65Bits #171: HR65

We have decided to stop doing 65bits and switch to doing Human Resource 65 instead. Kidding kidding. Daniel will kill me at least twice if I dare to do this. But this week (or rather few weeks ago), we talk about top Microsoft management people leaving the company. Google on the other hand hires Palm’s Matias Duarte as their user Experience Director for Android. If the respond for this episode is good, we might consider HR65 next.

PS: Apologies for the lack of posting lately. We did record 65bits. But the hamster is too busy to edit the episodes. More late posting coming up. Hamster working overtime
