On this week’s second DL.TV, Patrick and Robert are back in the hot seats to talk about more of the week’s tech news, including Intel finally released Conroe, ahead of schedule, and an early look at the new processors; a peek at the hot new game Chromehounds, the Banshee speaker system, which claims to be the “only 5.0 Surround Sound System In One Listening Station for the iPod, PSP and MP3 Players,” a point that Patrick and Robert contest, Virtual PC goes free, Sony possibly mulling putting their movies on memory stick, more tech news, and as usual viewer questions.

Another week, another set of cranky geeks talking tech! John C. Dvorak brings Om Malik, GigaOM; Sebastian Rupley, West Coast Editor, PC Magazine; and Natali Del Conte, West Coast Correspondent, Ziff Davis to the table to dish the week’s tech news and contentious points, including cell phones, hackers, Microsoft’s so-called iPod killer, and more. Specifically, whether or not big brother is watching you and listening to your calls and reading your email, hackers breaking into computers at the State Department, the long arm of IPTV, Microsoft claims to be readying an iPod killer of its own, online music publishing, and will AOL ditch the internet access business altogether to focus on its web services? All this and more on this week’s Crankygeeks.
