Geek Actually Ep135 – All Out Of Gum

Hosted by: David McVay & Josh Philpott

This week on Geek Actually David and Josh take a look at the two major events of the week, Apple’s WWDC keynote and the latest from E3. David looks at the latest from Apple and Josh delivers his 3rd annual E3 round up. They also give their opinions on the new game “Duke Nukem Forever”, was it worth the wait? All this plus some weird geek news and cows that produce human milk. Its a long one so get comfortable 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.

    I thought I start to give your comment section a little bit of life.

    I read about the new Apple building before but only had a look at it because of your link. I think Josh is right with the idea that it looks like a church. 
    Additionally I thought more likely to be the goal of having basically all employees in one building that it is easier to monitor them better. Also, do you think employees will be able to live there. This way Apple would have total control.
