Stolendroids 261: FBI Pirates 59:43
It’s always great when the FBI itself starts pirating tools to infringe on our privacy, right? Could they not just fork out the extra $100 or watch a YouTube video on how to do it instead? Collin has returned for a great conversation on how you better upgrade your home every 18 months, everyone wants Yahoo, and how sometimes you get a better game when you steal it!
Stolendroids 262: Canadian Criminals 59:43
If you think the FBI is bad with their power grab, they’ve got nothing on our Canadian neighbors! Google is helping Zuke to remember his goals, grey hat hackers are having a field day with their new business venture, white hat hackers are absolute studs, and Apple plugins support terrorism (sorta).
Stolendroids 263: So Number Two 59:43
Collin is on a date . . . or dead. They kind of blur together at this point, don’t they? Amazon drops news so big that Zuke’s wife called him up to see if he had heard, we gain some maturity in the tech world, and we determine the two types of people who shop at Walmart.
Stolendroids 264: Poor Broke Twitter 59:43
In this episode, the Stolendroids crew discuss some interesting happenings at Twitter.
Stolendroids 265: The AdBlock Godfather 59:43
“Such a nice internet you have here . . . shame if something should happen to it!” It’s a slow week in tech news, but the few headlines that trickle out are still nearly enough to get Zohner to rage! We have AdBlock flexing is muscles, cellphones not causing brain cancer (duh), Teslas becoming the new bio-terrorism response vehicle, and Microsoft looking at shading your patio (not really).
Stolendroids 266: Black Links Matter 59:43
I don’t even know what I’m looking at here. Is this a newspaper? We are running on no sleep at all and so this episode might be a little . . . weird. It’s not just us, though, as the news this week has Google forgetting how to internet, Transformers pulling freight on American freeways, and people using . . . things to unlock their phones. Yeah, this was a weird week.
Stolendroids 267: So Much Google 59:43
Schmidty is back for a podcast host trifecta and we are dealing with an overload of Google news. I guess it makes sense, since they sort of flooded the new cycle but . . . oh hey, look at that; Zohner uses LinkedIn. And Netflix is trolling us? What is going on here!?
Stolendroids 268: Suicidal Robot Workers 59:43
The guys are running on fumes as real-life threatens to ruin everything! Thankfully, we have some pretty weird news to perk us up and keep us interested! The FCC pulls over a car, Marvel collides with Musk, and Foxconn may be needing to upgrade their nets soon.
Stolendroids 269: Manchurian TeamViewer 59:43
So, if TeamViewer claims that the only reason people are having breaches is because they are using the same passwords found in other hacks . . . why are some people having the same issue with two-factor authentication? And if Atari isn’t making games anymore, how are they making IoT things now? And if I made you annoyed by publishing this episode a day late, does that mean I can be arrested now in Europe?
Stolendroids 270: Fat Axl Rose 59:43
Voting for The Podcast Awards is over; thank you to everyone who voted for us! Now we wait to see what happens! So many things have been hacked and passwords stolen, it’s not even funny. Well . . . it’s sort of funny. It’d be a lot funnier if it was only happening to Zohner, but it turns out it’s happening to a LOT more people than that.
Stolendroids 271: Zuke Gets Beeped 59:43
Sometimes you say something that sounded funnier in your head than it did out loud. And sometimes you say you’re going to catch it in post, but don’t. And sometimes you do. This was one of those ones where we did. Everyone is hacked again, but more importantly we can’t get anymore free pizza! AT&T is way behind the times and so is the President’s phone.
Stolendroids 272: Reebacca 59:43
So, I think it’s safe to say things in the world are in free fall at the moment. The tech sector is hurting REAL bad after this week and will continue to do so for awhile. Not that any of it is going to keep us from making fun at their expense, though!
Stolendroids 273: Meerkat Massacre 59:43
We have more headlines than we can cover in a single show and half the sleep we need. Apple may be ushering in 1984 while Blackberry is trying to usher in 2003. Meanwhile, judges and politicians who might still think it IS 1984 are making rulings on technology. So, you know, that’s awesome.
