UPDATE - the problem isn't blackout restrictions, rather the MLB At Bat app isn't working with Chromecast. I can get the game video to stream on the tablet as well as the desktop. I'm now casting the tab with the video from my browser, so watching the game and all is well. Hopefully they fix the chromecast function soon.

Annual post about how much I hate +FOX Sports and the +MLB and their dumb blackout rules. As a PAYING customer of +MLB TV there should be NO reason why I can't watch the +New York Mets / Yankees game on the app and Chromecast right now.  

It's 2015 - this is ridiculous that this is still a problem

Mets kick Yankee Ass!  Harvey almost goes 9 (not sure I agree with Terry's decision to keep him in there).  Go for the series win in today's rubber game.  LETS GO METS!

Oh and Twitters is really a big enough company you'd think they can release on all the major platforms at once. I wonder it's that fact that it's easier to do staged roll-outs on Android (I've heard) so test it there first?

Interest is definitely piqued by Google's Project Fi - despite it being Hangouts based (Grr) - but will keep an eye on it - not enough to get me to move to the Nexus 6 though

The pricing looks great to me, then again I'm not a huge youtube watcher and such, but everything else is great for me

You need to find a way to become a semi-regular guest on the show. Great insight and commentary, not always seen on the program.

Can't believe I didn't post this earlier...a few weeks back I was joined by my best friends and iFanboy co-founders to moderate A Spotlight on Darwyn Cooke at WonderCon - we recorded it for you to watch and enjoy - get some indepth talk with one of comics most talented people (Darwyn, not us)

Wow you're going to be the editor of the next Darwyn Cooke title, congratulations.

It seems crazy how different mediums work, I have books on my shelf with your name printed on it then there are all the podcasts you've done.  It's weird to think how you're known to such disparate audiences.

Finally got the time to watch the first two parts of the JUDGE documentary from Noisey - great start and worth the watch for any aging hardcore kids
Formed as a reaction to the "nice guy" approach by his former hardcore band Youth of Today, Mike Ferraro created JUDGE to have a darker approach and follow the Oi street punk movement.

I know I'm a bit biased since I'm part of the larger TWiT family, but it's pretty awesome to see The Screen Savers coming back.  

Haven't talked to many people about this, partially because it's boring and partially because it's not very different than thousands of others, but the original Screen Savers and the other great content on TechTV was one of the earliest gateways for me to tech content and paved the way for podcasts and the like. 

Psyched to see it coming back! I'll be watching!

Did they not check before promoting the show, or did they know they weren't going to be able to use the name in the long run but used it to grab attention for the launch?   The former's a pretty big faux pas, but the latter is smart if there's little legal cost involved.
