NSFW.... GREAT!

fascinatej says:

awesome so much more fun then the podcasts!!! Sorry podcasts :(

Parker Clack says:

Fun and funny. LOVE the express use of f-bombs throughout. I agree with you both on wearing your accessories the right way. How about a conversation on the use of blue tooth headsets.

Keep 'em coming and we will be watching.

droidbeat says:

Loved this! Wanna see more! But, Georgia, the most competitive tablets cost the same as an iPad. People choose them based on desirability, not price.

kenyee says:

lol...I expected Ashley to dress up as Tricia Helfer for part of that when they said NSFW :-)

dalvik says:

LOL I see people here are more down-to-earth folk, There are some over sensitive guys on tipb.com not exactly happy with the way Ashley expresses herself lol :)

what a waste of time....

what a waste of time....

Hand_O_Death says:

Wow, TiPb is an interesting read. They called Ash "Not Hip" *Gasp* and "Unprofessional" for swearing *EEE Gads*

Well done sticking up for yourself over there Ash (hehehe Shovel).

NSFW is Not Safe for Some even at home apparently.

Either way it was fun and I look forward to many more following each AC podcast if you ladies can find the time to continue it.

MobiJew says:

the link for techfollery is wrong...i think...
isnt it techfoolery.tv? not .com?

Yes! It's techfoolery.tv!!

I thought the show was awesome, I hope they keep doing it, maybe adding some more ladies into the mix

We've definitely got plans for some other ladies to join us!

dw astor says:

Verizon makes the robot commercials, including the creation of the Droid branding, not Moto.

TuxDotKing says:

Eh, didn't really appeal to me at all, but I guess I'm not the target audience. *shrug*

grundyman says:

who was the target audience ??? I doubt theirs many women that visit this site.

I don't know what everyone else was talking about . but this had to be one of the worst podcast i've seen yet . please don't let their be another one .

belniente says:

Just because women don't go around announcing their genders in order to lurk or contribute doesn't mean we're not here.

I actually agree that it was not as good as I had expected, but I have great hopes that it will improve with more content - love these ladies, and looking forward to more.

I agree. IMO, it sounded like a bunch of wannabe high school teenagers talking.

Quite frankly, I don't care for their opinions on anything. It sounded really immature.

Don't hate. Just putting my opinion out there and I know most will disagree.

wezra says:

Great job ladies... keep up the good work! Enough said...

bradclaw says:

Great comments but kinda disappointing that they have to use the language they do..

Pimp Lucious says:

I found it refreshing. Ashley being herself. Of course I know what to expect from Ashley since I've been following her for awhile now. Wouldn't have it any other way.

bkorver says:

Agreed. I would have been kind of upset if she hadn't shown a little personality. As it stands I thought she was great!

It's like "Ohh this is the Internet. Let's see how many times I can use the F-bomb".

DarknesSx says:

Damn i'm hungry :/
I wish can have a sandwich right now xD
=================
Nah, i'm just kidding...

but Ashley, YOU SHOULD STOP SWEARING ON PODCAST FFS (For Flowers Sake :P)

theDL says:

Don't worry, we're not gonna talk about girl stuff, we're gonna talk about awesome stuff!
...
Dating tips! Fashion advice! Celebrity gossip!
Hahahaha I love it

dchawk81 says:

Yeah that struck me too, except I didn't love it.

Barton82 says:

It's cut like hell, the original was longer and (for me) better, had the podcast feel to it. It's OK to add a pic or two when topic calls for it, but the constant cuts and full screen titles are too much. Overprocessed.

ggeorg says:

Ashley is fucking awesome, also, it's nsfw because Ashley is awesome and is cursing.

Also, Georgia, no one cares, let Ashley have her own show.

I just totally watched the whole segment. We've got podcasts for boys and now girls. Good to hear both sides of the spectrum. Great knowledge!

dchawk81 says:

And I thought Molly Wood was starting to get annoying...

I'm not against girls having their own thing but this podcast is badly cut, has no segues, and sounds like salon chat (as a wedding photographer, I've heard plenty).

I'm definitely not listening again.

.46caliber says:

Fail. At the beginning they promised no cramp/lipstick talk, but they ended up spending 10 minutes on dating etiquette and who should pay. BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH

If I want dating advice from Android Central, I'd rather ask Uncle Jerry.

plunder says:

Calling him "Uncle Jerry" reminds me of the Waltons LOL

sandplasma says:

I watched til the last second and not once did they flash the camera. -2 pts. Haha, not bad gals, keep it up.

rap1 says:

I really liked the podcast but not sure if I'll watch again with the swearing. I hadn't heard Ashley's stuff before so I wasn't prepared. She seems like she has a great personality and doesn't need it. This isn't the language I want the others in my household listening to either. Of course I'm probably way off typical AC reader demographic. I'll probably try it one more time and then skip it if the language is still so bad.

plunder says:

I follow the Android Central and Mobile Nations PodCasts; they are to the point and great listening. I also follow TiPb and like Ashley's weekly briefings on Mobile Nations; but somehow I did not feel the same about this material.

That has nothing to do with Ashley's language. Her frankness here is welcome and it's great that she uses both Android and iOS devices. Staying open minded when reporting technology is vital; I wish more technology fans would stay that way. Both these people know their technology, I want to hear their views on that.

mdoyal1 says:

Lolz on who has to pay for on the first date. The rule to who pays for the first date is whoever asks the person on a date pays.

fascinatej says:

I'm of the female variety and I come here every day, several times a day, I guess I'm the target group cause I loved it!

GeorgiaTiPb says:

Thanks everyone for all the support on the podcast.

Was a blast to do and we will be just adding more for everyone. Loved working with Ash and I'm excited for the next part.

Thanks for watching much <3

MrMercedes says:

Guys, If you don't like it, don't watch it. Its that simple....no need for the negative and rude comments. I myself wont watch because its not my style.

Got about 5 minutes in...gadget talk usually denotes specs ;)

o4liberty says:

No reason for the foul language need to clean it up a bit!

h0ruza#AC says:

Amazing, Bravo Bravo. Add some Sassi Bob goodness and we are Girls Gone Gadget heaven.

h0ruza#AC says:

And the foul language shouldn't be taken seriously. It won't mar your soul.

I like it and made me feel like I was hanging out with people who are passionate about what they love. In fact it made me smile and tingle a little now what in the world could be wrong with a smile inducing tingle?
