New Zealand is about to get a three-strikes law that remains very controversial, in how it got passed and what’s in the law. The TECHGEEK Weekly Podcast discuss the impact it has, while also discussing about Android’s latest security flaw and the BlackBerry Playbook.

Meanwhile, it looks like one post on our site is about to be a cause in an all-out staff rivalry – I’ll give you a hint, it is about zombies and chocolate. Also, we’re trialling a new format for our podcast, so please send your feedback in the comments.

Stewart and James are not here, so Terence, Chris and Tom are left to hold the fort. With an hour to fill, we managed to go overboard. Don’t forget to listen and subscribe.
