PlayStation Network hacked, Apple tracking every move you make and Delicious sold to the guys who started YouTube. All that and more on this week’s episode of TECHGEEK Weekly. Also, we have a little giveaway – Gears of War 3 Beta Codes!!
We’re back from a long break, with a bunch of stories from the last two weeks. As well, it is the last regular episode for Terence, so wish Stewart and Tom good luck in taking the reigns of organising the show notes every week.
