Apparently I need to go on vacation more often as it results in me coming home to Steven having done all sorts of wonderful things.

While driving home from my vacation yesterday, Steven Hodson, my co-host on the Braindead Techcast, messaged me that he had a surprise for me.  I had no clue what it was, but once I got home he unveiled to me BraindeadTechCast.com.  Yes, folks, we’re moving up town with our show, and it now has its own little penthouse in the sky.

Steven’s thinking was the show really didn’t fit in with his site, and I have to agree I have felt it was an odd thing to have hear on my site.  So, from here on out, Braindead TechCast will be posted over on its own site.  It’s been set up for a main RSS feed, or you can even select to just get the themed shows (i.e. if you only enjoy Moronic Monday, then you can subscribe to just those).  We even have our own Twitter account for the show now, @braindead_tech, so make sure to follow us.

We’re working on getting the show on to iTunes, so we should have news on that also fairly soon.

As of right now, neither Steven or I make any money from the show, and it is simply a labor of love.  We hope if you’ve enjoyed it on our sites you’ll follow it to its new home, and spread the word to your friends!

I’m on the road tonight as I’m flying out on vacation tomorrow, so we did the show with me in a hotel room, and … well, lets just say my Internet speed left something to be desired.  Our apologies if the episode sounds a bit odd, but it just couldn’t be helped.

An interest collection of stories tonight, almost like a cleanser for some of the moronic stories we do during the week.

And as a special treat … here is my speedtest just prior to the show …

Why is social media filled with idiots?  And why must some CEOs say insanely stupid things?

It’s everyone’s favorite night of the week (well, ours at least), it’s Techmeme Friday!  YAY!  And, as always, some of the headline writing leaves a lot to be desired.

Yes, it’s a full night where we discuss a ton of small stories, and bounce around a lot, but honestly I find those the most fun.  It’s like some sort of rapid fire exchange.

So, Twitter changes its home page — something a good chunk of us never even use, and it will drive yet another large group of developers out of business — but yet you can’t be bothered to discuss the rogue Google employee who was getting into the accounts of teenagers, pulling up chat logs, taking a peek at Google Voice call records and more.

Yep, enjoy your new in-line Twitter pictures …

We start off with a bit of a rant from me about button pushers … lemmings!

A lengthy discussion of the Apple App policies.  Some very interesting reading.

Paul O’Flaherty tries to woo me away from Steven.
