Standard

As 2018 comes to a close, Alberto and Paul struggle not to have the year end on a sour note. Sure, we talk about robot job interviews and how more and more employers are adopting this highly impersonal approach to hiring, and we find out that Quora was hacked in real-time, but Paul saves the day with his IRL review of the Google Pixel 3! 

Thank you for rocking with us in 2018. We have one more show before the year is done and we hope to have some surprise guests as well as some bold predictions for 2019. Happy holidays.

Standard

In this episode, Alberto and Paul are back with a full list of tech news and new gripes. Coming off of Apple’s Oct. 30th announcement, we try to figure out if the latest computing advancements are worth losing the ability to do self-repairs. We also take a minute to remind our listeners that you don’t just have to take – the Electronic Frontier Foundation is actively fighting back and trying to preserve users’ rights (link below). 

Paul is on the fence about the new Google Pixel 3 – from underpowered internals to weird notches popping up, he’s not sure if this is the phone for him. 

And lastly, we try to make sense of the recently announced Yongnuo YN450 – an Android-powered 4/3’s camera that sports a Canon EF mount. Did we mention it runs Android 7.1? WTF?

The Noisecast Episode 1: Loot Crates and Snapshots

Standard

In this episode, I’m joined by Paul Combs of the C&C Geekcast. We talk video games, DLC and in-app purchases, and how the loot crate economy is creating the next generation of addicted gamblers. 
In a lighter note, we also chat about my experience shooting with two new cameras, the Olympus EM10 Mark III and the Lomography Instant Square.

The Noisecast Episode 6 (2018) – Street Photography with Mason Resnick

The Noisecast Episode 4 (2018) – Damned Kids and Their Self Driving Cars!

Standard

In this episode, Paul manages to keep his cool as Alberto’s allergies plot to render him unable to coherently speak. When not choking, we manage to discuss a movie nearly a decade in the making – Avengers: Infinity War. We talk about the ethics (or lack thereof) behind Google’s Duplex AI bot, and Uber’s self-driving software killed a woman and no one seemed to care.
