So, it turns out pretty much everything is worse than we thought: the Equifax hack, Kaspersky, Samsung, Facebook . . . all of it. Even Google is getting in on the spying action, just hiding it behind a "feature". In positive news, at least we know about all the worst now. Right? I mean, it can't get worse . . . right? Headlines: Cortana gets ears on Skype in Android and iOS It's official: Windows Phone gets a time of death So, turns out Kaspersky may not be so good after all Alexa now gives...

#339 - In Mother Russia

10/10/2017

It seems that Russia not only is good at hacking, but they're also also pretty good at social engineering. And unfortunately, Equifax just can't seem to stay out of the news as things just keep getting worse for them, and for the 145 million people whose data they exposed to hackers. And then there's Google who had an event this week and gave us some new stuff to get excited about and to also joke about. Microsoft releases Edge for Android and gives Android users a new launcherIn Mother...

Equifax keeps surprising us with nonsense, additional iPhone X specifications are released, while the iPhone 8 seems to be having some hardware or possibly software issues similar to the launch of the iPhone 7. Amazon releases a huge line of Echo devices, while Google pulls away YouTube from Amazon's Echo Show without any explanation, oops.

#337 - Schmidt Strikes Back

9/26/2017
More
Schmidty rejoins us as we learn just how bad everything has gotten in the world of cyber security. SEC was hacked, Equifax was evidentially hacked TWICE, CCleaner is run by the people who it says it fights, and Congress has actually called Twitter itself to testify.It feels like all these rats are fleeing while they can still get something good. That's a concerning thought.Headlines:Twitter to report to Senate committee on Russia SEC was hacked and they may have traded with stolen secrets...

So, what can you do with your life if you're the most hated security "expert" in America and you only have a degree in music composition to your name? Well, it turns out not much!The Equifax debacle just keeps getting bigger and bigger and it threatens to consume us all. Not even Apple travelling into the past to bring us a new phone is enough to distract us. Not even Destiny 2, or animated poop, or 1-star Clinton reviews, or Cartman hijacking everyone's Amazon Echo . . . wait, no that...

So, we all know that we're screwed, right? Like royally so? Just making sure we're all on the same page, because we're all about to be on the EXACT same page. That is all.Headlines:Geek Squad decides they don't know anything about antivirus Equifax just royally screwed us all for decades to come But don't worry! Equifax's execs still made money off it!

Trust us; this title is WAY better than what we said on air! People keep focusing on the poor celebrities who are getting their info hacked out of shoddy programs and websites. Don't get us wrong, it's bad for them. But I think we're all forgetting that it's bad for EVERYONE who uses those systems. Also, not so great for the American people in general when those same celebrities have a virtual private army of security compared to our own FCC! We also have some rumors coming down the pipe...

#333 - Stop Sending Nudes!

8/29/2017
More
I'm not sure when people are going to learn, but sending your naked pics to a cloud storage system with a weak password isn't a good idea. It's even worse when you're famous. Also a bad idea is writing a puff piece on the iPhone the same week the iPhone has two massive failures. And probably the worst idea is naming everything under the sun "smart". Look, I know it sounds cool, but maybe it isn't a "smart toothbrush". It's just a toothbrush. Let it go.Headlines:Galaxy Note8 is announced,...

We have guests on this week's show and a Collin returned from the dead! We have news of a huge announcement coming during a rare celestial alignment while Nazis are running amok. Honestly, if you hadn't been watching the news, you'd think I was just quoting the opening of Hellboy to you. Also, huge throwback to Superbad Pimpalicious!Headlines:Twitter bans an Alt-Right. Snowflakes melt in response. Uber reminds people to kick Nazis out of their cars Facebook bans white nationalists....

IIt's like a royal rumble this week as everyone is going after everyone else! Uber is just self-destructing left and right, Consumer Reports is on a throw down with Microsoft, and Google is taking hits from within. Dogs and cats living together, it's mass hysteria! Oh, also, could someone please tell us what Soundcloud is for? Cause we're honestly in the dark on that one.Headlines:Consumer Reports doesn't like the Surface Uber doesn't like disabled people Venture capitalist doesn’t like...

