CanCon Podcast Ep. 33: Is the the future of wearables your ears?

Returning from Apple’s tech release event in San Francisco, Patrick O’Rourke rejoins the podcast to tell all about the latest Apple gadgets and updates. Is the removal of the headphone jack and the release of wireless headphones all it’s hyped up to be?

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) kicked off over this past weekend. Alongside the festival, TWG and 88 Creative released a chatbot named TIFFBOT to help you decide what film to go see. The CanCon team interviews itself to learn the motivations behind the project and designing the right tool for the movie-going masses.

Tune in as CanCon’s podcast crew – Erin Bury, Managing Director of 88 Creative, Patrick O’Rourke, MobileSyrup Senior Editor, Rob Kenedi, TWG’s Entrepreneur in Residence and host of the amazing #smallrooms podcast, and Douglas Soltys, BetaKit Editor in Chief – discuss the challenges of developing chatbots and the direction that Apple is taking mobile tech.
