Do you like technology, gaming and hilarity? Do you wish these things could be distilled into pure audio form so you can enjoy them on the go? Check out the brand new Technophilia podcast, featuring MakeUseOf writers James Bruce, Dave LeClair and Justin Pot.
You won’t be happy until you do.
Technophilia is a weekly, irreverent look at the past week in tech. We talk about the big technology headlines, highlight applications we’re using and reviewing and try to have a good time doing it. Frequently we talk about articles we intend to write in the week to come, making this podcast a great way to hear the latest from MakeUseOf before it’s even published.
Be warned – this podcast contains naughty, NSFW language, which some people may find offensive. It also features Dave LeClair, which all people will find offensive. Sorry, we can’t get him to leave.
This podcast is not part of MakeUseOf, and it’s content does not represent the views of MakeUseOf. It is, however, awesome.
In a world where corporate overlords try to overtake the Internet for their own evil ends, Technophilia gives you the news from the people’s point of view. It’s Episode 7: THE NEXT SAGA IN THE CONTINUINING BATTLE AGAINST TEH INTERNETZ.
We start every episode highlighting a few applications we’ve been using lately. This week Dave, in his never-ending quest to finally find a friend, hacks Siri to add a conversation mode. Find how how he did this, and how he added tweeting and various other features to Apple’s famous phone AI. He even makes her swear for you, because he cares about his listeners (and because James told him to).
James, our corporate sellout, drank Microsoft’s champagne and proceeds to promote Skydrive to our dozens of listeners. Is Microsoft’s cloud service worth checking out for an Apple fanboy?
Justin uses BlockedInChina and finds out his rarely-updated personal blog is blocked in the People’s Republic. Why?
All this, and the week’s headlines, await.
