rian and Kyle talk about what tech gadgets they think will make good gifts and tell us what is on their list. As if they made it on the “Nice” list.

See you next year!

James Ran a Marathon

James the Soundguy ran a marathon. It has nothing to do with this podcast, but since James the Soundguy also writes the summaries for the podcast and uploads all the stuff, he can get away with shameless self-promotion such as this.

Kyle and Brian are joined by Soundguy James and they cover such weighty topics as:

  • Is James irregular or just semi-regular?
  • Brian got hit by the ID-Ten-T virus
  • Kyle’s travel diary, hover bikes and massive halls
  • James passes an exam!
  • Brian reveals Kyle’s dirty little secret
  • Getting started on your exam path and how to study
  • Brian gets chuffed-or maybe he doesn’t-nobody really knows
  • Windows S, the new RT?

As an added added bonus you won’t get to hear Kyle’s longest recorded “ummmmmm” (at nearly 2 seconds) because James the Sound Guy edited it out. You’re Welcome.

Featuring:

  • Kyle Rosenthal
  • Brian Bork
  • James Finley

In this exciting episode, listen as our heroes, Kyle and Brian, are joined by their Kiwi friend James and start exploring why Kyle hates airport hotels and exercise. Along the way they discover why Kyle spent a day in Athens. At least what his story is, and why he’s sticking with it.

Along the way, tensions mount as Brian takes umbrage that Kyle may well have taken “The Gadget Guy” title off of him. Don’t miss all the action as Brian shills for Delta, and our merry band of explorers ruminate on the possible tech impacts of the newly-proposed laptop bans on some commercial flights.

Finally, we wrap up with Brian’s thoughts on a micro-projector that has piqued his interest.
