No New Episode This Week

Sorry guys, there is not going to be an episode up this week, I made that known in Episode 17. but I wanted to make sure that everybody was aware that I have been working all week at a Model UN conference.

I also talked with my co-hosts from the previous episodes and next week (Episode 18) will be the start of a permanent cohost position! This does not mean that there will not be episodes where I will be doing the episode alone, but it should allow for more humour on the show, as well as some better discussion and debate about the stories.

Looking forward to the change, and we will start in March.

Looking At What Will Come

I’m optimistic this week about some rather scary things, but it’s all the way things are these days. It’s a short show as Adobe takes some heat for being the cause of 80% of malicious attacks, but wants to work with Google on a cross platform solution in the form of Adobe AIR apps for mobile.

No show next week (Feb. 26) but expect Episode 18 to come out in March!

We’ll Edit It in Later

“Notice that we didn’t talk about Valentine’s day being the nerds we are…” My co-host Erik Boyer said this just as we finished recording, Happy Valentine’s Day everybody! Today we talk a lot about social networks, and Google giving you internet. (waits for someone to ask, “Isn’t Google already the internet?”)

The Soviet Russia joke that we decided on was “In Soviet Russia virus uninstalls YOU!”

I talk about the Nexus One update, cyber-security, and then I realized about halfway through that I can’t talk today. Oh and Facebook changed its look, again. Its more vain than a girl going to Prom.
