ausTech news - Episode 61: SKYPE GO BOOM

Episode 61: SKYPE GO BOOM!

This week we talk about the system-wide outtage of skype.
With the reliance of skype being so great, what does it being down mean for its future?

I also talk about the future of Cooling CPU's, as well as The blu ray and hd-dvd war still going strong (and probably to their own loss!)