Stolendroids 274: Pokemon Fembots 59:43
There’s a Pikachu over there, so I have to make this fast! Blackberry was still making a phone no one wanted, China is using “ads” to track people, a Ford dealership doesn’t know what copyright is, and . . . holy crap there’s an Onyx I got to go!
Stolendroids 275: Summer Movies Suck 59:43
Oh, you disagree? Where was the internet when this fine specimen dropped? I think the first step to fixing a problem is identifying there is a problem. And in this case, there is no problem; all summer movies suck. They can be fun, and you can really enjoy yourself, but just know that they all suck. In other news, Nintendo has learned how to basically just print money at this point and if you aren’t chasing virtual vermin with your phone then I have bad news for you: YOU’RE the weird one. The statistics only prove it.
Stolendroids 276: Not Marissa Money 59:43
I think it is my new life goal to get paid to specifically NOT do a job. I’m not sure how I’ll ever hit that mark, but I will not rest until I find a way. Meanwhile, China has just found a way to see what we’re all doing online, police use technology and a bit of science fiction to get around the 5th Amendment, and (surprise surprise) France has a problem with a Microsoft product.
Stolendroids 277: El Cheapo Baya Negra 59:43
First off, I know it’s actually episode #277; I have no idea why I say #278 at the beginning of this episode! Apple hits a milestone that really means something this week, while Blackberry releases a cheap phone they didn’t have anything to do with and raised the price! Sure, that’s really shaking up the market. Meanwhile, Facebook admits to trying to shape political news by censoring posts and “selfie addicts” are evidently a thing now!
Stolendroids 278: Poor Lil Brudder 59:43
We’ve got some political intrigue and conspiracies this episode! Also Blackberry (so that’ll be hilarious). And finally, have things really gotten so bad that we are considered press? Really people? REALLY?
Stolendroids 279: Lose The Filter 59:43
As a bit of an upfront warning, there is NO verbal filter this episode. Which is really saying something for us, when you think of all the countries we’ve already offended. We have leaked keys, hacked keys, and deadbolt keys. We have old folks with mobile payment, farm folks with internet crimes, and private toys that violate privacy. We have Facebook and AdBlock entering a war or attrition. And we have Snapchat.
Stolendroids 280: #DurkaDurka 59:43
Yeah, we may get a lot of hate for that title. Twitter might even ban us! France has gone all . . . French on Pokemon, Uber is making you an unwitting test pilot, and the NSA is just off on its own and not listening to any of the rules. Also, can someone please sell Facebook a clue? Historically speaking, they’ll pay a LOT for it! Headlines: Google Duo launches and it’s amazingly simple. Most password scanners fail to notice easy to crack passwords. Shadow Broker hack suggests the NSA was breaking the rules. WHAAAA!?!?! More Windows 10 Anniversary update breaks things without remorse but there’s a fix Twitter: Jihad now? Ask me how! Facebook aims to launch a competitor to Steam Google finally figures out where people want ‘Google Now’ . . . in the Google browser! Uber: Is it still ride sharing if the ride is actually the one picking you up? Verizon has a great plan to make your phone WORSE! Pokemon: Leave it to the French Pokemon: Leave it to . . . Belgium? Zuke’s Favorite: Hot Wheels can probably go faster than your actual car Zohner’s Favorite: Bob A. Fett’s backpack is awesome.
