They're baa-ack.... It's another enterprise and consumer tech cast hosted by The Dude of enterprise tech, Greg Knieriemen, cloud and storage playa Ed Saipetch and web2.0 maestra Sarah Vela.

This week we discuss:

  • The return of the prodigal Sarah;
  • Chris Evans talks storage architecture;
  • Greg gets his Nexus Galaxy.... but the trip to the store didn’t go well;
  • Ed addresses recent complaints about his language on the show;
  • Chris Evans becomes the official “Speaking in Tech” Ambassador to the UK; and
  • the run-up to Dell Storage Forum and HP Discover in June.

  • Chris Evans faces down the 10 Big Questions...
