In this latest episode we start with news that Dune is set to start shooting soon and the central cast is listed. It appears it is not a remake but a complete reimagining of the story, with promise it is going to be close to the book. At least it does not have Dwayne “the Rock” in it like some many other dismal remakes over the last few years. Also it is not a Disney remake or a Marvel movie so it should be completely different and fun. Next up we discuss how Epic is possibly “stealing” personal data from Steam and the possible implications involved. That’s right, Bill Gates has warned of the arrogance of software developers/studios etc catching the attention of governments and here is a prime example. This is right on the heels of Google being fined by the European Union again. We also hear about a possible link between Epic and the Chinese government from the Professor; who also raises the question of who is stealing the data. Last topic of the week is the break-through in Quantum Physics that will see a need for new textbooks to be printed. The best part about it is that some of the people involved are from Brisbane. That’s right folks, roll up and admire the great minds delving into physics and shaking the world from Brisbane. Remember to take care of each other and stay hydrated, till next time, stay Nerdy.Read More

This week we have the DJ impersonating Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh, and no the only jackass is Buck. The first topic is the upcoming release of a new series of Sailor Moon, such an awesome series. Also it is interesting that anime has so many series and movies with a strong female lead and yet Hollywood struggles to do the same.
The Professor has news about the new Half-life game which has been 14 years in the making. It is looking sweet, so I guess we might be hearing more about it. We also talk about the fact that there were different variations of Half-life released origionally due to the violent nature of the game. Except Singapore where it was apparently banned due to excessive violence (So many lines I could use here to). This leads into one our trademark tangential conversation about different games and various factors that we interesting.
For the cat lovers Buck has news about a new brush for grooming your moggy or tabby and the science behind it. That’s right, science has been employed to help groom cats, and Buck found it interesting. You will be hanging on the edge of your seats either with excitement or fear that cats are taking over the world. Buck says don’t worry on that score as the Penguins won’t allow it.Read More
