CobWEBs Daily Edition podcast: Sean discovers Apple’s plan for financial dominance

cbn1-podpost There’s a lot of stuff being written about Apple’s iPad and whether it will succeed or not. Some are just assuming a slam dunk because it’s Apple while others are beginning to pile on with their opinions about what is wrong with it.

What a lot of the pundits are missing is the stuff that happened yesterday that has far wider implication than just one little ol’ obese iPhone or iPod. I wrote about one of those quiet revolutions over at The Inquisitr earlier today and in our show tonight Sean passes along something that he figured out while on the treadmill (ya he’s an exciting guy <snicker>™).

In effect Apple now has a four quarter money train and press machine.

CobWEBs Daily Edition podcast: Apple shows the world the iPad – an internet ready Kotex

cbn1-podpost Today’s show is a little earlier because none of my fans came to my rescue and saved me from having to talk about the Save The World gift that Steve Jobs and Apple brought down to the masses from the Mount of Cupertino.

So there you have it – me and Sean talking about the Apple iPad. At least we do try and look at it with some analytical eyes rather than the “Oh My God I Gotta Get One” viewpoint that seems to be prevalent at the moment.

Enjoy the show.

CobWEBs Daily Edition podcast: Don’t forget your running shoes

cbn1-podpost On the eve of when the world will change forever as Steve Jobs brings us salvation in the form of some sort of tablet Sean and I spend tonight’s show talking about – Twitter.

Yes folks the mundane and boring world of Twitter and its numbers. Thanks to the crew at The Next Web we have something other than the stupidity surround the non-stop drooling over something not even here yet because this is where I found out about RJMetrics and their released study of Twitter.

Sure we could have talked about running shoes – oh wait .. we did .. oh well I guess there are the Zune rumors that we can fill out some time with.

As well I close out the show with a plea to my fans – the one or two that there are out there.

CobWEBs Daily Edition podcast: Rogers Canada show why Ben Parr is blowing smoke out his ass

cbn1-podpost In tonight’s show Sean and myself start of the week with a look at one of the stupider things published by a leading tech blog that professed to be predicting the next big 4 things that will change our world.

I am sure more than a few people are going – which stupid thing and some days they might be right. The problem with this one is that it has made a total joke out of the value of the ReTweeting system not to mention giving Sean and I a brain hemorrhage each.

Before we get to that we do take a moment to recognize a momentous moment where Robert Scoble wrote a really good post with some ideas that can give one food for thought.
