TOPIC: Do you need a job so badly that you’re willing to give potential employers the keys to your private life? That’s just one of the questions we attempt to answer this week, in addition to looking at the Windows 8 Metro interface, getting excited about Photoshop 6 being available for free (well, until mid-April or so anyways) and hearing another fabulous geek trivia question from Jay Garmon:
If we had kept all planets given that designation throughout history (e.g., Pluto, or the asteroid Pallas), how many planets would there be in the Solar System today?
We have some great coolsites of the week too, some you’ll have to listen to the show for but others right here:

TOPIC: This week it’s just Dave and Mike hanging out and trying to figure out ways that Mike’s cold won’t interfere with the show. Riiiiiicolaaaaa! Mike does spend some time opining about the beauty of using Evernote to completely digitize your life – and breaks out three questions you need to really make it work for you: Will a digital version of your sentimental items be acceptable long-term? Do you have the assurance of permanence with your digitized items that is equivalent or greater than the physical? Can you find (and use) the item easier digitally than physically?
Plus you’ll want to go read this article by Mike Elgan of Computerworld, it’s got some great tips too!
Jay “Geek Trivia” Garmon adds to the fun, giving us another installment of his fantastic info – this week with a very apropos Star Trek theme! After all that, we also manage to have time to get you the cool sites of the week:
