Worthless Genius Podcast Season 2 Episode 1

What’s this? A new Worthless Genius Podcast Episode?

It’s been forever since the last episode of the Worthless Genius Podcast, so bear with me as I get back into the swing of things.

In this weeks episode, I touch on the following topics:

Thank you for tuning in to the Worthless Genius Podcast. I hope you’ll stick around for Episode 2 of Season 2. Next episode will have a bit more flair, as I get used to Soundbooth and the overall workflow process.

Jupiter Broadcasting Gives Away a Popcorn Hour

Jupiter Broadcasting, the group of guys behind the Linux Computer Action Show, CastaBlasta and a range of other great internet entertainment announced a few months ago that they were giving away a Popcorn Hour media player to one lucky YouTube subscriber.

They announced the winner on Friday:

And that lucky winner was…Me! I’m super excited about this great prize for several reasons.

Currently, we consume our movies and television shows on my wife’s Macbook. This is a pretty great setup, but it can become a little uncomfortable at times. With the Popcorn Hour, we can now watch all of our media on the TV in our room. And I do mean ALL of our media:

  • MPEG1/2/4
  • MP3
  • AVI
  • ASF
  • WMV
  • MOV
  • H.264
  • XviD
  • AAC
  • WAV
  • JPEG
  • and more

We don’t own an HDTV, but this is thing is capable of pumping out 1080p signal. This will be great when we want to watch something over at my dad’s (he owns a GIANT Sony Bravia HDTV). Whereas previously we would have had to resample an AVI video and burn it to a DVD to experience it at my dad’s house, now I can throw a hard drive in the Popcorn Hour and lug it on down to his house.

I can’t wait to review this unit, and really get down in the trenches with its functionality.

So, thanks Bryan and Chris, you guys completely rock!

Podcast Episode #4 – Linux, Linux, Linux!

In today’s episode, I discuss Linux.  I also touch on the polarization of the Linux community on the topic of embracing closed-source, proprietary software, and why it would be a good thing for the community as a whole.

Here are some links to what I talked about today:

This episode marks the first episode recorded in GarageBand, so you should see a drastic improvement in the audio quality.  As always, send me some feedback, and let me know what you think, ways that I can improve, or if you think I should start putting music back into the episodes.

Thank you for listening, and feel free to discuss this episode here in the comments. You can also email me suggestions or comments at worthlessgenius [at] gmail.com, or hit me up on Twitter, @stroz. Also, check out my FriendFeed, with username strozykowski.
