There’s a blizzard in Boston and people are threatened with prison time because of it. Evernote goes wild. Star Wars may be its own best revenge. We love Chilly Feesesteaks. Boston has beans, Vermont has Maples. LAPD shoots newspaper delivery women. NRA thinks background checks might be ok. You should totally 3D print a semiautomatic rifle that can last for two rounds before it explodes.
Keeme joins Scott to talk about UFOs in the desert, Half Assed Hot Rods, video podcasts, and more. Seriously. Just listen.
Scott went to the dentist. People are stupid when it comes to money, and even stupider with debit cards. Peter has a new (replacement) iPhone, and restored it from an iCloud backup. John McAfee gets all defensive about his technical acumen, and proves his superiority by posing with two women. There’s a place you can buy really drug influenced donuts called Voodoo Doughnut. Stephen Hawking is British. Common courtesy is dead, and you should never contact people after a first date. It’s dead, Jim! And is Siri getting worse?
Feedback! We got feedback from a former fan of ours regarding our End of the World episode 7. John McAfee is back with some surreptitious keylogging activities. Peter installed an SSD drive, and Scott read a book called Cryptonomicon. Also Peter admits to signing up for dodgeball. Scott rages against bad software, some of it from Google, some of it from Apple.
It’s the End of the World as we know it, and we feel fine. Top 10 Ways the Universe will End. Also, Scott and Peter are fascinated by their new hero, John McAfee. And Peter will miss Mark Zuckerberg.
Scott is joined by his friends Patrick and Keeme. One lives in Alaska and works on the pipeline. One lives in the desert of Arizona and doesn’t work on the pipeline. We talk about cycling encounters with moose, opening second run theaters in Eagle River, Alaska, recording stories of yourselves for all to hear, crazy Arizona windstorms, how oil companies can be greedy, what iPads and mobile phones they like, and more.
WAY MORE listener feedback than EVAR!!!!1! Peter and Scott talk about Sales people. Sales people use Excel and Powerpoint. Scott proposes sales person cage matches. Scott mocks the Libertarian Republican for being way too kind and gentle. Peter has a Roomba because his cat tracks litter, and it loves rearranging furniture. Scott’s cat has long hair that gets cat poo stuck in it. It’s gross. Peter and Scott drink the commitment punch.
Peter grinds French Roast. Scott pontificates about the Apple rumor mill and the iPad mini. Peter writes a brilliant marketing email. Did Dan Rather lie on purpose? Peter spends a day in tech support hell, tells the tech support people THANKS!!!!!1!, and refers us to Leeroy Jenkins. Scott wonders how domain registrars could possibly be any less secure than the one he dealt with today. Lance Armstrong is a reverse Bill Gates. And LOTS of listener FEEDBACK.
Roofers, not roofies. Servers with no hard drives. Rigging crews who clean and move small roll around tool carts. Listener feedback from BEN! Breath mints. Applications that don’t show up in Spotlight. A very small windows virus that deletes all your photos. It takes a week to format your hard drive, if you’re an Apple Genius. FileVault 2 does whole disk encryption. What is the best martial art for a girl to learn to dropkick a male human being into the next galaxy?
Scott and Peter watch in amazement as small children bike past them at 25 mph. Siri tries to open the Gresham. Autocorrect embarrasses parents. Peter has a shoulder injury. Pakistani food.
