Modern Geek #68: Apps, Maps, and Fraps

We run down some of the apps we’ve look at lately, including MetroTwit (Juan’s new-fav Win Twitter client), Google Maps for iOS (now that we’ve had some time to use it), and the Wake ‘N Shake alarm clock (featuring a GlaDOS sound-alike not to be missed).

Modern Geek #54: One Year In: Back to School 2012

It’s our one year anniversary of Modern Geek, and what better way to celebrate than to go over this year’s must-have productivity and educational apps (the very same topic from Modern Geek #1). We look at what’s changed in the last year, and give our recommendations.


Modern Geek #53: Travel Apps, an Awesome Tech Backpack, and Twist

In honor of Juan’s upcoming trip, we take a look at one of the coolest tech backpacks we’ve seen: the North Face Surge II, which features tons of pockets, dedicated laptop and tablet storage, and a build worthy of a K2 expedition. We review two awesome travel apps: FlightTrack PRO, which provides flight tracking and […]


FitSmart #12: Motivations and Self Image

We dive deep into what motivates us to go back to the gym each week and ponder how self-image can both motivate and de-motivate. We also take a great listener question about food tracking apps and on-the-road food options.

We discuss the Kindle Fire, the fact that it’s the best selling Android tablet by far, and what this means for the non-iOS tablet market.

Live Meetup Q&A This Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 8:00 p.m. CT

In the first week since we opened RSVPs and registration for the 2012 international meetup we’ve seen almost as many RSVPs as we had in all of last year. Clearly it’s gonna be a kick-ass time, as defined by the fact that some of the coolest people in the world (GWCers, natch) will be there. […]

Sneak Peek: The Star Wars BluRays w/iPad App

Though the BluRays don’t release until September 16th, Twentieth Century Fox released an iPad app which they claim offers “a varied sampling of bonus materials featured in the collection including never-before-seen content sourced from the Lucasfilm archives.” Admittedly, it seems that all the cool stuff in the app will be available on the BluRays when […]
