Dave professes that he is going to become a tech hermit, but then we spend a lot of time talking about technology and how we use it in our every day lives. A bit of break from the norm this week, we cover all of the big Android announcements from the week and our only real discussion about Apple is a rumored credit card.
Make sure to join the Notnerd Facebook Group and let us know how you tech better. We’re also looking for your ProTips and Picks of the Week.
