Gigawhat: Episode 5 – Leakages and Pads (and Froyo, too!)

Posted in podcast on August 2nd, 2010 by ddawg – 1 Comment

Mind out of the gutter! We’re of course speaking about the white iPhone 4 delays (due to light leakage) and the plethora of tablets and slates hitting the market. Looks like the next Android firmware update (2.2 aka Froyo) will be coming soon to certain phones. Meanwhile you might want to rethink that PS3 update. All this and more in this week’s Gigawhat!

Gigawhat: Episode 3 – X Marks the Spot

Old Spice: Yay or Nay?

X marks the spot – for Apple, it’s the line that drops your line. Fear not though, Apple has a solution… and a few extra words. While Apple’s pulling out their punches, Motorola sells out of the Droid X, the next contender for top smartphone in the market. And what of the Boxee – will it ever make it out in time? Listen in as we discuss all this and more, not to mention my choice in antiperspirant on this week’s episode of Gigawhat.

Gigawhat: Episode .99 – Crazy for Phones

Posted in podcast on June 28th, 2010 by ddawg – Be the first to comment

With a show title finally chosen, we look into the iPhone craze sweeping the nation. Deciding on a new phone? We break down the iPhone and give our two cents to the good, bad, and ugly. And for those not drinking the Apple Kool-Aid, we look at some other great options, including the Aria, Evo, and Droids. We also give a voice to Google Voice and take a peek into the future of porn (apparently you can find it on the web!).

Feel free to leave your thoughts on the show or our new name. And hey, we’re finally on iTunes! Subscribe to us with the link below and follow us on Twitter (Iyaz at @iyaz, Derrick at @derrickc82).
