WinExtra Daily BriefIn advance Steven wants to apologize for some problems we had with Skype during the recording today’s show. It was only a minor problem until just after we mentioned Miley Cryus at which point we had to let Steve Ballmer take over.

If you are wondering how the hell we managed to transition from Miley to Baldy you’ll just have to watch the show.

Podcast: WinExtra On Windows #04 D8 – The Cool, The Boring And The Sweaty

WinExtra On WindowsThis past week All Things D held their annual D8 conference where all the big wigs from the tech world congregate to be interviewed by Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg. The high and low points for this conference were obviously the appearance of His Jobness, Steve Jobs, as well as Steve Ballmer with Ray Ozzie in tow, and of course the VC darling of the moment Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook.

In today’s show Steven and I discuss the lackluster (to put it kindly)  appearance of Ballmer and Ozzie and how six months from now it will be Steve Jobs’ time on stage that anyone will remember. As well we diverge for a few moment due to an interchange between Jason Calacanis and Mark Zuckerberg about privacy that Calacanis later expanded in an email.

We finish off with a discussion about the future of the PC and some interesting thoughts about our growing wireless and mobile world.

Podcast: WinExtra On Windows #03 – The Schizophrenia Of Microsoft

WinExtra On WindowsDespite the adverse conditions Steven and I managed to record episode number 3 of our weekly Microsoft focused podcast yesterday.

What do I mean by adverse conditions?  My air conditioning dropped out for a while yesterday, got stuck in stores and shopping queues against my will, the internet connection was being flaky, and I discovered that I need some sort of a power smooth device in order to eliminate a pain in the ass buzz from my podcast kit. The thunder and lightning were out in full force threatening to knock out the power.

But we still got episode number 3 knocked out and it’s also the  very first episode of WinExtra On Windows that I’ve recorded from Mobile Alabama.

Today’s show starts out with us continuing last week’s mention of Spindex with a follow up on another FUSE Labs release called Emporia, which for a lack of better understanding is a Twitter and blog search engine with specific channels of interest.

This leads into a bit if chatter about Silverlight and Apple’s toppling of Microsoft from the top of the market cap game. At which point we delve into a little bit of analysis of Apple vs Microsoft and the involvement of the DoJ which is beginning an investigation into Apple and it’s business practices as far as their music business is concerned.

Of course as with most things Microsoft our conversation ends up centered around Stave Ballmer and how people, and Microsoft, seem to forget just how open the company is becoming when it comes to their software projects.
