Tonight on GeekNights, as Scott buys an expensive camera and Rym buys some wireless equipment and ridiculous microphones, we discuss the differences between "prosumer" technology and "professional" technology. The latter isn't just better: it's more difficult to use effectively in most cases. In the news, Twitter will soon have a weak integration with Amazon, and police tell us not to use technology to solve our own crimes, while refusing themselves to use said technology to solve crimes.
Tonight brings GeekNights' triumphant return, as Rym himself returns from Istanbul by way of Germany to resume the normal show schedule! We talk about that, but not before some discussion of Toonami's return and a GeekBite of The Avengers, nevermind ConnectiCon 2012 and the changes to our web site! We return. We live. We hunger.
Tonight on GeekNights, it's just Rym talking about how we do the show, which currently involves a Shure Beta 58A, a Shure Beta 87A, 2xShure SM57s, a XENYX 1832, a Samson Scom Stereo Compressor/Expander, 2 Behringer U-Control USB soundcards, a Presonus Firestudio Mobile, a Marantz pmd660, and Adobe Audition 3.0. Mostly, this is a test of how well Rym can talk for twenty minutes nonstop.
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about being jaded. In the news, we discuss The Loudness War"
