Hey boff, I loooooove technowlohgeee. What I love best about it is that I get professionals to install overpriced items that I'm not sure exactly how they work for free because of my job as the technobeaver.

I like how someone must have tweeted him saying that there are alternatives out there for getting Flash content (at least music and videos, notsomuch flash games/apps), even if it doesn't have an iOS-compatible version, such as Skyfire, which was huge news when it came out.

He just tweeted back, "Don't think so. If there was, it would be major geek news!" I mean, I don't give a poo poo about nor expect most people knowing about every app out there, but it's so silly that he's obviously way uneducated about technology in general yet considers himself a gadget guy and a "geek," too, apparently.

It was also pretty insane that Richard got pretty much ripped and in great shape and everyone was still goofing on him, saying he looks worse, he is losing weight wrong and other poo poo.

Dude owns, he drinks mimosas and counts his calories and plays the drum and just straight up and down owns.

I'm glad to see how many people were annoyed by the ripping on Richard today, I know that ball-busting is a cornerstone of the show but come on. If you should stop doing something that you enjoy simply because it's not lucrative then Howard should stop it with this chess. Feh.

Oh really? Well I was reading an article the other day where a WOMAN was getting her car stolen and a man in a RED SUIT jumped out!

I imagine Robin and Sarah Palin both have the inability to recall what magazines, newspapers, and journals they read.

Ralph told me that ripping DVDs to my iPad is a whole thing. A whole complicated thing and it ain't easy.

I seriously don't think I know a more technology ignorant group. I mean the 2-3 guys on that show who claim to know technology are so mindbogglingly poor at it that it makes the rest look that more retarded.

This just happened to my starmate 4 a few weeks before christmas. You get the same "Antenna not detected" thing on the display?
I bought a starmate 5 on boxing day, and cancelled my 4, but I took it apart and I think I've found the problem. Assuming yours isn't on the antenna itself, then open it up and take a look inside where it plugs in to the dock. Use a magnifying glass if you have to. On mine there is a little soldered joint that broke. I'm still trying to figure out how to solder somethnig that small, but I will come up with a solution soon, I hope.
I switch my radio between my car and work vehicles, and always take it off the dock when I'm working/leaving my car wherever. So I suspect that after a few years of that joint flexing, and moving it finally broke.

Also, as the iron shiek would probably say "gently caress THE ERIC THE MIDGET, HE IS A CHEAP JEW enjoyable human being SON OF A BITCH, I WILL gently caress HIS rear end AND MAKE HIM HUMBLE"!!!

You might try solder paste. (Just don't confuse it with flux which is nowhere near the same thing).

So the show is gonna be done at 10:00 no matter what now. I know he hasn't stuck to it before but it's gonna be for real this time. I just don't get why the wrap up show is only an hour. It really makes no sense. He should let them create their own content and form a new show off of it since there is no other original content besides Farrell. The state of the channels is really depressing to me right now. (

I think this is passive aggressive Howard. He didn't get a huge contract this time around, so his response is, "Fine, I'm obligated to provide X hours of live content at a minimum, and that's exactly what I am going to provide!"

Opie from O&A is doing the same thing right now, and it's even worse than Howard's temper tantrum. He'll cut people off mid sentence or just dump the show in the middle of interesting discussions once 10 hits.

I don't think so. Otherwise The Wrap Up Show would be ending at 12:00 instead of 11:00. I can see this being the case for the next 5 years.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure ending at 10:00 is a permanent thing. Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll stretch it out to 10:30 if he's having fun.

So I was watching Inside Edition this morning and they were doing a spotlight on the homeless guy with the perfect voice. Sometime into the bit they play a soundbite of Howard saying it has to be a hoax, to which the guy says 'Oh Howard, Howard rules as far as I'm concerned.' and then the host says 'No not really!'

It really is insane how Howard isn't respected in his medium, at least to a degree.

It's a hoax in the sense that it was first presented as if he were some random crackhead, but it turns out that he was a radio voiceover guy who became a crackhead. Although, Howard was under the impression that the whole thing was just a goofy radio stunt.

Ferrall has been on fire about this too. He spent a solid last night ripping "suits" and the business side of radio in general. I think in the end bubba got lucky. 3 years ago Sirius dared him to go back to terrestrial figuring he would fail and come groveling back to them. Well he's had some success and so when Sirius tried to put the screws to him, unlike O&A, Howard and Scotty, he had already set up a place to land. And as much as Howard gives Bubba poo poo for building his own studio it made him independent of any one company and lets him do the radioio thing really easily.

That's my understanding of it. Bubba has described this week as a "soft launch" and the full lineup starts rolling out over the next few weeks.

Weird, maybe your firewalled up for some reason on ports 8000 and 9000. According to their FAQ, those are the ports they stream on.

Howard gives anybody poo poo for thinking outside of the box, like he did to Richard yesterday. Maybe the reason no one gives him respect because he's just part of the old school that helped radio become a lacking medium today. Still, you have to admire how Bubba and Ferrall--both Stern employees--saw the carnage beforehand and made preparations to jump before they got really screwed.
