IGN Tech Fetish

In this last episode for 2014, Alaina, Alex, Justin, and Mark Ryan gather to discuss Microsoft's upcoming Windows 10 event, Skype's pretty cool new translation preview, the Curiosity Rover's latest findings on Mars, and a very weird stain on Justin's pants. (Yeah, that happened.)

With Alex and Justin both out (slaaaaackers), the remaining diehard Tech Fetish crew is joined by a guest from the IGN ranks to discuss rocket-engine-powered cars, the FCC's new requirements for what constitutes "broadband," VLC for Android (FINALLY, YOU GUYS), as well as playing Pong at street corners, gizmos that let you shoot fireballs, and jetpack stunt flying, among other things.

NOTE: This episode was recorded last Friday, but due to some mic level issues that needed fixing, we're posting this today.  Sorry about the delay!

The Tech Fetish crew gathers to discuss reader letters on password security and battery life, as well as news of the week - it's all about impending doom from robots and space. Oh, and space exploration, too. (The latter part's pretty great; the former, not as much.)

This week we're breaking from discussing tech news to gab about something on all our minds: Black Friday shopping. (Well, okay, that'd be Alaina and Alex.) We cover the best deals out there, while also mixing in some talk about general bargain-hunting tips, men's fashion, and some amazing apple juice.

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.
