Igloo Software: If you’ve ever worked in a corporate environment, you know how painful intranets can be. Often times they are poorly designed repositories of stale information, and people wind up avoiding them by just emailing file attachments back and forth.
Igloo is an intranet you’ll actually like. It’s built with easy-to-use apps, like file sharing, blogs, calendars and task management, and it works on any device – from your laptop to your tablet to your phone. Best of all, you don’t need to hire a team of developers for just one small change. The drag-and-drop interface and WYSIWYG editor make it as easy to update as the consumer apps you use at home.
Check out igloosoftware.com/pragmatic to get started. It’s free to use with up to 10 people.

The Surface Pro 3 claims to be the best of both a laptop and tablet experience but in trying to compromise for both, new issues about its optimisation for either use case become evident. Myke Hurley joins John to dissect the Tablet Laptop category.
Jason Snell is the editorial director at IDG. He also does the Incomparable. They do these drafts on the show. I ripped the idea off for one of my Slovene shows. Jason said that he doesnt’t mind and I have it on tape. The Incomparable is really awesome and so is Jason.

Time.Casey Liss writes software and is one-third of Accidental Tech Podcast (ATP if you’re nasty).SHOW NOTESPart 1, "The Summer of ‘99"Funcoland commercial "Back in Five Minutes" was the bane of many’s existence because a) it encouraged dropping kids off, b) minors could not sell back items, c) no one got a check or cash equivalent for trade-ins, and d) no kids were ever allowed to have that much fun in the store. Where did they think they were, FuncoLand???Pokémon cards are the devil, and Redemption (which is still around!) fought the devil and all the "Satanic" other CCGs of the 90’s.Not only is Redemption still around, but they have "Women Booster packs" and a 2008 expansion set called Rock of Ages.Casey inaugurates "Shrinkwrapping, shelving, helping customers on the floor, or ringing in customers?" as the new "F/M/K"Keymaster/GatekeeperConsumerist is a great site filled with loads of customer service horror stories alongside some of the best-ever reporting on consumer advocacy issues.Quick change scams are mean, awful things to do.Superman 64 is still 100% awful.Intelligent Qube is a great, tragically forgotten puzzle game for the PlayStation worth saving life good scotch. Chu Chu Rocket too.Syphon Filter really wanted to be Metal Gear Solid.People often forget the N64 had a bunch of really great games like Wave Race 64 and Banjo Kazooie.Resident Evil 2 and Code: Veronica were an obsession for many. Both games would be sold back and re-bought in Moisés’ store repeatedly.Earthbound, part of the Mother series in Japan, still has an enormous cult following (including creator Shigesato Itoi) that drove its being made available on the Wii U eShop and the digital release of the classic Nintendo Strategy Guide.A combo GameCube/PS1/PS2/XBox controller to USB adapter.

Episode 27: Military Software
Both Casey Liss and John have done some development and engineering in a military environment that comes with its own set of unique restrictions and pressures. We explore the good, the bad and the downright annoying aspects but don’t worry, it’s not all bad.
