Dam Vegas

  • Welcome
  • Relying on friends in Vegas
  • My Mixology Party: planning a party with Chrystal, choosing cocktails for the party, making the drill, pimping the drink recipes page, Domain Canton ginger martini, Spapeople’s shooter, Shelly’s extra strong drinks, Jen Tucker thinks I tried to kill her, rowdy podcasters, high and dry for dinner/spensive enchiladas
  • More Vegas highlights: Mesa Grill (yum!), Frank’s Dam Tour (dam!), Petrosian Paris bar in the Bellagio (booze and beauty!), Vegas geography (it’s right next to…), streets of Paris (elegant!), Shelly wants to gamble her pocket change, video poker learnin (loser!), farewell party (silly!)
  • The expo: smaller this year
  • Shelly the squealer
  • Tech Talk feedback: iPod Touch, now with more callers
  • Feedback City
  • Shelly’s Podcast Theatre

Touchy Feely

  • Properly caffeinated and sealed in
  • Watching (and destroying) watermelons
  • Frank is a big bleeder. He has many mugs
  • Rushing to New Orleans
  • iTouch myself: buying an iPod in Houston, no lines, checking out apps, Mobile News makes the sale, app developers can overcome tiny Safari type sizes, lumpy 3G iPhones, pre-buyers’ remorse
  • The Touch as an Internet device: great with free wi-fi environments, no constant alert option, cool YouTube embed integratio
  • More touching next week. Which apps do you like?
  • Cocktail Talk: See, new segment name!, liquid seminars, pace yourself, morning scotch tasting, all about rye, lovely liqueurs, cocktail schwag,
  • Feedback City
