Episode 21, Good in the Cloud


In this show we speculate on what’s coming up in Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) next week. Well, actually, we’re mainly interested in what Steve Jobs will be wearing at the keynote.

The Richards critique the early preview of Windows 8 (codenamed “Windows 8”!) based on a recent viral video released by Microsoft to whet the appetite of the tech world.

Richard S has high hopes for the new Nook, despises his broadband plan and endures another tedious review by Richard F of a Star Trek Original Series episode: Charlie X.

Richard F is impressed by the technical prowess of the Stuxnet virus, taunts Indian malware scammers and has an unexpectedly happy experience with Ubuntu.

    Hey Ministry of Geek, something you may want to advertise on: http://124.198.140.195:8000/listen.m3u
    it’s the streaming radio station live from The Smart Store! SMS FM! That might be something to talk about too.

    Hi Min of G,

    interesting that you were left, for financial reasons, to go for wi-fi at the local playcentre. BBC Panorama did an investigation a few years ago with the UK government scientific advisor recommending wi-fi be avoided where young children were present.

    Mind you, it did get rubbished as being unbalanced but is it a case of shooting the messenger?

    • Hi Cliff,

      Firstly, thanks for listening to The Ministry of Geek! Secondly, that just shows how much disdain Richard S has for little people, given how blaze he was about installing wi-fi. I love my kids, so I’m all for Cat-6.

      Cheers,
      Richard F
