Episode 71: Rapture Beta by Google

According to one of our listeners in Taiwan, a 14.0 earthquake was predicted as truth. But maybe that was just Microsoft buying Skype. Another listener’s question prompts a discussion of Google’s new Chromebooks and Music Beta.

Lame List nominations go to the poor uses of QR Codes and iPad Apps that don’t support dual orientation.

Picks are the hardest-working man in reality television and the game Sword and Sworcery (which does support dual orientation).

    I listened – mostly. If you’re interested in my thoughts. Wait until we’re f2f, and there’s beer.

    Well, I’m waiting for this episode to come up to give this lame-list follow-up about this 14.0 guy.

    Most to my surprise, he even dares to predict in precise minute when the earthquack will strike.
    And about an hour after the predicted time, he claims that he was drunk when he said that.
    And on about May 12th, he says that he has given up 30 years of his life to delay this disaster.
    I personally tend to believe that he’s drunk.

    If you’re going to read my comment, read this part first.

    I totally forgot the best part of the story.
    What the predicter told his believer to do, is buy a trailer like this

    and place it on the highest place of the island. (You do know Taiwan is an island, right?) So youcan hide in it and survive.

    P.S. I’d really love to know how’s that Judgement Day dude doing. I haven’t heard of the 14.0 dude since then.

    Um, just so you know, podcasts 24-42 are broken. They keep saying either Itunes can’t play it or it’s a corrupt file. You might want to fix that.
