Beer & Bytes episode #23: Acquisition of Yahoo; savings for millennials; Foxtons and VR
Was the recent acquisition of Yahoo a smart move for Verizon and where will core Yahoo users go next? This week the Beer and Bytes team examine the sale of one of the world’s best known content providers. The team also meets one of the founding members of new savings app for millennials, Moneybox, which is due to launch any day now. Charlotte Oates, marketing and product manager, talks us through the tech behind the app and how Brexit might affect fintech in the UK. In this latest episode we also ask ourselves whether we’d buy a property only ever seen through a virtual reality headset, following news that estate agents Foxtons has started to showcase its homes through VR. As always, there is beer. And a bit of chat about sharks in Brighton. You should probably just listen and it will all make *some* sense.
Beer & Bytes is recorded at Heathman’s Road Studio, London. Thanks to Hugh Fothergill & Tim Morris for recording & sound help, and thanks to Barney Wilkes for music.