Stolendroids 281: Few Bad Apples 59:43
Apple is having some problems this week as the iPhone 6 determines that it doesn’t like being touched. A bit of a problem for a touchscreen phone. The FBI may have missed its true calling as it turns out that it’s actually pretty good at running “certain” websites! Also . . . France. Headlines: WhatsApp now sharing private info they promised they didn’t have with Facebook HTC sets an impossible goal and surprises no one at failing to meet it Apple is quick to fix security flaws when they happen to activists iPhone 6 & 6s have a case of the bad touch Surprise! Apple phones “break” more often than Android Oh France, you crazy inbred European cousin The FBI is evidently better at running a child pr0n site than the normal webmasters Google to punish people with annoying mobile ads! T-Mobile takes things just a step too far “Epic Games” forum hacked . . . again Want to take over a home? Use the outlets! Mozilla has the one browser to rule them all Android 7 is here . . . if you’re on Nexus But not the Nexus 5 because screw you Zuke’s Favorite: Stop action is the best action! Zohner’s Favorite: Con Man: The Game
Stolendroids 282: Con Crud 59:43
It’s been a long weekend as we try to get over whatever it was we picked up at Salt Lake Comic Con. Seriously people, it’s not hard; warm water and soap. Also, Brittney, we hope you hack up a lung. Zohner may have helped destroy western democracy as we know it, we aren’t totally sure. We DO know, however, that he has ruined Dropbox, Opera, and Google. The man is like Typhoid Mary, but for online security! Headlines: Google falls to #hackzohner Zohner also uses Dropbox, so . . . Zohner is also a registered voter, so you know what that means And finally, Zohner used the Opera Browser Worried that Zohner talks about Trump too, Clinton campaign uses encrypted chat Facebook fired their entire “news” team to put an algorithm in charge The algorithm’s name is evidently “Zohner” Google has decided to ruin Waze Al Capone was sent to jail for tax evasion, but Apple thought they could get away with it ITT Tech will no longer accept students Anker recalls USB-C cables for destroying electronics Logitech makes a mouse Zuke can use while recording Hospitals decide to give people in immense pain drugs and VR. What could go wrong?! Steam now issuing refunds for ‘No Man’s Sky’ Dead or Alive: Beach Vollyball VR is just what we need (for Fox News to be right about video games) T-Mobile alters their “One” plan to make it ever so slightly less illegal Android Nougat will help you collect cats Note 7 exploding Zuke’s Favorite: Phill Lamarr Zohner’s Favorite: The last widget you’ll ever need.
Stolendroids 283: Hipster Courage 59:43
Apple has yet to disclose if the new iPhone 7 actually contains courage, is made from it, or requires it for the manufacturing process. In any case, those Foxconn workers have their work cut out for them! Maybe Samsung built the new Note 7 out of “vigor”, which would explain the current battery issues. In other news, Zohner claims that #hackzohner is not in effect with the recent breach of 800K pr0n accounts, but I think we should let history speak for itself. Headlines: Follow up: ITT can help you with a career in bankruptcy court The USB thumbdrive that can totally destroy your computer The Note 7 now not welcome on US flights Samsung expedites new Note 7’s out after FAA announcement. Presumably shipped by sea Amazon will happily sell you a device that doesn’t “exist” yet This is the iPhone 7 iOS 10 download available September 13 iPhone 7 and 7 Plus pricing No more 16GB option for iPhones New Apple Airpods, to look like you’re using broken earbuds Apple’s BS about “courage” LG to Apple: “Yeah, well we HAVE a headphone jack, and it’s awesome!” Playstation 4 Pro announced Basis writes rubber checks Brazzers hacked – #hackzohner not in effect Mario to soon run on your iPhone Warner Bros. says that Warner Bros. is in violation of DMCA The end of Open Office? Zuke’s Favorite: A new view of hell Zohner’s Favorite: A new TV show for conspiracy theorists
Stolendroids 284: Explody Freebies 59:43
Sometimes we hate being right about things. Especially when it’s about things we like! Samsung is having a hard week with phones that don’t want to remain inert, carriers that can’t return them, and no one knowing what to do about it. iOS 10 manages to either brick your phone or just simply not allow you to use it as a phone. And be careful what internet-connected gadget you put where; people are watching! Headlines: Facebook is doing more censoring Adblock Plus sells out HP buys Samsung’s printer business Samsung phone explodes in little boy’s hands Samsung getting sued over their bombs Samsung Note 7 gets recalled Samsung to mark replaced phones Note 7 recall isn’t going very well The S7 is apparently also a bomb Note 7 software “fix” won’t fully charge the battery Will Samsung remotely kill the Note 7? Samsung may follow Apple’s lead regarding headphone jacks Samsung loses a lot of money iOS 10 update is bricking devices T-Mobile warns against upgrading iOS 10 brings you porn FBI has webcam advice Ubuntu torrent apparently infringes on Transformers? Smart sex toys violate privacy Zuke’s Favorite: The Roast of Captain America (language warning) Zohner’s Favorite: Motorsport Manager
Stolendroids 285: Reddit vs DPRK 59:43
