This week on CommandN, the crew gets together to celebrate CommandN’s one-year anniversary! Amber and Jeff are side by side on Halifax harbor doing the show and talking the talk (I’ve been on that boat!) and introducing the show this week. Mikey makes his appearance later in the show, but the show kicks off with a new contest; send CommandN your geekiest photos and you might win a gorgeous 19″ Dell monitor courtesy of PriceCanada!

Diving right into the topics for the week, TextAmerica makes a 180-degree turn and decides it’ll continue to offer free moblogs for its users and new registrants, Rocketboom goes boom, Microsoft finally decides to allow Office 2007 to support the open document format, new geekly entries into the Merriam-Webster dictionary. Also on the show this week is an interview with David Cronenberg, a ton of tech tips (like how to keep track of your passwords, using various web browsers from Opera to Firefox to IE7, and more) and of course, the weekly web picks.

This week’s Lab Rats brings us back into the lab, and Sean and Andy (and the kitties) talk about how to get your videos and media from your computer to your TV, and the variety of computer to TV technology that’s out there to help you do it, either by connecting your computer straight to the TV, or the use of technologies like Slingbox and Orb and whatnot that help you check on your TV from almost anywhere.

GeekDrome // Episode 33

geekdrome logo

This week on GeekDrome, the same old same old. The crew gets off with a bang talking about An Inconvenient Truth, which everyone should see, and then move into teasers and trailers, like Renaissance, and news that VanDamme will make an appearance in Rush Hour 3, a movie I have no idea why they’re making. Also, rumors of a Lost movie, news that the Silver Surfer, when he appears in whatever movie it’s going to be, will not be Vin Diesel, comics news, and video game talk. All this and a photoshop contest!

twit logo

Leo Laporte, Will Harris, David Prager, Robert Heron, and John C. Dvorak all join us this week for another fabulous TWiT, this week discussing some of the week’s hottest (and not nearly so hot) technology news. Among the talking points for the week are the Google founders’ big private jet and the subsequent lawsuits, the Emmys’ new broadband category and the old media that dominates the category and the new media that’s been largely ignored, the unbooming of Rocketboom, AOL mulling over focusing on its pay web-services and ditching internet access, Apple dumps the eMac-finally an end to the Apple CRT era, Microsoft claims to be readying an iPod killer for the holidays, the end of a linux lab in one Toronto high school, Alienware’s “what the hell” PC designed specifically for Dell, Leo’s blog on Vox, and much much much more!

Another TWiT is in the can!

Among the topics this week are the rise and oh-so-abrupt fall of RocketBoom, Microsoft starts censoring MSN Messenger, the Transformers movie teaser and the leaked photo that Bumblebee will be a 2009 Camaro, a casino complains that a customer’s major winnings were a “glitch” and refuses to pay the jackpot, the story that employees at National Semiconductor that got laid off are told they have to give the iPods they were given the previous year by the company back, tweaking windows XP for gaming, and the creator of Firefox’s thoughts on the future of Firefox and the IE7 betas, and much much more.

On this week’s This Week In Media, titled “Panning for Gold,” which I haven’t totally figured out what it means and why, the Pixel Corps crew gather around the table to talk again, including the triumphant return (or maybe not) of Replay, Veoh’s been sued, the triumphant return of James Cameron to the big screen, and 27 million downloads.

Security Now! // Episode 47

security now logo

This week on Security Now! Leo and Steve are back in the saddle to chat network and computer security, this time on the topic of “internet weaponry,” from denial of service attacks to distributed denial of service attacks to IRC botnets and other creative ways to bring sites down, all the way to legitimate methods like the so-called “Digg effect” or getting “slashdotted.” All this, why people attack sites and build dotnet armies, and how people defend against such legitimate or illegitimate attacks.
