TECHGEEK Weekly 51: (Insert Brand Name Here) +

By on

MySpace gets sold to an advertising company, Google launches another social network, while Mana Bar makes us debate whether Melbourne is better than Sydney (which is totally true). All this and more on this week’s TECHGEEK Weekly.

While we also talk about other things, turns out that recording it in the afternoon is much more better. And if you thought Tom was annoying, then it’s about to get worse with the addition of his (relative’s) iPad. Oh, and did we mention Melbourne is better?
