MacVoices #22041: MacVoices Live! – Super Bowl Tech Ads, QR Code Security (1)

The MacVoices Live! panel of David Ginsburg, Guy Serle, Andrew OrrJim Rea, and Kelly Guimont takes a look at the Super Bowl ads that had a tech bent, especially the crypto and Amazon Alexa ads. Were they effective? One of them took down the company’s server, and one of them seemed to be open to misinterpretation. Was the use of a QR code a good idea or a dangerous precedent? (Part 1)

Guy Serle, best known for being one of the co-hosts of the MyMac Podcast, sincerely apologizes for anything he has done or caused to have happened while in possession of dangerous podcasting equipment.
