After 13 years, I'm leaving CNET. Looking back on a long career, I can be sure of just one thing: I'm leaving here with a lot of love.
At 1,588, it's the final episode of Buzz Out Loud, the podcast that launched a thousand news stories, arguments, hosts and co-hosts, producers, and good times. We packed the studio full -- Tom Merritt, Veronica Belmont, Jason Howell, Rafe Needleman, Donald Bell, plus, of course, Molly Wood, Brian Tong, and Stephen Beacham...and it's possible there was some Champagne, a little whiskey, some cake, and even a couple of news stories. Oh, and tears. Definitely tears.
On today's show we talk to the guys from Chaotic Moon Studios in Austin, Texas about their Kinect-controlled skateboards and shopping carts and get excited about how they're moving into mind controlled devices. We also discuss the problem with Google's new privacy policies, The iPad 3 rumor roundup and how to make the most of Google+. And finally we take a look at Windows 8 vs. OS X Mountain Lion.
Here is part two of the Gadgettes mega-clip show! This was a lot of work but so much fun to make. I hope it shows.
I promised to make a clips show with the very best moments from Gadgettes, and I'm happy to finally deliver on that promise. With the help of countless fans of the show, I bring to you part one of a two part series! Enjoy!
Just in time to force us all to streaming plans, Netflix announces that its content streaming deal with Starz has fallen apart. Eek. But at least they protected us from the tiered pricing Starz wanted in addition to $300 million per year. AT&T prepares its pro-merger death ray, Dominos announces plans for a pizza delivery joint on the moon (seriously), your responses to our decision to go weekly, and Pastor Luke mans up on Computer Love.
By popular demand, I release upon the Gadgettes masses a comprehensive collection of every single segment drop used on the show.
The Gadgettes need your help with the best-of episode!
Here it is, the mega list of every single Gadgettes episode. Episode 1-67 were recorded before the blog existed and therefore, only the audio file is linked to.
I hope you are sitting, and not standing, for this is in fact the final episode of Gadgettes. Yes, it sucks. But the show will always live on in the archives. Before you start re-listening to every single past episode, enjoy our final sendoff where we (appropriately) cover nearly all of the segments from the show.
