With all that talk of conferences last week, we decided to head back to the CES  2011 footage to bring you the best consumer products.  Check out the SHOW PAGE for details about Tom’s interviews with some of the biggest names on the floor at this year’s show.  3D TVs – check. Connected appliances – check. A Watson of your very own – we are working on it.

We have some great shows coming up over the next month.  Tony Bradley and Gabe are slated to drop in before too long along with new guests and topics.

Listen to the show on 1100 KFNX’s website on Sunday at 5pm EST and 3pm MST.  Click the KFNX logo on the right to go to their site.  Check the SHOW PAGE early next week for the Week In Review links and commercial free podcast.

Along with Interop and Contingency Planning & Management 2011 West in Vegas, we are also looking to the west for the frontier this week.  Not the one where little doggies get along, but the ever closer mobile customer movement.  Everyday people are added to the smartphone craze.  They turn on apps that know where they are, what they like …and present a growing opportunity to offer them deals. People are happy to tell you a $400 phone just saved them $.99 on a burrito. Good for them.

Josh Schiffman is on this week to prep business owners on what people are doing with those phones and connected devices, what they are looking for, and ways to identify if this is a strategy for your business to pursue.

Jump to the SHOW PAGE to find out more.  Listen on Sunday or get the podcast early next week with the Week In Review links

Have a great weekend!





All things must come to an end…

Unless you are talking about your inbox’s capacity.  You can either pay your email provider for more disk storage or incorporate the cloud into your file management strategy.  Sending emails with giant attachments gets old quick – and expensive if you are paying by the bit. Instead of ducking, put those attachments in the cloud.

Brian Curry from YouSendIt will help you corral your inbox quota using the cloud to get those attachments under control.  Find out more on the SHOW PAGE.  If you have an overloaded inbox, this is the show for you. We’ll also give you two great reasons to go to Vegas in May – Interop and CPM 2010 West.

If you use Gmail, your free producer tip of the week is to take Gmail’s priority inbox to the next step using the ‘Super Nick Email System’. Never look at an email more than twice again.





We’ll never tell…

Ok, we will tell.  2010 brought some great guests to TechTalk.  So many, we have some great conference coverage from the last couple of months bring the year to a close.

This week, we are excited to bring you a new Week In Review followed by our coverage of this year’s INTEROP NYC. Check out the SHOW PAGE for more info.

As for the rest of the year, we will air coverage from Contingency Planning and Management 2010 East, Federal Alliance of Safe Homes (or FLASH) and start 2011 the same way we started 2010 – with our NY Government Technology Forum coverage from the Brooklyn Marriott.

That’s all we can tell you for now.  We don’t want to spoil the surprise.

We’ll be on Sunday at 5pm EST and 3pm MST on 1100 KFNX.  Click the logo on the right of the page to visit KFNX and try out the live stream so you are ready to go.

While we are still putting together our coverage from this year’s Interop in New York City that is just wrapping up, Tom will be on Sunday with Shashi Bellamkonda, Social Media Swami.  Shashi was at BlogWorld this week and is going to educate us on social media and customer service etiquette.  Find out more on the SHOW PAGE.

Our RSS readers are going overtime this week.  Apple’s announcements, New York City made a big announcement about its relationship with Microsoft along with plenty of new product hype with companies looking to take any holiday dollars people are looking to spend.  Speaking of, we are trying to get our hands on some gadgets to review and bring to you.  If you have any products you think we should give a spin before you do, let us know by emailing techtalk@imi-us.com or sending us a DM on Twitter @imitechtalk.

Here are some stories to keep you busy.  This post’s picture is circa 1900 Mulberry Street from Wikipedia.

We have a great live show on deck this week!  Phillip Rodokanakis joins Tom to scare the heck out of you just in time for Halloween.  We are talking Digital Forensics this week.  What kind of data can be recovered? Encrypted hard drives, deleted browsing history along with the piles and piles of information your smart phone and iPad is racking up on you.  To find out more, check out the SHOW PAGE.

So, people in glass houses should be careful what they do on a computer, but they should also have conferences.  And there is no better glass house than New York City’s Javits Center – the home of Interop New York 2010.   Along with coverage from the floor and sessions next week, we are also excited to have the show’s general manager Lenny Heymann call in to kick the conference off live on TechTalk!  Lenny will give an overview of the event and details about keynote speakers, sessions and some of the many exhibitors at this year’s event.

Along with the Interop Kick Off, our Week in Review has unicorn meat from the Wall Street Journal about a Verizon-ready iPhone, how your NYC subway ride is about to get more annoying and we’ll tell you all about a former water storage tank that was turned into a data center if we have the time. For the link to listen and the spot where the podcast will drop, head over to this week’s SHOW PAGE.
