TECHGEEK Weekly 95: Google Now, is it a little bit creepy?

By , , and on

Google stole the week with Jelly Bean; creeping everyone (except Chris) out with Google Now; launches a new tablet; and disappoints Chris with a crappy iOS app for Google Drive. And could Microsoft be the one to save BlackBerry? All this and more on TECHGEEK Weekly.

The entire crew is back! Stewart has returned from the Big Brother house, while Tom has come back (albeit briefly). They join Terence and Chris in discussing the tech news – in the traditional irrelevancy as before.
