Podcast Only Song of the Week
TOPIC: How much do you figure you’re worth? 2? 2 and a half? How about 3 … BILLION dollars!? Well, that kind of money may excite you and me, but the fellas over at Snapchat figure it’s still not enough … We have a lot of fun talking about that, bloatware, XBox vs the PS4 and other tech news before Jay Garmon comes on with this wing-dinger for us:
What generation of gaming consoles was the only one in history that didn’t have a single entry from Microsoft, Sony, OR Nintendo?
“Kids Talk Tech” this week gets back to it’s roots with a review of “Hungry Shark Evolution” – free and fun for iOS!
The podcast only song of the week this week is “Female Robbery” by the Neighborhood!
TOPIC: Happy new years, listeners! Can you believe we’ve finished another trip around the sun so quickly? And that so much happened this last 12-months? We have a great and quite random discussion about this, talking about top stories of 2012 and spending altogether too much time discussing the loss of Steve Jobs.
Jay EncycloGarmonica does us the service of answering the previous question and provides a new and quite current “ripped from the headlines” trivia question for you:
Why is the US Government looking to rule whether the X-Men should be considered human beings or not?

TOPIC: Wondering what your true impact in the (online) world is? Don’t know how “social” you are? Klout exec Megan Berry is here to clear up any confusion you may have and help elevate you to 50+ Klout ranking overnight! OK, maybe not – even the guys at TechTalk can’t seem to get higher than mid 40’s – but Megan does a fantastic job of explaining what all the fuss is about and why you should be interested in improving your Klout score today!
Jay “Encyclopedia Garmonica” helps boost our Klout scores by providing yet another fabulous geek trivia question:
