We talked about HP’s decision to discontinue its webOS devices, the prospects for Amazon.com taking on Apple’s iPad, Facebook’s new privacy controls, Scientific American naming Seattle the No. 1 tech city in the country, and this weekend’s Penny Arcade Expo — geez, we covered lots of stuff — during GeekWire’s periodic appearance on the Weekday program on KUOW-FM in Seattle this morning.

I particularly enjoyed when Marcie Sillman, filling in for regular host Steve Scher, took note of the shiny MacBook Pro I brought into the studio and pointed out that she was running not one but two Windows PCs at that particular moment. Just for the record, my other favorite machine is a ThinkPad running Windows 7. (Maybe I need a laptop sticker to that effect.)

At any rate, here’s the audio in case you missed it, and links to the stories we discussed.
