2011 – A Year of Many Things: A recap of the big events of the year

By , , , and on

The year 2011 was one year that we will all never forget. Even though they were all in the beginning of the year, the floods in Queensland and Brazil, the earthquakes in Christchurch and the tsunami in the north of Japan are still present in all of our minds. We also saw the death of a tech luminary, Steve Jobs; and the powerful News Corporation losing its influence over politicians […]

James Wilson joins the podcast again (for the last few minutes of the episode) […]

TECHGEEK Weekly 30: Death by SMS

By on

Wow. We’ve reached 30 episodes – who knew from the beginning we would actually have reached this far. Anyway, we discuss the IPv4 running out of addresses, the new PSP2 by Sony and the Egypt Internet Blackout. We also find out that we are really good at debating points of view, so you may find this episode to be longer than what we usually have our podcasts Sorry if we […]

Screw the colour white – iPhone 4 now gets a clear case

By on

Most phones come in a range of vibrant, or dull, colours – just not smartphones. The iPhone 4 is an example of that, only offering those who want the device in black or white (there are ways, however, to get colour casings for the phone). But what about one that is, well, transparent?

TECHGEEK Weekly 28: The War Against Buttons

So it turns out, our “Powered by” gets crude when I do it. Anyway, we cover the Verizon iPhone 4, Vodafone’s massive security fail and MySpace being sold off? Oh, and find out how ChatRoulette (remember that) is making some dough from an unlikely source. Stewart is sick for this episode – so officially ending his perfect attendance record.

iPhone 4 gets some bling – with a whole lot of diamonds

It’s a bit much, don’t you think. But unless you actually have the money to purchase that, then you will have to see this from afar (your monitor). This is the iPhone 4 Diamond Queen Edition – and no, it’s not from Apple. It’s actually from a UK jeweller named Stuart Hughes, who has a history of adding bling to gadgets and televisions. This one now joins the list of […]

White iPhone 4 delayed again, hit stores in Spring?

By on

For some reason or another, Apple just can’t get it right when it comes with the white version of the iPhone 4. It missed the original date of July, and was given another delay to the end of this year. Now, Cupertino has given a release date for the long-waited device: Spring. Next year. Or in our case, Autumn. Apple hasn’t disclosed why the white version has been a pain […]

iPhone 4 free case or bumper program ending September 30

By on

Remember when Apple said that they’d offer free iPhone 4 cases to help ease the reception issues? And remember how they said that they’d reassess the offer on September 30? Well Apple did “evaluate” the issue and has come to the conclusion that “the iPhone 4 antenna issue is even smaller than we originally thought.” Thus the program will end September 30.¬†After that they are “returning to our normal returns […]
