Braindead TechCast EP58: Techmeme Friday and The Patent Lawsuit Roadshow

Gotta love Friday’s because not is it the day before the weekend but it is also time for Techmeme Friday’s – the day of the week where Sean and I take time to go over the headlines at Techmeme at the time when we hit the record button.

This week is much improved over last week with more than just Apple to talk about plus our favorite blogger with his own theme song finally shows back up on Techmeme with not just one headline but two.

Oh and Sean and I already claim Silence of the Lambs as the next Twitter movie idea.

Some of the headlines we talked about

Braindead TechCast EP57: Verizon kills its Kin

Yes folks the world did come to and end last night which is why there was no show yesterday. Well actually real life decided that it would be a good time to mess with both Sean and I and didn’t decide to play nice until it was pretty well too late to do a show. Never fear though we are back tonight in full form.

We start off discussing the news that the pricing for the new Microsoft KIN’s was released today and then promptly slaughtered by Verizon as it announced how much it was going to cost to actually use the KIN on a regular basis. Talk about short-sighted.

Sean pouted at this point because he found out that he wasn’t seeing the incredibly wonderfully redesigned Google search results page but I was. It’s okay he’ll get over it.

Finally we poked some fun at Facebook for a security hole that under certain circumstances let people see other peoples live chats. DUH!

Braindead TechCast EP56: Moronic Monday where Sean waxes poetically about farts

The only saving grace in the fact that it’s the beginning of yet another week is that it is also Moronic  Mondays which is when Sean and I look back over the past week and pick out some of the more moronic things that we have run across.

To be sure, last week didn’t disappoint. After all what else can you call a Twitter hoodie that lets flash your Twitter state of mind to everyone around you. Or how about a chicken burger USB hub whether the only thing you need to bring is your own mayo.

Then of course we have the shaving cell phone that can go along with your moss necklace. Not to be out done though one can’t forget the great fart blanket that is being proclaimed as the ultimate saver of marriages.
