There hasn’t been a lot of tech news in the last few weeks, but that doesn’t mean there is real news. To take the tech angle, we go back to twitter and see how it has become the spot for instant news. We tackle the new twitter feed changes, then talk about the turmoil around the world, and how has twitter changed the landscape of news.
Facebook’s big announcement brings your identity to your Android phone with Facebook home. Your fearless cohosts invite Kelly Guimont to help dust off our Facebook accounts and see if this is enough to respark our love affair with the socialiest of social networks.

Part 1: We talk about Falcon Pro’s Twitter API limiting. We all agree that we care because users bring social interaction to Twitter.
Part 2: Next Chaim details the new Google+ oAuth offering. Spoiler alert: Chaim loves it, Harry says he rather iCloud (whatever that means).
Part 3: We go back into discussing what should be the new social network. We talk about App.net’s freemium model.
[Editor’s note: We should be back to normal in terms of posting. New episodes should be out on Friday].
