Valentine’s Day is coming, so Dave and Nikole talk about the sexy merger of Google and artificial intelligence company DeepMind. They also discuss the Kickstarter campaign for Flag, a service that would let you get free prints from your iPhone photos. There’s still about a week to go, so go here to back it yourself.
Friend of the show and CNET Cheapskate Rick Broida joins us for his monthly visit, this time making recommendations for techy gifts for your sweetheart. One of his suggestions is quite contentious.
This week’s main event: We talk to Mike Bender, best known for his fabulous gift to the Internet, Awkward Family Photos. This blogatory celebration of embarrassing photos from your childhood is one of the best spots on the Internet, and Mike talks about how the site got started, why it’s popular, and how to avoid making your own awkward photos.
He also takes this week’s Geek Trivia Quiz for listener Shelby Purvis, from Dorchester MA. Shelby stands to win a set of ThinkGeek Geeky Scented Candles.