Whenever you feel like your internet is running slowly, just remember; at least you aren’t in North Korea! Turns out they have less actual websites than GTA5 has in game! Google has released Allo, which will help weaken their messaging platform like they’ve always wanted (wait, what?), HP decides to really stick it to people who buy their products, and alarmist headlines try to freak out over something everyone does. Headlines: Group leaks Michelle Obama’s passport just to prove he can Cisco devices still vulnerable to NSA hack Yahoo might be announcing 200M users were hacked Oh, nope: 500M yahoo accounts instead Reddit brings down all of North Korea’s 28 websites Google releases Allo Hello Allo, goodbye privacy Samsung fix violates Google standards HP shuts down third party ink cartridges Developer sues users due to negative reviews and Steam retaliates Google teases new phones Zuke’s Favorite: I get to drive a Warthog! Zohner’s Favorite: Animation Throwdown will cause you to time travel
Stolendroids 286: Called It 59:43
It’s not so much like we’re surprised because it’s finally happened; we’re more surprised it took so long to happen. Google has some exciting news in the area of home wifi with a product they are calling . . . Google . . . WiFi. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ A fully non-explody Samsung Galaxy Note 7 caught fire this week, but don’t worry! Samsung says it has nothing to do with the reason all the other ones are catching fire! Like having more than one reason is somehow a good thing right now. Headlines: No Man’s Sky investigated for false advertising HP is shocked (SHOCKED) people found out about them blocking third parties Google says hello to “Wifi”, possibly says get lost to “OnHub” More info on Google Wifi A replaced Galaxy Note Kaboom goes up in flames. Samsung says new Galaxy Note fires are from a totally new reason. Oh good. Blackberry catches up to reality Facebook also catches up to reality But not before censoring more journalists! Lucky Palmer may be a douche Disney is looking at buying Twitter because, why not? Finally! Glasses for pervs! Plex partners with Amazon to make all your dreams come true Unless you put pirated movies on your Plex, then you’ll probably get jail Motorola still enough in business to lay people off Google may be releasing a laptop killer for twice the price of a laptop! Zuke’s Favorite: Forza Horizon 3 Zohner’s Favorite: Fitbit Charge 2
Stolendroids 287: Apple's Bad Touch 59:43
Things aren’t looking so hot for Samsung . . . which is ironic because they have the hottest phone right now. In fact, it’s so hot, it might actually kill you in your sleep. Perhaps Samsung should ask Apple how to spin this whole thing, considering Apple still hasn’t fixed any of the “Touch Disease” issues they have an no one is complaining! Oh wait, you mean people ARE complaining? Nevermind. Headlines: AT&T stops selling the Note 7 Trust in Samsung fades What did Samsung know? Replaced Note 7 burns on a plane Replacement Note 7 melts in a teenager’s hand UPDATE: Class Action lawsuit sounds like Apple has an STD Yahoo scanned email for the NSA Yahoo shows that they are tone deaf Verizon has an interesting way to bypass upgrades UPDATE: Game developer who sued for bad reviews closes up shop Verizon can’t keep a secret Want a Pixel? Go to Verizon The Pixel will only have some Verizon bloatware The end of 4 Chan? What if nobody buys Twitter? Try your game before you buy it on the Play Store Amazon uses common sense, bands incentivised reviews Facebook launches their own Craigslist . . . finds they didn’t want to be Craigslist! Face-List is sorry that people used their Craigslist service exactly like Craigslist
Stolendroids 288: Contentious Cohosts 59:43
The rage is strong with this one. Samsung is in a really bad spot: Not only do they need to get all those potentially combustible phones back, but now most post services won’t allow them to be shipped! Evidently, your mail carrier doesn’t like being given possible bombs (there’s a law or something about it). Headlines: The Note 7 is no more Samsung will send you a fireproof box to mail your phone back But no one will allow an exploding phone to be shipped Could this be the end of all Galaxy Notes? Oculus disabled Gear VR to keep you from burning your eyes Huawei tries to copy Samsung (forgets to copy the burning part) Comcast gets fined for straight up theft Comcast also decides you don’t really need data anymore Yahoo suddenly doesn’t have a 20 year old feature in email Zuke’s Favorite: Titanic sank slower than the entire movie of Titanic Zohner’s Favorite: 270towin
Stolendroids 289: Nintendo Switchup 59:43
Nintendo breaks the mold and brings us something that could really change everything . . . if there are any games worth playing on it. Facebook hopes you die of cancer, but please don’t post any pictures of it cause it might cause a technical issue. Finally, Comcast is found guilty of doing that thing from “The Firm” that Tom Cruise discovers (you know, that thing). Headlines: Pokemon Go hit’s $600M faster than any other mobile game Whatever Weebly is, it’s been hacked Nintendo changes the game (console) Everything we know about the Nintendo Switch Facebook has a “technical issue” and bans a breast cancer group Comcast gets caught basically committing fraud T-Mobile also was sort of being fraudulent Samsung encourages you to bring their bomb into airports The Note 7 mod in GTA was not well received by Samsung Live in India? Samsung needs you to develop for them Android trojan makes you do stupid things Google Assistant isn’t so . . . smart Razer buys THX Apple releases iOS 10.0.3, to Collin’s gratitude Apple doesn’t want to build a car anymore (thank goodness) Zuke’s Favorite: Lisa Foiles: “You deserve to be murdered” Zohner’s Favorite: How healthy is your battery?
