This week, we look at the recent stock market mini-plunge and figure out if fat fingers or rogue trading robots were to blame. Then, a bizarre Twitter backdoor hack briefly let anyone add celebrity followers to his or her account; and Dan and Scott debate "iPad Fatigue," which we define as a lack of new killer apps.
On the hardware side, we look back at HP's very first laptop, a $3,000 beast from 1984, and also look ahead at Sony's revamped Vaio P high-end quasi-Netbook.
This week's video game giveaway is a copy of Dead to Rights: Retribution for the PS3; feel free to fast-forward to the end of the show for details on how to get hooked up with that, or even drop by our Digital City Facebook fan page.
