Techcast CES 1: I’m Sorry, Michael Bay

By and on

Techcast Blogpost

We would have told you sooner – but apparently, someone didn’t release the last episode of the TechGeek Weekly podcast. Today is the unofficial start of a brand new podcast that replaces TechGeek Weekly called the Techcast – but don’t worry, it will still feature news, commentary and the irrelevant tangents of the old. And we kick off the episode with CES Press Day news.  Join Terence Huynh and Chris Southcott as they discuss the latest product announcements coming out of CES.
