Welcome back again! We're here, still. Tell your friends. Anyway, this week we finally give our final thoughts on Facebook...Final. OK, they're probably not our final thoughts, but we go so in depth, we won't need to even mention Facebook for at least a few episodes. New drinking game: Take a sip every time Dong says "Facebook" in this ep.
Is the iPad all that it's cracked up to be? This "late" in the game, who cares what we think right? I mean, it's been out for a whole week! Anyway, Dong and I had a chance to check it out and pass judgment--ultimate judgment!
Dong finally gains elite status. He's been blessed by the gods at Blizzard with a Starcraft 2 beta key. He attempts to keep his composure, but instead it's half an episode of his giddy schoolgirl impression. Pathetic.
Also, Dong's further adventures in getting taken by the man as … Read more
Update: April Fools' day is over. Thanks for "going along" with our little joke and allowing us to have some fun with you. See you all next week!
Rumor has it the iPhone is coming to Verizon. Have our prayers been answered, or is that light at the end of the tunnel just a train? We discuss.
Then, could the WoW: Cataclysm beta be coming this month? The month of April, of which this is the first day? We're hoping.
So, enjoy your … Read more
Dong wants you to change your passwords often, and he seems committed to spreading his brand of Internet security ideals. I see it slightly differently.
Then, from the world of extreme ridiculousness--at least from my perspective--comes Game Crush . One of the saddest takes on Web 2.0 social networking I've ever heard of. In this episode, I explain why I'm so livid.
Finally, I've attributed the empty void currently in my soul to the fact that my Xbox 360 has been on the road to the red ring. Games have been crashing after two minutes of play … Read more
This week, special guest Antuan Goodwin and I gang up on Dong as he has trouble deciding which race to enter on his 2010 census.
Then we move on to a cinematic gem, a celluloid triumph, if you will. I'm speaking, of course, of "Black Dynamite!" (hears "Dynamite! Dynamite! in the background). We explain why, if you haven't seen this movie yet, you're a blight on humanity and we don't wanna be your friend anymore.
If Apple, Microsoft, and Google were women, which would Dong want to date? Listen to find out the … Read more
Nerdfest! Dong tells us about the very exciting nerdfest he had this weekend and how the Xbox 360 controller sucks compared to the keyboard and mouse. And excuses, excuses, excuses about why he didn't win. He's just bitter.
Then he explains why his media center is better than anyone Else's. He may actually have a point here, especially compared to mine. Since I don't have one.
Also, ever not been able to pull yourself away from a game? Sure, we all have. We speak a little about the science of this phenomenon.
Finally, In keeping with … Read more
Ladies and gentlemen, you are about to once again experience The Experience. That's right, Dong has officially changed his name to The Experience. I think he's lobbying for a spot on the next season of "Jersey Shore." Anyway, this is actually not true.
So, a funny thing happened to me on the way to a soccer game. It involves three women, 35 cents, and an imaginary shotgun in the trunk.
Then we delve into some of the upcoming changes to World of Warcraft that were announced this week.
Finally, in an effort to have some serious, … Read more
In this economy, states (and by extension, cities) will do whatever it takes to make money. Especially deficit-prone California, whose financial woes trickle down to San Francisco. This week, Dong discusses his own recent woe with the city and its newest parking-ticket scam.
Things go from bad to worse when Dong learns he can't play a game he's been waiting 10 years for...yet. The Starcraft 2 beta is out, and Dong doesn't have a key! Anyone have a key for little Mr. Ngo? Actually, one of my joys in life is seeing him suffer. Don't … Read more
So Southwest airlines had a good old, fun time with director Kevin Smith this week. Hilarity ensued to be certain, but Eric feels the need to step onto his very worn soapbox about something that, at the end of the day, isn't really important. Entertaining though!
Then, an epic battle ensues between Dong's left and right brains. No matter who wins, we lose.
Finally, hackers get banned. Dong blames Apple and I sit back, relax, and rake in the cash. Just another day for Mr. B Natural.
This week we get all Politico.com as we discuss the impact of a politician who writes notes on the palm of her hand. Not an inherently bad thing, but very, very easy (and fun) to make jokes about.
Also, just to let you know, I did survive my sparring session! Listen to the episode to find out what I'm talking about. Lastly, Dong gets pulverized by a girl. Seriously, she makes him bleed and probably cry.
