65Bits Episode 138: Lots of Google and Microsoft

Its a week full of Google and Microsoft news. DK managed to have a close up with the mysterious Google Trike that is making its round in Singapore. We talk about the Google Sidewiki and Google Wave which none of us have an invite yet. Microsoft is shipping free security software. Microsoft Vista and IE market share drop and perhaps Microsoft Fix it can do something about it. And to save us from the Google and Microsoft overload, Hisham shares with us his views on the Wacom Bamboo.

DK, Hisham, Justin, Nicole
