TECHGEEK Weekly 50: Where’s Our Cake, Microsoft?

By , , , , , , and on

We have turned fifty, Nokia says that we should not look at “Sea Ray”, and has Apple made a fatal mistake with its new version of Final Cut Pro? All this and more on this week’s special edition of TECHGEEK Weekly.

And although it’s a very celebratory episode – it’s no time to celebrate when LulzSec is on the prowl. But if you’re looking for a party, this episode was recorded earlier – so we hopefully sound a bit more sober than before.

This episode sees the return of Gabriel Huynh and sees the debut of both Adrian Cajili and Ashton Bernard on the podcast – and hopefully will be joining on the roundtable sometime later in the year.
