The Morning AMp – Molly’s Last Broadcast

After a nearly five year run on The Morning AMp, co-host and friend Molly Adams is leaving public radio and taking on her next big challenge: TV. Brian and I (and new co-host Jill Hopkins) will still be delivering the goods, but I got to hop on the mic for a few minutes (starting at 29:20) to say my goodbyes and reminisce about being family tech support. Despite the sadness, I do manage to get a few minutes to talk about my love for Bloodborne if you fast-forward to 31:38. You can listen to the entire segment using the SoundCloud player above.

The Morning AMp – Is The Smart Watch A Smart Purchase?

If you’ve been following my work for any length of time, you know that I love being an early adopter of all the latest and greatest tech. Mobile wallets? Yes please. Oculus Rift? Absolutely. Computers built into our eyeballs? Bring it on. But smart watches? I’m not so sure they’re worth it. I spend some time on The Morning AMp with Molly and Brian tearing down why I think the Apple Watch isn’t worth your time or money. You can listen to the whole segment using the SoundCloud player above.

The Morning AMp – The FCC Saves The Internet

After years of fighting and uncertainty, the members of the FCC have finally put their collective feet down when it comes to Net Neutrality. What does the recent 3-2 vote mean for the average Internet user? I break it down for Molly, Ernst, and the listeners of The Morning AMp. Then, a review of ScreamRide for Xbox One. You can listen to the whole segment using the SoundCloud player above.

The Morning AMp – Review of The Order: 1886

After a minor delay out of 2014, Sony and Ready At Dawn have unleashed the lycan plague upon Victorian London with The Order: 1886. Is this the must-have title that’ll send even more PlayStation 4s off the shelves? Not really, I’m afraid. I break it all down for MollyBrian, and our loyal listeners on The Morning AMp. You can listen to the whole segment using the SoundCloud player above.

The Morning AMp – Smart TV Snafus and New Nintendo 3DS XL

Sometimes, tech companies are so preoccupied figuring out if they can do something that they never stop to ask if they should do something. Samsung recently found itself in hot water after two experimental Smart TV features blew up into consumer backlash, and I have the scoop for Molly, Reena, and the loyal listeners of The Morning AMp. After that, I dive into some hot new video game releases including the New Nintendo 3DS XL, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, and more! You can listen to the whole segment using the SoundCloud player above.

Mashing Buttons – Battlefield Hardline [Beta]

Welcome back! After a holiday hiatus following Extra Life 2014, it’s time for me to talk over footage of video games and tell you how I feel about them. On deck today? The Battlefield Hardline beta. EA delayed the game from its originally scheduled October 2014 launch date to polish everything up to a pristine shine, and it certainly shows in this latest build.

The Morning AMp – Waze Poses Privacy Concerns and Zombies Pose Health Concerns

With the all recent leaks revealing how often law enforcement uses technology to surveil us, you’d think they wouldn’t mind if we surveilled them right back. Alas, the National Sheriffs Association called upon Google to remove the police tracking feature in its navigation app Waze. Does this infringe on free speech? I break it down for Molly and Luis on The Morning AMp. Then, a review of the first-person zombie murder simulator Dying Light. You can listen to the whole segment using the SoundCloud player above.
