Is Tim Cook on the Way Out of Apple?

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 30:13 — 20.8MB) I’m on the road for the last day of CAWorld. I talk about coming to Vegas twice in one month and the tolls it takes on you. Lots of great tech news and geek news too. Since I’m on the road, I decided to try out this Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB/XLR Microphone. It did a pretty decent job in capture – although I had to go in and do some post production for volume. What do you think about it?
