About this Episode

The boys are back! It's the first episode with all three of us in nearly as many weeks — in it, we talk about: Cineplex's limited-time offer of half-priced movies for a week; Sony's permanent price cut of its VR platform in Canada; Microsoft's Mixed Reality controllers, and how they work without a camera; Apple's rumoured fall event; the Fitbit Ionic, and what it represents for the wearable company; a PSA about Game of Thrones; and how, as one author put it, "data is clearly the new oil."

Speed round:
-Dan is now in the top 0.5% in Egg, Inc.
-Amazon started selling the Echo in Whole Foods on the first official day of ownership
-Apple and Amazon are taking donations for Harvey relief
-An art project in New Zealand is fake recommending tourist attractions
-Spotify might be doing an IPO soon
