Some movies Dark Night, Batman versus Superman and Deadpool. TV shows that are on our list include Orange is the New Black, Stranger Things, Narcos, Bloodline, OA and Black Mirror.

We close out with our picks. Melissa goes back to her favorite place and chooses a Black 256 GB iPhone 7 plus. Elisa goes over the top with a geeks favorite beverage machine. An Espresso & Cappuccino machine. Mike carries on his theme from last week and chooses a 60” 4K TV with UHD. Kevin finishes out with a Linux Laptop he is lusting for.

Geekiest Show Ever 242 – Just a Picture of Her Tech Folks

Yes we are back but, we are down a host. Elisa is under the weather in more ways than one and we cover that in the weather report.

We start with a discussion of some things we received at Christmas. Kevin loves his Amazon Tap. That evolves into our different music streaming services. Then back to the things we got or gave our family and friends for Christmas.

Then Melissa finally got her new MacBook Pro and shares with us her delivery woes getting it. After that we try to help her solve the issues she is facing with an upcoming trip. Mike and Kevin give her some ideas to help. Then we discuss battery life of our gadgets because Melissa is a bit ADD about charging.

We wrap it up with our picks. Melissa decides her new MacBook is her pick and if she had the extra cash she would buy Kevin one. Mike decides on a last minute pick is the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. Kevin mentions Mark’s new iPad Pro before sharing his pick of a quiet 2 week retreat into the Mountains of Tennessee. We round out with Melissa’s PSA.

gse241
Two weeks in a row and the gangs all here.

First we start off discussing Elisa’s Apple Watch woes and the support call she is still waiting to be returned. Then Melissa follows up on her research into what it takes to now qualify for using the educational discount from Apple.

Next up is the main topic of the show, geeky stocking stuffers under $30 that actually fit in a stocking. Kevin starts out with Mattel Electronic Football handheld game, followed by Anker portable charger for your devices, then rounds it up with not one but, two flash drives. Elisa’s potpourri of picks starts with a product for Mike and Kevin Poo-Pourri, then moves on to a Stanley screwdriver, a different Anker charger and rounds it out with a childhood toy favorite the Slinky. Mike chimes in with his picks TrackR bravo key tracker, iFixit toolkit and its benefits beyond technology, and a LED Flashlight. Melissa brings the idea of the watchbands from Amazon that are fraction of the cost Apple ones are, then a mug made from Lego and wraps up with her previous mention of the Fidget Cube.

gse240
This week it is Elisa, Melissa, Mike and Kevin. Yes believe it or not the gangs all here. We lead off with update to show recording schedule over the coming weeks.

Kevin starts out talking about his Comcast interaction this week and why he is going to purchase his own cable modem and possibly DVR over the coming months. Elisa and Melissa give some sage advice on what to consider when modem shopping and Mike offers recommendations for DVR alternatives.

We then move on to Melissa’s recent buying binge and all the goodies she has ordered. To make it easier for us to understand, she shares an informative PDF she put together. If you want to see it ask her and she will share it.

We close out the show with our picks as always. Elisa follows on with her pick last week by choosing a Sonos Playbar. Which we then discuss the type of audio it simulates. We move to Melissa’s pick of the Wish App and how it let’s her compare prices and avoid middlemen. Mike has interesting little Drone to fly around and annoy his neighbors and pets. Kevin wraps up with the most expensive pick to date, the Relaxman Relaxation Capsule. If you do nothing else go read the questions asked.
