  • Chilla is talking about the Ring doorbell depth sensor.
  • We’re discovering the networking opportunities with the Ring video doorbell.
  • Brian is sharing his Fire TV Cube as his Awesome Thing of the Week.
  • Brian is also sharing the Ignite Pro bluetooth PA system as an extra Awesome Thing of the Week.
  • Sorg’s Awesome Thing of the Week is gaming related with some Twitch updates.
  • Project Rush is now Premiere Rush.
  • There’s a sweet Mario Kart bar in Toronto.
  • WIRED + Apple TV = A new way to watch WIRED content.
  • Have some screenshots you’re trying to clean up and fit into product demos on every Apple device? Someone has created a shortcut just for you!
  • Chilla is talking about some interesting recipe shortcut scripts you can run on your devices.
  • Have an Apple device? Their original shows may be free, as long as you’re using the TV App.
  • Chilla is impressed with Apple device parental control options. He’s looking for Android to step their game up.

AwesomeCast 345: Don’t Eat the Raspberry Pi

The prodigal daughter, Katie, returns this week to keep Sorg and Chilla in check while Brian Crawford of The River’s Edge joins us for AwesomeCast 345. They’re talking about some of this week’s awesome things in technology, including:

  • Brian is talking about the Millvale Music Festival and their cool Google Maps integration as his Awesome Thing of the Week.
  • The Millvale Music Festival is also looking at integrating Google Calendar interfacing too. Geeks + Music = ROCK
  • Katie is giving a shout out to Chilla for her Awesome Thing of the Week – the Real Doll with Harmony AI.
  • AI without the Real Doll. The conversation is really geeky over here.
  • This is how we get Sky Net, people.
  • Chilla is telling us about the Coachella stolen iPhone caper – solved by Find My iPhone.
  • As if Sorg isn’t geeky enough running a tech podcast. He has a Go Pro bag of holding.
  • Don’t have a Go Pro? It’s okay, Sorg’s bag of holding comes with iPhone or 360 Camera attachments, too.
  • Thanks to Rizz for making us hungry for pancakes thanks to the Pancake Bot.
  • Even geekier Brian is excited about the Star Trek replicator implications of Pancake Bot.
  • Slice on Broadway, we need to talk about a pizza printer. (You should listen to this week’s show…)
  • Nintendo is discontinuing the NES Classic Edition?
  • More Zelda copies have been sold than actual Switch consoles?
  • Ryan Haggerty shared a fun story about prison inmates building a PC out of waste materials.
  • Wendy’s trolled Hardees so hard they got blocked?
  • Dragonball Z VR is a thing? (Yes, we’re still geeks. Yes, we’re excited about it.) Kamehameha!
  • F8 announcements happened, and there is QR support!
  • VR friends in Facebook: Spaces.
  • We won’t see the VR potential for another 10 years.
  • Facebook is planning to make phones and tvs obsolete.
  • We’re such an advanced technology podcast that we’re discussing 1980s and 1990s TV programming.
