The British Invasion

For Cultivate's first real episode, we were chuffed to bits to be joined by Matt Brian, Associate European Editor at Engadget.  First up was a discussion of Engadget's brand-spanking new site design and an exploration of their current strategy for bridging the geographic and cultural gaps so common in technology journalism. 

We also took a look at the recent rise of bargain-priced, decent quality smartphones, branching out from Jamie's recent review of the Moto G.  What do these kind of devices mean for the industry as a whole? And what does this space look like in two or three years?

Outnumbered two-to-one, the yank bravely gave his quick & positive review of the recent Apple TV update, which adds Yahoo Screen and PBS apps and offered some explanation for why the US mobile industry is so out-of-step with the rest of the world. For anyone interested in that subject, we'd recommend checking out this discussion between Horace Dediu and Benedict Evans

Thank you, Matt for taking the time to come on the show. Listeners can get in touch with him on Twitter @m4tt
