SyrupCast

This week, Douglas and Daniel stay firmly in the warm confines of Canadian telcos with an exploration of what's happening at Videotron and Wind Mobile. With Videotron launching a new policy that exempts some streaming music services from counting towards its customers monthly bandwidth, will customers come in droves? Or will the CRTC pounce at the opportunity to ban the process of zero-rating in yet another instance?

And Wind Mobile has reduced its subsidy from $150 to $100 in response to the popularity of Bring Your Own Device? Confusing as it might be, the move points to a decision by Wind to pass along the actual cost of devices to its consumers rather than increasing monthly plan prices.

It's a great show with some excellent debate, so tune in!

This week, Daniel and Douglas talk about the big topic they missed last week: Alphabet. What spurred the move, and will it make Google a better-run company? And why did Google decide to start making routers, anyway?

Also on the show, Star Trek vs. Star Wars vs. Ignorance, and the launch of the Many Smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, the Galaxy S6 edge+, the Moto X Play, and the OnePlus 2. Which one would you take to a deserted island for a month (along with your one significant other)?
