The Big show

Technology news and general tech advice for the consumer. Our weekly podcast will give you all the information that you want for gadgets, gizmos, news stories, tech shows, podcasting, cutting edge advances and light-hearted fun stuff. No speculation out loud, no political opinions and no hard sells. Longer than a bagel and coffee at breakfast in the morning. It’s a meaty Sunday dinner of a show but less stodgy…Thats The BIG show.
