podcastnewThis week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast: Satellite antenna startup Kymeta strikes a deal with Toyota, Snoop Dogg has some strong words for Bill Gates, the city of Seattle has some new rules for Amazon, and one state legislator is calling for an investigation into bots buying tickets for Adele’s Seattle concert.

We recap the craziest things our team saw at CES, such as a connected umbrella. Our App of the Week, You Must Build a Boat, is a fun new game that combines Match-3 with RPG. Plus, a new report says Amazon is working on a portable Echo — which, we speculate, could be a natural step toward another Amazon smartphone.

Also listen for the return of the GeekWire Trivia Challenge, with a chance to win tickets to GeekWire Startup Day, coming up Feb. 12 in Bellevue, Wash.
