Braindead TechCast EP 128: Please pick up your jaw

Most of our listeners will already know of our two theme nights, Moronic Monday and Techmeme Friday, but tonight we are starting the third of our theme nights. On this, and future Wednesday Sean and I will be bringing you some of the coolest things we have found in tech for the previous week and sharing them with you.

We are really looking forward to doing these shows because as much fun as picking on people and stupid tech news might be, we wanted to also celebrate the good stuff out there.

Posts referred to in tonight’s show.

And the coolest item of the week:

Braindead TechCast EP 127: But Steve, it’s Apple

In some ways this could have been a Moronic Monday show given that we ended up talking about some really stupid things that everyone is getting all excited about even though we’re not sure why. A bonus for Sean was that he could tell me that it’s all because it’s Apple – which seems to becoming his favorite saying.

Oh and we have a bonus for you tonight.

Braindead TechCast EP 126: Moronic Monday’s has a brush with cool stuff

Sean may hate Moronic Monday’s because of the damage he says it does to what remains of his brain but I think he’s lying. In fact I think he lives for Moronic Monday’s, just like our faithful listeners do but we’ll let him keep believing that if it makes him feel like he is in a safe place.

Good luck with that human business

I like Chris Brogan. He’s a smart dude who writes some pretty clever stuff that sounds really good – like this

But what you’re selling is more business. What you’re selling them is more connected business. What you’re selling them, one hopes, is human business.

Problem is, business isn’t about being human. It’s about (con)vincing us to buy their product or service. That’s the reality and all the Twitter chatter in the world and all the Facebook fan page fawning isn’t going to change that.

It’s basic business 101 – do whatever you have to in order to get the chumps to buy the goods.
