Vulgar Tech

This ain’t y0 mama’s tech podcast. We talk about tech with a slant towards mature subjects, comprised of both a lifelong nerd plus a nearly-technophobic co-host – complex subjects are analyzed and explained.

Keyloggers, Hackers, RansomWare, and a Bunch of Weird Tech News

Oh, snap! A Big Hack! Yes, yes, of COURSE we talk in-depth about the huge multi-country, multi-target WannaCry / WannaCrypt / WannaCrypt0r hack. In fact, we even discuss motives, methods, history, and resolution of the hack by way of Mitcz over-explaining boring technical details of the code involved. But, like any good sandwich, the meat […]

AI Style Assistants, Robot Voices, Robot Sex Toys, Augmented Reality, and Lab Grown Meat

We kick things off this week with some exciting Riffopolis Network news, before delving into Amazon’s latest whacky Echo product : a style assistant? Yes, an AI Style Assistant in a webcam. Alex gets very upset about it and rants and raves wildly. We discuss a new software API for artificial voiceover creation – and […]

Hackers, Mandelberg’s Law, Lyft & Uber Morality, Autopilot, and More!

Hey look! We’re kinda keeping something of a schedule here! Okay, let’s talk about the episode… We start off with tangents about Amazon’s Alexa, then move into a proposed “pinball for rent” business idea while also discussing tech that only the uber-rich have (and can afford). From there, we discuss why Lyft doesn’t understand April Fools’ […]

Predictions, Flying Cars, Human Head Transplants, Trolls, Dating Apps and More!

We’re baaaaack! Hello 2017! This being our first podcast in the new year, we kick things off with our weird tech predictions (spoiler : Mitcz’s predictions are weird and nerdy, Alex’s are lofty). We  also discuss other company’s predictions like Uber’s master plan for flying cars, and Amazon’s master plan for automated grocery stores. We explore […]

Elon Musk is a robot. Also, tech updates that aren’t Apple-related!

Since we finally started doing new VT episodes again, we’re doing time-relevant tech updates and speculation again! And almost none of them are Apple-related! We discuss the restaurant industry, Alex’s fascinating theory on McDonalds, Netflix, Snapchat’s weird new hardware device that will usher in the acceptance of a loss of privacy, how shitty Yahoo is […]

Apple iPhone 7 Event, Alex Makes the Switch, and More Tesla Stuff

The Apple iPhone 7 / Watch 2 event went down the day before this episode was recorded and we sat down to discuss it. Mitcz makes his attempt at an impassioned case for the removal of the headphone jack, while Alex gets pissy about the price on the AirBuds. We also talk a lot about Alex’s […]

The Uber for Things, The Internet of Things, Teledildonics, VR Porn, and Silk Road

We’re back after a two week hiatus – sorry! But we’ve got a lot of little tech morsels — some of them vulgar — for you. From the “Uber for Gas” and “Uber for Tailoring” to Google’s proposed new OS for the Internet of Things, to IKEA’s official Hack system, to Nintendo’s curious VP of […]

Cars! Virtual Reality! Road-Head! Videogames!

Sorry we were late this week. It’s been crazy around here. We start off with a correction, and a couple of quick news items — like the fall of the House of Keurig (okay.. “fall” is a little strong. The weakening?), and some Amazon Echo enhancements. With Google finally testing its self-driving cars on public […]

Mitcz’s Predictions, Tesla’s Home Battery, Self-Driving Semi Trucks, Battle of the Smartphones

Mitcz is pleased that he successfully predicted (with some caveats) two stories that are tackled this week. We talk about Tesla’s new home battery, why it’s worthwhile, and whether it’s useful beyond its intended target. We also discuss self-driving semi trucks, and what the future holds, debate about what laws should be made, and the efficacy […]

Tesla, The Singularity, Patents, The DMCA, and What is Ownership?

We discuss Tesla’s secret-but-not-secret upcoming home battery project, which evolves into discussing their vehicles and vehicles in general. Alex gets an education about what The Singularity actually entails, and we discuss the morality of becoming “one”. After running through some recent tech news, we settle into a discussion about Google’s hope for defeating patent trolls, and […]
