#362 - Ill Winds Blow

So the studies are in and, surprise surprise, it turns out the video games to not make you a crazy murder-happy sociopath! I know it's hard to understand, but it turns out that this study has been done before . . . repeatedly. What does, perhaps, indicate that you're a sociopath is when you use the stolen information of over 50 MILLION Facebook users to create a campaign to become President. Oops. Headlines: Violent video games don't breed violence Strava changes their policy on who sees...

#361 - Not In Rhode Island

3/13/2018
More
It's funny how a state that has an anthropomorphic set of male genitals as a mascot for a local college feels that they have the moral high ground when it comes to porn. No, seriously look it up; if you want to look at porn in Rhode Island, you'll have to pay your extortion fee to the state . . . or go to a college game and watch their mascot. Keep it classy Rhode Island! In other wonderful news, Trump has no idea how anything in the world works it seems as he panders to scared,...

#360 - Banal Sandwiches

3/6/2018
More
Hey, do you know what happens when Zuke reads a lot of words, but never hears them out loud? He can't pronounce them. So words like applique, chipotle, and banal come out VERY different than they should. In actual news, if a company says that some accounts may have been accessed, it's just best to assume ALL accounts have been accessed. If Google is suddenly launching a product out of nowhere, it's likely to try and beat another company to the punch. And if you deliberately write malware...

We've got news from the Mobile World Congress and Nokia has got some cool stuff for us! Yeah, I know: we're surprised too! Apple, meanwhile, can't seem to sell enough of the iPhone X to really make it last and Samsung might be holding back on features until 2019. Elsewhere we've got conservatives who act like bots and retweet bots and follow bots . . . surprised and upset that they are getting tagged as possible bots. I'm not judging, I'm just saying that if you don't want to be called a...

#358 - Snapchat User Tears

2/20/2018
More
Don't you hate it when the app you don't really need to use to do something you don't actually need to do makes changes? It makes it just so difficult to do the thing. How can they even expect you to continue on like that? On a slightly more serious note, there's a sneeze somewhere in this episode that I was going to edit out so you wouldn't have to listen to it, but I forgot. So, SPOILER ALERT: You are going to hear me clear my entire nasal passage REALLY QUICKLY. If you're wearing...

#357 - Late Night Zombies

2/13/2018
More
No sleep and no sleep make Zohner something something. There is a ton of news in the tech world this week and none of it makes a lick of sense. It doesn't help that we're recording the episode so late that it might as well be morning. So, um, yeah. Here are some headlines. Headlines: Apple says it doesn't need obscurity for security. We'll see. Apple innovates new types of debt Apple Watch can accidentally detect diabetes Intel is making glasses you WANT to wear Yes, Samsung is releasing a...

#356 - What's A Mac?

2/6/2018

In breaking news that shouldn't surprise anyone, you are surrounded by computers. They are in your car, on your wrist, in your pocket, in your backpack, in your microwave! Unless, apparently, you're an Apple user; then it's all magic, I guess. At least that's the message Apple seems to be trying to drive home with their latest marketing push. "Don't think about it. It's beautiful. It just works, 'automagically'!" In other news, companies that should have nothing to do with making software...

#355 - Nasal Ramen Noodles

More
So, it turns out that maybe (just maybe) the concept of Net Neutrality was actually a good one. And maybe (just maybe) it would have benefited the ISP's as well. And maybe (probably) we are going to witness a hilarious walk back in policies as major ISP's try and get the FCC to stop this boulder they've pushed down the mountain. Who knew?! Also, people are really stupid about which information they're ok with sharing and when they decide to actually freak out about it: Facebook telling...

#354 - The Amazon Drain

1/23/2018
More
Google is having problems as they rush to fix WiFi bugs, while Apple continues to copy Samsung by having phone batteries catch fire. Meanwhile Amazon is looking for the next big city to plunder and the federal government is looking to extort the major mobile phone companies. It's absolute madness all around! Headlines: Google moves to take on Audible Amazon looks to destroy another city, Hunger Games style Google Home introduces WiFi problem into homes Chromecast WiFi bug gets a patch...

Zuke, Schmidty, and Dr Squishy come to you right from CES 2018! We talk about what we saw, what's going to be hot, what's really not, and what we REALLY didn't expect to see up on the second floor!

Well, it’s 2018 and so far, it’s not looking great. Intel’s hardware has a massive defect that’s requiring software patches that throttle performance, GoPro and eero are doing mass layoffs, HP computers caught Samsung’s flu and now their batteries are exploding, and this is just the first 20 minutes of our show! Headlines: Ohh, ISP uses extortion on customers! Yay no Net Neutrality GoPro lays off a significant portion of the company HP goes all Samsung on us FCC continues to try and screw...

#351 - Right In The Apples

12/31/2017
More
To say that 2017 was a bit of a misstep for Apple would, I feel, be putting it lightly. However, maybe it's a misstep they need to have to get through and finally be free of the ever present question they've been haunted with for years: "Would Jobs have done that?" Meanwhile, 'Swatting' continues to be just about the worst thing related to video games. And yes, that includes horrendous wages, rampant sexism, and EA. Just trust us on this, it's still the worst. #totesbigly Headlines:...

It's a festivus miracle! Everyone gets the episode early! Not that it's going to do anything for you, mind you. After all, we're still getting hacked, your information is still getting leaked with alarming regularity, Facebook can't decide how they want us to use it, and Twitter doesn't want you to use abusive language anymore (unless you're the President). So, it's business as usual in the world! Headlines: Kaspersky Labs sues Trump administration Keeper sues reporter over vulnerability...

#349 - No Mac For You!

12/19/2017

Apple has been blowing things this month. It started with software, went to security, and has finished with our very minds. That's right; Apple has launched a couple products that could really change things! If only one of them wasn't as much as a car (or small home, or food for a family for a year). Also, Ajit Pai is an absolute tool. Not for the whole Net Neutrality thing (well, maybe that too). No, he's just a tool in general. I hope Google indexes that. I hope his name shows up in...

#348 - Men Are Ugly

12/12/2017

We've done it. We've found the bottom of the barrel. Of all the stupid stories we've ever had to report on, we've finally found the worst one ever. See, it turns out that if a guy doesn't like a girl, he can threaten to find her home and attack her and that's his right. But if she says that guys are jerks? Oooh boy, is she ever in trouble! Yeah, a bunch of stuff happened elsewhere, but it doesn't feel like it's even on the same level as that. Good on you, Facebook; you've finally broken...

We all kinda knew that Chinese apps may not be on the up and up, but we didn't they would be so blatant about stealing info. Oh, and Google too. Yes, that Google. After all, when you told your phone you didn't want to be tracked, that was just a suggestion, right? Also

11/28/2017

With everyone getting busted for sexual assault, I guess the FCC felt they had to "1 Up" everybody and screwed us all without our consent! Seems about right for this administration. We were probably asking for it, though; flaunting our high speed connections and posting information whenever and wherever we wanted. We probably secretly wanted this. No? No one wanted this? You're telling me 99.7% of the population actively said "NO WE DON'T WANT THIS" and they still did it? Well I'm sure we...

Funny how when it's another set of religious radicals bringing down buildings and peoples it's ok. We're loopy as ever with our latest show recording yet! Zohner is completely out of the loop and Zuke sort of forgot what the internet even looked like, yet there's still some weird stuff going on in the tech world! Like how everyone seems to have a back door vulnerability (not like that). Or how Apple is only a couple releases from really (REALLY) pissing off their fan base. Or how Amazon's...
