Modern Geek #88: Streaming vs. Owning, Windows Naming Disaster

Do you prefer streaming or owning your media? We tackle the question from a couple of angles, arguing both sides in order to better understand the question and market. We also discuss Leo Laporte’s recent frustrated rant about the Windows naming scheme. Could their Win RT/Win Phone/Windows 8.1 naming debacle scuttle the Surface Pro, despite [...]

Modern Geek #87: Smartwatches, eWallets, and 4K TVs

We take a look at the current status and future of three up-and-(maybe)coming technologies: smartwatches, electronic wallets, and 4K TVs. We also take a first look at the recently-release Google Play Newsstand, which combines RSS feeds, magazines, and news searches into a single stream-style reading app. We lament the passing of WinAmp and ponder the [...]

Modern Geek #86: OS Blowout, Skype Woes, New Nexi, and WANBox

We enjoy Windows 8.1′s fixes and discuss what the update means in terms of Microsoft’s (surprisingly functional) positioning of Windows across the tablet and PC market. We run down Steam OS and consider its potential in the connected home. We round up some of the most recent OS X Mavericks troubles. We study the specs [...]

Thor 2 This Weekend/Crossover Nov. 19th

We loved Thor’s Shakespearian tale, and — like you, we suspect — anxiously await this Friday’s sequel, Thor: The Dark World. But we’re doubly excited to hear that the new movie will splash causally across Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. as well, starting with November 19th’s episode, The Well.┬áIt doesn’t look like any of the movie [...]

It’s been a month between Modern Geeks, and Chuck and Juan deliver a bonus-length episode!

Modern Geek #82: MPD, XBOX One

Juan and Chuck continue their deep dive into deploying Raspberry Pi’s for home use, this week getting a music server going using the open-source project MPD. They also take a look at the XBOX One (Juan?) announcement.

Modern Geek #81: Rasplex and App Updates

Juan’s moved into his new place, and has discovered yet another use for a Raspberry Pi – as a Plex media frontend using Rasplex. Chuck and Juan also take a look at some of the recent iOS app updates.

Community Update

As you may have heard via the Modern Geek podcast, after the recent GWC meetup we experienced a significant multiple-item gear failure in the GWC studio. It disappoints us, of course, but we can’t complain. Some of the gear we’ve been using to produce the network’s podcasts is over 10 years old, and we’ve been [...]

Modern Geek #80: Pi for All Seasons

Chuck and Juan take a look at some practical applications for the Raspberry Pi, including a low-cost print server and a unique take on a home audio solution. Also, we discuss some recent community feedback.

On Trial: Dredd

There are some movies, books and television that are summarily written off. The global hivemind passes judgement and somehow we all know, “Nope, don’t bother…that isn’t worth my time.” Given the absolute amount of media out there to be consumed these simply pass on without a second thought never to be seen again. I am [...]
