We are doing another sciency discussion about weaponized diarrhea. Amazing. Believe me. You’ll love it. We discuss flushing out cancer, new Windows 10 UI updates with “Project Nero”, and then discuss our favourite websites, what makes them great and what makes other sites really not great. Coming to you from the actual hell on earth, where standard heat maps are obsolete. With little twinkle toes and tiny ponies.
Anomalously low electronic thermal conductivity in metallic vanadium dioxide. Yes, you heard right. We have gone all sciency on you just to sound really smart….and stuff. We also discuss the amazing possibilities with wireless electricity from UBeam that uses sound waves to charge your phone, and the GlobalXplorer program making everyone a virtual archaeologist. This episode of The Dane and The Pain brought to you with rants from Joel and amazing jokes from Lars.
Welcome back to the kindergarten that is the Dane and the Pain. Who would have thought we would make to 25 shows without being shut down for having too good jokes. This time we discuss how consumer tech can help detect skin cancer, we investigate if sleep patterns really have an influence on how you function and then we shoot the breeze on acronyms of the future. With Alaskan icicles and alternative facts.
After a week off, the Dane and the Pain are back in your favourite set of headphones. This time Lars has been in London and visited the McLaren supercar factory, we talk about the amazing and ridiculous products being displayed at the Consumer Electronics Show, and then we have a tiny dig at the 45th president of the oompa loompas. Coming directly to you from Joel’s latest pair of running shoes.
We have free kittens to all children listening to the show! Okay, now that we have your attention, we are actually having our second guest on the show. Stephen Haunts will make cryptography sexy and explain why it can be scary but so incredibly important for every single user of the internet. We ask Stephen all the hard questions and pretend we have any idea what he is talking about. Now, where did we put the leftover eggnog and Christmas pudding…
Happy New Year little vegemites! The Dane and The Pain are continuing into 2017 with amazing jokes, bravado and much excitement. Both our listeners want to hear more, so here we are. This episode explores disruptions to traditional businesses, by using technology. We discuss how gaming companies are winning on social media and how you might not know the biggest one of them all. And then finally solving social crisis using big data. From the magic kingdom of Joel’s beard.
Ho ho hoooooo and a bottle of rum. We are full of Christmas and have prepared a completely inclusive episode of all people on earth. The Dane and The Pain has been nominated to podcast of the year (yes, really), we look at tech gadgets from then and now, talk about Christmas memories and then have an extensive list of best presents for your feline companions. Brought to you by white beards, reindeers and itty bitty cookies with milk.
Do you always watch a movie scene with two people in a car and wonder: Are they really driving? We don’t either. Joel and Lars dive into the Windows Hardware Engineering community event in China and the news coming out of that event, especially Windows 10 on ARM and new Holographic headsets coming soon. They comment on the Magic Leap debacle about raising billions on a wish and then make some bold 2017 tech predicitons. All brought to you from The Dane & The Pain orbital headquarters. With tiny hands and bionic patellas.
This is a ranting episode of rants. Joel and Lars become even older men and have a go at new technology and what the cool kids do. Why do we need to keep breaking technology that works and move the cheese all the time? They delve into the return of the mobile giant Nokia and what they could possible have in store before looking at some of the worst and most ridiculous tech ides from the past year. Brought to you from the radioactive capital of Alaska.
Have you ever dreamed of travelling to Mars. Well, keep that thought. In this week’s show Joel and Lars have cooked up a nice homely thanksgiving dinner with sumptuous lab-made meat, some delicious wood filled bio jet fuel and for dessert some pilot-wave theory as a controversial interpretation of quantum mechanics that differs from the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics that states that particles do not have defined locations until they are observed. Bon Appetite.
