TECHGEEK Weekly 69: We went there?

By on

After three weeks, we’re back. Facebook infected with porn, the land of the free is trying to restrict your internet freedoms, and is Microsoft looking to buy Yahoo? All this and more on this week’s edition of TECHGEEK Weekly.

With Stewart Wilson in New Zealand, host Terence Huynh is joined with Chris Southcott and James Wilson to discuss, commentate and argue over the tech news of these past two weeks – yes, we had to do a recap.

Happy Thanksgiving! (and happy NZ Election Day!)

So, discuss, commentate, listen and subscribe!
