Modern Geek #28: Cloud-Based OS Access, Computer-on-a-Stick

Juan shares his junk pile adventures complete with the recovery of an original World of Warcraft manual. We note remote-game-purveyor OnLive’s foray into cloud-based OS access, discussing just how much cloud computing has modified the small business landscape.

Modern Geek #25: CES, XBox 720 DVR

We have some fun with a bit of off-site CES coverage followed by a nice long discussion of the XBox 720 DVR possibility and the business decisions that drive it.

We discuss Adobe’s halt of movie/TV Flash player development and what it means to the industry. We delve into the differences between redundancy and backup when it comes to data protection, […]


Modern Geek #5: Voicemail Show

You called, and we respond! Since we didn’t have time to address all your (awesome) calls in this week’s main episode, we added this bonus voicemail show. Highlights: We describe some of the technical magic that automatically strips, converts, and positions the voicemails that come in to all the various GWC podcast. We hear MG […]
