TOPIC: Dave and Jay and Mike have a wonderful Geekmas together, celebrating new news and reviewing some old stories as well as discussing Psy’s billionth view and the death of the water cooler – but the rise of the meme! We also continue the Dragon Naturally Speaking giveaway … sign up today!
Jay Garmon Provides the thought provoking geek trivia of the week with this whopper:
What historical figure came in to buck up the morale of the crew of Apollo 8 before their pre-Christmas launch?
To top everything off like a star on top of the proverbial tree, we even get some great cool sites of the week in!

TOPIC: Today we’re joined by Robert Siciliano from McAfee, who provides a great rundown on what you should be worried about going online this holiday season! We cover the gamut from android malware and driveby infections, to wrong transaction email phishing, scareware, and why you may not be as safe with that Mac as you think!
With Jay Garmon and Dave notably absent, Mike takes the opportunity (as usual) to rant. This week, Mike gets freaky about SOPA, and waxes on about what’s required for tablets to really take off in the marketplace.
Somehow, things stay on-track and on-time enough that we get some really great coolsites of the week too!
- McAfee AllAccess – Robert mentions McAfee’s awesome, comprehensive security package on-air in our interview, and it’s definitely worth checking out!
