Ep102: Tell me less!

Jun 1, 2016 | Podcast episode

In this episode: In this episode Mario visits the Walt Disney Family museum, we talk about researchers suing FitBit, special Star Wars soundtrack vinyl featuring holograms of a tie-fighter and the Millennium Falcon, and Captain America made the world gasp and it had nothing to do with Chris Evans.

This past week, Cal Poly Pomona researchers claimed that FitBit’s PurePulse technology is “highly inaccurate”. Fitbit posted the following response:

“What the plaintiffs’ attorneys call a ‘study’ is biased, baseless and nothing more than an attempt to extract a payout from Fitbit. It lacks scientific rigor and is the product of flawed methodology,” the company said in the statement. “Fitbit’s research team rigorously researched and developed PurePulse technology for three years prior to introducing it to market and continues to conduct extensive internal studies to test the features of our products.”

The study claims that the heart rate monitor can be off by as much as 20 beats per minute. Heyzen and Mario both use FitBit devices and feel that they’re not as off as the study states after Heyzen took his own pulse and compared it to the readings on the FitBit during walking.

Do you have a FitBit? What’s been your experience with it? Let us know down below.


Mario visited the Walt Disney Family Museum and had a great experience visiting for the first time. This is the multiplane camera that we talked about in this episode:

Here’s a short video about the camera itself:

Walt Disney was definitely ahead of his time with the piece of technology.


We love the interesting way that the hologram appears while the vinyl is spinning. Check out the video below showing how it was made:

Looks like this is two different discs for collectors.

The following image blew up the internet just about a week ago when The First Avenger uttered words we thought weren’t in his vocabulary: Hail Hydra.

Whether this was a stunt to get more readers or a setup for Cap being a double (triple?) agent, it definitely got the comic world talking. What are your thoughts on Captain America’s turn? Leave your comments down below.

Until next time! °o°
