Google brings out a Facebook copycat, Julia Gillard’s emails have been compromised and the iPhone 5 isn’t coming out until October? We discuss these stories on this week’s TECHGEEK Weekly.
As well, we also hear about GoDaddy’s CEO Bob Parsons (right) is, well, an elephant killer – sparking outrage with PETA after a video he posted showed him killing the animal and the body greedily eaten up by villagers.
James Wilson and Stewart Wilson aren’t present in this week’s episode because they are apparently at a party, but we get Tom back and have Gabriel Huynh and Liam Frapell, another one of Chris’ friends, to join into the party. So don’t forget to listen and subscribe!
