TECHGEEK Weekly 31: Where’s my IPv4?

By on

The internet has run out of IPv4 addresses and also Intel has a bad batch of Sandy Bridge chips that needs replacing. But it’s not all bad news – Murdoch is spreading his empire on the iPad, while Google’s Honeycomb is looking delicious with its sexy user interface. That’s this week on the TECHGEEK Weekly podcast.

James Wilson joins the podcast again (for the last few minutes of the episode) with Terence Huynh, Stewart Wilson, Chris Southcott and Tom Solari in discussing the week that was in tech.
