Leo Laporte Learns He is a Nobody

Leo Laporte, Diabetic

Leo looooves Wolfram Alpha. He told us so on the latest episode of iOS Today. While Megan Morrone poked at the iPad screen like a monkey, Leo droned on and on about how great Wolfram Alpha is.

We agree with him on that point. You can’t argue with the data. When Leo mentions searching names, Megan’s early-primate fingers type out “leo laporte” into Wolfram Alpha. What appears is magnificent.

Leo Laporte’s declining relevance, expressed in Wikipedia page hits over time.

Notice the dick pic bump in May 2015. That’s the last time people searched for him trying to figure out who “Leo Laporte” was when the story was picked up by Gawker, Perez Hilton, and TomoNews.

When we hear Leo realizing he’s a nobody, like Tonya proved at the Crunchies with her interviewing skills, he sounds really disappointed. Megan tries to console him with a statement of “People don’t use Wikipedia anymore.”

Really, Megan? Wolfram Alpha — which Leo Laporte loooooves — says Wikipedia is the 5th most popular site on the internet.

Thank you to the dark tipper who sent this in. We would have missed it. Submit your own tips to help us out.

  1. Anyone noticed Liza Kuntzell disappeared after the new studio, she knows it doesn’t help the buziness having her around, not a lovable personality. When is the next “inside Twit” show? Let me guess never

      Every now and then she shakes her ass in there and talks about spending money on something. Last time I saw her she was walki around the studio barefoot.

  3. Man you guys always get me with the Fuck You at the end. I have seriously LOLed several times because it catches me off guard.

    This one got me really good for some reason.

  4. Not only is the CNN of tech swirling in the bowl, even TD is having trouble getting any interest in it’s new articles.

    A damn shame.

    I am taking on all bets as to when Thurrott abandons/revise his paywall sight. I hate all paywalls and the idiots that deploy them.

      I spent a few weeks railing against the folks at Total Drama, but as they reminded me, this is all about listener contributions. I think what happened is after the dick pic, vagina pic and Dvorak banning the people who were supplying Total Drama with content stopped watching.

      Thurrott’s paywall drives me insane. He is putting some good content behind there that nobody will ever see. He’d be much better off doing a Patreon.

      1. I agree because I rarely watch the show any more. And if you look at the counter in the video screen it is showing under 900 viewers when it used to always show 3500 when the show was good and had Dvorak and others. It’s dying. It’s gotten really boring. And I just cannot stand listening to Leo’s FAKE laugh. It is so annoying.

        1. Well when they had Dvorak and Patrick Norton, they would talk shit to each other, now it is all kiss ass bloggers with the same boring view. I have to have that (insert new trendy tech BS) it is so beautiful and awesome, yes it’s amazing.

      1. I’ll add that at least I would be willing to pay a sum for Thurrot’s content.

        At this point, you’d have to pay ME to watch anything on the TWiT network in 2017.

  5. I just ate lunch then threw up, then I ate the throw up, threw up from that and re-ate it. It was so gross I threw up aagain. This is what Lecia does with jokes.

    At least do the good jokes. Megan is a monkey? Are you 6? Just dumb.

    2 Points
    (1) Averaging 50 Wikipedia hits a day is respectable
    (2) The drop from 250 a day (2013) is remarkable

    John Dvorak who doesn’t have a national radio show is higher at just under 100 a day. The podcast top charts are worse TWiT, but there is no historical data, although I remember.

  6. Look at the graph between 2008 and 2013. It seems that was when he had his Peak and now it’s been all downhill since except for that brief Dick Pic spike.

  7. If you really want to irritate him set up a PayPal.me account with the tag Leolaporte it is currently available but I’m sure that once he realizes he can slap his name on another thing he will want to set it up

      1. Thurrott Legend: DAMN. She is definitely talking about Leo.

        OMG! I hope my old boss sees this. He was definitely a narcissist, and would fire his competition instead of giving them the ability to grow in their career paths. He would publicly shame anyone who disagreed with him, and he’d talk about himself constantly.
        But they can change! I don’t think he ever will, but it would be nice. 🙂
