HDMI 2.0: What You Need to Know

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Laid back week this week. Finally tested out my Google Glass with the band – the packing tape over the power button seems to be working! We’ll see what happens over the next couple weeks, although its getting colder here (a actually had to pull out a jacket today!) Last nights’ TWIGG was an awesome show – next week we will be bringing on a guest and talk about Glass in healthcare. Day in Tech History’s 1,500th episode went out today. 365 episodes a day since Aug 10, 2009. Also continued to be attacked by brute force attackers. Had to increase security. A new website is in the works for podcasters. Something I have been thinking about since June. It will help bring a little more validity to shows. More info coming soon… Hotline – 608-205-4378 – geekazine (at) gmail.com Download...

Could Kevin Rose make a good CEO at Microsoft? 4

Why Kevin Rose Should be the Next CEO of Microsoft

Today, Steve Ballmer announced he will be retiring in 12 months. This was set to a lot of mixed emotion. In this world of high technology, CEOs seem to have a good exit plan – Bill Gates had Ballmer in mind when he retired and Steve Jobs had Tim Cook. Ballmer has no one in mind (that we know of). This could start people worrying about Microsoft’s direction. What Microsoft needs is s thinker. An innovator. Someone that will understand the corporate and consumer ends of technology. That is why I think Kevin Rose should be the next CEO of Microsoft. Why Kevin Rose as CEO of Microsoft? Kevin started early – creating Revision 3, Digg, Pownce and Milk. He has invested in ventures such as Gowalla, Twitter, Foursquare, OMGPOP, Square, Facebook, Chomp and Formspring. Rose took his company Milk and pretty much turned it into Google Ventures where he gets 300 million a year...

10 Songs I Listen To Before Podcasting 0

10 Songs I Listen To Before Podcasting

Podcasting is fun, but sometimes the prep is a pain. We need to keep some calm before the show. So we relax. We meditate. We light up another cigarette and swash back a shot of JD. Whatever is good for the podcast, right? I listen to music – It keeps me in check. Usually I am listening to other podcasts, but when it’s time for mine, I change to something that soothes me. Heck, there are a few times I have been known to run a calming meditation audio before a show. There are some songs that are special in my list. I have listened to them in the past for specific reasons. Before I show my list, I asked a couple Podcast friends what was in their lists. I did get a couple “I don’t listen to music before”. That is OK, too. Here is what I...

WITH – 10-27-08 – Happy Birthday Bill Gates

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSThis week we have a lot of great history, including the event on Oct. 28th, 1955. William Gates III came into this world. Of course we all know him as the funny man in those Seinfeld commercials. However, he ran a little ole company we like to call “Micro.. Micro..” Wait. What is that called again? Interestingly enough 30 years later (1985), Bill Gates put Microsoft up for IPO. Other cool history notes – the DMCA is signed, the first Ball Point Pen becomes available and OpenSocial.

Ye all need to talk like a pirate e’ry now and then. When I woke up this morning, I said “Yar! I need to write a Shanty”. So I did. Since my main Guitar is in the shop, I picked up the practice guitar and strummed out the song. A quick recording and mixing and Voila! A new song is born. Here are the Lyrics if you want to sing along.
