TinyScreenfuls Podcast 2006-01-06

Brian came over to my cube on Friday, and we took a little while to catch up from over from the holidays, and record a show. We just put the M-Audio Microtrack recorder on my desk and talked, so there’s some office background noise, but c’est la vie at Intel. Don’t miss the part where my CVS disposable video camera freaks out and starts making a loud annoying sound that we can’t stop (around the 35 minute mark). Hilarity ensues. πŸ™‚

You can download the MP3 file directly (20 MB, about 45 minutes), or subscribe to the Tinyscreenfuls Podcast Feed in your favorite aggregator.

Some highlights of this week’s show:

  • Hands-on with a Lenovo Thinkpad X41 Tablet PC
  • Hands-on with my new Nintendo DS and “Malcolm”, my lab puppy in Nintendogs. We take Malcolm for a walk around the neighborhood, play at the park with other dogs, and pick up poop. Bet you never thought you’d hear that on this show. πŸ™‚
  • Waiting for Verizon Fios fiber broadband install
  • Quick review of the M-Audio Microtrack recorder that I’m using to record this
  • More Josh-powered podcasts coming to Intel…
  • My CVS disposable digital video camera freaks out on us, making a loud squealing noise. Listen to Brian and I fumble around frantically to get the battery compartment open to pull the batteries and kill it. Comedy gold. πŸ™‚
  • Why I came in and worked on the January 2 holiday…
  • Demo of the PVC marshmallow shooter I made from the HowToons comic in MAKE Magazine

Enjoy the first podcast of the new year, and let us know what you think! πŸ™‚

  2. Nice to hear the podcast again… Just wondering if you are using any screen protectors on your DS? I recently got one as well and have been worried about scratches. Also, are you carrying your games around in their cases or do you have something else?

    I’ll shoot you my Mario Kart ID when I have it handy (and your broadband is installed). I’ve played some people online, but just random games. Interested how the friends list works…

    P.S. My Elektroplankton should arrive at the end of this week. I can’t believe how much of a Nintendo nerd I have become recently. πŸ™‚

    Hi Josh,

    Since you recently got a DS, you might enjoy this game, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. Also known as “that Lawyer game”. It is, in my opinion, a pretty engaging game if you like wacky, Matlock/Law and order like gameplay. It’s actually better than that. Anyway, love the Tinycast, as always.

    Are you ever going to do another podcast? Those of us out here on the East Coast really miss it! I seem to remember some sort of pledge to do more in the New Year…
