TOPIC: Wondering just exactly how far you can go in your new electric vehicle? Afraid you might not have the juice to get you to grandma’s house this weekend? Bill Frykman from Ford Motor Company comes on air with us this week to discuss how the MyFord Mobile partnership with PlugShare resolves those concerns – and a whole lot more! It’s a great conversation about Ford and mobile tech, and how things are changing today in the automotive world.
Dave “Sparky” Saganaki joins us today, and we even get a few coolsites of the week in too!
- MyFord Mobile – Got a Ford? Get the app and get connected!
- PlugIntoFord.com – Find out everything about all the ford electric vehicles at this interactive site.
- FreebookSifter.com – All the free eBooks available on Amazon in an easy-to-use, rated and sorted interface!
We finish this awesome show off with a special request from my son to play “I Belong to You” by Muse!
TOPIC: Wow! Episode 300 … and what a great one it is too! Oddly enough, our tricentennial goes unremarked, either through excessive humility or rampant obliviousness (long time listeners of the show will be placing their bets on obliviousness), but with Dave “Sparky” Saganaki, good friend Jay Garmon and new friend of the show Alex Knapp of Forbes magazine tech and blog fame, this is an outstanding reflection on the past years of broadcast!
Jay of course provides us with a great stumper for the coming week:
Who was the one (and only) person in history to have ever been hit directly by a meteorite?
With this lineup there was no way to fit in coolsites of the week, but don’t forget to tweet with Alex @TheAlexKnapp! We end with “The Ship Song” by Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds.
TOPIC: That’s right, Mike and Dave are right on top of the Chinese New Years celebration! Plus, Dave tells about LibreOffice’s new offering, and we tell you when it’s OK to poke your friend and when you should just SnapChat them up 😉
Jay Garmon is not actually, physically present, but he gives us a serial trivia session with this question that is just oh so a propos this week for our East Coast friends:
What landmark piece of software was created as the direct result of a blizzard?
There’s even time for a few coolsites of the week!
- Mastaba Snoopy: Remember those “choose your own adventures” from when you were a kid? This is exactly … and nothing … like that!
- Pulp-O-Mizer: Make old pulp magazine covers (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) your own! Lots of fun to get lost in if you’re snowed in this weekend …
We missed the timing and lose a few minutes at the end of the show, but I made sure you get to an earful of the beautiful “Default” by Django Django anyways!.
