Jack Bauer 24 intro recorded by Ben at CTU headquarters.

Mark Mruss is a computer programmer by nature and by profession. He’s written Android apps, win32 apps (we called them applications back then), apps in python, and even a website or two. He is currently fascinated by all things mobile. He likes computers, beer, and his family (not in that order).

Episode 23 – Rumors of Our Demise

Rumors of our demise have been greatly exaggerated, or we’re back after a 6 month absence with lots of interesting technology related commentary, or we’re back after 6 months and we talk a lot about a bunch of stuff and it’s pretty good.

Apple, Google, Microsoft, Android, the gang’s all here, give it a listen and let us know what you think of our fun ramblings.

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.
