TECHGEEK Weekly 58: Thanks for all the iPhones

By on

Steve Jobs has resigned. Long live the King. In addition, we go in tangents – so yes, welcome to the long winded podcast of random tangents. Thanks to our two guests. That’s this week on TECHGEEK Weekly.

Stewart is sick, Chris is gone and James is, well, off in la la land. So, Terence and Tom are forced to get two random people. @Ticky and @IntelMiner are on this week’s podcast – and yes, you can send your complaints to the usual place.
