Hi guys,
Question for Bill Stebbins, how in heck does he backup 8TB? Or doesn’t he?
Listen to the show every week, along with the Simulcast! :-)

Cheers,

I have a bit of unusual question this time.
Do you know of any old style turn-by-turn strategy game for Android?
I was a huge fan of “Master of Orion 2″. Kind of civilizations in space, and I recently got a craving for it again.
but since my primary computer has been an Asus transformer for the past 9 months, I was hoping you knew of something similar.

Also, what do you think of the vergecast doing listener call-ins?
They do some decent blogging, but I’m not sure they should interact with humans.
Their heads, in my opinion, are just too big for that kind of thing…

Keep up the good work.

Hey guys,
It seems like the Pogoplug has fallen out of favor with you, as far as online storage is concerned, and since mine just up and died the other day , I’m curious as to what y’all use for cloud storage, and/or what you would recommend.  I could probably get away with 50GB or so and free would be great, but most importantly ease of access of the information, with streaming being a possibility.  An Android app (like Pogoplugs) would be nice
As a side note, I don’t hear much about the Acer Iconia A500 tablet and I just wanted to tout it’s exceptional performance.  I have Transformer and Galaxy tablets in the house (and of course the obligatory “Dumb-pad”) and it easily outperforms them all.  Plus it was only $299 on sale!  Just my 2 cents,  Thanks for the info-tainment!
Bruce
