Gigawhat: Episode 8 – Facebook Checks You into Places

Facebook promises to take you to new places, whether you want it or not!

Joshua Caleb joins us as we talk about what’s new on Facebook and consequently, what’s got privacy advocates once again up at arms and screaming. We also look at Apple’s new killswitch idea (Is it just me or is it not that hard to imagine a giant “kill all” button at Steve Job’s office at Apple HQ?). We also got a new hack for the PS3 (We’ll see how long THAT lasts!), some iPad news and what’s this…? Apparently Rupert Murdoch owns the sky?
