Tech News August 23, 2012

Today is my eldest son’s birthday, and he would like nothing more than the tastiest, oven-roasted and then crunchy-fried news.  Well, that’s not true at all… he really wants a Google Nexus 7 tablet so he can play Minecraft all day.  Alas, no Minecraft or tablet news today.

But we have all the other honey-roasted and double-dipped Tech News you can shake a stick at!
