Geek Tech Live 110 Boxee Box winner, BlackMagic Intensity, Verizon IPhone

In this episode, I announce the Boxee Box winner, talk about the BlackMagic Intensity Pro and Verizon Iphone. 

Hi everyone and welcome to Episode 110 of Geek Tech Live. I am still having some issues with the live feed and the Ustream broadcast ended up not streaming my audio when i was showing my desktop or pictures. I figured out what was wrong but unfortunately that means you are stuck with an audio only feed this week. You can if you want start playing the Ustream video and start the audio podcast to see if you can sync them up but its probably for the better if you just listen to the audio bradcast below. I will eventually knock the kinks out of the Ustream broadcast but until then you can always just use your ear holes. 

I have tried to fix the video in post by using the audio from the podcast overlay-ed on the video and if it all works I will attach the new video to this post. 

Without Further Ado  Episode 110 of Geek Tech Live! 

The winner of the Magical Boxee Box contest is Chris Miller! Congrats Chris! I will be emailing you shortly to set up shipping arraignments.

Boxee Box is Coming!

Boxee BoxOh yes. if you are at all familiar with streaming media over the network from Hulu or Netflix you are gonna love this. Up until now Boxee.tv had just a small download that turned your PC or Mac or even Apple TV into a streamin media magnet. But in Quarter 2 of 2010 Boxee will be unveiling the Boxee Box the single most coolest hardware device since the Roku was made available to the masses a few years ago. I loved my Roku and i still have it and use it today. Boxee box seems to take it to the next level though. Here are the basic specs:

  • HDMI
  • Optical Audio
  • RCA Stereo Audio
  • WiFi (802.11n)
  • Ethernet
  • 2 USB Ports
  • SD Card Slot
  • RF Remote
  • QWERTY Keyboard

The remote with the QWERTY keyboard built in really is cool and the design of the Boxee Box is slick as well. If I can get my hands on a demo model for review I will definitely let you all know what I think. Until that happens we all have to wait for a few more months before we can buy one. No price as far as I can see has been decided on for the Boxee Box. I sure hope its as affordable as it is awesome looking.

TheIndie.biz Launches Frindie, A Social Music Application for everyone

theindie.biz FrindieTheIndie.biz Launched a new Social media experience that will allow you to enhance your music listening by finding out what their friends on major social media networks are listening to or buying to listen to. Facebook,Google,Myspace and Twitter are all covered a well as Yahoo, Bebo and Friendfeed.  The Frindie application is a tool that hooks into these social media avenues and will allow with just one click of a button the ability to view how many and of which of their friends listened to, bought, shared etc.. a particular song.  This spin on this one is that its not a bunch of strangers telling you what they like this is your friends that are letting you into the inside scoop on their listening habits, likes and dislikes.  The cool thing with Frindie is that it allows bands as well as fans to fully maximize the social networking experience. This tool will help people find new and interesting music to listen to. What better way to find music you will like and the likelihood of music you will like if you are getting those listening recommendations from your own circle of friends? I would say you are looking at a definitely cool new tool for finding and expanding your current music likes.  On top of all this sharing Frindie will also let you search for music based on the standard Categories and Groups  as well. Maybe, you will even make some new musical friends along the way and that is never a bad thing. To quote the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation “Share and Enjoy!”.

TatMash.com Allows you to try out the Tat before you buy the ink.

tatmash.comSo, here is an interesting concept.  You think to yourself, man I wish I had a cool Tattoo but what shoudl I get? and If I do choose that  twelve in tall papa Smurf on my chest, what will it really look like? Well, now you can get the ink with no remorse and no retribution from friends by heading over to Tatmash.com. Tatmash.com now has an online tool that will allow you to pick a spot that you would like to have a tattoo on and then choose from a multitude of designs to apply to the area.  All this can be done with no needles no ink and a lot less alcohol, ok well you can still have the alcohol but in the end when you wake up the next day instead of a regret you will have a cool picture of you sporting a tattoo that you luckily didn’t get.  For the rest of you TatMash.com is a great way to plan ahead for your next design. figure out if things look good before you go to the artist and even print out your thoughts to take with you to the shop. All in all its a very cool idea and definitely made me ask “Why didn’t I think of that?!?”. So check out Tatmash.com and give yourself and your loved ones some ink!.
