TECHGEEK Podcast 21: We dropped the cable

Okay, we get it. We fail at comedy. Don’t get your knickers in a twist. We discuss the Wikileaks saga, the fact that Porn aims to be the next Google in stealing your private data and that Apple tries to push a dead social network with a dead celebrity. Yep, and while I’m so going to get angry emails from Michael Jackson fans, Tom is going to get emails from […]

Hulu : An Evil Plot to Destroy the World

Hulu gets big coup – two Viacom shows

By on

NBC Universal’s and News Corporation’s rival Viacom has now seen the light – sort of. Viacom is lending two popular shows on its Comedy Central television channel to the joint venture, which is gaining popularity, and I think it is a major coup, since it only has shows from NBC Universal and News Corporation among the other video content from The Onion and CNET. Since launching in October 2007, and […]
