GeekWire Radio: Apple’s big quarter, Bill Gates’ legacy, and the world of digital puzzles

This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast, we recap the gigantic quarter posted by Apple, hear Bill Gates reflect on his final meeting with Steve Jobs, talk about an innovative new solar charging attachment for the iPhone, and assess the possibility of putting Kinect sensors into laptops.

Our guest in the studio is Roy Leban, the founder of puzzle technology startup Puzzazz, which makes puzzle books for Amazon’s Kindle. We talk with Roy about Puzzazz, the Kindle and the future of digital books and devices, before John and I go head-to-head in a brain-teaser presented by Roy on air — with a very surprising outcome. Go here if you want to challenge yourself before listening to the show.

Roy then presents a puzzle for listeners to solve at home, for a chance to win tickets to the upcoming GeekWire Game Night on Feb. 8 in Seattle.
