NZ Tech Podcast: Episode 34

In this special episode of the NZ Tech Podcast two of NZ’s mosted experienced social media strategists. Piero Liguori (ex 2degrees) and Tom Bates (Contagion, ex Air NZ) joined Paul Spain to discuss a range of topics. High on the agenda was the new Facebook including new features such as Facebook Timeline and associated privacy concerns. And we pondered what opportunity Google+ has since opening up the beta gates so anyone can join without an invite.

News topics this week included discussion of the Samsung Galaxy S Wi-Fi 5.0 (Android), Windows Phone 7.5 and we discuss November iPhone 5 availability in NZ.

And The Onion’s ‘Facebook CIA Project’ was a point of entertainment – if you haven’t seen it before this is well worth watching.
