Utah Tech Radio Church SignNow in our third week, Tech Radio is gathering some new and welcome attention. We’re excited to welcome some panelists to the show and we’re looking forward to some new and interesting content ideas for your listening pleasure.

  • Microsoft’s IE patching process
  • A $4334.33 pair of hamburgers & our thoughts about bank-float and internal business controls.
  • Someone’s trying to sell the truck form Brokeback Mountain on ebay to pay for college.
  • MySpace as Protest Platform, and how technology is creating communities that could never have existed otherwise.
  • Tivo without the Tivo & how HDTV doesn’t work with Tivo! (GASP!)
  • Rob can’t seem to stay serious and talks about a funny video on YouTube
  • XM & Sirius have been hacked to stream windows powered smartphones
