Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by Jon Hein is God, May 12, 2013.
As a conservative, I wish he would just go away and never be heard from again.
Gingrich clearly peaked in the early 90's and has entered "grizzly old man" territory.
I actually watched that entire video explanation of THE OBVIOUS courtesy of Newt.
It's a mobile computer, Newt. The rest of us already know that, but welcome to 2002. Would you care to produce a video talking about bottled water? It's a container of water which people carry around so they're not as thirsty.
hes taken up the task of renaming the smart phone? thats odd
I just think it's great that Newt is so in-touch with younger Americans. Videos like this prove his close ties with people under age 30. Or age 60, for that matter.
Someday they'll invent a machine with can tape record TV shows without a videotape. Until that time, however, I will be punching out the tabs on my "keeper" videotapes.
Its funny that the things he decides it can do are "take pictures" and ... "has an AP that tells you where McDonalds are". Fat Bastid
Why should Newtie give a shit what it's called?
I liked what he did as Speaker but Newt's too polarizing of a figure to ever be president so instead he's making it his mission to rename the smart phone? What a career move. He should work on naming Beth's new bulldog.
I wonder who has more viewers; Gingrich Network or Howard TV?
i tried to watch this but i decided to leave his video for a younger one
If he ever hears Howies rant about Sim cards he is really going to have his mind blown. They are the future after all.
So no one, NO ONE, in his organization could say to him, "Newt, don't do this. It's called a 'smartphone'. It's a pretty accepted term and you're gonna sound like a idiot."?
I would have voted for him over r-money,the sad fact was the republican primary seemed to be decided on who had the biggest pot of cash,bit of a sad state of affairs for a country with such a proud history ,that values it's freedoms so much,Iam not saying my country is any better but bit disappointing really .R-money, seemed to be tailor made for obama. I also would have actually paid to have seen newt debate obama . Newt would have gone for his throat, newt still would have lost but he would have wounded obama ,like he wounded R-money.R-money was half the man after the bear pit that was the republican primaries.
R-money got more and more nervy and came out with more and more clangers and newts girth expanded to the extent he resembled michellin man . And santorum just got nastier. Obama had it easy.
In the late 90s I was working for a website that sold cellphones. The term smartphone was even around then, even though at the time it was for internet connected phones that could run text based apps. Anyone remember WAP? I use to write WAP sites for those things.
I loved Billy West impersonating his mom calling Connie Chung a bitch.
Newt Gingrich has had a decades-long friendship with pioneering Sci-Fi author Jerry Pournelle. Despite being an ancient geezer, Pournelle appears with some frequency on This Week in Tech where he rambles on giving himself credit for "inventing" the smartphone as well as touting Newt Gingrich as a visionary.
I think they're both insufferable and bat-shit crazy.
That was great.
He's still alive?
