TECHGEEK Weekly 54: You Can’t Rate Us

By on

We rejoice in the fact that Australia will get an R18+ rating (so get ready to play Mortal Kombat), we argue about the new MacBook Air becoming the entry-level Mac and is Yahoo very desperate to get Hulu? All this and more on TECHGEEK Weekly.

Terence is the host as Stewart is not here, and is joined by Chris Southcott and Tom Solari. And because the arguing, this may be the longest podcast recorded – locking in at 1 hour 15 minutes. See, this is what happens when Stewart leaves.

Anyway, enjoy. Don’t forget to subscribe and listen!
