T3kd Weekly 53: Steal My Sauce

We start out with a very interesting conversation about who married who, then the podcast (as usual) just goes downhill from there. This week we talked about the iPhone 4S and its disappointing sales numbers, we talked about Google and Buzz, we talked about Siri and whether or not you will use it. We ended on a great conversation about the upcoming major game releases.

It’s hard to believe, but we have been doing our podcast now for an entire year. Our first episode was very shaky, not well produced, and very unorganized. Let’s face it, nothing has really changed in 50 episodes. In celebration of our first year in podcasting, T3kd Weekly is giving away an iPad 2 to one lucky reader/listener. There are 3 ways to enter, you are allowed to enter a total of 3 times, once per method. The first way to enter is the Twitter method. First follow @t3kd on twitter. Next Tweet out what you would use the iPad 2 for using the hash tag #t3kd4ipad. That’s it you have entered that way! The second way you can enter is the Facebook method. First Like our FB page. Next post on our wall what you would do with the iPad. The last way to enter is by leaving a comment on the contest announcement post available at T3kd.com/contest. Tell us why you want the iPad. You can enter just once per method, so do all three so you can enter up to 3 times. No purchase necessary, some restrictions and conditions apply see site for details.

T3kd Weekly 52: WTF Are You Laughing At?

Okay, so despite all of Vince’s efforts, this podcast got out of hand a couple of times. We discussed professionally and sensitively the passing of Steve Jobs, we bashed and loved the iPhone 4S, and we discuss some of the weeks gaming news. There was also a period in there where Andy and Corrina couldn’t stop laughing, and no one knows what they are laughing about. Hence the title. Jump past the break for audio and download links, and of course the show notes.

T3kd Weekly 43: Rickyless

This week we did a short podcast. Needless to say there were half as many soapbox as normal, because Ricky was off this week. We talked Apple rumors and news, Facebook and hackers, and we talked how Sony is naive and not with it.  Matt has some amazing audio problems, so we apologize for this. We are going to try and get better at doing better audio, so you can look forward to that. Hit the break for download links and the play button.

T3kd Weekly 40: Skype F#$%ing Farted!

Ricky made a promise to Vince that he would not swear. Matt, however made no such promise. If you have virgin ears, you may want to bypass the last part of the podcast where Matt drops the F-bomb a couple of times. This week we finally got the Google+ discussion out of the way, We talked Dropbox woes, OS X Lion, and iPad HD. We also made fun of the HP TouchPad. Matt also accused Skype of farting.

Take a listen to episode 4o if you dare.
