TECHGEEK Weekly 43: Fanboys and Terrorists

TECHGEEK Weekly 43: Fanboys and Terrorists

Sony has blamed Anonymous for hacking their servers. They disagree. (Image: Wikimedia Commons/Creative Commons)

Sony’s hacking woes continue with blames to Anonymous, delays in restoring service, Linux returning and reports of a third hack being planned. As well, we discuss if the (accidental) live tweeting of the death of the most wanted terrorist is the “CNN Moment” for Twitter, and a new Wikileaks competitor from News Corp?

Stewart and Tom aren’t here to record, forcing Terence to return to the hosting chair again one week extra, with James (who’s there for the entire podcast) and Chris to help him with the show. While the sound may change, the show still continues on – especially with the winners of our little giveaway.

You’ll have to listen to find out those, however. Don’t forget to subscribe!
