Trending: Pet care startup emerges in Seattle to modernize veterinary care, with help from Rover

This week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast, we look ahead to the upcoming Steve Jobs biography, and go over some of the controversial tidbits that have leaked out in advance.

We also assess Microsoft’s new Seattle retail store, talk about a plea from TechStars to the “godfathers” of Seattle tech, and discuss the future of Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood as a technology hub.

Joining us in the studio this week is GeekWire columnist Monica Guzman, who also talks with John and me about her take on the odd story of the Capitol Hill waitress whose frustration over a customer’s insulting tip led to an ill-advised Facebook manhunt.

And in our final segment, it’s our App of the Week and the latest Name that Tech Tune challenge.
