Lungs Beyond Economical Repair

So I this is the second attempt at a co-host show, and the audio actually worked this time, so we will do this from now on. This week, I have on Erik Boyer from NWOCA, he unfortunatly doesn’t have a twitter account I can give out. While you were off grabbing some great deals on this black Friday, we were talking about things ranging from the LHC to the ACTA treaty. Remember to call your senators!

Call for Co-Hosts! You must have Skype, (so that I can record the conversation and put it into the podcast)
If you are interested, shoot me an email, and we’ll talk about it.

Google Pulls an Apple?

Ok, well this is the first time that I have had a cohost, and I think that @mcafee15 did a great job, but unfortunatley recording the skype call with callgraph wasn’t so successful. My apologies for the poor audio, I have a better idea for the next time I have a cohost. We put on a great show, if only in our minds, the audio quality was just too poor to publish. Here are the show notes, if you want to look through the articles that we talked about:

Also,
I said that the image contest would be ending today, but I changed my mind, you have until the end of 2009 to create and submit your design.

Goog & MSFT

I thought I would be talking for a while due to the number of stories I had, I got a little worried. But I kept myself tame, a few minutes spent on Droid, a few on that other smartphone, and then there is Nokia. Then Google vs. Microsoft talk, back and forth, need to work on my transitions though.

The Day of Droid

I have Droid news, and Droid stories, did I mention, a Droid story? You are probably sick of the phone by now, but that was the way that I felt with the iPhone. I talk about some other things as well, so don’t worry too much, just start a little less than half-way through. I forgot to mention in the audio, so I’ll put it here:

Art contest! — Take the current logo (the one on the blog) and redesign it, or you could submit an image for the banner on the blog, of why not both!
