Latest GWC Content

Modern Geek #74: Taxes and Pennies

Canadia time! We discuss Juan’s online-tax-filing woes, and take a look at Canada’s retirement of the penny, discussing the impact from a consumer standpoint, and wonder at the round-to-five-cents coding nightmare most point of sale software must now be facing. We also revisit the discussion of the Surface Pro after receiving some great feedback from […]

GWC #360: Superman ’78

We give a long-overdue visit to 1978’s Superman: The Movie, appreciate the film’s cinematic quality and inspiring John Williams soundtrack; discuss the permeating Christian allegory of the story; and cheer for Margot Kidder’s funny and feminine-but-not-treacly Lois Lane. Plus, we run down the Week in Geek, squee over the mysterious and dangerous-looking Benedict Cumberbatch in […]

FitSmart #44: Defining Results, Part 2

We continue our discussion of all the various results available from diet and exercise plans and how to match your desired goals to a plan just right for you.

Modern Geek #73: Buy No More, 23G <> 64G

We discuss the closure of numerous Canadian Best Buy locations (without knowledge of the staff!). We (sorta) lament the passing of Stickam. We marvel at Microsoft’s ever-worse marketing plan for the Surface with the release of a 64G model–with only 23G usable.

GWC #359: The Next Generation of Old

We briefly revisit Star Trek: Generations, finally appreciating its place in the Trek canon and wondering why we had overlooked the significance of Picard’s family — and loss of family — for so long. We take calls that touch on the power of pink, the time-travel potential of the airplane laser, and the less-than-sexy reality […]

FitSmart #43: Defining Results

What exactly does someone mean when they say “my diet and exercise plan gets results?” We dive into all of the various “results” available (both good and bad) and examine what it means to match up various sets of results to best meet your true desires and goals.

Modern Geek #72: Cloud Printing, IE Ad Fail

We have some fun with the latest IE commercial, which seems both apologetic and nostalgic at the same time. We talk through Google’s Chrome-based cloud print system. We note the (almost unnotable) iOS 6.1 update. We wonder if the sun is setting on the universal remote. We discuss Netflix’s potential new profile system. And we […]

GWC #358: Living in the Future

We jump straight into the buzz now that it’s confirmed: J.J. Abrams will direct Star Wars: Episode VII, due in theaters in 2015 and starring much of the original crew. We walk through what the project might look like, speculate which EU areas the film will cover, hope for strong female characters, and anticipate a […]

FitSmart #42: Artificial Barriers

We all make “excuses” for not doing what’s necessary to achieve our fitness goals. Maybe it makes more sense to think of them like artificial barriers; we face many “real” barriers, ranging from current fitness to time constraints, all of which come together to form the “envelope” in which we can achieve. Why add additional […]

Modern Geek #71: WiFi, Remotes, and RSS Readers (Oh My)

We confess to some of our tech hoarding problems (and solutions). We talk about the difference between crappy and excellent WiFi routers. We laud the new, revamped Harmony remote website and configuration system. We go over some of the recent updates to the awesome Press RSS reader app for Android. And we ask some listener […]

GWC #357: Sean Gets to be Debbie, No Death Star for U.S.

This week as we re-ignite the Disney princess discussion, Sean reaffirms the impracticality of staving off the tidal wave of pink and weighs in on the fun of wearing a sparkly headband while playing backup for a three-year-old rock star. And, we run down the Week in Geek, get a glimpse of the new FX […]

FitSmart #41: Withings Scale/Lifting for Purpose

We discuss our experiences with the Withings WiFi-enabled scale and body fat device. We identify the difference between lifting for strength, lifting for size, and lifting for endurance/power. And we run down the top things you might want to know if you’re headed to the gym for the first time (or returning after a long […]
