: The answer to last week’s challenge is … Electronic Battleship.
