    Techcast CES 2: The Urge with David Pogue

    Techcast CES 2: The Urge with David Pogue

    More CES talk with Chris Southcott and Terence Huynh in another CES episode of the Techcast – I personally call it the “filler” episodes once we actually decide what to do with the new podcast. We also talk about privacy in an era where Intel’s Jarvis and Google Glass exists, and how David Pogue is wrong about every single technology blog.

    Also, did I mention I’m still tired from yesterday? So this is a bit of a rushed podcast. We’ll be a bit more chirpy tomorrow. – Terence Huynh

    Techcast CES 1: I’m Sorry, Michael Bay

    We would have told you sooner – but apparently, someone didn’t release the last episode of the TechGeek Weekly podcast. Today is the unofficial start of a brand new podcast that replaces TechGeek Weekly called the Techcast – but don’t worry, it will still feature news, commentary and the irrelevant tangents of the old. And we kick off the episode with CES Press Day news.  Join Terence Huynh and Chris Southcott as they discuss the latest product announcements coming out of CES.
