Magic, Mobile, and More

Where in the world will Fish Fry take us this week? First, we’re going to a take quick stroll by the most recent Raspberry Pi news, then it’s on over to some “Magic Finger” technology being developed by the Universities of Toronto and Alberta, and then we’ll drive into EDA land with Bill Neifert (Carbon Design Systems- CTO). Bill is going to chat with me about Carbon Design Systems’s recent collaboration with Samsung, how $4 million dollars in venture funding comes into play, and what exactly Carbon is going to do with all that cashola.

I have a brand new nerdy giveaway to throw your way, but you’ll have to listen to find out what it is and how to win.
