Leo Laporte Fails to Impress CNN Executive

CNN of Tech?

Leo Laporte invited his good friend Alex Wellen to appear on what has become of Triangulation.

The show’s format revolves around Leo Laporte doing zero preparation, usually ending up showing his porno or being embarrassed by guests, while the guest tries to figure out exactly what the fuck they got themselves into.

CNN of Tech Founder/Star Shaving On-Air, moments later

Because Leo has a Galaxy Note 7 sized hole in his soul that can only be filled by adoration of others, he runs through his normal “look how much I spent on my shoebox studio” spiel.

Leo backtracks a bit from “CNN of Tech” in the presence of an actual CNN executive, downgrading himself first to the C-SPAN of Tech, and later to the CNBC of Tech. Hopefully he can get Mr. Wonderful on the show next!

Alex Wellen was not impressed. Leo seems deflated, as you can see in the video above.

Megan Morrone is a Fraud #TWiTSwitch

You will be forgiven for not knowing what #TWiTSwitch is. Tech News Today co-hosts Megan Morrone — non-racist, non-monkey — and Jason Howell — kind of, sort of, whatever — came up with the grand plan.

Jason would wipe his Google Pixel phone and give it to Megan to use for a month, and Megan would leave all of her past-due library book notices on her iPhone and give it to Jason to use for a month. Each would report back with an opposite perspective they gained by using the other’s platform.

Hilton A. Goring could not be reached for comment.

Megan Morrone now claims to be an iOS “guru”; in reality, she just assumed Sarah Lane’s identity when the tech goddess departed the ailing network’s premises. Megan Morrone spent the prior decade pretending to work for Microsoft — actually freelance writing part of one terrible article for themwhile using Android.

Those other two sound like real jobs.
You ain't me, bish
You ain’t me, bish

Megan Morrone had never used an iPhone before assuming Sarah Lane’s identity. She wasn’t even good at pretending to be Sarah, killing iFive for the iPhone in the process with her terrible personality compared to the angelic Lane.

It was with great satisfaction that we finally heard someone at TWiT call her out on this fraud she perpetrates weekly, if not daily. Thank you, Bryan Burnett. Finally, you are something other than the foil for the fake priest.

Leo Laporte is an Emotional Wreck Over the Loss of His Dog

In the arms of an angel.

In the video above, you can see Leo Laporte do his best approximation of the human emotion “sadness” discussing Ozzy’s death.

Watch Megan Morrone’s face — did someone push her down a flight of stairs? — to see a real human reaction and then compare her face to Leo’s. Megan didn’t even own the dog!

Just before Windows Weekly, Leo blamed his regular tardiness on dearly departed Ozzy and joked that he can now get to work on time since he put his dog down.

Leo Laporte Exposes iPad Porno Again

Leo Laporte displays iPad porno again

How sad is it that this isn’t the first article we’ve written about Leo Laporte showing his porno on his iPad?

He did it again. He showed it to Megan on iOS Today, again. We have the footage, thanks to an eagle-eyed viewer who submitted a tip. Thank you!

We reached out to Leo Laporte via email — the one he says he never reads but totally did — for comment on this article before it went to press.

We asked:

Leo, can you identify the Phoenix Marie clip on your iPad? Most of her work seems to be kinky shit like fucking dudes up the ass with a strap-on, and you’re not into that, right? Right?

When we checked 2 ½ hours later, Leo had made the YouTube video private and had replaced the videos in the RSS feeds. The newly censored YouTube video is 1:13:39. The old oneyep, you bet we archived it — was 1:13:53.

The full screen, for context, that was edited out of the re-posted video.

What happened to those missing 14 seconds?

Leo Laporte had to ask an editor, yet again, to edit out some of his porno he showed on-air and then uploaded to the feed.

Our only guess is that he assumes nobody actually watches these shows, since he knew he did it as he actively tried to hide it on-air.

What’s truly sad about this situation is that he had them offline in Movies on the iPad. This means he actually downloaded those MP4 files, probably via torrents based on the terrible file names. He then hooked up his iPad to his Mac and dragged and dropped the files onto the iPad using the sync function. All so he could have his porno files offline on the device itself. What is he doing in between shows??

So far, we know Leo likes:

Is TWiT still advertised as family-friendly?

At the time of this writing, we still have not gotten a response from Mr. Laporte — other than his censorship actions. We will update the post if we learn more. It’s no wonder he was late for his first show the morning we emailed him.

Yes, I left, but this was worth returning for. Expect me to come back for dick pics, vagina pics, and porno.

Leo Laporte Admits He Rode John C. Dvorak’s Coattails

This will be my final article and video. Others do still have access to post, even though they haven’t been, so I can’t say this is the site’s last post.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Thanks to a reader tip, we have the footage above from 2001.

