Braindead TechCast EP 95: Techmeme Friday and we blame it all on the formula

For those lucky saps looking forward to a nice long weekend this podcast is for you because that is the way that Sean and I roll.

Okay so it’s our regular roasting of Techmeme show but at least we didn’t go so off the rails like we did last night. Close but not quite and we blame the formula for that.

Some of the Techmeme headlines we picked on.

Braindead TechCast EP23: Techmeme Fridays and no obscene bonuses for us

It’s the end of the week folks and you know what that means around this neck of the woods – yes it’s Techmeme Friday. The show every Friday where Sean and I take a rip on the headlines found at Techmeme – every tech bloggers dream aggregator – at the time of the show.

This week I was betting heavily on that Techmeme would be loaded down with regurgitated SXSWi stories; except I was way off as iPad crap seem to be the flavor of the hour. We did manage however to start the show of with a bit of a rant over a $5 million bonus  (not counting stock options) for 6 months worth of work – nice Job if you can get it.
