Episode 22 – Ben Makes Twitter Comedy

Ben was given full reign to make up this entire episode, from research to writing and the theme. He thought long and hard about topics and how the episode should flow and came up with an idea – Twitter Comedy!

…Then he had an epiphany (appiphany?)

Instead of asking people on Twitter, he did various searches on Twitter, polling people’s thoughts and ideas to discuss with Ben. We go from talking about weird inventions, movie ideas, app ideas, childhood memories to weird tweets about the number 22 (this episode number) and everything you could ever think about being Canadian.

Ben calls this segment and new approach to content, Ben Takes to Twitter. Who knows, if it is popular he might make it a recurring segment of all future episodes.

Warning – the discussions go in rapid fire, and they get pretty silly.

The Incoherent Podcast: Episode 21 – WWDC 2015

We’re back talking entirely about Apple’s 2015 WWDC conference. We discuss everything that Apple threw down, and go over the OS X, iOS, Apple Watch, and Apple Music announcements. There was lots to cover on this one folks, so we have a silly time going on longer than normal! It’s WWDC 2015!

Ben, as a solely-Android person, gets confused by iOS and OSX while Mark makes great points about the future of music when we cover Apple Music.

So grab an iPhone, record your sun exposure on HealthKit, read about the effects of sun on skin through Apple News (in split screen) and pay for some sunscreen with your Apple Wallet – because this episode gets hot *Ben puts on his shades, CSI-style and jumps off the El Capitan mountain on a parachute*

Ben’s sexy Google Photo video auto-generated by his photos and videos taken when he went to Vegas (editor’s note: it wasn’t Winnipeg Mardi Gras, but Vegas, and there are no dancing ladies – close enough):

The new Android M features, the Android Wear improvements, the new apps, the huge list of upcoming tech, and much much more. Ben feels a need to purchase a Google Cardboard set, while Mark digs into how Google is gathering data from more sources than ever.
