TECHGEEK Podcast #22: It's a series of tubes

It’s the second to last show of the year! And we go off with some Wikileaks news, because that has happen to dominate the news, with all the hacking and arrests. Wow. As well, we discuss the new Facebook profile design changes, and the new Chrome OS laptop.

We also find that Tom has had his internet capped, George Lucas is creepy, Steve Jobs has something he wants to say in an email and that Internet Explorer is safer than Firefox – how? Also, what the hell?

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!
