We have a fun GeekWire radio show for you this week, covering everything from Microsoft’s attempts to reshape its culture to T-Mobile’s continued efforts to shake up the wireless industry. Plus, we share inside details on genomics pioneer Lee Hood’s new startup, and discuss an innovative new update to one of our favorite weather apps, Dark Sky.
We also talk about KIRO Radio host Dori Monson’s problems with Verizon customer service, and offer some thoughts on how Dori’s priorities need to be adjusted just a bit.
But perhaps the best part of this week’s episode (for me, at least) is when I get to troubleshoot my GeekWire co-founder John Cook’s iPhone in the midst of recording the show. Listen for that classic moment in the fourth segment.
We kick things off with a discussion of Amazon’s Treasure Truck, a rolling deals program. Since we recorded the show, Amazon delayed the launch of the initiative. We’ll still do our best to get a paddleboard to give away on a future show.
Listen to the show below or via this MP3 file.
(By the way, on the off chance you want to hear more from us, also check out this week’s Law of Startups podcast, from Michael Schneider and Joe Wallin, who visited the GeekWire offices in Seattle to talk with John and me about Seattle startups, GeekWire and the tech news landscape. We share tips on pitching stories and talk about headline writing, among other topics.)
