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.

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 19 – Kate Upton Riding A Horse Suggestively

We welcome our first guest, Dan Vadeboncoeur: co-host of the Media Nerds Podcast, instructor at Red River College, and fellow Manitoba Podcast Network member.

We compare Facebook, Twitter and Google+, and make some predictions about the future of celebrity Periscopers.

We discuss the impending Winnipeg Free Press paywall and the changes happening to traditional print media in favor of digital media. We cover the growing podcast medium and try to figure out “is podcasting the new blog?”. We also cover the fun of podcasting live on location across various locations here in Winnipeg.

We all cover the massive budget that free-to-play mobile games have now a days, with impressive a-grade celebrities starring in their commercials.

Episode 17 – Apple Earnings, Apple Watches, and Google Fi, Oh My

Ben goes undercover, impersonating a Rogers employee, and infiltrates (or “accidentally” party crashes) a Samsung Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge launch event. He learns about how to sell the new phones to customers and other secret details. Mark starts the tech talk by going over the latest quarterly earnings from Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Facebook.

After briefly dipping our toes into the Apple watch, we move on to discuss Google’s Project Fi – the new MVNO wireless service that’s trying to disrupt the larger networks. From pricing to cellular coverage, we cover everything you need to know about the new service from Google.

So grab your mechanical keyboards and install your “I am Rich” apps, because this episode is going to Google-fi you!
