TECHGEEK Podcast 21: We dropped the cable

TECHGEEK Podcast 21: We dropped the cable

Okay, we get it. We fail at comedy. Don’t get your knickers in a twist. We discuss the Wikileaks saga, the fact that Porn aims to be the next Google in stealing your private data and that Apple tries to push a dead social network with a dead celebrity.

Yep, and while I’m so going to get angry emails from Michael Jackson fans, Tom is going to get emails from feminists calling him a sexist. Ouch.

Anyway, if you want to get our email addresses, you can get them after the jump. See you next week. Oh, and don’t forget we have a live show on December 18!
