Great tech show

These guys keep the rest of us informed of the technology world in layman language! They’re great!

Great Technology Information

I use this broadcast to get general information on tech stuff, apps and tips. Also learn about topics and tools that I didn’t know existed.

Riptide75 ,

A bit out of touch.

Sometimes they have good information about current technology trends. But I have to give pause, when a “technology show“, can’t even do something simple like properly set up audio for a podcast. Also, the amount that the hosts simp for China is quite offputting.
