TECHGEEK Podcast #6: We don’t need sex to create a scandal

By on

Turns out, to create a scandal, we don’t need to have a sexual relationship. However, we get a little bit sidetrack with the NBN to talk about that story. Yes, the NBN. We ranted about the NBN – that’s a first. We also talk about a new FaceTime video sex service and is Android getting a new gaming platform for Android?

Anyway, we also introduce to the podcast the lead editor of our Gadgets section, Tom Solari, as part of our podcast. And yes, we promise that this is will be in a better quality than last week’s episode.
