Braindead TechCast EP 114: Time to start stocking up on aspirin and Gravol

So are you ready for the tsunami of 140 character messages that are going to be going at you non-stop once Twitter, and all the Twitter clients, start using the real-time User Stream API?

It might sound like a great idea but in practice I think it will be a far different experience.

Braindead TechCast EP 99: Damn smudges

What started out looking like it was going to be a day of hell for both Sean and I turned out to be pretty good given that we were both pretty tied up with other things for the majority of the day. Of course the tech blogosphere came to rescue with some fun things for us to talk about – which is a good thing.

From 10 year old press releases to some of the best shows on television, and how they could end up costing you more money than you think, we covered a wide range of subjects.

Braindead TechCast EP 89: And Lo Did The Wozniack Did Say

Finally we have proof that our fascination and obsession with social media is because we are addicted to the cuddle drug. Yes folks the warm and fuzzy does exist and Dr. Love proves it.

Hotels may have actually discovered a way to use social media and its tools in a ways that both they and t heir customers come out winners.

But none of them will cross the finish line before horse-boy.

Then we have the matter of Sean channeling some evangelical minister – very worrisome folks – even borderline scary.

Braindead TechCast EP 88: A new-age electonic version of Amway

Just how fast can stories change in the tech blogosphere?

Well before we started the show the big story was about Twitter being able to pull your mutual friends from Facebook and create a Twitter list with them in it (as long as they had Twitter accounts as well). Then came word that Facebook was possibly blocking Twitter from doing this but then that changed to be that Facebook was working with Twitter to fix the blocking problem.

And of course this is the big subject of the moment. *YAWN*
