TECHGEEK Podcast 20: The Big 2-0

By on

Yep. 20 episodes. We have actually made it this far, surprisingly, without being pulled from the internet because of our irrelevant and often nonsensical information regurgitation.

Anyway, two million finds “She Loves You”, and we talk about Telstra finally being split up into two. Also, Farmville is no longer the King of Facebook applications and we get into a heated discussion of whether an iPad 2 will be out (I don’t think we will see it, personally)

Also, we’re going to have a live podcast for our Holiday Gift Guide 2010 season. So stay tuned for more information from Stewart.
