Farhad Manjoo is the resident tech and social media mores expert for online current affairs and cultural publication Slate. In addition to penning articles answering age old new media questions and modern hypotheticals, Manjoo also plays host on a SlateV web series about smartphone, web, and social media applications.
I know what you’re thinking. “Between The Daily App Show and Revision3’s AppJudgement I already have much too much of my time dedicated to original web series showcasing and explaining how to use third party applications on my iPhone. There aren’t enough minutes in my day for one more!” But I’d argue Manjoo’s concise, straightforward, and kinda funny explanations of the latest and greatest applications available, hand model cohost, and Lamda Lamda Lamda persona make Killer Apps one to watch.
Slate V releases Killer Apps episodes once every few weeks. In the latest, Manjoo and his trusty professional hand model sidekick (I like to think it’s this lady above the wrists) review augmented reality apps that read and translate foreign languages for you. ¡Ingenioso!!
