TECHGEEK Weekly 27: CES is driving us GaGa

And we’re back officially. CES was in full swing, and we saw a lot of tablets, 4G phones and 3D from Sony. We also had crazy Harvey Norman trying to put GST on our purchases online, Facebook being valued at $50 billion and the Mac App Store launch – and hack.

And yes, it is the first hour long podcast – and the only one as it seems. But, hey, we had a lot to cover, especially with Sony’s 3D addiction.
