#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
More
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

1/30/2018
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...

#353 - CES 2018

1/16/2018

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!

Throttled and Frozen – SD – EP #352

1/9/2018

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:...

#350 - Stolen Blockchain

12/24/2017
More
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
More
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
More
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...

12/5/2017

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

#346 - Yay! You're Screwed!

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...

#345 - Remember The Jericho

11/21/2017
More
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...

Bad Achievement Unlocked – SD – EP #344

You know that feeling you get when you can't tell if someone is trying to make a fool of you or not? Yeah, Facebook's new idea sounds kinda like that! They'll help block your nudes if you send them nudes. Don't they claim not to allow nudes anyway? The new iPhone X is the greatest thing Apple has made in a long time, so long as you don't destroy it utterly by simply using it. Twitter thinks that maybe it's time to rethink the idea of offering a status badge that says "Hey, we endorse...

#343 - Better Than That!

11/7/2017

Things are not great over at TripAdvisor right now, what with them sending people to get attacked and then trying to hide it. The Pixel 2 XL is having an even worse week, if that was even possible. And Apple may have strung the iPhone 8 out to dry! Headlines: TripAdvisor deletes rape warning for Mexican resort Google Pixel 2 XL units apparently skipped QA Seriously, what's up with the Pixel 2 XL QA process? Microsoft employee installs Chrome after Edge fails him Honeywell getting in on the...

Good news everybody! We're one step closer to that state-run media and propaganda stage we've all been looking forward to! Hooray! Verizon has reached a whole new level of horrible, Facebook has decided that even the content creators don't matter anymore, and Consumer Reports has decided blanket statements are "good enough" for reviews. Headlines: Pixel 2 XL has some screen issues So no one wanted Snap Spectacles? Shocker Kaspersky lays all their cards on the table Facebook decides to...

#341 - Pumpkin Spice Moose

10/24/2017

So, in a bold news flash that surprises no one at this point, it turns out that nothing is really secure! Your RSA token? Not really secure! Your wifi security? Nope, not even close! Photo site used by teenagers? Honestly, we're surprised that didn't get hacked FIRST! It's time to embrace digital nihilism as we simply accept there's very little we can do to secure ourselves if we keep using other people's products. Oh, and don't let Zuke get anywhere close to yoga pants. You've been...

#340 - Asian Long Division

10/17/2017

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...

#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...
