This week we have all our hosts back. After we talk about the weather (it’s cold), we do our favorite TV shows. We all agreed on one show (have to listen to find out ). Then we are on to our picks. Melisa wants to relax so she picks a Massage Chair L Track by Motion Products. Next Mike and Elisa are getting antsy for Spring. Elisa wants a Monterey Oval Gazebo. And Mike wants to see some sun so he picks a Rion Sun Room.
This week we are down to just 2 hosts, but they’re the best hosts (just ask us). After moaning about the weather we actually have things to talk about. First Mike and Melissa talk about remembering things and how we cope (hint : Mike wants to be a cyborg). After we discuss a few other subjects we get to our main subject, Geeky Pet Gifts. After that we discuss Netflix’s Black Mirror : Bandersnatch and what devices support it.
On this noteworthy episode, Tim Robertson, founder of the Stoplight/MyMac networks and creator of Geekiest Show Ever joins to celebrate our 300th episode. We talk about the history of the show and its inspirations and, as always, we do veer off in other directions. Topics discussed are: video, pinball and arcade games, brain farts on other podcasts that we can’t quite remember (Google ain’t it wonderful?), women on the internet, and just some general reminiscing.
Track Talk episode with Tim’s Def Leppard review.
Mark Greentree’s Subjective Sounds
As an experiment we record the podcast in Facetime, let us know what you think. We did have some bandwidth issues so some of the audio is choppy in spots.
Elisa (the last hold out) finally upgrade to Mojave she tells us about her experience, likes and dislikes.
From there we talk about Apple Music coming to the Amazon Echo. This then turns into a discussion of the different music services and which ones we like and why.
For our picks we start with Elissa who wants a Accuvoice AV200 Tv Speaker with hearing aid Technology. Next Mike wants to listen to music and maybe hear better so he was looking at the HUB: HiFi Wireless Earbuds. Finally Melissa wants to closely inspect things so she picked the AmScope SE400-Z Professional Binocular Stereo Microscope.
It’s time for our Annual Geeky Gift Giving Guide.
After we talk about the weather Melissa tells about her experience about getting her MacBook fixed and Elisa tells about her iPad battery which then lead to a discussion about Apple Care and extended warranties.
For our picks Melissa wants to get crafty with a cordless Dremel tool. Elisa want to explore her heritage world wide with Ancestry.com. And Mike just wants to watch TV with Insignia 32-inch 720p HD Smart LED TV- Fire TV Edition

This week we discuss Mike’s new Google Home Hub and compare it to the Amazon Echo Show. Mike says the Home Hub makes a really good picture frame (that’s not an insult, really). From there we talk about what we want in a digital assistant then on to different music services.
For our picks this week we start with Elisa who wants to mesh things together with the eero Home Wifi Mesh system. Then Melissa wants to get musical with Yamaha P45 88-Key Weighted Digital Piano. Then Mike just wants to play around (so what’s new) with the Microsoft Xbox One X.
