I’m just so, yeah. I can’t even all the things.

Seriously, though, Zohner is out of town at his new job and Zuke is reeling from some massive day-job items.  With all tech headlines being on hold until Mobile World Conference, it didn’t seem like a show was going to happen this week.  Rather than miss a week (something we have never done in almost 5 years), we present to you this old school gem!  We will be back next week with new headlines, feedback, and a guest host!

Star Wars and DC Comics… Well, this is The Generic Geek Podcast so what did you really expect? Anyways, this week we talk about a flurry of DC news including the New New 52(?) and some great looks at their upcoming cinematic universe offerings.

To all you holdouts out in the world, I think it's time we talk.  You're screwing things up for the rest of us.  If you could just get with the program, we'd all really appreciate it!  You're the reason we can't have nice things!

 

Podcast Episode #251 – Honesty in Acronyms

This week, things are more apparent than ever that the old folks who are either in charge of everything or want to be in charge of everything really have no idea how the tech world works.  In charge of the CIA? Sure, I'll just use an AOL email address.  Want to be President? Why not sue an online encyclopedia for being an encyclopedia.  Want to be a security software developer? Just block a specific file and call it good!
