For $1.99 (or maybe cheaper?) you can enjoy the wonderful flavors of Wild Boar, Alligator, Kangaroo, Venison, Buffalo, Ostrich, and Duck all in a spicy “meat” stick. I can understand Venison and Buffalo… but I can’t really figure out why anyone would want to enjoy a meaty Kangaroo stick. No […]

Do People Actually Eat This Stuff?




Following today’s Apple Keynote, their music social network (called Ping) experiment silently received a death notice. However, most people didn’t even know about the social network in the first place. Before we get into why this never worked, let’s detail exactly how we knew it came to an end. Apple […]

The Death of iTunes Ping: Apple’s Failed Social Network


How many times have you seen on the right hand side of the page “Jane Doe (your friend – in this example) likes Pepsi” – or Verizon Wireless?  The company or product doesn’t really matter, because if you haven’t changed your privacy settings, it’s targeting your friends with your identity […]

Did You Know Facebook Is Using You?



iTunes has become the go-to place for Podcasts, and is the primary source for most people’s subscriptions. However, syncing them with your iOS devices has been, if nothing else, trivial and a little wonky. This would leave people with podcast fatigue. In other words, people would stop listening to a […]

Apple Podcast App


This isn’t exactly a new service, by any means, but I don’t think it’s gained nearly as much traction as needed. Google Music (now known as Google Play Music) is a free service provided by our friends at Google that allows you to upload 20,000 songs to the cloud — […]

Maybe you didn’t know…Google Music



Paul Reubens (better known as PeeWee Herman) stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to give a little bit of a twist on “The Dark Knight Rises” trailer. In other words, it’s the trailer we all know and love — only with PeeWee Herman’s voice. What’s not to love about that? […]

PeeWee Herman… is Batman?


If you saw my last post, then this will make total sense. If you didn’t, then here it goes: This is based off of a video by Skifcha.  It’s not quite as long as the 5 hours of Hipster Cat we saw last time, but it’s just a good. Once again, […]

Dubstep Grandma



There has been a trend for awhile to take videos that are hilarious or maybe even annoying — and replay them for hours at a time. This is one of those, only it’s a whopping 5 hours.  If you can last that long, you are more man than I. My […]

Dubstep Hipster Cat: How long can you last?


Now, I’m sure most of you are thinking: “Well, I DON’T trust anything on the internet!” And good for you, because most people don’t. However, there are a few people out there that rely on the internet for reviews of either restaurants, apartments, or any other product. It isn’t abnormal […]

Why Do We Trust Anything On The Internet?



You have to love Demo Fails. Every company has them, and they only get funnier each time. Many of you know already that on Monday, June 18th 2012,  Microsoft announced that they were entering the tablet hardware department with Microsoft Surface.  But that’s not really what I’m here to talk about. […]

Oh, Microsoft: Some Things Never Change


The internet is a very social place, we all know this much to be true. What we don’t know, even though we think sometimes we do, is how powerful social networking can really be. You would think, someone like me, who tweets as much as I do, would have put […]

Getting Back To Social



You might have noticed my last post, where I talked about “Twitter Hating Me”.   I didn’t mean that they actually had a grudge against me, but that post received a lot of feedback — most of it positive — and left people wanting to know what ever happened with […]

Maybe Twitter Doesn’t Hate Me After All


I originally posted this on Google Plus. However, I feel my blog readers should have some insight as well. I’ve been suspended on Twitter. This has never happened before.. Honestly, I find it kind of funny. Twitter thought my account was “Spamming” because I was posting so much about Apple […]

Twitter Hates Me



With the announcement of Microsoft Photosynth finally coming to Windows Phone, it bears some notice that I should have covered this earlier. My deepest apologies. I’m covering it now. Now,  what exactly is Microsoft Photosynth you are asking? Well, the folks at Richmond cooked up this little application that allows […]

Apple's New iPad
Apple announced the new iPad on March 7th. They aren’t calling it the iPad 3, and they aren’t calling it iPad HD. It’s just the new iPad. That’s it.  Honestly, it’s a smart move. At least this way they aren’t starting to sound like a Rocky sequel. I’ve watched the […]

The New iPad: What Did I Get Right?




Apple's Invitation to the March 7th Event
The big talk of the day is Apple’s Keynote set to happen early this morning in San Francisco. Will they announce the next version of the iPad? Another iPhone? Nobody knows, and Apple likes it that way. With all the click bait articles out there, you would think Apple was […]

New Site 2012



If you follow my audioboo posts, then you would have known that I’ve been itching for a new design.  I’ve kept my tradition going of a re design each new year, and here we are. After doing vast research, I’ve noticed that the days of bloated/fat sites are out. We […]

@mattdfowler I just spent the last 30 minutes reorganizing and updating links. Why? Because I finally made the (hugely suggested) jump and changed my twitter handle.  Since I first joined twitter I’ve been using the ID m477h3w.  Which stands for “Matthew” in l33t speak.  I don’t feel like explaining what […]

Haven’t recorded a video with SocialCam in awhile. I figured it was about time I let them know I am still alive and kicking. Just a test video here, nothing special. I’m sure my followers/viewers get tired of my test videos, but it’s all about Trial & Error baby!

