This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast, we put Steve Jobs’ resignation as Apple CEO into perspective and listen back to a classic moment from a classic product introduction by the Apple co-founder.

We also talk about the latest Facebook privacy change and get some very interesting news about the future of the Gnomedex conference — yes, it has a future — from Gnomedex founder and organizer Chris Pirillo himself, who joins us in the studio.

Tech consultant Frank Catalano, GeekWire’s Practical Nerd columnist, fills in as guest host this week and serves up a challenging and fun new edition of our Name that Tech Tune contest.