Stolendroids 290: Boring Awesome Microsoft 59:43
Apple and Microsoft have brought out their big guns this week as we have “innovation” galore! The new MacBook Pro brings some fun tricks to the party and the Surface Studio changes the party entirely. And then there’s Google. Poor Google: Vulnerabilities, losing money on fiber, and no one is buying their smartwatches. AT&T has also had a bad time this week as we learned they both have been spying on us AND want to merge with the hated Time Warner Cable. Just in case you didn’t despise them enough for one, you can have the other to bolster your distain! Headlines: Apple’s revenue declines for the first time in 15 years! Apple actually innovates the Macbook Pro Apple fails to innovate the Airpods Microsoft offers to bribe you into a Surface Microsoft announces the best PC you can buy, in the most boring way possible People aren’t buying smartwatches Alphabet’s “Other Bets” aren’t working out so well White Hat Hackers win serious cash at pwn2own 9 year old Linux bug was never fixed. Now in all Android! Vine is dead. Not 6 seconds too soon, either AT&T wants to buy Time Warner (good luck with that) AT&T has been spying on everyone for fun and profit! Intel offers refunds for the B1 watch Cisco can cut pirate feeds of events . . . if anyone cares enough to. IoT devices helped bring down the internet, just as predicted Zuke’s Favorite: Adam ruins everything (about this election) Zohner’s Favorite: The Walking Dead compared to The Walking Dead
Stolendroids 291: Attack of the Cat 59:43
So what does a dirty Scotsman, mandatory state re-education, and a cat’s butthole have to do with each other? Evidently they are all in this episode. Microsoft comes late to the team party with a Slack competitor, Apple is actually dropping prices on items you wouldn’t need to buy if it weren’t for them, and Google is being just a colossal douche. Like, really, just the worst.
Stolendroids 292: Facebook Killing Spree 59:42
So 2016 just keeps getting weirder and weirder, huh? We won’t talk politics, but we will talk about Presidential policy and what we have to look forward to in tech (spoiler, it isn’t great). Also in the news was common knowledge from a few years ago (thank you short attention spans) and Samsung’s attempt to develop an explosive murder-bot/virtual-assistant. Good times all around!
Stolendroids 293: Samsung Autodrive 59:43
According to Zohner, #HackZohner is not in effect with Adult Friend Finder now being hacked. I think we all know the truth though, right? Apple has the stupidest thing you can spend money on, and it’s pretty sure there’s at least a few of you who will buy it. Samsung has decided that with exploding phones, exploding washers, and exploding OTHER phones . . . the next logical step is to get into people’s cars. Oh, and if you are spouting hate on Twitter, you better not be white (cause they’ll come after you for that).
Stolendroids 294: Wewease The Quacken 59:54
Dish yourself up some extra potatoes and try to ignore your slightly racist uncle explain everything that’s wrong in the country; it’s an early episode of The Stolendroids Podcast! We break our own rules and record a new show only 48 hours after the previous one is published, and OH what an eventful 48 hours it was: China has dropped all pretense and embraces their 1984 regime, Office Depot has been scamming customers (like any of us didn’t already know that), and Samsung hits a new low. Like, a really shameful low.