In case you missed Microsoft’s LAST Keynote at CES yesterday, here is the video that started the evening. It, honestly, is the most exciting thing that happened at the Keynote. Ryan Seacrest and Steve Ballmer were dangerously awkward the entire time, and don’t even get me started on the “Tweet […]

When videos go viral, it’s always a good thing. I’m not arguing that. What I am arguing is how some of them gain the popularity they do. You may think I’m putting this as a complaint to the following videos. But, I’m not. I am actually very glad they received […]

Am I the only one who has noticed that Google loves to give power features to those users who are popular or famous? Before you go all crazy on me, let me explain… YouTube: This is the first one I feel disgruntled about.  Ever heard of the term Partner? Of course you have, and […]

I promised to keep you up to speed with Tim And Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, so here is another update. If you were appalled by the Red Band trailer then please check out the iTunes Trailer that is rated R, but it’s more appropriate than the last one. (No F-Bombs) Check […]

First and foremost, I have been trying to find a Chromebook to test for ages. Yes, I realize that if I really want to test out the new “Chrome OS” all I have to do is use Google Chrome. Well, I’m using that now. Check. But I wanted to see this […]

This review will start out simply saying Good Grief, Good Grief, GOOOODDD FREEEAAAAKKIINNGG GGRIEF. That’s putting it nicely. This album is so damn terrible, I can’t even laugh at how terrible it is. Apparently, I’m not alone either. If I was a betting man, I’d bet that 9 out of […]

The University of China, IL truly is the worst school in America. Babycakes (Why does my spell checker think that word is correctly spelled?)  surely says it best. I remember watching Babycake’s Journal Rants on YouTube, but that isn’t exactly the first way I discovered him. Remember SuperDeluxe? Not many […]

Review of China, IL “The Worst School in America”


Since 1999, most of us have laughed & giggled (isn’t that the same thing–No!) at Seth MacFarlane’s wonderful work, Family Guy. But, over the years, as the seasons continue — their humor changes dramatically.  A Gay joke here, an anti-war pun there, and Brian being completely oblivious that he’s a dog. […]

I promised updates, so here is the first official Full Length trailer for Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, provided by IGN. Definitely watch this in HD. Fair Warning: Trailer is NSFW! For a reason unknown to me, they are calling it the “Red Band Trailer”. If you have any insight […]

Earlier today, Eric Wareheim [be careful with that link]  (the glasses wearer of the duo Tim & Eric) posted on his twitter account the official Movie poster for Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie.  I have to say I am quite excited. To top it all off, an official trailer was also […]

Magic happens at DeviantArt, there is no doubting that.   There is also no escaping the fact that Angry Birds is huge. REALLY huge.

This is a tribute to one the most iconic members of the tech industry. No, I never met Steve Jobs in person but his impact on me would have you believing otherwise. He was a wise man and the power behind Apple. His legend will live on as a legendary […]

Speaking it is hard enough for me, let alone writing it! But i’m taking plenty of notes! Wish me luck! Also, I’d like to listen to some Russian bands,  any suggestions?

He’s a lot of things, such as Captain Kirk, Rocket Man, and an 80 year old, but I’m not too sure about him being Iron Man. I suppose I will check out his new album “Seeking Major Tom“, which is available in CD and Vinyl format on October 11th. 

Is William Shatner Iron Man?




However, the Desktop isn’t completely gone.  I feel it’s being very slowly fizzled out, but it still exists! Doesn’t this look familiar? Of course! It’s the same UI as Windows 7, with the exception of a different looking Windows logo on the bottom left.  That button takes you to the […]

Windows 8 Developer Preview: “The Desktop”


Start Menu is in quotations because it’s received a complete redesign.  It appears to have been completely replaced with the new “tiles” (aka Metro UI). Which fairs a striking resemblance to Windows Phone 7, hmm, wonder why?   Windows Phone 7 was highly based of the Zune interface, and now is […]

Windows 8 Developer Preview: The “Start Menu”



You’ll go through this wave of settings (if you opt to do custom settings rather than the express settings) You’ll notice that the “Use Windows Error Reporting” is turned off by default. Maybe Microsoft is finally starting to come out and say “We never check those, so why send them?” Looks like […]

On May 22nd of this year (2011), Brandon Hardesty released a short film on Atom that must have bypassed my internet eyes because it is absolutely hilarious!  Directed by Dave Green, who I’ve never heard of, but must be a pretty funny guy because this film is hilarious. It stars […]

Why didn’t anybody tell me they released one of my favorite “Crap Cleaner’s” (CCleaner) for the Mac?  Granted, it’s still in the early BETA stages, it still seems to work like a charm!  I have been waiting for this release for awhile, so I am really glad to see it finally […]

  OK. Time for some nit-picking, but don’t worry — there will be a few positive remarks thrown in there. I have already complained enough (and so have many other Google Plus users) about the problem with the stream being, how do you say it, unreliable?  No, I’m not saying […]

While still in the very early stages of the Matt Fowler Network, I’m trying to decide which live streaming option to use.  There really are so many, it’s hard to choose. Right now, I’ve been playing around with Justin.tv, and I am happy with the results, but I am always […]

Steve Jobs wants Sean Connery to take part in some sort of advertisement, and Sean Connery isn’t having it. He doesn’t sell his soul to Apple. After all, he is James Bond. He’s Scottish. And he won’t have any of that, Mr. Jobs   (by the way, I realize that […]

For awhile, I kept all of my old posts (prior to 2007) on a Typepad blog. Why? Mainly because at one point in time they were on a blogger account. Then I exported them, and moved to Vox. Well, SixApart bought them out and I was forced to shove them […]