Leo Laporte admitted then what we all still see is true today.

He is a washed-up DJ masquerading as a tech expert.

Additionally, he rode John C. Dvorak’s coattails into the position he finds himself in today, subsequently tossing John under the bus.

Mere Mention of Leo Laporte on a Podcast Evokes a Dick Joke

Penis seen round the world. Pixelated for your protection.
Penis seen round the world. Pixelated for your protection.

We joked a lot about Leo Laporte displaying his dick for all to see on The Tech Guy. These days, it’s mostly old news, especially since he’s moved on to displaying vaginas and sexually harassing his female co-host.

But, that doesn’t mean the event doesn’t live on in the collective consciousness of the internet. Indeed, when playing a Leo Laporte clip complimenting the Jupiter Broadcasting Network’s Linux Action Show, Leo says “I love those guys.”

Their immediate response: childish giggling and a compliment about his penis. The clip is above, but it’s available on the YouTube copy of Coder Radio #225.

It’s time to let it go, guys. Leo is more than a stubby phallus. He is a living, breathing dumpster fire of a man with many more flaws than his inability to separate work and personal life.

Megan Morrone Perturbs Pepcom Participants

Dear God. Why?
Dear God. Why?

TWiT has exactly two hosts on staff now: Megan and Jason. After the abortion of a presentation that Tonya delivered — where is she? — only Megan and Jason are available.

With the extremely obese fake priest trotting around Rome, Megan was sent to cover Pepcom. No, we don’t know what that is either. Perhaps an ulcer medicine.

During her idiotic “coverage” — most of which went unused in the actual “Live Special” — Megan took time out to admit that she actually is a monkey, despite her prior denials. She additionally confided in the live audience, telling them she feels dumb, but that wasn’t really a secret. Perhaps she’s not a 100% Dunning-Kruger case after all?

Enjoy the sweet sounds of Enya while watching Megan Morrone meditate.

Is Jon Kalish Infatuated With Father Robert Ballecer?

Jon Kalish: Author, not the GNU foot eating guy

Father Robert Ballecer does a great job on the TWiT TV Network making LEDs blink, making LEDs blink, making LEDs blink, and also making LEDs blink. Editor’s note: Jimmy Jam pointed out that FMCP also talks about drones incessantly and does native ads for Acer.

But, what some may not know is his storied history at the TWiT TV Network. Never fear; the creepy Jon Kalish, who may or may not be gay for Father Robert Ballecer — not that there’s anything wrong with that — is on the case. The very same Kalish who has a long history of slobbing TWiT’s knob (example 2010, example 2014, example 2016).

Father Robert Ballecer
Fr. Robert Ballecer

In his latest long, sloppy blowjob of an article (archive link), he chronicles the rise of the morbidly obese fake priest from a dumpster diving — that happened — computer builder to a TWiT TV Network personality that makes LEDs blink.

The article also makes the claim that Tom Merritt is to blame for the existence of FMCP on the TWiT TV Network.

And, last but not least, in the article’s introductory section, Jon Kalish quotes an accurate YouTube commenter stating:

“A priest is doing ads? This is the end times.”

Indeed.

Leo Laporte Insults John C. Dvorak’s Writing on Windows Weekly

The wiser, more distinguished gentleman.
The wiser, more distinguished gentleman.

Leo Laporte can’t seem to keep his trap shut about John C. Dvorak.

The wise Dvorak hasn’t been back to TWiT since the banning, and he hasn’t been happy about all the insults (example, example, example, example). Always a man of class, Dvorak never responds in kind.

That doesn’t stop Leo Laporte from mentioning Dvorak at least once a week, however, almost always in a negative light.

In the video above, Leo makes fun of John again, doing his rude impression, and then makes fun of John’s headlines at PCMagazine. Paul Thurrott jokes that all of Dvorak’s current articles are rehashed content from the 1980’s with new product names inserted, and the portly Laporte agrees.

Just get over him, Leo!

Leo Laporte Discusses Dumping More TWiT Shows

Chins for days.
Chins for days.

Leo Laporte lives a pretty tough life. In between $22,000 cruises complaining about rancid food and getting butlers to serve CeHO for the next cruise, he has to occasionally show up to the Shoebox Studios to interrupt his guests/cohosts and say incorrect things on camera.

It takes a lot out of the poor guy, so he’s looking to drop more shows, reducing his “work” week to 4 days. He tried to rope Megan into hosting more shows, as you can see in the video above, and then ponders dropping Windows Weekly.

Look out Paul Thurrott and Mary Jo Foley! Your shared hairdresser has to get paid somehow.