#330 - Too Much Normalcy

8/8/2017
More
Things seem oddly pedestrian this week as we have no news of anything big coming out. Instead, it's a whole lot of little things (mostly court-related) and we can't help but wonder if the shoe is about to drop. Uber may have just swung from "In the wrong place at the wrong time" to full on "Mr. Burns on a bad day" with their case against Google. Also, that part where they force laborers to use exploding cars. The security researcher who may have just saved the internet for all of us was...

No, no, no little one; MS Paint and the iPod aren't dead . . . we just sent them to live with some nice people on a farm upstate!Trump says Apple is building the best factories ever in the USA and it's because of him, but Trump doesn't know what he's talking about. Pokémon Go Fest was such a bust that people are suing them over it. For it's part, Niantic is offering them some free pokeballs and incense. Which, you know, ok whatever. And Twitter's popularity may have stalled out. We're not...

Podcast Episode #328 – A Yuge Difference

7/25/2017
More
There's a part of the podcast this week that you can't hear because Zohner's mic decided to cut out. He says that 2 hours is a huge difference. It's a huge, HUGE difference. Jet lag is a pain.Also a pain is paying licensing fees to a company who likes to overcharge and put arbitrary limitations on use of technology. So much of a pain that five different companies are going into court over it. Also a pain is Russian hackers. Good thing Microsoft has been making ALL the right decisions and...

Podcast Episode #327 – Whales In Space

7/18/2017

It's another week of random news from all corners as we try and piece together what's happening in the tech world. The short answer is . . . not a whole lot.Uber may just get a break from Google after all, but their former engineer might be going to prison. Microsoft has hatched a genius way to get businesses to give it more money, while Apple has come up with a really dumb way to bribe students. And that "hacker" that your aunt sent the warning about (over Facebook no less) isn't real....

Podcast Episode #326 – Driving Through Albuquerque

7/11/2017
More
The news is all over the place this week and so are we. From President Trump offering the babysitting gig to a dingo to John McAfee getting to use his name (but not his face) again, it's hard to choose a theme. How about we just focus on what we're good at: Insulting entire areas of the country. Headlines:Trigger Warning: We talk politics Google Home alerts police to a domestic disturbance Google Assistant doesn’t know geography The EU is still after Google Allo is coming to the desktop...

Podcast Episode #325 – Fractured Timeline

7/4/2017

Something happened while recording this and we may have created a new mirror universe in the process. This other timeline has Collin with a goatee, Zohner dead, and no second Airbender movie. So . . . we might be trying to figure out how to get back to that one.Google wants to sell you everything and take your money, which leaves the EU wanting to take all of THEIR money. Uber's troubles really are all its fault, as new confessions show. And I guess some autistic kids REALLY like Bluetooth...

Podcast Episode #324 – Gettin Comcastity Wit It

6/27/2017

Sure, Zuke and Zohner have been tired before . . . but possibly never THIS tired. One has been out of town on business and the other has been out of town in the wilderness. Either way, it was a surprising week to come back to!Comcast has (probably, most likely) been cutting competitor's lines to drive them out of business, CenturyLink has (probably, most likely) been gouging customers for extra profit, and a Colorado man wants everyone to suffer for his (definite) lack of parenting skills....

Amazon is up to . . . something with their Whole Foods purchase, Verizon probably isn’t up to anything with their Yahoo purchase, and Microsoft announces a new Xbox I’m going to have to purchase.It’s an expensive episode.Headlines:Xbox Scorpio is unveiled as Xbox One X The Xbox "Duke" controller is coming back! iPad Pro is nice and all, but...

Podcast Episode #322 – Those Wacky Chinese

6/13/2017

Last week was Apple's WWDC which means we have a load of Apple goodies to go over! Except none of them seem that new and only one of them looks sorta new. The scandals though, those aren't new at all! Those are classic Apple through and through. Oh, by the way, isn't anyone who hasn't already bought something from you a hypothetical/potential customer? Yeah, Apple doesn't seem to think those exist.Headlines:New Mac Pro comes with an extra "i" Apple is so late to the party, everyone is...

The Silver Age of comics (circa 1956-1970) was a glorious time. It was a time where some of the greatest and most influential comic book artists were doing their greatest and most influential work. With legends like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko teaming up with Stan Lee to create iconic characters, including Spider-Man and The Fantastic Four
