Update 6:28 pm EST: Starz announces they will cease content distribution through Netflix starting Feb 28, 2012. Today is the day. Did you make the change on your Netflix account?

If you were already a subscriber, then you could hold off until September 1st to make the changes. Well, September 1st is here. So now it’s time to put up or move on. Will you do streaming only?

Say What You Will, Porn Makes the Internet Go Round 1

Say What You Will, Porn Makes the Internet Go Round

Subscribe: iTunes | RSSBrought to you by GotoMeeting – Try GoToMeeting free for 30 days – No CC needed: GoToMeeting.com/techpodcasts. Porn. It’s a 4 letter word. Maybe you would prefer “Adult Entertainment”? Like it or not, this little enterprise seems to drive our lives. We push it away, and it comes back even more. No matter what we do, the black sheep seems to re-arise. Is there any way we can control the beast on the internet? Adult Entertainment has been around as long as people can remember. Whenever there was a medium for it, someone was there to try and make a buck. In the musical “Miss Saigon”, the Engineer used the girls so they all could benefit from American soldiers. Early movies had their share of Back room films. An old, worn out film of a young lady dancing around the stage with no clothes on...

Geekazine and Friends 2009 Predictions

If you like this article, please DIGG it. Thanks! In Part 1, we looked at last years predictions. The numbers weren’t too shabby. This year, we’ve expanded the list to anyone that wanted to contribute. And Contributions I did get. 250 of them. I spent most of Friday night and subsequent morning filtering the list to a couple pages worth of information. We have CEO’s, CTO’s, Marketers, Podcasters and even a Psychic helping us with this years list. Of course at the end of the list I will be adding my 2 cents worth for 2009 on Page 2.  So without any further ado, let’s get started.

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.

When Streaming TV and Movies Go Mobile – Joost and iPhone 1

When Streaming TV and Movies Go Mobile – Joost and iPhone

As a kid I had this really cool TV. it was a Bentley with a 5″ Black and White screen and ran on AC power or 9 “D” batteries. It went all the way up to Channel 83, so if I hooked it up to the cable today, I would get the Big 10 network, MTV, and Disney. Yeah, Black and White, but sometimes you have to go old school. Joost is no Bentley, but they might have finally pulled into a niche here. Last week they made an iPhone app for the Joost service. It’s not the best thing in the world, but it’s better than nothing.
