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

Posted by geeknews at 1:36 AM on January 14, 2011

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!

Get Your 4th Amendment On

Posted by Andrew at 6:49 AM on November 26, 2010

If you’ve been following Todd and the general back scatter x-ray scanner debacle, then you might be interested in this range of underwear from the Cargo Collective.  The undergarments have the 4th Amendment printed in metallic letters so that the text is revealed by the scanner and displayed on the monitor. Genius.

Choose from T-shirts, underwear, socks and children’s clothes, with both plain “4th Amendment” and more provocative “Pervert” versions, though I don’t think the latter shows up on the scanners.

For those not familiar with the US Constitution, the 4th Amendment says, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”    You can read more at Wikipedia.

GNC-2010-11-18 #628 No More Free Ride!

Posted by geeknews at 10:09 PM on November 18, 2010

No more free ride with companies that want to buy off this show host with $10.00 in free products to give away on the show. Time to get their check books out instead. One more show left here in New Mexico before loading up and heading home. Lot’s of tech tonight and some serious soap box time.
