This week on the Girls Out Loud, Maya and Cristina discuss the news on a pretty slow news week– Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! We do marvel over our country’s tech savvy greedy youth (or ARE they?), whether Groupon’s next move should be to take money or to sell to Google, the new Netflix stream only plan, and the funky way Facebook censored out all mentions of Lamebook on their site for a few hours and we all thought that was quite distasteful of them. And did we mention happy turkey day? … Continue Reading
This week on the Girls Out Loud Show, get ready for a new voice on set! Cristina couldn’t record a show so Maya got her friend Jenn to fill in, and we’re in for a treat! Maya and Jenn got emotional over John C Dvorak’s brash outpourings about Google, were ashamed for Digg when they’re not ashamed of themselves, questioned the Twitter+Ping partnership, pondered the rise of our tablet society, and cheered on streaming music over downloads. The more girls, the merrier!
In Episode 17, Maya and Cristina explore the difficult question of male and female equality, at least as it relates to a proposition passed in Massachusetts to legalize the ability for women to walk around outside, topless, as men do. Additionally fascinating topics are the not so new and hardly revolutionary holographic developments, Google’s mistakes both in products and in management structures, Facebook’s latest product release (per usual) and Peter Thiel funding research about immortality. A great week for dorky news! … Continue Reading
This week on Girls Out Loud, Maya and Cristina marvel over several things in both positive and negative ways; we marvel positively that Google is offering personal servants as a perk to its employees, about some awesome apps in GoogleTV, and what big news Facebook Places Deals are, if they are real. Some very un-positive marveling comes at the mention of the horrifying story of the Zynga obsessed young mom who killed her baby for interrupting Farmville, and Digg’s ironic use of its own platform to fake-Digg news items. … Continue Reading
In Episode 15, Maya and Cristina discuss the earnings calls of the largest public tech companies including Google, Yahoo and most interestingly, Apple. While Steve Jobs contributed to the never-ending Google-Apple pissing match, the Apple stock suffered by consequence. The girls also discuss their never-ending Facebook obsession with the latest privacy breach and our endless Twitter shouts that seem to go ignored. … Continue Reading
In Episode 14, Maya and Cristina get caught up in the wonders of the amazing technological advances being made daily by the smartest folks on earth, including Google and the development and reveal of self-driven cars (140,000 miles already driven, people!) and a world where everything was monitored by extremely sensitive sensors that would be aware of things…way before we could ever be. … Continue Reading
During Episode 13, Maya and Cristina debate the merits of grunting during tennis, what the new Facebook announcements of the day were (groups, downloadable data, and applications privacy dashboards), the latest in military technology (the iron man suit! IRL!) and the weird looking Gap logo redesign. Post-modernist weirdness, anyone? … Continue Reading
