This week’s second episode of DL.TV brings us back to the table with Patrick and Robert to discuss the week’s tech news, including Apple’s WWDC announcements and whether they were somewhat boring, Microsoft shelves Virtual PC for the Macintosh, (why make Virtual PC when you can sell licensed copies of Windows to Mac users to be used with Boot Camp or Parallels?) Nine critical patches this week for Windows XP, and Microsoft paying for delaying Office 2007 and Vista as well as expanding the Genuine Advantage program. Also, the crew will take a look at Lego Star Wars II, and take a whole slew of viewer questions, both about tech and about the show.
This week on CrankyGeeks, Sebastian Rupley, West Coast Editor, PC Magazine; Cade Metz, Writer, PCMag.com; and Molly Wood, CNET sit down with John C Dvorak to talk tech and get cranky! This week the panel talks about the breach of security at AOL and the release of search data of many of its users, events and unveilings at Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference, an Exxon front company is behind an anti-global warming video on YouTube, and more.
