This week’s podcast is more METAL than a Judas Priest with Anthrax trapped in an Iron Maiden. First off, Jeff Roberts discusses how Google’s (s GOOG) book scanning was deemed legal by the courts. Then Signe Brewster talks about the quickly evolving 3D printing landscape, which is moving beyond plastic and into metal and other materials. Finally, Alex Colon gives us his take on the Jawbone UP24 activity tracker.
