We are just back from a vacation in Tennesee, and naturally we have things to discuss from our journey, along with many stories from our many guests this week.  Dr. Bruce is just back from a NASA Astrobiology conference in Arizona, sharing with us the excitement many in that field are experiencing with all the new Earth type planets discovered around nearby star systems.  Taylor brings us up to speed with all things Apple and delves into his new beat, the exciting ‘end-of-prohibition’ times of Cannabis in the U.S.A. and California in particular. Then Gregory Panos takes us to the National Association of Broadcasters in Las Vegas, where all things media are explored.  His interest in VR takes him to the latest and greates in that arena, such as 4K 3D 360 video with depth perception.  And Mrs. Future shares her pat down experiences with TSA.  Enjoy!

Future News - Conversation with Col Terry on Terrorism after Brussels, Taylor Barcroft on the latest from Apple, including the iPhone SE and the smaller iPad Pro.

Listen Now to Future News 3.22.2016

It’s a sad day when more innocents are maimed and killed by senseless violence.  As we broadcast on a talk radio station, KSCO, it is our responsibility to discuss what is on the public’s mind today, so this is it..Hopefully we have added something meaningful to the evolving dialogue on this core issue of Islamic terrorism we are facing today.

Meanwhile, life goes on, and Apple has announced some juicy new tech worth lusting after.  Even here, however, Apple CEO Tim Cook began their new product announcements with his thoughts on Apple vs FBI terrorism case we have often discussed of late. For our Apple segment we bring on Taylor Barcroft, our correspondent on all things Apple..hmmm..maybe we’ll be able to record, edit, and post this show all on the latest iPad Pro..could be good!

Future News - Blood Moon, Tesla Range Increase, Black Holes Clash, Snowden's First Tweet, Panos VR Update, Taylor on Apple Watch, TV, and iPad Pro  

Listen Now to Future News 9.29.15

Did you see the last blood moon lunar eclipse this past Sunday?  Very special, and a little challenging for those in our bioregion.  Though we did finally see the last bit of it peaking out of mostly cloudy skies, we had a pristine perspective via NASA TV on our iPad..Very sweet!

Did you ever wonder what happens when two black holes collide?  Astronomers have discovered what appears to be a pair of supermassive black holes circling toward a collision so powerful it would send a burst of gravitational waves surging through the fabric of space-time itself. The smash-up is expected to happen in 100,000 years or so, a blink of the eye in cosmic time!

We have two live reports this week, the first from VR pioneer Greg Panos, who chaired a session on early VR at Siggraph 2015 and just attended an Occulus Rift convention.  in a nutshell, VR is coning on like a freight train, arriving in stores by this time next year.  Meanwhile, Apple’s shiny new products are out this fall and we have our Apple pundit Taylor Barcroft present his second segment on them, with a focus on Apple Watch, the new Apple TV and the new iPad Pro.  If you’ve been thinking about  these gadgets, you’ll appreciate what Taylor has to say.  Enjoy!
