This week the guys take a look at the perfect phone size, the best of e3 thus far, and how much Apple’s avoidance of taxes matters to the public. Vince learns to use Twitter, Ricky bitches about stupid Americans, and more on The 3 Cast! iTunes subscriptions for the video version is coming next week! We have the storage figured out, and the feed will be submitted to iTunes for review tomorrow. Download mp3 | AAC | Video Hosts: Matthew Weber, Vincent Hui, Ricky Williams Topics: iPhone 5 screen size and WWDC Predictions, Best of show at E3, Apple and Taxes, Question of the Week
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.
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.

This week we focused on a lot of diverse and interesting news. We talked Yahoo! and their pending fire sale, we tried to figure out what is going on at HP, we talked about the iPhone 5. We discussed why 3D in gaming is not all it’s cracked up to be, and we talked about another Android tablet. And we tell you how YOU can WIN an iPad 2!
This week we talk Windows 8 and how its going to suck for your mouse, we talk iPhone 5 (of course), and we bash RIM a little. Okay. A lot. We discuss our gaming preferences and discuss the reviews of Gears of War 3. And we have Skype problems (imagine that). All that and more on this week’s T3kd Weekly podcast!

So we’re back after a week off, and we managed to get through the whole podcast without swearing. For true. Don’t trust me? Listen and find out! We talked about the Amazon Tablet, a Kindle subscription service, the iPhone on Sprint, and Windows 8. We also introduced a new segment all about Canadian Tech news. Throwing a little love to our Canadian friends.

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.
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.

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.
