TECHGEEK Weekly 74: CES, Rdio and Other Things

By on

And we’re back for another year. This week, we recap that CES event with the latest craze of ultrabooks, look at the Galaxy Nexus and talk about Rdio.

Terence Huynh, Stewart Wilson, Tom Solari and Chris Southcott come back for another series of TECHGEEK Weekly and we’ve also produced a video version – which we are editing at the moment.

We also like to thank Sony, Rode Microphones, AVerMedia and Telestream for their support with our ambitious CES coverage.
