As usual this week we start off talking about the weather but this must have angered the weather gods because Elisa got knocked off the podcast shortly afterwards due to power failure. But Mike and Melissa soldier on talking about password managers, specifically 1Password and Lastpass. They discuss prices, features and ease of use.
This week we are going to drive you crazy talking about cars. We discuss how we shop for cars, what we like and the experiences we had car shopping.
For our picks we shop for our ultimate cars, money is no object. First Elisa wants a Acura MDX for driving around. Melissa went crazy and got a Porsche Cayenne, most importantly in purple. And Mike is going back to his roots with a Jeep Gladiator Pickup.
This week we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing. Mike recalls the actual landing (he’s an old fart) and we discuss the facts surrounding it.
From there we move on to movies. We discuss our favorite movies, what we like about them and why we love them.
Finally we move on to our picks which is based on the weather we’re having (it’s Melissa’s weather hot). First Melissa wants to make a splash with a pool. Next Elisa wants her room to be as dry as her humor with a dehumidifier. And to round us out Mike wants to be cool no matter where he goes with a personal air conditioner.
This week (after the weather report of course) we start out with a PSA from Elisa about checking your bill and standing your ground when it comes to what you’re being charged for. Then Melissa tells us of her modem woes and what it took to resolve it (kinda). Then Mike tells of his experience of using Car Play in his new Toyota.
We start out talking about Mike’s work ethic which then leads to Melissa asking parenting advice on how to motivate her kids to do chores. This leads to us talking about how we raised and taught our kids to be responsible adults. From there it morphs to the importance of community in our lives. Melissa asks about how much information we share on social media, what our comfort level is and what our security measures are.
Geeky Powers Activate! In a special crossover episode of Geekiest Show Ever and 3 Geeky Ladies we combine forces to fix Apple’s problems. You’re welcome. Topic range from the operating systems, hardware and software issues, services, upgradeability to subscription services and Photos. But we also have some positive things to say. Tune in to find out.
First Mike regales everyone with tales of his Snowmageddon that hit the Midwest. Everyone else’s weather was just peach by comparison. Then we have a discussion about Mike’s hard drive failure which then turns to a dialogue about backups and redundancy. This leads to what to do with your digital heritage upon your ultimate demise.
After some discussion of the weather (Mike’s finally happy with his), we talk about Mike’s new podcast. He talks about the creating and submitting his new creation. We also examine using Twisted Wave , Blog Touch Pro , Simplenote, Box.com and Anchor.fm for his tablet only production of his podcast.
Then we look at Apple’s announcement this week. We were not terribly excited about it but, your mileage may vary.
From there we move on to our picks. First Mike, in keeping with his tablet podcast production, wants the iPad Mini. With the hope of spring to come Elisa wants a new grill. And Melissa just wants to sit down on a new loveseat.
