Old Tech News is the audiobook edition of my tech writings from The Chicago Sun-Times and elsewhere.

Too often I find myself sad to have one of Andy Ihnatko's great pieces of writing sitting in my Instapaper queue. Now I can listen to them narrated by the author along with my favorite podcasts. Thanks Andy!
Looking Forward to More
Good Day Folks!
What a great idea for a podcast! I always enjoy what Andy Ihnatko and 5by5 have to offer. I value Andy's opinion, he is un-biased, and his reviews are strait and to the point.
