A special 400th episode of This Old Marketing. And yes, the boys are getting up there!

Joe and Robert discuss AI announcements by the US President and Microsoft (launching of Copilot), as well as Google integrating AI into search. For AI to work well, it needs to be working from a correct set of information. Is that the case or should we be worried?

Elon holds a company meeting and talks about X doing almost everything. It's too bad that Apple and Google have a head start in this area.

And Disney buys out the rest of Hulu. Good thing? Regardless, Disney is having operational challenges.

Rants and raves include Joe's new website, IP addresses and Omnicom buying Flywheel.
