Episode 98: Looking Back on 2015


NOTE:Stephen Kelley needs your help since his Mom's home was devastated from the winter weather in January. Click here for more info.


Ian Murdock unfortunately passed away at the end of 2015. Thomas also realized that the GSM-based 4G LTE mobile hotspot from Straight Talk was a bad investment; the device works fine, but the problem of loading sites is out of Straight Talk's hands (site may not load under recent versions of Chrome due to recent security updates). Shaggy's System76 adventure was one of his favorite moments.

Even cheaper computers have arrived in the form of the Pi Zero and CHIP. GPU technology has also been improving with the AMD Fury X and NVIDIA Maxwell Second Gen.

Overlooked Pop Culture

Liquid water on Mars, Shaggy's top five games, and Thomas's move back to Warrensburg were also among the highlights for 2015. ABC also has a good rundown as well.
