Braindead TechCast EP 112: Those nasty evil file-sharers

Sean and I realized that while everyone seems to be totally enraptured with the every so magical Magic Trackpad released today by Apple there were other things going on as well. From file-sharers destroying the movie business to Twitter, Foursquare and Gowalla aren’t all that they are cracked up to be we dig into the bullshit of it all.

Braindead TechCast EP 92: A bullet to the back of the head

In tonight’s show Sean and I take a look as some of the interesting things that were being talked about, and over talked about, on the web today. Of course we couldn’t ignore the massive shift in power that the announcement from Hulu today will have on the cable companies- they just haven’t clued in yet.

The other news we took a look at was the fact that Google will be returning to China which for Sean and I isn’t news but just an expected fact of big business.

The majority of the show though we spend talking about the whole idea of social search. Hint: we don’t like it.

So sick of seeing this

Geotarding is nothing but a great big FAIL!

And I am getting really sick of seeing crap like this, and Hulu non-viewable videos, in blog posts

Attention bloggers!

Not everyone reading your blog is in the United States of Geotarding Asshole Companies – so rather than keeping on supporting the practice and letting them get away with this shit Just Stop!

Enough already.

Canada heads to the technological bush league

canadarm We have some of the smartest minds in the world working in all areas of computer technology. We were at one time a leader in broadband penetration and a beacon to countries with our hands off approach to the Internet. That is all changing and it boils down to, in my own personal opinion, to two things – the screwed up implementation of patents and copyright as well as federal government with no guts or foresight.

Already we are hamstrung by copyright laws that force services like Pandora and Hulu to deny us access to their services and why – because a dying entertainment industry is enforcing archaic copyright laws. To this end we have a government that is a major player in the secret backroom deals that are going into the implementation of ACTA – the next generation copyright laws that will apply worldwide.
