Gigawhat Episode 20: Password Protection

Posted in podcast on December 19th, 2010 by ddawg – Be the first to comment

Andrew Hoover and Joshua Caleb join in this week to discuss the importance of password selection on the web. In light of the recent Gawker user data fiasco, remember to check your login info! We discuss some tips on choosing the right passwords. Andrew manages to slip in a rant on smartphone development and progress (or the lack thereof) as we take a look at the new Samsung Nexus S. We also got a slew of app updates and more on this week’s Gigawhat!

Gigawhat Episode 11 – Where’s My New Twitter?

Posted in podcast on September 21st, 2010 by ddawg – 1 Comment

Unfortunately the first initial run of the episode never recorded properly, but don’t fret, we’re still got your weekly dose of Gigawhat, though sans Iyaz.  This week we look Twitter’s new redesign – too bad no one has it yet! What you can get though, is the new IE9 Beta – does it have what it takes to compete with Firefox and Chrome?  We also take a look at the Playstation Move and some exciting announcements from the Tokyo Game Show.

Gigawhat Episode 9 – Live from Bryant Park!

Posted in podcast on August 30th, 2010 by ddawg – 1 Comment

Iyaz and I get together for a live taping of Gigawhat at NYC’s Bryant Park. Unfazed by the random tourists staring at our setup, we give our predictions to Apple’s big event on 9/1. Touches, Nanos, and Shuffles, oh my! We review the new Google Voice feature on Gmail as well as a few apps for the Android, Blackberry, and iPhone. Best part, no Skype lag!

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).
