TOPIC: Dave and Mike get to talk to Jeff Trachsel of NextWorth this week, and discuss how NextWorth can help you trade up (or at least get rid of) all that tech junk you’ve been collecting!
We also talk about Macintosh’s malicious malware that has descended on fully 600,000 of you supercilious, overconfident apple fanboys! (And yes, Mike does take a load of special joy out of this occurrence). Between that and Google glasses discussions we wind up missing out on Jay Garmon but he does send along a trivia question to keep us thinking for a week or two:
What is the first recognized software Easter egg — one that’s 45 years old?
We also get some great coolsites of the week in:
- DailyDislike – Exactly what it sounds like … tell people what you hate today!
- White Pages Neighborhoods – See who lives next to you! Phone numbers, addresses, and kids names … a little creepy perhaps but ultrauseful!
- Search EBooks – Great place to find downloadable copyright free e-Books and documents!
- HypeMachine – Great place (and app) to find new music!
The podcast only song of the week is “Mister LittleJeans” by Runaway.
TOPIC: Dave’s back and just in time for us to have a great show! Not only does Mike get in a nice rant on how not worth living life is without a smart phone, but Robert Wesley of NextWorth.com joins us for a fantastic discussion of what you should do with all that old – or gently used – tech … including finding out if any of it is really worth anything at all!
Of course we’re able to find time for Jay Garmon who gives us this timely question:
What medieval poet and author is responsible for the modern day celebration of April Fool’s?
There’s just enough time to squeeze a couple cool sites in, and here they are:
- Target.nextworth.com – find out the closest Target store to you that will handle recycling of those old phones! Works as well, or better, than just going straight to www.nextworth.com
- Google Sites – Easiest free way to create a quick website ever … complete with templates and help!
And we end with the podcast only song of “Jah is Real” by Burning Spear!
