This week on the GeekWire Podcast, our guest is Microsoft’s Ben Rudolph, better known as “Ben the PC Guy,” who answers our questions about the latest Windows PC hardware, talks about trends in slates and tablets, professes his love for solid state drives, and explains how to get a bag full of seven laptops through airport security, among other tips.
We open the show with our news roundup, including Lady Gaga crashing Amazon’s servers, a hedge fund manager calling for Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer to step aside, and Alaska Airlines equipping its pilots with iPads. In our final segment, we give the answer to our latest “Name that Tech Tune” contest and name the winners of the tickets to the GeekWire launch event.
