TUAW Talkcast, 10 pm ET tonight: World Cup Hangover edition + special news
Tonight on the TUAW Talkcast: it's our World Cup hangover edition. Oh, our aching heads.
We'll raise a stein of Pilsner to the victorious German national team, talk about how Amazon and Samsung are starting to see some of the agita that plagued Apple in recent years, and on top of all that: a very special announcement about the future of the TUAW Talkcast. We'll see you there!
Reminder on new-style talkcasting: With some help from the fine folks at Fuze, we're using the Fuze Meeting system to record the show. This should let everyone listen in live -- and, if you want, raise your hand as you would in the Talkshoe room to get unmuted and chime in.
You can join the call in progress (meeting # is 20099010) at 10 pm ET from any computer via this link; if you download the Mac or Windows Fuze clients ahead of time, you'll get better audio and a slicker experience, but browser-only will work fine. Just click the phone icon to join the audio once you're in.
Using an iPhone or iPad? Grab the native clients from the App Store and get busy. (Even Android users can join the party.) Still feel like using the conventional phone dial-in? Just call 201-479-4595 and enter the meeting number 20099010, then press #.
While the Fuze web and native clients have a chat channel, we'd like to reserve that for host participants, requests to talk and other real-time alerts... so the full-on chat for the show is already in this post, and we'll be popping in right at 10 pm tonight. You'll need Twitter, Facebook or Chatroll credentials to participate in the chat. We'll remind everyone to check back in at that time.
