GNC #689 Bandwidth Challenged

Looks like someone is messing with my net connections while I am streaming the show. Twice in two weeks the net connection has went dead while live time to do some digging. Lots of tech tonight but the last two shows the intro has slipped a bit in length. I will get that re-aligned next show. So far nothing but postive feedback on the HD version of the show. See the bonus links in the show notes and check out our iTunes network provider listings.

GNC #667 Big Media wants a Fight!

Ohana, over the past month I have been entertaining an offer that would have resulted in new owners of Geek News Central, and the Geek News Central Podcast. The offer was a darn good one and while I would have remained the host of the show it boiled down to I am not done yet. While I am sure I will question my decision for a while, as it was a “really” good offer and the team that was looking to acquire the show was top notch it just did not make sense to do it. Some more insights in the show today, but I just want to assure all of you I am not going anywhere.

Google Labs Launches Page Speed

Google Labs has launched a cool new open-source tool for webmasters called Page Speed.  It can be used both online or via a browser extension.  It allows users to analyze any website – not just the ones you have admin access to.  After running a quick analysis it will offer suggestions for how a user can optimize their website.

The analysis runs quickly and when it’s finished it will break down it’s suggestions by High Priority, Medium Priority, and Low Priority.  Within each you will find more detailed information such as “Optimize images” or “Minimize Redirects”.  Each suggestion is a hyperlink which, when clicked, will give more detailed information about how to fix that particular problem.  It also generates an overall score for the page out of a possible perfect 100 score.

The Page Speed test can be run from the Google Labs Page Speed site.  From there you can also download browser extensions for Firefox or Chrome.  The tool is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac.

GNC-2011-03-28 #658 RIAA Infiltrates Federal Judges!

If you cannot beat them Join them. A federal judge who worked as a lobbyist for the RIAA has already ruled pro RIAA as compared to other judges reviewing similar cases. This is a major win by the RIAA and will obviously go badly for any that draw her as a judge. I talk about this and a lot more. I also announce some upcoming format changes as we look forward to the next 5 years in where this show is going to go. Obviously the Ohana are going to weigh in as I make these changes and we will see how they go.. I have decided it is really time to focus on the format as the shows has not changed much in the past 6.5 years.

GNC-2011-01-14 #639 Back in the Saddle

It is fantastic to be back doing the show after a two week hiatus for CES and all of the other adventures I have been on. This one is action packed and I have some major soap box time about Google and their H.264 abandonment announcement and who consumers in general are going to suffer over this format war. Lots to share this is a fast paced one strap in tight!
