Nic's Tech Tour, The Female Takeover and Who Beat Black Sabbath?

  • Print

Nic took over this week’s “Tech Tour” and brought two new items of business to the forefront. First off, a startup company called Mixamo has raised $11 million to ensure that your smartphone games look as smooth and clean as possible, but now they are also looking to create 3-D games. That can only mean Candy Crush and Words with Friends will soon be in three dimensions. Lookout! Second, we learned about the Leap Motion Controller, which essentially replaces your keyboard and mouse with motions and gestures. Think of it like you would the Kinect or Wii, but for your computer.  An app called DexType has also joined in on the motion fun. It works with the Leap Motion Controller and allows you to basically type in mid-air as you would on a keyboard. Yeah, just click here for more info.

The ladies are taking over and we like it! Most people know Natasha Lyonne as Jessica from American Pie, but you can also find her on the Netflix original series, Orange is the New Black. She joined the show this morning to chat about that and also told us if a second season will be happening or not. Peep on the trailer below and check out for our full interview from today's show. 

Less than an hour after we got off the phone with Natasha, Stephanie Sparks of The Golf Channel popped by the studio. She came in to talk about everything golf and of course, the current Boise Open. Click right here for the full audio from Stephanie's visit and find more info on the Boise Open right here.

We should’ve known that throwing Black Sabbath into a song fight would end in a bloodbath. Well, that was yesterday. Today, Sabbath somehow got bumped from what looked like was going to be complete and total Cage Match domination. Emphatic edged out the Ozzman and Co. by just one vote. Tune in tomorrow to check out the song titled "Remember Me" one more time as it goes up against some new Sevendust.

Nic - II    Big J - I

Monday - Happy Birthday Peter Loeffler! Hard to pick a favorite Chevelle song which is probably why there was a tie between Anj's choice of The Clincer and Big J's choice of Send the Pain Below. Tie it is.  

Tuesday -  Songs that could use subtitles that make sense?  The tie goes to Nic with his choice of Pearl Jam Yellow Leadbetter although Big J's choice of Static X Cannibal was just as inaudiable.

Wednesday -  Happy Birthday Spike Jones!  Thank You for the awesome videos you gave us. Today's rock war ends in yet ANOTHER TIE.  Nic's choice of Tenacious D Wonderboy beats Big J's choice of Beastie Boys Sabotage.  Hard to chose for sure but somebody has to come out victorious. 

Thursday -  Reality shows are everywhere!  What band would you tune in to watch week after week?  Big J wins with All that Remains Stand up beating Nic's Puddle of Mudd Give me Shelter choice. 

Friday - In honor of Mark Zuckerberg delivering a speech in Chinese we will war with bilingual songs. Big J's Romstein America beats out  Nic's Beck Loser.
