Show #49

April 10th, 2008 -
It felt like such a slow news week, but we were able to dig up some interesting things to talk about. Kevin, Jeff, Pete, and Chris are all present at this show and we even have a surprise guest at the end of the show: Senator Ted Stevens. Pete is back with his brand new headset, and if his voice sounds like pure pwnage it's because he's using the fatal1ty headset. This week we discuss the Rick Rolling of the New York Mets, Walmart.com DRM free, Internet safety vs sex education, Strong Bad coming to the Wii, and much more. You can provide feedback to the show at www.techtalkshow.com.
