Storage brands like Western Digital, Seagate, and Iomega are looking for ways to tap into the growing number of consumers who have multimedia files stored on their computers and want to bring them to their TVs without much fuss. FreeAgent Theater HD Media Player currently comes in three versions--two include FreeAgent Go storage drives (either 250GB or 500GB) as part of the package, while a third model is a "bring your own drive" version that retails for substantially less.
After months of speculation, we finally admit it. For some time now Dong and I been involved in a Bromance. There, I said it. Cat's outta the bag! Judge not, lest ye be judged people. That's a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. We apologize to our family and friends for keeping it secret for so long.
Anyway, this Ep. isn't all that long, but it seems we covered a lot. From rude foreigners to Onlive, to Apple (ugh, yes again). BTW, I think Dong secretly loves Apple. He's like that little boy in school who … Read more
We have the power this episode! I feel it. Dong feels it. And soon you will feel it...Can you feel it yet? No? Well start downloading.
Dr. Orgy returns this week with some very sound relationship advice for Dong. Dr. Orgy has been divorced once thought, so seriously, how helpful can this be?
Dong and I give our impressions of the upcoming iPhone 3.0 update that turns into a discussion of Apple culture that probably goes on too long. I would have edited it down some, but, we've gotten some complaints lately about us not censoring ourselves. … Read more
According to Dong, I am no longer gay, thanks to a certain proposal I made last week. Details inside. We also attempt to move past our one-trick-pony routine and take life a little more seriously. Very little.
Is Apple too hard on iPhone developers? Not necessarily in general, but in this case, maybe so. Dong has a lot to say about this. He's like an Energizer bunny hopped up on Red Bull: he keeps going and going and going...
Is Dong moonlighting for Apple? You wouldn't think so, the way he goes on in that last segment, but … Read more
This is our first point five of the new year and boy do we get tangential. I go off for about 5 minutes about the "Watchmen" movie. While Dong just sits there in stunned silence. Unable to utter a breath. Just how I like it.
You know I haven't played World of Warcraft seriously in about a month or so and Dong has canceled his account. I don't know. The end game is just boring for me right now. Maybe when 3.1 comes out that will change. Until then, I've discovered these thing called &… Read more
We get right down to brass tacks in a frank and open discussion about porn. Why you should turn it off, why Dong hadn't even been exposed to it before coming to America, and why you should not have it turned on while listening to this podcast.
Dr. Orgy makes a return to talk about what else? PORN! Apparently Dr. O's psuedo-creepiness runs in the family.
We answer a few listener e-mails, including one about routers that to be quite honest I was not paying attention to. You can even tell, as all I have to chime in … Read more
As an avid Twitter user, I'm constantly trying to find ways to extend its functionality and make it more than a place to converse with friends and discuss what's going on in my life.
Doing that can be quite simple. More often than not, I'll employ "Remember the Milk" or a similar tool that lets me use Twitter to manage my tasks. These tools typically work well and help me achieve my single desire: to fully exploit Twitter and get everything I can out of it.
But in recent weeks, I've realized that I've been missing the boat in a very big way. In the past I've used sites like Bloglines, Google Reader, and others to track prominent sites, and find out what kind of stories they're covering each day. Some are related to technology, while others focus solely on sports. No matter the topic, the RSS reader made it easy to find out what's going on in the world without being forced to go to all the different sites individually.
But in recent weeks, I've realized that each day I use the best feed reader of them all and I didn't even know it: Twitter. Since then, I've used it exclusively as a replacement to my RSS reader and I couldn't be happier. Believe it or not, Twitter is the best way to find all the best news.
People, people, people I'm a firm believer that you should follow everyone who follows you on Twitter. I think it would make the community a better place and by doing so, you actually get more out of the service than by only following a select group of friends.
But I've realized now that it goes beyond just knowing other people. I now know that by following other people, your chances of getting more news, and getting it faster goes way up. And that's precisely why Twitter users have kept me from having to rely on my RSS reader for news.
Remember when US Airways flight 1549 landed safely in the Hudson River? I didn't hear about it in my RSS reader and I didn't even see it on TV. No, first I heard about it from folks on Twitter.
I simply checked Twitter to see what some of my followers were up to and almost immediately, a deluge of discussions on Flight 1549 cropped up. I immediately went to my RSS reader and discovered something I didn't expect:… Read more
Don't panic! The title is actually in reference to Dong's idea of what a punch line for a joke should be. Yeah, Dong attempts to tell an elaborate joke that, honestly, falls flat; however, this does not mean the joke wasn't hilarious. Oxymoron? Only someone who has not heard the episode would think that. So start listening!
At some point during this episode, I actually get Dong to talk about comics and comic book movies, without him turning into an ignorant, negative Nancy. Speaking of comics, I'm writing this having just seen the "Wonder Woman&… Read more
There's been a lot of anticipation about what Amazon would do for an encore to its much-hyped e-book reader, the Kindle, and now that it's finally here we can say that the Kindle 2 is about what we expected it to be. Talk of it being a huge leap forward or going from generation one to generation five in one fell swoop was really, well, just talk.
In reality, the Kindle 2 is a nice upgrade over the original Kindle; yes, it leaves off a couple of key items--most importantly removable memory and a protective carrying case--but it … Read more
Jeff Bakalar makes his return on Fat Tuesday--how appropriate. Justin reveals to the world that he loves Alvin & the Chipmunks, on top of his fascination with Disney music. Disney we can forgive, but really? An Alvin & the Chipmunks cover of "Uptown Girl?" And we figure out that Alvin wears a giant "A" because he's committed adultery.
On today's show, Justin learns some new racial slurs from Clint Eastwood's "Gran Torino." Jeff tells us to check out Mickey Rourke in "The Wrestler"and reveals to us that he once was a professional wrestler known as "The Flying Daisy." In actual news, newspapers are asking the federal government for a bailout. Get with it! Newspapers are going the way of the dodo. On top of that, it's National Pancake Day, so head on over to your local IHOP! Let Fat Tuesday's debauchery begin in earnest.… Read more
