Our tech show brings together two tech gurus to chat it up on the monthly podcast that we like to call TechnoBabble. Joe Dugandzic has been friends with Bradly McComb for over ten years and they are always talking about the latest tech gadget, news story or how to do some impossible task and make it easy. Joe’s been in the IT world professionally for many years and Bradly has always been a savvy user of tech from as early as he can remember. The show is partially modeled after the other ‘big’ tech shows like Buzz Out Loud and Tech News Today, but we put our own QTalk America spin on it and try to focus it local to our community whenever possible. The latest crazy tech news, trends, gadgets, Apple rumors and much more!

TechnoBabble #31: NSA Spying and WWDC 2013 Coverage

TechnoBabble #26: SkyTran is Personal Rapid Transportation (yes, for real!)

TechnoBabbleOur long-awaited interview with SkyTran CEO Jerry Sanders is the subject of this week’s show.  Never heard of SkyTran?  Essentially, it’s “The Jetsons” made into reality – no, not actual flying cars but high-speed, non-stop personal transportation that is coming very soon a city near you.

SkyTran Vehicle

How can this be possible, you say?  Well, people generally don’t want to get out of their cars.  Existing public transit, which some would consider “efficient” is actually not efficient at all, when it comes to resources, costs and time.  If you could go from point A to point B, inexpensively, non-stop at up to 50 mph (inner-city, 100+ mph outside of city core) in your very own SkyTran vehicle that glided above the ground, why would you choose to travel any other way?

The first SkyTran systems are due to be installed in countries such as Israel and India within 2 years, where there has been great interest.  The US, not surprisingly, has been generally cold to the idea…but there is support in Mountain View, CA, near the home of SkyTran’s HQ.  Want SkyTran in your town?  Get on the SkyTran website and Facebook page and voice your support!  There will soon be a petition available to send to government and civic leaders to ask for SkyTran systems to be installed.  It’s time to quit putting in light rail and trolleys and use the technology that we have available to continue moving the human race through the 21st century and beyond.

TechnoBabble #25: CES 2013…3D is dead, but 4K is here!

TechnoBabbleCES 2013 was devoid of 3D campaigns this year, but yet 4K TVs were everywhere.  Is CES still relevant?  What were our picks?  Some notable headlines plus a review of AirParrot.

Many tech pundits this year were asking if CES was still relevant, or even needed anymore.  With Microsoft, Apple and others not even showing up…..why does anyone else need to go?  We talk about it and Joe gives his experience of attending CES in years past.

Our interesting picks from CES include Corning’s new “Willow” bendable glass (on the good side) and Panasonic’s bizarre 20″ tablet (on the bad side).

And…so 3D is dead?  Was it ever “alive”?  We think it’s been mostly a gimmick from day one.  But hey!  If you’re not interested in 3D, how about 4K?  It’s double the resolution of 1080p HD video and there’s almost no content available for it, but why don’t you get in-line to get yourself a 4K TV and be the first one on the block!  Let us know how it works out for you, if you’ve got $30k lying around for Samsung’s new 85″ 4K TV!

In recent headlines: Cisco is building a home automation box for AT&T, Susan Crawford says America is behind on broadband (duh!), Brad asks us Is time for six-legged meatballs? and a giant squid is seen in the deep sea for the first time on video.

Joe talks up his favorite new app on his Mac, AirParrot – wirelessly streams your Mac or Windows to Apple TV (without needing Mountain Lion!).  It’s extremely versatile and does more than what the built-in AirPlay Mirroring does in ML.

And, both Brad and Joe want to “Anostyle” their iPhones, but it’s just a bit too pricey!
