Feedback and items of Note:
Hey guys, I have been enjoying playing some classic NES and Atari 2600 games on my ouya. These include super Mario bros., Duck Tales, Top Gun, Frogger, and Pitfal! I have decided to make a video game for the ouya . It would be an in-depth fire fighter simulator. It would be way better than the stupid wii game, Real Heros. I will be aiming for its completion in April of 2015, for my dads birthday. He is a fire fighter and would love a game that actually got it right. The few fire fighter games that have been released either put too mutch restriction on what you can do, such as you can’t walk around the station while waiting to get a call or even having random call outs period. Or having medical calls and performing CPR on a person who’s heart has stoped. Many game developers just don’t care. But by the amount of people who have downloaded fire fighter mods for GTA 4, people would enjoy this game. It will be made by a 14 year old and his hackintosh. I hope to port it to iOS, Android, and Mac. Gozer, shure you want to get rid of your ouya? They have Sega emulators. P.S. ALL THE GAMES ARE FREE!!As always love the show

Hi fellow geeks, I am a bit behind since I’m only listening on commutes and am doing Insanity workout DVDs instead of running during winter (usually listen to podcasts while running) So this will be off topic. One item i hope you will help with for a new dad, is baby proofing tech. My wife has joined some mommy groups and will eventually need to host, and our house is far from toddler ready. My daughter is only 3 months, but the point when she will start to be able to push buttons and walk around is coming, plus play dates from the mommy group will bring even more little button pushers. I am mildly afraid for them touching wires, more of unplugging or messing with home automation devices and so on. One thing comes to mind is how to keep a kid from throwing a remote or something else at a big screen TV, hmm.
On the geek front, starting next year I will be embarking on touch screen coffee table computer version 2.0. Will update on how it goes, want to have it ready by Superbowl Sunday.
