AtRandom #14: Smart TV

Are TVs with smarts the future of our living room experience? As more and more TV sets add features and apps to their Televisions to set them apart from the fields of flatscreen TVs that you can find on the market nowadays, we take a look into Smart TVs and try to figure out if it’s just a buzz-word being applied to the natural progression of the TV set or whether it actually represents a significant change in the Television watching experience of the future.

AtRandom #12: Ubuntu 11.10

I’ve been a Windows user about as long as I’ve been using computers, and that’s not because I’m a Windows fanboy – it’s because I simply don’t know any better. I can rage at Windows and its foibles with the best of them, so I’m more than open to the idea of an OS that runs smoothly, efficiently, and constantly without the screen turning a deathly shade of deepest blue.

After a brief burst of british summer, we retreat back into our rooms that are handily shielded by large, bright computer screens and piles of technology. In our seventh episode of AtRandom we take another look at how Google+ is evolving a month on from our initial preview. We’re excited to introduce our first guest to the show, as Chris Brennan introduces Padder; An iPad magazine, for iPad users, published exclusively on the iPad. Chris talks about the process that went into developing Padder and what goes in to writing an issue.
