Rubenerd Show Milestone (first phone message left), hard disk space woes, an impromptu Ruben's Review (surviving Lynx BodySpray), and a tech style Ruben's Review (Samsung SyncMaster 910T).
My sporadic slice-of-life nonsense show I've been doing since 2005 from wherever I happen to be. You'd think I'd have a better tagline by now!
Been on hiatus since 2010, but hope to pick it up again soon.
Reactions to the music-free episodes, Ruben's bad luck with tech (old iPod, V3 RAZR and MacBook Pro), the iBook which has never let down, the Telecom New Zealand resignation, The Top 5 (signs it's too cold!), and an AppleCare centre adventure (warranty confusion).
The kitchen is the centre of the house, living with Kevin (Singapore) and Chris (Hong Kong), still no music and Ruben's Review (Adium, world class instant message client that supports ICQ, AOL, MSN, Google Talk, Yahoo etc for Mac OS X).
Recorded by a very tired Ruben at 5:55am! Talking about time travel, timezones, Whole Wheat Radio morning rants, life advice from Jim Kloss, flawed star ratings and what time of day my brain switches on... hint: it's not on yet!
Why Apple laptops look sexier than PC laptops and what PC companies should be doing, Will It Sink? (Multi-Vitamin with Omega 3 container!) and Apple telling Ruben their service centre address is a... house!
Another Rubenerd Hyperactive Special! Professionalism, disasters resolved (can access Whole Wheat Radio again, new power adaptor for my MacBook Pro), The Top Five (signs someone hates you) and emailing the awesome Stefanie Koster (with an F people!) from school in Singapore!
Ruben's MacBook Pro MagSafe power adaptor failing, using my retro iBook G3 to record the show, Rubenerd Hate Mail (from "the immature ruben?" user), and why do you delete if you believe what you wrote), and Ruben pretending to be a synthesiser.
The Mobile Phone Episode! People complaining about lack of memory in their phones, stupid ringtone subscription services that prey on children, expensive phone addons, my Motorola V3 telling me on screen that it can't charge, and McDonalds health campaign: a conflict of interests?
The Whole Wheat Radio Episode! How I found WWR in November 2004, the first morning rant I ever heard, discovering the site and becoming hooked, creating the WWR page here on this site, and listening to my first live morning rant! Audio clips from WWR by Jim Kloss and Esther Golton
