T.R.I.P. Episode 38 - Random References and Hollywood Hooplah

Recorded November 7, 2012

Now that Kevin is back you get to hear the entire discussion on the Disney/Lucasfilm deal... and the conversation somehow veers off into idol worship for Joss Whedon before Joe can get them off the subject. But we do have tech news! And - SURPRISE! - most of it is NOT about Apple. RIM gets more deathwatch cred, there's new battery tech to go along with the amplifier tech we talked about last week, and someone has created Star Wars origami.

As an added bonus, we engage in some Inside Joke Theater!

Movember News

You may recall from last week that Joe is participating in Movember to raise awareness for men's health. In order to make a difference I need your help. My commitment is to grow a moustache for the month of November and by changing my appearance, raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.

I am asking you to help support my personal journey by making a donation. The size of the donation isn’t important, every little bit helps Movember continue its funding of world-class programs.

Please donate to me by:
*Donating online at:
*Writing a check payable to 'Movember', referencing my Registration ID: 4260065 and mailing it to: Movember, PO Box 2726, Venice CA 90294-2726
