008.5 : We’ve got to be finished before Rob’s beer session (MWLUG Live)
Fri, Nov 3rd 2017 4:20p   Darren Duke
Darren and Jesse (sans Stuart) are joined by Richard Moy in the first “WTF Tech on-the-road” show at MWLUG in Alexandria. VA (USA) in back in August. We chat about the things that went on at the conference (which admittedly was over 3 months ago….apologies for that – DD) but it’s still a fun one nonetheless. Sponsored by: DJI: Leaders in developing and manufacturing innovative drone and camera technology. Special offers on Phantom and Inspire drones, and Os

Show notes: Chitchat Crap movie reboots 10th Anniversary of the Apple iPhone What are our memories of the first iPhone? Did any of us have one? $499/$699 plus contract! Visual voicema

Darren, Jesse and Stuart return with the seventh episode of WTF Tech show. We discuss the Wanna Cry attack, IBM’s new work location strategy.

We were hit by a Chrome bug that incorrectly detects the audio sample rate. We did investigate re-recording the episode, but with vacations immi

Darren, Jesse and Stuart are back with the sixth episode of WTF Tech show. Forever to be known as “the cursed episode”, this one took the best part of a month to record due to various technical and organisational difficulties! We discuss Apple’s decision to revisit the Mac Pro and what it tells us about the future of Pro computing, how we discover and consume news today, our first experiences of using hard disks, and then finish with a brief status report on our respective

Darren, Jesse and Stuart reconvene for the first WTF Tech show in several millennia(!), and discuss IBM Connect (including appdev futures and Connections Pink), Mobile World Congress news and device announcements and then roll back the years to share their first experiences online… (Recorded Friday 10th March 2017) Show notes: Chitchat Jesse’s bought a new house – wahoo!

You know when your enterprise tech vendor makes a move that forces you to involuntarily exclaim ‘what the f*** ?!?‘ (or words to that effect). Perhaps announcing a new product that will cannibalise the old one, or making a huge acquisition that rapidly turns to dust, or… Well, you get the picture! We’ve all been there.
