TECHGEEK Weekly 97: Good Morning, Monday?

By , and on

Good Morning!? What are we doing here on Monday? Well, we have more hacking stories like from Yahoo, Formspring and Nvidia; we talk about expensive headphones and Windows 8 – we have a release date (sort of). All this and more on TECHGEEK Weekly.

Yes, because we didn’t have release an episode on Sunday because we were, well, busy with other things. But we recorded this on Sunday night for your consumption. Should also point out that we recorded this later than usual because, well, we had a very interesting conversation at the preshow that made Stewart not record until 90 minutes after the proposed time. (sigh)

We’ll be back on our regular schedule tomorrow – Saturday (hopefully). Don’t forget to listen and subscribe - Terence
