TECHGEEK Weekly 93: Macbooks, Domains and Shampoos

By , and on

The New MacBooks are out – with no Ethernet, a Skype call will land you 15 years in Jail (we tell you where) and who is getting their own version of a .com domain. Yes, get ready for this week’s edition of TECHGEEK Weekly – powered by Shampoo brands apparently.

Turns out, Terence is starting to get a cold, and basically with little tech news, it basically became something of a talkfest instead. He is joined with Chris Southcott and Harley McEvoy since Stewart is out (and sadly not Kings Cross),  and Tom is out at a retreat – yes I know, in Winter.

Listen, and hopefully enjoy?
