The little Wii gets a bit more intimate with a brand new game, Mortal Kombat banned in Australia and the MacBook Pro gets a little hardware revamp – and we make a big deal about it and the new Thunderbolt. Wait, what? That’s all this week on the TECHGEEK Weekly podcast with the return of James Wilson plus one guest – Matt Rossi.
Who? Matt Rossi, a friend of one of the hosts, was a podcaster. And now finds out the “organised disaster” of the podcast first hand. And Matt, we’re sorry.
And plagued with technical difficulties and obviously a sick Terence and Stewart (both are down with a cold), get ready for a mind-boggling edition of TECHGEEK Weekly.
