Nice podcast about recent technology related news.

The podcasters stay on topic, get to the point and don't talk too loudly or quietly. You will actually feel like you learned useful information by listening to this.

Apple IS 1984 ,

New format is blah

Kinda wish they’d go back to the previous format of current events in tech.

They have plenty of personality on the podcast, but this “history of ...” podcasts are already stale and rather boring.

DJ HiFi ,

Always entertaining

This podcast by the folks at Digital Trends always gives me some chuckles. Clearly, they don’t take things too seriously. Along with the humor, there’s always some actual interesting (and likely quite odd) tech news and discussion. Makes 30 minutes disappear in a hurry.
