    OMG/JK: A Kiss For iPad 2, A Slap For Xoom

    It’s war! This week, I went to the unveiling of the iPad 2 and got some hands-on time with the device afterwards. Meanwhile, Jason bought a Xoom and has been extensively testing it out. The consensus? iPad 2: Good. Xoom: Bad. At least for now. I haven’t extensively played with iPad 2 yet, and Google is undoubtedly going to patch the Xoom. But still, first impressions are key. Jason… Read More

    OMG/JK: Where There Are Tablets, There's Love

    There’s no better way to spend your Valentine’s Day than a new episode OMG/JK (I’ve been practicing my rhyming). So grab some chocolates, pull up a chair, and hold your laptop close as you sit back for this week’s show. This episode is all about tablets. From rumors about the iPad 2 (and 3!) to HP’s upcoming WebOS tablets, it’s been a big week. We also touch… Read More

    OMG/JK: Apple Straight-Arms The Competition As Honeycomb Prepares For Kick-Off

    It’s Super Bowl Sunday, which means there’s a decent chance you’re about to zone out in front of the television for the next several hours. But before you do that, why not tune in to the latest episode of OMG/JK — where my colleague MG Siegler and I discuss the surprise calls and bone-crushing, competitive maneuvers taking place on the gridiron of Silicon Valley.

    OMG/JK: Massive Google Fragments (And An iPod Nano Watch!)

    This week’s episode of OMG/JK, the show I do on TechCrunch TV alongside Jason Kincaid, is all Google all the time. So just to even things out a bit, we kick things off by showing off my awesome new TikTok iPod nano wristwatch. For those who don’t remember, this is the result of the most successful Kickstarter project ever. We then dive into the Google stuff including Eric Schmidt… Read More

    OMG/JK: Pushing Google's Nonexistent Buttons

    Earlier this week we had a special episode of OMG/JK to mark the launch of the Verizon iPhone, but we’re already back for more. I know what you’re thinking: this may be the best week, ever. In this episode we discuss recent rumors about the iPad 2 — which will likely come with a new, higher resolution screen and a SD card slot. We also take a look at the rumors that the iPad… Read More

    OMG/JK: The Verizon iPhone And The End Of An Era

    We’re approaching an end of an era. A time when MG Siegler, my cohost on OMG/JK, will no longer be forced to struggle with AT&T on a daily basis. Soon, he will be equipped with a phone that will actually be able to make phone calls. And Seth the Blogger Guy will be able to breathe a little easier. Because soon, MG — and millions of other people — will have the… Read More

    OMG/JK: Shiny Hats And Crystal Balls

    It’s time for a special New Years-themed edition of OMG/JK, and we’ve really gone all out with our costumes. From shiny hats to incredibly cheap kazoos, we’re ready to ring in 2011 with a bang. Oh, and we’ve got some technology to talk about. Because there hasn’t been much major news in the tech world this week, we decided to spend most of the show discussing some… Read More

  • Samsung Nexus S, Yahoo to Kill Delicio.Us and Google OS

    OMG/JK: Gingerbread Has Never Tasted So Delicious

    After a brief hiatus (MG was spreading the Apple gospel in Paris during Le Web), we’re back for the latest episode of OMG/JK. There’s been a lot of big news in the last couple weeks, so we had a lot to talk about. In this episode we give our first impressions of the Nexus S (MG still likes his iPhone, naturally). We also take a stab at ChromeOS, which both of us have had on our… Read More

    OMG/JK: Mistletoe, AirPlay, And Other Forms Of Near Field Communication

    It’s Black Friday, which means that many of you woke up this morning at the crack of dawn, shrugged off your Thanksgiving food comas, and made your way to the dreary parking lots of electronic stores across the country. Right about now, you’re probably just waking up from your recovery nap — and there’s nothing better to get your sluggish mind back on track than… Read More

    OMG/JK: The Path To A World With No Subject Lines

    Just in time for the weekend, it’s time for another episode of TechCrunch TV’s OMG/JK. Even better, this is a special episode, because we spend the show talking about two especially big topics, instead of our usual three. Get excited.

    OMG/JK: Yeah, I’ll Reciprocate Your Middle Finger

    It’s been a busy week in the tech world: A new web browser wants to make your entire browsing experience more social. Google and Facebook are doing battle over contacts, openness, and reciprocity. And Adobe and Apple are sparring (again). All of which is a recipe for a great episode of OMG/JK. Tune in to watch us trade jabs, witticisms, and, occasionally, small bursts of insight. And have… Read More

    OMG/JK: Attack Of The Anthropomorphized Smartphones!

    It’s finally happened. MG’s love for all things Apple has manifested itself in physical form, and he now wears an iPhone to work every day. The doctors say we should try to make him feel like this is normal, so I’ve taken to donning a matching Android handset. Clashes are frequent — the hallway leading to TC HQ literally isn’t big enough for both of us, and the… Read More

  • The Possible Effect of Facebook Places on FourSquare

    OMG/JK: Facebook Places Is Here. Let's Locate The Dead Bodies.

    This week for OMG/JK, the show on TechCrunch TV that I do with fellow writer Jason Kincaid, we decided to switch things up a bit. Because there was a major announcement, Facebook Places, that we both covered, we decided to devote the entire show to that one topic. Yes, it’s a little longer than usual (about 20 minutes), but I think the conversation is pretty interesting and… Read More
