Sadly there is no episode of Corner Geeks this week so we present Gagalcast: because we all fail now or then. Basically Gagalcast is random discussions before or after Corner Geeks recordings or just random discussion. This episode was recording after Corner Geeks 7: The Brunei Apple App Store at Patisserie in Gadong.

There are several videos to be released so stayed tuned and we should be back next week!

Introducing the Corner Geeks

So after a month after recording our first episode, here we go: Firdaus (@mfirdaus) and I talk about OS X with his recent purchase of his MacBook Air, and the discussion goes a bit technical/inside-baseball talking about keyboard shortcuts and we even ended up talking a bit about the iPad.

Do let us know what you think: feedback is highly appreciated =)
