New dial-in experience! Set up Fuze Meeting before the show if you want to join in live.
You know what Sunday night means -- time for the TUAW talkcast! Tonight, as the controversial (and five-ring challenged) Sochi Winter Olympics are kicking into gear, we'll review the news of the week, including a did-they/didn't-they opening ceremony Apple device disguise order. (Spoiler alert, they didn't.) We'll also talk about popular game Flappy Bird's exit from the App Store, and take your calls and questions!
Reminder on new-style talkcasting: With some help from the fine folks at Fuze, we're using a new system to record the show. This should let everyone listen in live -- and, if you want, raise your hand as you would in the Talkshoe room to get unmuted and chime in.
You can join the call in progress (meeting # is 20099010) at 10 pm ET from any computer via this link; if you download the Mac or Windows Fuze clients ahead of time, you'll get better audio and a slicker experience, but browser-only will work fine. Just click the phone icon to join the audio once you're in.
Using an iPhone or iPad? Grab the native clients from the App Store and get busy. (Even Android users can join the party.) Still feel like using the conventional phone dial-in? Just call 775-996-3562 and enter the meeting number 20099010, then press #.
While the Fuze web and native clients have a chat channel, we'd like to reserve that for host participants, requests to talk and other real-time alerts... so the full-on chat for the show will appear in a second Talkcast post at 10 pm tonight. You'll need Twitter, Facebook or Chatroll credentials to participate in the chat. We'll remind everyone to check back in at that time.
