a nice companion for pc mag
This podcast is pretty much just a advertisement for the magazine Jim Louderback works for, with comerical breaks. While they do give some actual information out every now and then, whenever they are about to go in depth into a topic, they say "to find out more, you will have to get the latest issue of the magazine". There are better podcasts out there if you are interested in tech.
Great Tech News
Louderback and Norton make a great tech team that present the news in an easy to digest format. The shows are informative and absolutely hilarious. The back and forth between the guys is what sets this apart from most dry tech shows.
I love these guys. Better than all the other nerdy tech podcasts.