Stolendroids 295: Twit That Faceback 59:54
Want to hear what it sounds like when Zuke has a stroke on-air? How about when Google has one and gives its AI the ability to create its own language? Or when politicians have one and tweet out really bad science (it’s ok, they’re just the politicians in charge of science). In positive news, Netflix is giving us what we all wanted. So . . . not all is lost, right?
Stolendroids 296: The Jagged Pebble 59:54
Pebble didn’t really lie when they said Fitbit wouldn’t be absorbing all operations . . . they just left out the part that said NO ONE was going to do operations. Sorry backers! In other news, we now know why all those Note 7’s kept going up in flames. It’s physics! We also know why iPhone 6s’s were bricking. It’s chemistry! And we know how Facebook is going to battle “fake news”. With stupidity!
Stolendroids 297: Crunchy Knuckles 59:54
2016 is coming to a close and we have some important news for you! In addition to all the celebrities who died, 2016 also saw the death of Blackberry. Yup, we’re calling it; it’s dead. Also this year the death of Yahoo, the death of Samsung’s credibility, the slow death of wearables, and the slow death of Flash. Wasn’t this year fun?
Stolendroids 298: The Last Podcast 59:54
. . . of 2016. It’s the review episode for the year, which means there’s probably a lot that you wished we didn’t remind you of. Yeah, that’s about the best I can spin it.
Stolendroids 299: Into The Breach 59:54
Once more, dear friend. Hack Zohner is in full effect. If you like baseball cards, voting in your elections, and are American then you need to change your passwords because Zohner is those things too! Facebook is becoming more and more a shadowy Big Brother and no one seems to care much. Russia has been sanctioned by the USA (cause that always seems to work). And at least Hyundai hasn’t been working with Samsung on their new fuel cells!
Stolendroids 300: The 300 59:54
It’s the big three-oh-oh for us this week! I know, I can’t believe you’ve put up with us for so long either! This week we see Facebook getting all religious on us, Trump getting his very own wing at the Internet Archive, Julian Assange finally really losing it (and Zuke possibly getting sued over it), and Blackberry really trying to stay relevant in an industry they officially left. Oh, and CES happened. Yay?
Stolendroids 301: All the Pron 59:54
So it never occurred to us who would need to actually go through all the smut on the internet to make sure it was all (ahem) legal. Turns out it’s a very shell-shocked group of people who have PTSD! Great. Good job humanity. Meanwhile, Iran hates the stuff so much that they tried to block it. They blocked it so hard, they knocked people in Hong Kong offline. Great. Good job, Iran! We also learn that the FBI is after all the “stuff” on your Nana’s computer. At least, that’s what they’d have to be after since they’ve contracted with Geek Squad to look into people’s computers and it’s not like anyone ELSE is taking their stuff into a Best Buy to be fixed. Nothing makes sense this week.
Stolendroids 302: Standardized Butt Washing 59:54
You didn’t know it, but there’s a big problem with using a bidet . . . namely that no one knows how to use one! Leave it to the Japanese people to save you from this problem, though. In other news #hackZuke may be starting up (thanks, Zohner), Mozilla has decided that it is now a company that has “something to do with the internet”, and the National Highway Association has deemed Tesla’s autopilot safer than a human. Just not ALL humans.
Stolendroids: Glorious Orange Leader 59:43
We hate talking about Trump. No, we actually do. But where it crosses into the tech world, we’re sort of obligated to anyway. HP’s are exploding this week, but Samsung wants you to know how sorry they are. Mac sales are declining, but the PC market is on the mend. And in the apocalypse that is to come, the resistance will be led by the National Park Service.
Stolendroids 304: The Fall Of Apple 59:54
Apple is claiming that the Watch is doing better than ever . . . but won’t tell anyone what that means. Also, everything is fine with all their other products . . . but the iPad is down 22%. And Google just took their spot at the top of the brand mountain and Microsoft has regained it’s money throne.
