IGN Tech Fetish

The full Tech Fetish crew assembles to revisit net neutrality briefly, then we move on to discussing options in Justin's hunt for a new TV, an update on the Rosetta lander's status, and storing Bitcoin in your hands (!).

(For those curious about that Amazon image we mention, here's the link.)

Alaina, Justin, and Mark Ryan gather this week to take strong stances on Net Neutrality (and the possibility of broadband internet getting classified as a utility), chat about the ESA's landing of a spacecraft on a comet (and this pretty neat .gif), and boggle over Doritos-flavored Mountain Dew (ew), among other things.

In the aftermath of last week's #overthetop vs. #throughthegate face-off, the Tech Fetish crew discusses just how much of a shocker the flap vs. no flap question was to most everyone, as well as the Amazon Echo, Google's Inbox app, and 3D printed pizza. It's not as, shall we say, over the top as our last podcast, but few things are.

Alaina (@morphingball), Justin (@errorjustin), Mark Ryan (@mrsallee), and Alex (@alexlroth) chat about Alex's iPad Air 2 review, getting an Xbox One for $250, Amazon's hardware news, and underwear. Yup, you read that right.

We're back!  This week Alex, Alaina, and Justin convene to respond to reader letters, as well as talk about sci-fi come true in the form of hoverboard technology (well, in limited capacity), science at work (no cake, though), and yet more smartwatches, among other news bits.

After being bombarded with a pile of news by Google and Apple this week, the Tech Fetish crew gathers to discuss the new Nexus gadgets and iDevices coming for our money. (Sadly, Justin leaves partway through and imprints the fear of abandonment upon Alaina and Mark Ryan.) Also, we discuss a very...interesting...development in burger technology.

It's a full house in this episode: Alaina, Justin, and Mark Ryan are joined by Alex Roth and Ryan McCaffrey to chat about Tesla's new D-variants of their Model S, what Apple might reveal this week during their event, Microsoft's upcoming release of Windows 10, and more. And in case you were wondering...Fresca returns.  Sorta.

Justin, Alaina, and Mark Ryan talk about Apple's iPhones, the usefulness of the Apple Watch, Vizio's new affordable 4K TVs (spoiler: Justin doesn't care about 4K), Oculus's new Crescent Bay prototype, and much more.  Also: fresh blood alert!

Justin, Alex, and Mark Ryan chat about a $1,400 motorcycle helmet, iPhone 6, and Google's plan to use sharks to shut off Syria's Internet. That last part probably isn't right. But we've brought back weird science news!

The new Oculus Rift hardware, Development Kit 2, is in the office and we've all had a go. We discuss the improvements in the new hardware, the persistent problems, and whether or not the average Joe should buy one now. We also discuss baby monitors and procrastination. But not at the same time. Don't worry, the baby is well-cared for.
