After some discussion of the weather (Mike’s finally happy with his), we talk about Mike’s new podcast. He talks about the creating and submitting his new creation. We also examine using Twisted Wave , Blog Touch Pro , Simplenote, Box.com and Anchor.fm for his tablet only production of his podcast.
Then we look at Apple’s announcement this week. We were not terribly excited about it but, your mileage may vary.
From there we move on to our picks. First Mike, in keeping with his tablet podcast production, wants the iPad Mini. With the hope of spring to come Elisa wants a new grill. And Melissa just wants to sit down on a new loveseat.
After Mike complains about the weather and Melissa and Elisa torture him with theirs we move on to a variety of subjects. First we discuss the upcoming Apple event. Then Elisa tells us about her ongoing saga with Spectrum. From there it morphs to streaming services. We move on to Melissa tells us about her new Apple Watch and has a helpful hint for anyone upgrading to a new watch. Elisa regales us with her weird Do Not Disturb thing. Finally Mike tells about his wife’s new car and trying figure how to make it easy for her to play music.
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.
We start off by having Mike and Elisa lamenting the end of summer. They then move on to lamenting the end of Apple printing service. They discuss some possible alternatives and the experiences with other services.
The topic changes to the upcoming Apple event and what has been said about and what they think might come out of it and if there’s anything that we are hoping for.
From there we move on to picks. Elisa wants to spin some vinyl and want to broadcast it around the house so she picks the Vinyl Pro Set by Sonos. Next Mike wants to spin some dirt so he picked the Troy-Bilt Rototiller.
