|| Tech predictions for 2009
|| Friday, January 2, 2009
| The JaMoTo Analysts throw down a healthy serving of tech predictions for the new year. Are you ready to rumble?
|| Hormonal beef
|| Monday, January 5, 2009
| In today's episode, Natali offers her hormones to help out Steve Jobs, but she doesn't do it on the actual show, so we have to tell you about it now. The actual news is that the mystery behind Steve's absence from the Steve-note has been revealed: a hormonal imbalance that's causing massive weight loss. Also, Viacom goes wingnut crazy. Hear all about it!
|| CES 2009 Preview
|| Tuesday, January 6, 2009
| How about a little preCES prediction? We talk about the things we expect to see at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
|| That's our title!
|| Wednesday, January 7, 2009
| We're coming to you from CES 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada and it's all about Netbooks today. I'm sure we'll get more buzz about 3D TVs and more later this week. Also, Ellie doesn't like it when we call out the title of the show, but that makes it easier for Jason to find them for his special edition! (And please excuse a bit of distortion in today's episode. Sorry! -Jason)
|| Flip a you-know-what
|| Thursday, January 8, 2009
| CES has officially begun and we discuss a slew of offerings from the show floor, as well as the Steve Ballmer keynote. Also, Tom is offered the chance to record his voice for TomTom GPS devices. That's a lot of Tom!
|| Will the Pre Save Palm?
|| Friday, January 9, 2009
| Palm releases a hot new phone and we ask ourselves if the Palm Pre is the company's saving grace or just destined for failure. Also, Ford trucks get remote PC access, and Lexus thinks it's a good idea to spam you while you are driving! What is this world coming to? Tekzilla's Veronica Belmont sits in with us on today's show!
|| Introducing the Palm Pepporoni
|| Saturday, January 10, 2009
| It's our last show from the CNET stage at CES 2009 in Las Vegas! We compare the battery charging solution for the Palm Pre to a smorgasbord of delicious food and end up hungry for pepperoni. Also, Microsoft fumbles the Windows 7 beta release and Google Chrome gets a Mac and Linux deadline.
|| Mad Molly Mondays
|| Wednesday, January 14, 2009
| Yahoo's got a new chief, AT&T is spamming Idol fans and non-Idol fans alike, and the Storm Worm has been cracked. That's all big news, but the biggest news comes from me at the end of the show. Be sure to listen all the way through.
|| Jazz hands and a testosterone venti
|| Thursday, January 15, 2009
| Leo Laporte joins the cast today to discuss, of course, Steve Jobs' medical leave of absence, the problem with filters (yes, it's the problem you think it is), the future of bendy gadgets, and how to dance like Bollywood.
|| Buzz Out Load-bearing
|| Friday, January 16, 2009
| After much thought and discussion, we here at BOL have decided to change the focus of the show from technology to carpentry. We think you're going to like it. Also, botnets 2.0 strike fear into our collective hearts, new cloaking technology seems awesome until Rafe buzzkills it, and it's my last day as a full-time host on BOL. See you in two Mondays!
|| Self-eating soup
|| Tuesday, January 20, 2009
| We're all predictably aghast at Belkin's fake user reviews, but at least they apologised. Cooley and Tom think netbooks are done, but Veronica disagrees. And finally Cooley accidentally invents self-eating soup.
|| Don't hate the camel
|| Wednesday, January 21, 2009
| Ryan Block joins us from gdgt.com to talk about the high-trafficked Inauguration Day, the SEC investigation into Steve Jobs health, and of course the ubiquity of camels for everyone but me. But I really don't hate camels.
|| Is Brian Tong ageist?
|| Thursday, January 22, 2009
| We continue to debate the idea of moving the Digital TV transition in the US and Brian Tong comes close to ripping on old people. Which I take exception to of course as I am ancient. In the meantime thousands of people in the tech community are losing their jobs which is no joke and there's more hype aroudn the Palm Pre. Should you believe it? We'll tell you.
|| Watch your asymptote
|| Friday, January 23, 2009
| Scientists have redone the math and found that black holes created by the Large Hadron Collider might last a little longer than they thought. But they're still pretty sure the LHC won't kill us all. Maybe check that math once again folks, just to be sure. We also have lots of White House news around the BarackBerry and whether the tech of the President's house is really up to snuff. And Rafe will tell you about how in Russia the system operates you.
|| Talk to the Palm
|| Monday, January 26, 2009
| Oh snap, as they say. Palm has decided to get all vague in Apple's face about patents. Molly's back and she's hazelnut brown. And we determine that tech is, in fact, pretty sucky. All that and more, if you can get your sucky tech to work long enough to listen.
|| Fail whale tale
|| Tuesday, January 27, 2009
| Aye mateys, it is a tale sad and full of woe. It is about Natali Del Conte and the pictures she takes of the unsuspecting public. How will the proposed law to require a clicking-sound in phone cameras affect her? Badly, my friends. Badly. We also kick around the DTV transition some more and IE 8.
|| Beware the suckware
|| Wednesday, January 28, 2009
| An app for Google Android is allegedly wiping SD cards clean, which has some folks shouting malware! Stephen Shankland points out it's probably not malware, just suckware. We also cheer on the House of Representatives for not delaying the digital-TV transition. And Gmail goes offline, which is good news for those with flaky internet connection.
|| Jurassic bark
|| Thursday, January 29, 2009
| Today's show is full of zombies, Hollywood agents, hungry, overeating robots, and cloned dogs. What's not to love? We also find out a hidden truth about Natali that none of us suspected. It involves her ideal pet. In and among all that good stuff we'll even find time to talk about Net neutrality and ISP filtering. Word. (Thanks to Sam from Melbourne for today's podcast artwork!)
|| Gigabyte in your nose
|| Friday, January 30, 2009
| Our resident nasal storage expert Rafe Needleman is on the show to explain some quantum physics to you. Rafe also schools me in why latency doesn't matter to bandwidth but he still won't admit that he need 60 Gbps. And we realize that the only way to save the world is by drinking more whiskey. Time to get to it.
