Ep. 174 – Recap, Trivia, and More!

TOPIC:  It seems like just last week we were making predictions about 2010 – but already some of them are coming true!  Not only do we recap some of the bigger news stories of the last week and how they relate to our predictions, but of course Jay Garmon‘s Geek Trivia doesn’t fail to stump us yet again.  If you’d like to take a stab at this week’s, drop a line to techtalk@wrlr.fm or leave a message at 847-984-0847!

In the movie 2010, the sequel to Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece 2001, what cameo movie roles did Clarke and Kubrick play onscreen?

Tune in next week for the answer!

And of course we wouldn’t leave you without some great cool sites of the week:

  • Runner’s World What to Wear? – Some days it’s cold, and other days it’s really, really cold, so how do you know what to wear if you’re a runner like Mike?  Check out this site and find out!  They do a good job of sticking to what you need and laying off the marketing too …
  • Gizmodo’s Guide to Gadget Gift Extras – Not sure if those 12′ HDMI cables are worth the cost?  Thinking of getting a dock for that iPod you got from your sweety for XMas?  Check here first and make sure it’s a good idea!
  • Smashing Magazine’s Monthly Wallpapers – These beautifully designed and useful monthly calendar wallpapers are a great way to gussy up your desktop for the new year!
  • Network Lights – Go oldschool on that network monitor by having your capslock and numlock LED’s flashing in time to your network activity!  This little app takes care of it for you for free!

All that remains is the podcast only song of the week, which is the wonderful Academia by Sia!
