This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast, we talk about the pilot of the Amazon Locker delivery system, the launch of iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S, and Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s surprising revelation about Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer during a visit to the company’s Redmond campus this week.

Our guest in the studio is Glenn Walcott, president of DoubleDown Interactive, who gives us the behind-the-scenes story of the Seattle company’s popular casino-style Facebook games.

Then we unveil our latest App of the Week, give the answer to last week’s Name that Tech Tune challenge, and try to stump you with a new one.
