A+ Tech News Podcast!
This is a great podcast for tech news. Great coverage of curent events.
WinCustomize style, now in audio form
PowerUser.tv is an interest podcat, especially if you frequent one of Stardock's child sites (WinCustomize, JoeUser, et al) or Neowin.net, as the big wigs from both parties, along with the host, discuss many technology-related issues. They do lean a bit toward Windows on the OS side of things, so the staunch anti-Microsoft crow may find themselves disagreeing on many topics. Overall, very well-done.
I love this podcast. it's both informative and entertainment. Sometimes the various issues of the hosts, all of whom contribute in some form to stardock or it's affiliates, seeps into the show, but for the most part it's great. I want to see this become a lot more popular. I'd recomend it to anyone who wants some tech news, that isn't filled with gibberish acronyms and has some humor to it.