Stolendroids 305: Gaga's Killer Drones 59:43
It’s been another hectic week for us. So much so, that there are no favorites; it’s solid headlines! We’ve got news from the world of Lord Dampnut, LG’s worst kept secret (and disappointment), and of COURSE a Samsung factory caught fire. It’s only reasonable that EVERYTHING with that logo on it is now an incendiary.
Stolendroids 306: Kitty Flesh Wound 59:42
A much jet-lagged Zohner chimes in to talk about Apple’s ability to invent and innovate things that already have an entire society devoted to it. I don’t know how that’s even possible, but mark my words, it WILL be how it’s spun. Meanwhile government employees are worried about the government tracking what they say, which should force us to pause for a moment. And evidently working for Google can pay you SO much money, you can effectively tell your boss where to shove it and walk away. I think that just may be everyone’s dream. Special presentation of “Crosby Sweater” by Hilltop Hoods.
Stolendroids 307: Return of AMD 59:43
AMD is back from the shadows and I suddenly feel like the old cop in Dark Knight Rises. “Oh boy are you in for a show tonight, son!” The Department of Homeland Security had some problems this week as they got locked out of their network. Meanwhile, Glorious Leader’s personal website was hacked. Guess it’s a good thing he’s so good with the cyber! Apple’s new home is looking gorgeous and almost ready for business and an Amazon Echo may be witness to a murder.
Stolendroids 308: The Ocho 59:43
Mobile World Congress has come and gone and it feels not a lot has changed. Blackberry has launched a phone to try and capitalize on nostalgia, and it will probably fail. Nokia has also launched a phone to capitalize on nostalgia, and it’s AWESOME. The internet almost died and it was all because of a typo. And you can get a new set up from Dish Network when you get your washing machine to stop exploding (no, really).
Stolendroids 309: The Albino Tipster 59:43
Trigger Warning: Zuke isn’t so happy with the state of things in this weeks episode. Between the Department of Justice deciding that evil shouldn’t be punished, and everyone’s supposed “hero” being an actual extortionist/alleged-other-thing, there’s a lot to be upset about. But hey, at least Google is getting a new office. Right?!
Stolendroids 310: Google Goes For Broke 59:43
Google had a bad week, breaking everything from their competition to the sanctity of your home. T-Mobile may be on a killing spree in Texas. US Navy says gamers may save us from the robot uprising. And McDonald’s might be in hot water with Glorious Leader.
Stolendroids 311: Skynet Road Rage 59:54
Everyone assumes that Skynet will start murdering us with guns because it views us as a threat. In truth, it will just start running us off the road because we keep cutting it off or refusing to yield right of way! It’s our birthday and Zohner is ready to drop from all the partying (work travelling). Samsung gets things rolling with a new assistant and ZTE tries to get us something but misses the mark entirely. Meanwhile, Apple gives us something new but then tells us they didn’t spend too much on it for us. Gee, thanks Apple. You shouldn’t have.
Stolendroids 312: Getting Old 59:43
Times are changing when there is going to be a world without Yahoo and AOL in it! Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Spleasedon’trememberthattimeweblewup8 to critical acclaim. And it turns out that the Attorney General in charge of Anti-Trust enforcement may not actually understand what “anti-trust” IS. Great.
Stolendroids 313: Zohner's Tiny Trumpettes 59:43
Hell has frozen over twice this week as Collin suddenly has more time with a woman than normally possible and Schmidty rises from the grave! The Federal Government was told that no one believed for a second that they could be that stupid. In an official statement, the Federal Government said, “Hold my beer.” and went straight up 1984. Like, they didn’t even try to be subtle! Good thing that they noticed we all saw them and called them on it! Meanwhile, Google has an awesome idea (Home/Wifi Mesh) and a not so awesome idea (fake news that requires you to research news) and Samsung decides to just take all the money from everyone. Even you, Greg. Yes, especially you.
Stolendroids 314: Services vs Ads 59:43
With everything we bring into our home from companies trying to sell online services, it shouldn’t be surprising that we’re now getting ads ALL THE TIME. We have Burger King trying to hijack our home to sell us fast food, Google trying to hijack our grocery list to sell us food, and Roku trying to hijack the device we already paid for to make us buy more! Oh, and something about Blackberry.
