It's good to have a consistent theme that has to do with education. Let's revel in it. This week's episode is about classroom presentation devices. The gents try to get televisions back in the classroom, and offer up some compelling arguments. Along the way they present a brief history of projectors and TVs and look at a 4k future. Along the way, the bulb-less Casio is thrown in the mix. Trust me it's more fun to listen to than to read about.

Episode #58: Mid-range Racket
In this show ripped from today's headlines, crumpled into a ball, and tossed at your kid so that she'll stop reading and go get you the remote, the guys from the High Desert welcome in February with talk of phones, when grime become patina, and dogs on couches. School tech purchasing is taken to task for spending too much on chrome books, and Lenovo is properly chastised for that little red rubber mouse thing in their keyboard.
Think of them not as two blowhards, but as a wise old aunt who isn't afraid to tell you when you're screwing up. You listen because you know she loves you and besides, maybe later she'll bring out that lemon cake she's got chilling in the icebox.

Episode #57: Full Palm Rejection
Finally the gents tackle the controversial topic of note taking apps. This knock-down, drag-out cast tells of the benefits of Notability and it's classier cousin on the Android system. On the way, they talk of iPad sleeves, iPad stands, Paper53, Procreate, Wacom tablets, and a freaky Adonit stylus. If you read this tag before the podcast, join in the fun by printing it out and drawing a line as each topic is discussed. If you do it correctly, you should see a surprise picture of a very grumpy koala bear. They are soooooo cuuuuute.
