eHow Tech Podcast #7: Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Awards, Choosing a Tablet

eHow Tech Blog

In episode 7 of the eHow Tech Podcast, we go one-on-one with a veritable icon of the geek universe: Popular Mechanics magazine.

This week, we chatted with Jerry Beilinson, Deputy Editor of Popular Mechanics. It’s time for the annual Breakthrough Awards, and so we talked to Jerry about the technology that made the cut in the 9th annual awards.

Jerry handled the Geek Trivia Quiz with poise and cunning as well. He answered questions about tech urban legends, chainsaws, and the arctic in hopes of winning a Think Geek Build on Brick for podcast listener Jeremy Stewart. You can enter to have a guest play the Quiz for you during a future episode by completing the entry form.

Also on the show, we talked about tablet PCs. With the holidays around the corner, you might want to pick one up as a gift. We compare and contrast the major models, and even give you the skinny on a few good sub-$150 options. For more, check out Under-$150 Tablets That Are Actually Good.
