Tech tAUk April 17, 2010 — Penultimate Edition

On this episode, our headlines include a look at the U.S. Army’s new CYBERCOM, Google’s new Cloud Print service, Apple’s new lineup of MacBook Pros, the Norwegian Prime Minister using an iPad when stranded in New York, and much more. We also spend some time delving into the details of Twitter’s new advertising efforts: promotional tweets.

Josh then brings back his popular “Flunks” segment as he highlights the weird, disturbing, and even depressing failures of humanity as found on the web. And Douglas is joined by Eli Susser, ATV’s Productions Manager, to show off some tricks from Apple’s Motion program.

Finally, we close out the show with our viral video of the week: a dog testing the iPad.

About Douglas Bell

I live in Washington, D.C., and work as a Broadcast Technician at WAMU 88.5 FM, the local NPR affiliate in the Washington metro area. My primary shift is to engineer the local feed of NPR’s Morning Edition, including local news and weather, long-form features and station breaks… and yes, the shift starts at 5 am, so I’ve got the whole quasi-nocturnal thing going on. I am also the Coordinating Producer for Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie, an independently-produced podcast and public radio program. Extracurricularly, I play cello, and participate in a church choir and a handbell choir. I enjoy discovering new places, and am constantly searching for the perfect cheeseburger. I am also known as a frequent teller of puns.
