#52 The Home Tech Podcast: GPS Watches, the iPod Nano recall, Online Collaboration, OpenVPN and Microsoft Surface for the Masses!
Jim, Andrew and Christian are joined this week by Bill Paulmenn for this weeks’ installment of the Home Tech Podcast.
Bill has also caught the “new microphone disease”, and the show starts off with Bill telling us about his new Samson Microphone. Jim talks about using a studio microphone along with a set of Yurbuds earphones, which let you hear ambient conversations, as well as the conversation you are partaking in.

Bill tells us about the projects he is working on, building an HTPC for a neighbor, a new gaming rig, and consolidating some hardware for other folks.
Jim talks about the recent software upgrade coming through to his Samsung Galaxy S Android phone, which has bought some additional functionality, and saved him from upgrading to a new phone, although the Samsung Galaxy SII is a very nice device.
Jim, Gordon, are joined by John Hughes from Code Core Technologies, and a late joining Andrew for this weeks’ installment of the Home Tech Podcast.
After a brief chat about phones and and the trials and tribulations of dying gaming consoles, the Jim kicks off, talking about his latest project, “The 28 Day Experiment” testing the HP TouchPad. You can follow Jim’s experiences over on the website, under the “The 28 Day Experiment” tag. The guys chat about some of the comparisons between application availability on Android, and WebOS, and where and if a tablet device could fit into their lives. Currently, Gordon is a Samsung Galaxy Tab user, and none of Jim, John, or Andrew currently own a tablet device. The guys also discuss devices like the Barnes and Noble Nook, and it’s potential as an mobile content consumption device.
Gordon shares with us his thoughts on Ford Sync, and why he chose to leave this option off the order form when purchasing his new car.
This drive is an absolute steal, being marginally more expensive than a comparable DVD writer, and has the benefit of LightScribe, that cool technology that lets you flip your media over and etch your own artwork onto the surface of the disk.
