Ramblings – 6-21-09 – Las Vegas 1

Ramblings – 6-21-09 – Las Vegas

Day Off – Sort of A late Ramblings this week as I decided to stay offline last week. It was a long week and I was playing all weekend. It has been a while since I last took more than 24 hours off a computer, so that is a big feat for me. HP Tech Forum I had a fun time talking and working with Andy McCaskey and Kara Karsten with SDRNews. We had such a blast. We also put forward the mobile interview booth rig. We call it the “MacGyver” rig. Nonetheless, it was connected to uStream and we were able to conduct a few interviews for the event. Check out all the info on the Twitter log at #HPTF. Great to meet some new bloggers: Shane Pitman of Neowin, John Obeto of AbsoluteWindows. We had a great week along with Halley, Tom, Calvin and Rebecca from...

Set Up Your First Podcast – Madison Podcasters Group

Subscribe: iTunes | RSSI started a new group a couple months ago to not only get new podcasters interested, but also have existing podcasters get together and talk about different aspects. I decided that if it’s a meeting about Podcasting, it should be a podcast itself. Therefore, we recorded the first Madison Podcasters Group Podcast. I decided that since this isn’t really a centric item and there is a lot of good information, then it will be added to the Quickcast. It will also have it’s own group, too. The subject of the first podcast group – how easy it is to set up and make a podcast. We talk in general about setting up a mic to a computer and recording it, how much it’s going to cost you and how difficult it really is to set up a podcast. There is some great information out of...

Will Customer Service Suffer from Layoffs?

Subscribe: iTunes | RSSBrought to you by Citrix’ GotoMeeting – Free 30 day trial – No CC needed: GoToMeeting.com/techpodcasts. You’ve been working at your job for years. You’ve made lots of money for the company and are the most loyal employee they know of. Yet, tough times are ahead and the company decides you are one of the 10% they have to let go to stay afloat. It’s a frustrating thing to have happen, but what are you gonna do? Now let’s flip that: You are at your job and survive the cut, but now you are in the position to take up a part of that person who was laid off. As companies like Intel and Google are looking at trimming the fat, it makes the average consumer wonder – what will our customer experience be without 10% of the workforce?

Did the Geekazine 2008 Predictions Come True? 0

Did the Geekazine 2008 Predictions Come True?

Wow. It was about a year ago I asked for people to send in thoughts as to what to expect in 2008. I also made some Technology predictions. But the real question was – How far off was I? This is actually part 1 of a 2-part story. This first part reviews the predictions I made last year and how far off I was. Part 2 will have this years predictions, including predictions from CEO’s CTO’s TechPodcasters and even a Psychic. So without any further ado, let’s pick apart my idiocy from last year: OLPC will have some growing pains. The first part of OLPC will be the easiest. Maintaining the machines will be the trick. Microsoft coming onboard will muddy the water, but they might be able to do things like offer a better support network to third world countries.

LIVE SHOW 10-20-2008 – Chat with Jeri Ellsworth

The coolest thing about the LIVE SHOW is you never know who is going to show up. This week started slow, but that all changed when Jeri Ellsworth showed up. Jeri created the Commodore 64 joystick – 30 C64 games on one joystick controller. We talked about Pinball machines and Video Arcade systems. Jeri was also building a new studio, so we talked about ways to make the room less noisey. Jeri even talked about creating a new video capture system. We also had Art from twoguystech.com, as well as Brokenshovel and husker_fan. All in all another great show. Hour 1

Dell Buzz on Possible Phone?

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS Subscribe: iTunes | RSSGigaOM’s OM Malik talked with Michael Dell about the company a couple weeks back. Michael made some statements whose predictions at times were no easier than determining Nostradamus’ writings. Yet other websites interpreted it in saying that Dell is hinting on making a phone to rival iPhone. While it’s not an impossibility, will Dell get into the market or are they playing on the media to ilicit a response from the public? The Quickcast is brought to you by Gotomeeting.

Do We Need Comcast to Cap Bandwidth Usage? 0

Do We Need Comcast to Cap Bandwidth Usage?

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS Subscribe: iTunes | RSSIt would be interesting to see how much bandwidth I go through a month. Uploading shows, ustream channel, downloading software updates and media content.  All of it legally. There are some that decide to use their internet connection without abandon. They download movies, music and computer programs without legally paying for it. I have seen many downloading 4 to 5 items at a time, which at gigabytes at a pop, it’s a lot of data that passes through. And with programs like bittorrent, not only does it download the items, but it turns your computer into a “Seed” in which others can use to pull from. Comcast is working on a model to cap bandwidth per month. For some it won’t be noticeable. For the internet Zealot, they might find it tougher to work and or play. Do we need bandwidth...
