Podcasting What Geeks Really Want To Hear


  1. Update:

    MacWorld has an article better describing the Tivo File encryption hack. The cool news is that you can burn TV shows to disk, but it requires a re-encode which can be a lengthy process. The Mac client isn’t very feature rich, but its a good start.

  2. Update:

    Parallels has released a a new beta that addresses the Windows re-registration issue with Boot Camp (and doesn’t require you to pre-install support software in Boot Camp before trying to use the partition in Parallels). Also better USB 2.0 and virtual CD/DVD support.

    A new version of CrossOver (6.0fc1) for the Mac has been announced on VersionTracker. Mainly bug fixes.

  4. Hey guys! I’m a new listener and I love the show!

    It’s refreshing to listen to a podcast where the hosts know what they’re taking about. Unlike other “tech” podcasts, you don’t wash down the content for the less geeky listeners. This may bore some, but I really enjoy the occasional rant about RFCs or programming language schematics. Anyway, keep up the great work!

  5. Thanks for the great feedback, J.P.!

    I, like many others, listen to TWIT and other podcasts and come away from each episode feeling like all I got was the crust and no filling. Pie is good – listeners should get a whole slice! We try to be the filling. :)

  6. Hi Nem & Co – long time no see! I’ve been very busy of late and have only just listened to the last Episode, having missed the previous 3 or so (the only ones I’ve ever missed!).

    Re having more than one laser to write a DVD – you could easily stagger the heads around the disk so that they could write without leaving any regions blank ;-)

    I was wondering if in an upcoming podcast you could have a discussion about the state of 64-bit processing, whether the driver support is there yet, whether mainstream adoption is around the corner or not etc.

    Thanks again and keep up the good work!
