More on G4 / TechTV
Well, there’s only two shows left on G4/TechTV from the old TechTV days. Screen Savers and Xplay. Everything has has been cancelled, and everyone else fired/let go save for a few random folks, plus Adam & Morgan. And Screen Savers is a sham, it’s got nowhere near the intelligence and knowledge that it used to have *COUGH*Leo*COUGH*, it’s a bunch of “who cares” folks there now (plus I’ve been reading where they fake phone calls, too!).
I just found out tonight that Unscrewed was cancelled when I was looking at a blog for Laura Swisher, the now unemployed former staffer there. I wonder how long till they dump Xplay, too.
I kind of figured the merger with G4 wasn’t a true merger with TechTV, it was a gobble, much in the way that Microsoft gobbles up other companies – ironic given that TechTV was originally founded by a Microsoft guy.
Sigh. I wish all these guys would get together and do something somewhere else. I miss my Leo fix. Hell, I miss Wil Wheaton!
