NJ: TechTV

Still haven't had my coffee yet.

Spent the morning trying to read and but it looks like they were Slashdotted. Sad.

I did grab the torrent for the first SYSTM episode, and finally got around to grabbing the torrents for This Week In Tech. Now I just need to get the torrents for the Canadian version of Call For Help, and I can pretend that the G4-TechTV tragedy never happened.

Don't know what I'm talking about? Congratulations, you're not a complete tech nerd.

Sigh. I miss ZDTV. Crying 2


  1. Ah nuts, I know exactly what you're talking about.

    I haven't had a chance to watch SYSTM yet, how was it?

  2. It was cute. Too short though, only 10 minutes. And they skip a lot of the steps, so you have to go to the website to get all the details. Basically, they made a sniffer to find unencrypted wireless camera feeds, and drove around until they found some. It was pretty cool. :-) The production was more professional than the This Week In Tech podcasts. It was like a real show, minus the commercials.

    Since there's only been one, I wonder if they're all going to be Dark Tipper-esque like this one.

  3. Except that a real show would be 22 minutes sans commercials.

  4. You're right. So, it's half a show. And yet, I still prefer 10 minutes of SYSTM over 30/60 minutes of anything left on G4TV.

  5. I watched SYSTM yesterday. It was a fun little show and I liked their graphics, but you're right, a lot of seemingly important steps are missing.

    I do like the simplicity of the box (I want one so bad. I already have like half the stuff I would need just laying around) and their show graphics were pretty sweet.
