Today FM Show Pages: Dempsey | D'arcy | Foley | Fenton | Last Word | McCloone |

the last nerd…

I was on The Last Word with Matt Cooper yesterday evening to talk about gadgets – specifically those gadgets you may no longer need now that your phone does so bloody much.

These Last Word things usually involve two talking heads chatting with Matt, and this time, the other guy was on over the phone with me in studio.

Before we started and off-air, Matt briefly introduced me to Colin, who works in the excellent Back From The Future tech store on Aungier Street in Dublin. Colin immediately told me that he’s been told we look alike. So much so that a FaceBook page was setup which asserts we were separated at birth. But, he said, a poll on the same page verified that he was, in fact, better looking than me. Okay, fair enough.
And then we started the piece, where I answered a question about the new smartphones being too smart for the survival of other products.

A mate of mine texted just after:

I was genuinely taken aback. I didn’t know what to say. I mean, why did he think I was there? It was a gadget piece. Surely it was a given that I was there to talk about gadgets and that I probably knew a thing or two about them, right?

    Are you sure this mate of yours was listening to YOUR show before? I've been regular listener for a while now and I did get an impression that you know your gadgets pretty well.
