Tech tAUk September 15, 2012 – Season 4 Premier-acle Edition

They said it would never happen. Some of them said it should never happen. But Tech tAUk returns to the ATV airwaves for its fourth season!

Check out the teaser ad for this episode for a preview!

In what has long been a pre-holiday season ritual, Apple announced the long-anticipated iPhone 5, along with new iPod nano and iPod touch models and a new style of Apple’s signature earbuds called EarPods. Douglas and Josh dissect these announcements and share their thoughts on them.

Also on this episode, Douglas and Josh personify this summer’s epic legal battle between Apple and Samsung in a Grate Da Bait, the Tech tAUk Gamers look at the latest in gaming news on the Game Zone, and Josh looks at the party platform’s mentions of internet freedom and security issues in a new “Lip Service Edition” of AmeriTech 2012.

In a new segment this season called “Are You Sirious?” Josh and Douglas ask a philosophical question to Siri, with interesting results. And our Viral Video of the Week is probably going to be the Viral Video of the Year, the infamous Gangnam Style, which we also decided to parody ourselves.

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.
