The guys return after three weeks of being gone due to illness and the holidays. Their main concern right now is how Meltdown and Spectre will affect (and has already affected) their schools because of older hardware. They also discuss some new wireless and AMD technology that debuted at CES and of course, the latest round of Apple related issues.
Matt wants to buy an iMac Pro with one of Chris’s bitcoins (that he doesn’t have anymore). Chris has a busy week and finishes a camera system installation. Matt’s finally done with the eRate bid process and hopes to get some new equipment in soon. The guys gripe about Eduphoria and RenLearn and needing flash to manage things. The show ends with a hypothetical scenario of going back in time and choosing Office 365 over G Suite, then Matt goes to see Star Wars (don’t worry, no spoilers).
Bitcoin hits 20K! Matt is hit by a Google Glitch that kicked most of his Chromebooks off of the wireless network and Chris has his own interesting WiFi issue. Microsoft releases Windows 10 ARM laptops even under the threat of being sued by Intel. Matt got to meet some new people and the guys reminisce about the last time they threw a party.
