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).
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…)
Apple… That’s basically all we had time for in this weeks podcast. A hint of Microsoft and Google (and of course RIM) but with WWDC happening this week, we stay pretty focused on what Apple’s future for it’s iDevice line is. Hit the link for all your TFA needs.
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…)
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…)
Well, well, well! Looks like Microsoft has just unveiled Windows 8 and, surprise! It has a tablet-y interface! A certain author here was hoping that Microsoft would go all in with this version and it looks like the company is definitely looking for that niche audience who still wants a full OS/Tablet Hybrid. While Walt continues to grill Steven Sinofsky, keep it tuned in here for a better look at the future of Microsoft and the unveiling of Windows 8!
