Tech tAUk Reloaded #26: Bull-Fighting Glassholes

Tech tAUk Reloaded

February may have been a short month, but it did not leave us out in the cold when it comes to tech news. We’ve got a wide gamut of tech stories to bring to you this week. And for once, Josh actually outpaces Doug in the number of puns dropped on this episode.

Our tech headlines this week:

We then discuss the growing phenomenon of binge-watching, which became quite notable last month when Season 2 of House of Cards was released on Netflix.

Josh then discusses the coming growth of Addressable TV, technology that would allow cable/satellite companies and advertisers to micro-target television ads to your specific household.

Finally, Douglas reviews Mac DVDRipper Pro, an app to help you import a digital copy of your DVD movies into your computer and mobile devices. And Josh briefly looks at the substantial sponsorship of the Oscars by Samsung, including the heavily-retweeted selfie by Ellen DeGeneres.

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.
