65Bits Episode 119: Freshly Squeezed and MmMMM Good

We’re shaking it up with a spot of Magic and Android goodness. Tastes so good in the morning don’t you think? We also talk about HP’s spot of battery trouble and worry frantically about Google *GASP* going down! Say it isn’t so! Microsoft tries to squeese Apple for every last drop of juicy goodness they’ve got but we all know Apple’s got a few tricks up their sleeves. We worry about Nextbus and hope that it won’t be dropped. This week, our major stories include the recycling of Electronics in Singapore – Futurisitic babble or something we must do today and now. And we discuss ideas for the upcoming Code Extreme Apps. Let’s get coding people!

[38:40] Byte of the Week : VLC

  • uhmmm for the byte of the week, ive actually moved on from VLC to Gom Player. it just works better at less than 5MB. 🙂

    • GOM player isn’t multi-platform, neither is it as customisable or powerful. Also, it still relies on Windows Media Player to some extent.
