TECHGEEK Weekly 29: New Blood Required

By on

While James and Stewart are out, we get Tom Wood – a former host of a former TECHGEEK Podcast incarnation – to help us dissect the news that Playboy is going to the iPad uncensored, the University of Sydney having a privacy headache and Steve Jobs has gone on medical leave – again.

Tom Wood, who also happens to be a known advocate of cyber-bullying prevention, also finds himself doing Stewart’s job.

And yes, Stewart and James will be back next week (hopefully). Hope you enjoy the episode. See you all next week, and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE!
