The Failed Attempt at Podcasting March 24, 2012

No Chris this week 😦 but Tyler and I pretty much goof off for 58 minutes… If you want to laugh (which we hope you do) then give us a listen. Be warned though, this weeks episode is VERY NSFW (Not Safe for Work).

 

 

The Failed Attempt at Podcasting 3-24-12

My Time with Windows 8

As some of you may know, Microsoft announced and released the consumer preview version of their highly anticipated Windows 8 this week. Being the avid Microsoft fan-boy that I am I immediately installed it on my PC and my Windows tablet. Hit the break to find out the details on Microsoft’s foray into the tablet market, and my impressions on this bold new direction. (more…)

iCloud Therefore i[insert witty verb]

Apple announced at WWDC that its new iCloud service will be launching this Fall along side iOS 5.  First of all, iCloud, which I just added to my Firefox dictionary, will accomplish a number of massively needed things for the Apple ecosystem.  Many of the new features of iOS 5 and some of OS X Lion will rely on the new iCloud service for over the air backups, apps, music, books, photos, email, contacts, calendars and documents.  Apple is killing its paid MobileMe offering and launching iCloud services for free.  Lets have a quick glance over a couple of key features!

Game Changing? More like ground-breaking, revolutionary, and any other adjective you can imagine!

To say that today’s WWDC keynote was merely “game-changing” doesn’t cover the full scope of what we just witnessed. I haven’t seen a company on a roll like this in a long time. How Apple has managed to not only revolutionize the computer, smartphone, and tablet industry but to single-handedly keep “one-upping” themselves is amazing. Not only have they defined where the bar for smartphones and tablets are, they’ve outdone themselves yet again. Three major product announcements were made today by Apple: OS X Lion, iOS 5, and iCloud. While this blog won’t focus on the particulars of Lion (other than their phenomenal $29.99 price tag!) we will cover the two biggest changes to mobile in awhile. First up: iOS 5. Hit the link at the break to read what’s new in Apple’s latest and greatest iteration yet. (more…)

What Can Microsoft do to Get Back in the Game?


Well it’s come to this. Microsoft has reviled the new version of Windows today, code named Windows 8, to a crowd at D9. As Walt Mossberg hammered Steven Sinofsky on why this seems to be, “the same old Windows” and about how the company has, “missed a couple of things, big things,” we were finally treated to the unveiling of a completely new OS approach from Microsoft. Chris and I were drooling at first. This seemed to be exactly what we asked for from Microsoft a few months ago. But then something happened, something I’m not so sure is good, but it didn’t look bad either. What happened you ask? Hit the break for more info on what’s going down in Redmond. (more…)

What’s been happening in tech the last 2 weeks?

Hey! I didn’t see you there readers. I know I’ve been gone a lot lately and I just wanted you to know… it’s definitely not you! See, with last week being finals week up at the college Chris and I have had no time at all to entertain you with all the great tech news that has broken over the last two weeks. Unfortunately we are not able to get to the blog as much as we would like to during rough times at work and the blog has suffered. The worst part has been that we missed two podcast as well.

Ladies, we know you miss our voices... but we're back. We promise.

But all of that is done now and Chris and I are back! The good news: we are working in the same department now and have more time than ever to talk about the blog and update it. The bad news: it’s been two effing weeks since our last post so in order to update you on everything that’s happened we have to write a long article. Hit up the link after the break to check out what you’ve missed in two weeks. (more…)

Universal search is said to be faster, along with voice-enabled searching, and HTML 5 support. Check the source after the break for more info and a look at the new 9900. (more…)
