E3! Microsoft talks changes to the Xbox 360 interface (Kinect + Bing + Xbox Live), live TV and new games this fall: Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, Mass Effect 3, Gears of Wars 3. And a new Fable, Tomb Raider, Call of Duty and a re-release of HALO with updated graphics. (We've got Sony keynote picks, too!)
We've got our top picks from the new features in OS X Lion and iOS 5! Great price for the upgrade, but what's up with only being able to download it at the MacApp store??? Oh, and how do you know you've made a great iPhone app? "Apple tries to put you out of business."
Steve has "a computer system that went through a fire and suffered heavy smoke damage. The computer, the monitor, speakers, DSL modem, etc, all work fine, but the smoke smell seems impossible to get rid of. My question: Is there any way to get rid of the smoke odor or am I burned?" We've got experience with this problem (and removing a few smells that are even worse!) watch the video to find out how we get bad smells out o' tech with some cheap household supplies!
While we're waiting for HP's Touchpad to show up... Patrick reviews HP's latest WebOS powered phone, the Veer 4G ... it's like the Palm Pre Mini Me! We compare it to iPhone and Android, too. (Just don't expect serious 4G speed, says PCMag!)
We're big fans of the preservation of history, especially when the media can be made available to the general public for education and fun! That's why this week's "Website We Just Can't Get Enough Of" is the National Jukebox from the Library of Congress!
We love to celebrate geek culture, in all its forms, like Blip Festival, a mash up of bleeding edge underground music and video gaming. Our favorite Bytejacker, Anthony Carboni, attended BlipFest 2011 and talks us through the joy of music made from vintage NES's, gameboys and C64 SID chips by Anamanaguchi, Noise Waves and more. And, of course, he's got a cool new indy game you'll want to check out, too! (Want to hear more music? Check out 8bitpeoples and 8bitcollective!)
In episode 222, we had a question from Chris B. about how he could transfer 32GB of video files from a Mac formatted external drive to his PC. Veronica suggested software like MacDrive, but the Tekzilla audience had a few other ideas as well! Watch the video to hear 'em!
