Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the reason why we have such trouble coming up with good Monday show ideas. We almost do a show about printers and printing along the way.
In the news, Rym runs fast enough to stave off the inexorable advance of age another year, Carnegie Hall doesn't have modern ticketing technology, chip-enabled credit cards in the US are about as effective as the goggles, often compromised from simple POS malware, a foldable phone appears, bikes are faster than cars, and we'll be live at PAX Unplugged!
If you want to join Rym and Scott Enforcing at PAX East, applications are open!
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider what's changed for us between 1998, 2008, and 2018. It's a meta show about our lives and what we've been up to. In the news, we're playing some PUBG, the World Cup is happening, Koko the gorilla has died, Cannabis is legal in Canada and may soon be in New York.
Tonight on GeekNights, we don't do a tech news roundup, but we basically do a tech news roundup based on suggested topics from the listener. We will possibly alter the format of the Monday show, so let us know your thoughts. In the news, Intel Launches 8th Generation Core CPUs, back up your files, and IOS 11 has a cop mode.

Tonight on GeekNights, Twitter plays GeekNights as we do a show about what we should do a show about, seeded with suggestions from the listener. In the news, a legend of a man, sorely needed in these times, passes away. We'll miss you, Muhammad Ali. AI is learning to play Atari games like a human child would. Old people have no idea what we're on about, but Hillary Clinton's campaign went a little Bulworthy.
Tonight on GeekNights, Scott literally forgot to come to the studio, so rather than demonstrate the GeekNights process to our studio guest, I put Judith (@loltsundere) on the spot and made her a guest host. So what do we talk about? A bunch of meta about how GeekNights is made. Also Adventure Time, Teen Titans Go, Gay Marriage Victory, how horrible Louisiana is, the ridiculous Neckbeard Benghazi that is "#gamergate", and a bunch of other stuff. It's totally fun.
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.
