As Sean continues his wild holiday somewhere in the US, Steven Hodson and I carry on Braindead TechCast’s fine tradition of Techmeme Friday’s tear down of the headlines on Techmeme as we make fun of them at the same time.
We also had some fun with a rumor about Sean receiving something at his hotel room that he then started playing with, but we’ll leave that to your imaginations – unless of course you want to share your warped thoughts as to what he is playing with.
If you do just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll share them on the Monday show.
Enjoy the show 🙂
