T3KD Weekly Seventy Four

This week we spent a fair amount of time talking about the next iPhone and iOS, we talked about how carriers are doomed if they try to end subsidies, and we talked about Student software and who should pay for it. That and a very deep question of the week.

T3kd Weekly 51: iPhone Speculation Spectacular

This week we talked a lot of iPhone. Granted when this was recorded we didn’t know if it would be the iPhone 4S (which it turned out to be) or the iPhone 5. So you can hear us speculating up a storm. We also talked Amazon, iTunes Match, Facebook and our weekly dose of Canada tech news. Oh and it was our first live broadcast, so if the audio sounds janky, let us know.

T3kd Weekly 47: Sex With A Laptop

It seems like every week, the T3kd podcast gets better and better. It also gets dirtier and dirtier. Gratefully, Vince will be back soon and so will the discipline and decorum that he brings. Until then, shit. We’ll do what we want. I don’t really remember what we talked about. Something about Apple, iPhone 5, and Google TV. Other than that it was just a blur. And apparently there were crickets.

T3kd Weekly 46: Matt Goes Solo

This week Matt was the only one available for the podcast, but instead of just postponing it like a smart person would do, he decided to go it alone. This is the result. It wasn’t pretty. Inside were thoughts on HP and WebOS, iPhone 5, iPad 3, Apple and its lies, and the end of the PC era.

T3kd Weekly 29: RIM Goes Full Special

I want to start by apologizing to everyone. This podcast had no tact whatsoever. We swore (it wasn’t me this time) and we made fun of people. We used words we shouldn’t have. So I will apologize right up front, and state that we don’t mean to offend anyone. We talked BlackBerry Playbook, Apple iPhone, and Windows Phone 7.  If you don’t know what the title means, it is an attribute to the edited version of Tropic Thunder.
