This week we welcome as our guest Greg Davies of Social Blend, The Round Up, Tardis Blend, and podcasts too numerous to mention. We discuss the unveiling of Google’s Android Market and the return of The Daily Show & The Colbert Report to Hulu. Then we launch into a discussion of what is turning out to be the story of the year, the protests in Cairo, Egypt, including the government’s complete shutdown of internet services.
