SyrupCast Podcast 97: Pizza Pockets, antivirus software and freedom

On this episode of the SyrupCast, co-hosts Igor BonifacicIan Hardy, Patrick O’Rourke and Jessica Vomiero, are joined by Josh McConnell, tech producer at the Financial Post. To start off the show, the crew delves into Wind’s recent rebranding to Freedom Mobile and what that means for the telecom.

Next, in a rather confusing series of events, VentureBeat reported that Equibit, a Toronto-based Blockchain security startup, named controversial tech figure John McAfee as its Chief Security Officer. Not long after, this claim was disputed by McAfee himself via Twitter. The MobileSyrup team was able to reach out to McAfee to get to the bottom of it all. The podcast crew wants to know, where was the disconnect?
