about this episode

Will Google win everything, and should they? What the acquisition of Nest could mean for its future forays into hardware. Jason predicts they’ll acquire other hot companies, even Tesla. Plus in the Bing Launch of the Week, circuits in your contact lenses, augmented 3D TV and Spotify as record label?  Molly Wood joins us fresh off her announcement that she’s joined the New York Times, and Liz Gannes, in her first appearance since the departure of AllThingsD and the rise of its successor, Re/code.

And, the Kickstarter that Jason missed, but loved too much.
