Tunebox developer Phil Kast in the 97.3 KIRO-FM studios
This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast, we break down the latest developments in online music — including Google Music and iTunes Match — with the help of Phil Kast, the Seattle entrepreneur behind the
new app Tunebox for the iPhone.
That’s after our weekly news roundup, in which we debate whether
the new Kindle Fire tablet is worth spending the $199; talk about a new study showing which tech companies young professionals prefer; and grapple with the implications of a GameHouse survey that found that women who play online games have more sex than those who don’t.
Also listen for our App of the Week (a must-have for Seattle drivers) and our
Name that Tech Tune challenge, offering a chance to win a ticket to the big event of the season, the GeekWire Gala.
