  1. Listened to this while I was doing the dishes and almost dropped a plate when the robotic stranger bit came up. Thanks guys. Thanks.

  2. Please…. for all that is holy, stop saying Modern. That was on the table for like, two days for Microsoft. I heard multiple stories of Metro being accidentally said at BUILD. Modern was never uttered.

    Metro or Start screen, Please.

  3. Yeah I used to be a HUGE Apple fan, now I feel a bit technically ambivalent. I really dislike iOS as it’s like a closed slot machine with zero customisation, which is where all OS’s seem to be going.

  4. They actually took my question! My 15 minutes of fame come and gone leaving me sad and old…

    Actually I don´t think the lycra technology is there yet but I am sure there has got to be some way to improve 3d faster than waiting for holograms. The first MP3 players were crap at first also. And thinking back on my first ZX81 at the advent of home computers tells me that you can´t tell by the first stages of implementation where stg. is going to go.

    Yes, I am that old…

  5. DUDES, Destro is an arms dealer. he does fine each time cobra commander fails.

    he did however break out on his own at one point and had recolored versions of cobra vehicles.

    think red and gold hiss tank instead of black.

  6. on apple apology, its not actually an apology, its to “reassure” people that buying a samsung product isn’t illegal.

    stupid, but thats the heart of it. judge was worried people would hesitate buying if they saw it in a store.

  7. Will forgot the most important part of Serpentor that made him the most badass. Part of his DNA was made from Sgt. Slaughter.

    I decided to play around with the Google search app on my iPhone 4, earlier today. Wow, that works really well at everything Siri is supposed to do, but much better. Who needs a phone upgrade? It’s like the Siri commercials without having to cheat the response times. Of course, there are some things it can’t do, like play music, but you can search for a song and play the Youtube video with one click.