Stolendroids 315: Your Headphones Have Ears 59:43
Whoa, can someone check to see if Hell is still warm? We have a full team on this week’s show to discuss the conspiracy theory that might not be just a theory: Your noise cancelling headphones are LISTENING! Also, Facebook has announced some things and Zuke just cannot bring himself to care even a little bit.
Stolendroids 316: So Very Lonely 48:43
Having four people host the show at one time was too much for the Internet to handle, so this week Zohner is flying solo. We apologize in advance, please understand though that there is a lot of lonely going on. He does try to behave himself though as he rambles on about exploding Fitbits and how mobile carriers have too much drinking in their marketing departments.
Stolendroids 317: Ich Bin Groot 59:54
Apple is claiming that their Apple Watch is selling more than ever . . . but don’t want to give us any numbers to back that up. I could claim that this episode is already the most popular one we’ve ever done and it’s been downloaded a million times, but without any actual figures as proof it’s all just smoke. Same with the Watch. Sorry Apple, we want to believe you. Also, no one is sharing a Google Doc with you. Ever.
Stolendroids 318: Profound or Fried 59:43
It’s been a long week for us here, and we may not be making the most sense. Or we ARE making sense, and discovering some of the most amazing realizations ever. Honestly, we’re not sure. We DO know that things have just gotten very interesting if you’re in IT and have ever thought about joining the military. Also, there’s a good chance that you’ve been infected with a computer virus that is about to ruin your life (it’s just statistics at this point). And Microsoft has shown off some real sweet goodies heading our way soon!
Stolendroids 319: Recording Concussed 59:43
Zohner tried to catch a hammer with his face this week so he’s a little out of it. It might explain why he’s so excited for new emoji designs in Android O, honestly. Meanwhile, Microsoft is none too happy that the NSA decided to keep some vulnerabilities to itself and Apple pulls the classic “It’s not us, it’s you” with exploding headphones. “You can use any battery! Except that battery you used. That one might kill you.”
Stolendroids 320: Ketchup Patent Rescue 59:43
A holiday weekend means we’re recording late (and tired) so expect some hilarity to ensue. PayPal states what we’re all thinking since Pandora changed their logo and the battle against patent trolls has just gotten easier thanks to . . . Heinz Ketchup? Sure, we’ll take it. Also, if you’re given the chance to buy a used Nokia phone from India, I’d just pass on that if I were you.
Stolendroids 322: Those Wacky Chinese 59:43
Last week was Apple’s WWDC which means we have a load of Apple goodies to go over! Except none of them seem that new and only one of them looks sorta new. The scandals though, those aren’t new at all! Those are classic Apple through and through. Oh, by the way, isn’t anyone who hasn’t already bought something from you a hypothetical/potential customer? Yeah, Apple doesn’t seem to think those exist.
Stolendroids 323: RSS Woes 59:43
Ever have one of those times when nothing seems to work? Yeah, that’s us right now and it sucks. Things are moving in the tech world this week, though! Amazon is up to . . . something with their Whole Foods purchase, Verizon probably isn’t up to anything with their Yahoo purchase, and Microsoft announces a new Xbox I’m going to have to purchase. It’s an expensive episode.
Stolendroids 21: Arlen Schumer 1:12:31
The Silver Age of comics (circa 1956-1970) was a glorious time. It was a time where some of the greatest and most influential comic book artists were doing their greatest and most influential work. With legends like Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko teaming up with Stan Lee to create iconic characters, including Spider-Man and The Fantastic Four at Marvel, and Neal Adams completely revolutionizing the way we see our super heroes over at DC, there was no shortage of amazing artwork in comic books. Comic book historian, author, and lecturer, Arlen Schumer, has taken it upon himself to teach others about just how influential and important the Silver Age actually was to comic book storytelling. To help accomplish this, he wrote the award-winning book, The Silver Age of Comic Book Art, and has given numerous lectures all across the country on the subject. He was also kind enough to give us some time to chat. If you are a fan of of comic books, history, or just want to hear a really good conversation, then this episode is not to be missed! You can follow Arlen at his website. He is also on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and YouTube. And while you’re at it, go buy his book. You’ll be glad you did.
