Will We See You in September?

Hi there, Cathi and I are taking a much needed break over the summer, but we'll be back for our TENTH(!) season right after Labour Day. Have a wonderful summer!

Car Tech, Traffic Tech, and Then Some Beer

Hi, we're back after a liiiitttle bit of a hiatus, but amped up and ready to go. This time around, Nora Young and Cathi Bond talk about some new tech solutions to the problem of distracted driving (via The Economist). As we move into a world of smart cars, and more devices in our vehicles, how will we maximize the power of them without becoming a distracted menace on the road? Nora mentions Social Physics, a new book by Alex (Sandy) Pentland, which includes an intriguing idea about how realtime information from smarter cars can make driving safer. In other news, remember Gort, the giant alien robot from The Day the Earth Stood Still? (We call him Klaatu in the podcast, but as fans will point out, Klaatu is the humanoid, and Gort is the robot). In any case, we were reminded of Gort when Cathi read the news of the use of a robotic looking automated traffic control system, in Kinshasa intersections (via PSFK). It's a smart invention, and it's even solar-powered! Cathi is a fan of fine beer. And here in Canada, beer is practically a bonding national characteristic. So Nora brings her Lean Machine Ale: a health beer, meant to be a healthier alternative to the post-exercise beer (via Springwise) Would you try it, or is there something special about a frosty pint after sports?

Christmas Special 2013!

Hi there, Happy Holidays! Time for our annual Christmas Special full of lots of whimsical toys. This time, Nora Young likes Urbio, a cool looking modular set of plates that you mount on the wall, then attach sleek white pots of various sizes to using magnets. Nora likes the mix-n-match quality of it, and the space saving aspect for those of us without a lot of counter space or window sills. You can use it for planting kitchen herbs or for general storage of small items in a home office. Also, cool: Beer! Nora talks about Collective Arts Brewing, a new craft beer company that features artists of all stripes on the beer labels. They select a curated crop of artists to put on the labels, and you can use the augmented reality app to learn more. Neat-o. Cathi Bond is thinking about experiences and travel this time, and has found two wild places. First is Kulturinsel Einsiedel (Culture Island) a whimsical, huge park near the Germany-Poland border. It features a series of treehouses (you can even spend the night) windmills, and all sorts of fantasy architecture (via Gizmag). She also showcases a wonderful art installation in Russia by Estonian architects Salto: a 170 metre trampoline road. See pics of the road in action over at The Guardian. Fun! And, because it wouldn't be a Sniffer Family Christmas without it, the Christmas Eve scene from The Thin Man:

The Sniffer, July 19, 2013: Trends in Search and Summer Fun

Summer Happy summer, all! This time around, Cathi Bond has some tips for summer fun. Going to be away all day at the beach? Why not feed your pet remotely with Pintofeed, an app-controlled food dispenser! Not only does it let you feed your pet remotely, it gives you all kinds of stats on your little sweetie's eating habits. Sounds about right for the Quantified Self pet owner in your life! (Via Gizmag). Plus, what's better on a hot day than a cold beer? Cathi's all excited about the Chillsner. Just pop a frozen Chillsner in your beer, and you're good to go (via Gizmag). Meanwhile, Nora Young's been trying out DuckDuckGo as a search engine, mostly because she's curious about a search tool that doesn't track user data. New Scientist has an interesting interview with its creator here. It has Cathi and Nora wondering if there's a market for tools that protect privacy. Do you think regular people are starting to get fed up with tracking?
