The GeekWire radio show and podcast returns from its brief holiday hiatus this weekend with a special in-studio guest, Bill Sleeper, the 96-year-old retired engineer from the Seattle region who helps his fellow seniors empower themselves with technology by introducing them to the world of the iPhone and mobile apps.
Topics discussed during the weekly news segment include a new device for paying restaurant bills, apps for navigating the new 520 tolls, and the study that found an overabundance of Kindle Fire users in Seattle. Also listen for our App of the Week, and a new installment of our Name that Tech Tune challenge.
A big thanks to Josh Kerns of 97.3 KIRO-FM for hosting the show with John this week after a cold got the better of my voice.
