CobWEBs Daily Edition: Techmeme Friday – fun and yuks for everyone


Welcome to another week of the daily edition of CobWEBs, the flagship podcast of The Cynical Bastards!

For those who don’t remember from the other episodes, this is a new format for the show as we are going to try giving you daily bite sized chunks of our patented brand of cynicism over everything in the tech universe. The show will have a rotating host schedule between Steven Hodson, Mark ‘Rizzn’ Hopkins and myself. You’ll always get two of us, you just never know which two!

In this episode, Steven and I do something a bit different … hey, you try to get annoyed with something every night!  Tonight we go through TechMeme’s headlines and just make general comments on each one … and some of the authors.  MG Siegler gets his own theme song!

Tonight’s links by Steven is a sampling of what we commented on.  This may become out regular Friday night show … oh, and I mock some of the people on Blippy again.
