Apple Beats: What is Tim Cook-ing up at Apple?

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Last week I was in New York for TechCrunch Disrupt. I got some great videos and tons of awesome footage of Times Square. However, when I returned my back decided to rebel from carrying 40 lbs throughout the city. Its been a tough weekend of recouping. Before the back siezed up I was able to hit some Friday garage sales with my brother. We hit an ultimate score – 2 totes full of in-box Spawn and Star Wars figures. We got it for a deal and are figuring out the next steps. If anyone wants to buy some, let me know. Last night’s TWIGG had a lot of great news. The Glass teardown found the device cost $150 to make – $200-250 with software and R&D. We had to ask why Glass was still $1,500. HP sent me 2 new devices...

Is Office for iPad Too Late in the Game?

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS This week it was about getting work done and planning the next moves. Sometimes the moves just come to me. Will be heading to NAB from a last minute sponsor, so making plans for Vegas again. Last night’s TWIGG brought David Esquire to the show. He’s been using Glass for photography.

Apple’s Safari SSL Bug – What You Need to Know to Fix

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS After a couple weeks of travel and lots of great video, I took the week to regroup and make sure everything is posted. Still some CES content that has not gone up. This episode is not live this week due to time constraints. Meetings in the AM pushed things back. But some great stuff coming down the pike because of it! Adi has been doing a fantastic job at the helm of the Gaming side of Geekazine. Thanks for helping out! If you would like to write, simply drop me a line! I got some opportunities this last week, including a chance to go out to the gun range and capture it all on Glass. I talked about it last night on TWIGG with Luke Wallace. Hotline – 608-205-4378 – geekazine (at) gmail.com Download the audio version Subscribe to the podcast...

Time for a New Credit Card System?

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Getting ready to head back to Vegas for Tech Cocktail. The folks at Veeam have stepped up to help with airfare. Now I have to plan the week of getting some startup interviews and more. Just as the CES live broadcast videos have been wrapped up. Welcoming a new blogger on Geekazine. Adi from MHF Tech will be posting about games on Geekazine. Of course, I’ll be highlighting his articles on the show.  Last night’s TWIGG had Libby Chang from Wearables Weekly on the show. We had a great event talking about Luke Wallace’s new Glass frames. I am waiting for my v.2 Glass to return from Google. It’s FAWM – February Album Writing Month. While I don’t usually do 14 songs anymore, I am going to try my best to do as many as possible. Some of them might just become...

Hey! A New iPad Air! Apple Event Brings Mavericks, Mac Pro

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS I got my 5th pair of Google Glass last week, but they didn’t come from San Francisco. I talk about it all on TWIGG as Luke shows off the Texas state fair. Got a Fitbug Orb in the mail, so I’ll be testing out my health for the next couple weeks. Crowdfund has taken a lot of free time – iPad365 has been on hiatus until now (because I probably should talk about the new iPad, right?) I’ll be speaking next week on Google Glass, so the show may be a day late.

Netflix courts Cable. Roku, Apple TV Should do the Same?

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Monday was a long but productive day. At Midnight, we launched the TPN at CES crowdfund – a crowdfund project for our trip out to CES. I talk about why we need it. Last night on TWIGG.TV we talked with Kathi Browne about Google Glass and Healthcare. It was a great hour worth of content about what the medical profession is planning for Glass. I’m also in the hunt for a new computer. Its time to get a newer processor so video can be processed faster.

Twitter’s IPO: Is it Facebook IPO all Over Again? Geek Smack! 6th Anniversary Episode

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS 6th anniversary of the podcast is upon us! I started this show back in 2007 – named “The Show”. Fourth pair of Google Glass is going back to Google. This time, the camera died. I talk about it on TWIGG. My EmpireAvenue account is at 112 but more interesting is the numbers watching and listening increased. Crowdfund for CES is looking great – we’re planning T-shirts for backer levels. Getting closer to launching the new website to bring more validation to podcasts. I’ve been trying out StreetJelly in the last week – a website where you can listen to musicians playing live. You can even tip them tokens.

Why Apple, Google Bested Coca-Cola as Top Global Brand

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Was proud of iPad365 – not only on “New and Noteworthy”, but also on “What’s Hot” in Technology. I broke down and joined Empire Avenue. My stock jumped to $58.51 in the first two days. Does that mean I’m rich?  Spent the weekend relaxing – on Sunday we did Tandem Kayaking on Lake Monona. Not an easy task at times. Last night’s TWIGG we talked on XE10 and the upcoming GDK for Google Glass. I also tried Google Hangouts with Q&A. While I liked how it worked, in the end the quality wasn’t there. Not sure if the problem wasn’t as much Google as it was my Macbook Pro. I really need to find a way to upgrade my computer so that doesn’t happen again. CES planning is underway. This year – we’re doing a Crowdfund! Expect it to start Oct...
