This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast, we talk with Gary Flake, the founder of Clipboard, a Seattle-area startup that offers a tool for clipping, saving and sharing sections web pages in live form — preserving not only text and images but also links and interactivity.

It’s a competitive market right now, and we also talk about how Clipboard stacks up and differentiates itself against the likes of Pinterest.

That follows our weekly news roundup, in which we explain what really gets us excited about Apple’s new iPad announcement.

We also bring in a special guest, my mom, who is visiting this week without the paperback books she normally takes on a trip. She explains how she has been able to use her new Kindle to significantly reduce the amount she spends on books every month.

Also listen for our App of the Week, the answer to last week’s Name that Tech Tune challenge, and one of our favorite moments from this week’s GeekWire Summit, featuring Dave Dederer of the Presidents of the United States of America.
