TechGeek Weekly 130: Screwed by Everyone

By on

Kogan gets screwed by Telstra, Microsoft gets screwed by Google, and Breaking Bad fans get screwed by Apple. We also talk about Microsoft doing more 180’s with the Xbox, alleged Nokia RT Tablet and something that Terence loves about Sydney. All this and more on TechGeek Weekly.

Join Stewart Wilson, Chris Southcott and Terence Huynh for your weekly update on tech news. Terence was hoping that Stewart and Chris would fight over something but Stewart agreed with Chris – much to Terence’s disappointment.
