TECHGEEK Weekly 35: So much for #winning

By , , , and on

We give our take on the Apple iPad 2 announcement, find out Microsoft’s response to the tablet and see if 3D is a big gimmick on the Nintendo 3DS. As well, IE6 hopefully goes into the grave and Street View now on bicycles? You’ll have to listen and find out.

A shorten edition today as Audition managed to crap out and lose the entire recording (luckily we only just started), and as well James Wilson decides to pop out.
