A critical vote is happening on December 14th. Net Neutrality is at stake as the FCC is trying to revoke Title II status for Internet Service Providers. We decided we need to unpack everything that means by having a spirited argument for and against net neutrality. Joined by guest hosts Juan Carlos Bagnell and David V. Kimball, we argue both sides of the Net Neutrality coin. Join us! Tekbeard is: Adam Doud - http://www.twitter.com/DeadTechnology Clifton M.

With the smartphone market already dominated by two heavy hitters - Samsung and Apple - what is a new OEM to do? How can a new smartphone maker compete? Fortunately, we already have a few examples of what to do and what not to do drawn from history. We discuss those phone makers, what they could've/should've done differently, and what others should do in the future in this episode of the TekBeard podcast.

Cord cutting is a new thing in the world today. Time was that we subscribed to a cable or satellite TV service, and that was it. You got 220 channels of useless crap, and one channel you watched - probably had dancers or pawn shops on it or something.But now, you can pick and choose the apps and services you want, leading to a more a la carte experience. And we’ve been testing it, and now we’re ready to present our results. Tekbeard is: Adam Doud - http://www.twitter.com/DeadTechnology Clifton M.

Don't call it a comeback the great bard, LL once said. But that's exactly what is happening here with not one, not two, but THREE smartphone brands this year. Three oldies but Goldie's are making waves in the space, risen from the dead like so many religious and comic book metaphors.

It’s not easy being green, nor it is cheap. It is necessary? Is it even beneficial? There are so many questions that surround the topic of “going green” that cover everything from Teslas to recycling to roofing materials. It’s not always as straightforward as you think and in some cases, might actually be hurting the planet? Please take a moment to check out our sponsor - The Mighty Mug Thanks to Mighty Mug - The Mug That Won't Tip Over - for sponsoring TekBeard!

Son, Sit back and let me tell you about a time when Palm was going to release one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year. A time when Blackberry was on the rise, and not a superpower in smartphones. A time when Nokia’s new feature phone was a hot item and Snake was the game everyone wanted to play. Yes, my son, let me tell you about...3 months ago. TekBeard is: Adam Doud - @DeadTechnology Clifton M.
