TECHGEEK Weekly 70: Deadly Exploding Printers

By on

What is inside your phone, why a darknet mesh network will not work and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is free from its ban – maybe. That’s what we explore in this week’s (slightly delayed) edition of TECHGEEK Weekly.

Host Terence Huynh and Stewart Wilson are joined by Chris Southcott and Tom Solari in discussing the week in news – mixed in with a bit of some internal goings inside techgeek.com.au.

Don’t forget: We have a competition running! It’s simple, you just need to give us a question. It ends on December 16, so get your entries in now.
