This week on Geek Actually, Harold Camping did forget to carry the one and re-predicts the end of the world for October, Samsung ordered to show their unreleased products to Apple, lab grown meat, high speed laser beam data transfers, the Apple Store makeovers, a salsa dancing Darth Vader and Tactical Sammiches! All this plus we weigh in with our opinions on the children on Facebook debate and our picks of the week. Prepare to geek out and enjoy.
Geek Actually is the fusion of the old Tech Actually and Geek Actually After Show podcasts into an all new show. All the Tech and geek goodness that you have come to expect from the old shows wrapped up and made easier to swallow as one simple, little, tasty podcast. DeltaKnight (AKA DAvid Murray) continues to supply us with some of the geekiest stories on the web and Josh and David love to play with the tech news.
Geek Actually is recorded live on Saturdays around 12pm (AEST UTC+10). Go to geekactually.com/live to watch it live.Your show links follow:
