TECHGEEK Weekly 94: Don’t Download This Show (Because Microsoft is Winning)

Microsoft shocks everyone with two decent announcements – the Surface and Windows Phone 8; MOG launches in Australia and tries to beat Spotify and Facebook finally lets you edit your comments so you don’t have to do the crappy chat-style edits. All this and more on TECHGEEK Weekly.

Tom and Stewart aren’t in again – apparently, they’rebusy – so Terence and Chris take the helm of the podcast and actually discuss the news.
