This week on the GeekWire radio show: Microsoft unveils plans for a DVR for the Xbox One, but there’s a catch. Tech companies up the ante for employee benefits. Guess where Seattle ranks among the world’s top 20 startup ecosystems? And we dig up some surprising news about Expedia’s long-term expansion plans.
We also have a fun debate over the emerging world of eSports. We’re joined in the GeekWire offices by reporters Taylor Soper and Jacob Demmitt, who talked with attendees at the DOTA 2 championships, better known as The International, at Seattle’s KeyArena this week. More than $18 million in prize money is at stake — a larger purse than in many traditional professional sports tournaments.
App of the Week: Handpick for iOS, a recipe app connected to a grocery delivery service. And we discuss the app Record360, which lets you document the state of rental cars, equipment, rental properties and more in a way that can be authenticated later if there’s a dispute.
