Ben goes undercover, impersonating a Rogers employee, and infiltrates (or “accidentally” party crashes) a Samsung Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge launch event. He learns about how to sell the new phones to customers and other secret details. Mark starts the tech talk by going over the latest quarterly earnings from Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Facebook.
After briefly dipping our toes into the Apple watch, we move on to discuss Google’s Project Fi – the new MVNO wireless service that’s trying to disrupt the larger networks. From pricing to cellular coverage, we cover everything you need to know about the new service from Google.
So grab your mechanical keyboards and install your “I am Rich” apps, because this episode is going to Google-fi you!
