Most Inaccurate Episode Ever

Was listening to this weeks episode of This Week in Google on TWiT.tv and beleive I heard more errors than I can remember ever hearing before, three of them in rapid succession.

  1. Jeff conflated the still living management consultant Tom Peters (author of In Search of Excellence) and the deceased Professor Laurence J. Peter (creator of the concept named the Peter principle).
  2. Then Leo and the group were thinking that an advisory rule about hot tub temperature limits was a law. AFAIK it isn’t a law, the reason that many manufacturers follow the advisory is due to either real problems they have experienced or requirements from their liability insurance providers.
  3. The last thing was that Leo claimed that Raspberry Pi’s where susceptible to the recent round of processor flaw security problems. They aren’t, see Eben Upton’s post for details.
