TECHGEEK Weekly 28: The War Against Buttons

By on

So it turns out, our “Powered by” gets crude when I do it. Anyway, we cover the Verizon iPhone 4, Vodafone’s massive security fail and MySpace being sold off? Oh, and find out how ChatRoulette (remember that) is making some dough from an unlikely source.

Stewart is sick for this episode – so officially ending his perfect attendance record. And Tom is doing the recording, and he expresses his outrage on his ISP – and if you see some bits of editing fail, you know who to turn.

We’ll see you next week on TECHGEEK Weekly. Don’t forget to subscribe!
