Another fine instalment of El Reg's all-encompassing tech podcast wings its way to loyal Reg readers (and listeners), hosted by Greg Knieriemen, Ed Saipetch and Sarah Vela. This week all three of the terrific trio are together for the first time in weeks!

Technet's gone forever, and Eddie speaks movingly about how much the $4,000/yr subscription service meant to him. Sarah boasts about her new VRTX ("a shared infrastructure platform" from Dell, so now you know) while Greg holds forth on the whole Snowden-Assange-Ecuador saga. All the team take bets on Snowden's final destination - Reg readers are invited to place their own bets in the comments below.

Oh, and in a homage to Canada Day (1 July) Ed tries to sing the first few lines of the Canadian national anthem. Viva Canada! ... um, wait a sec ...

This week the team discuss:

  • Eddie and Greg banter about Cisco Live and Orlando
  • Geek Karaoke
  • Sarah's VRTX
  • Microsoft kills TechNet, Freeloaders revolt
  • Snowden getting the squeeze
  • FalconStor CEO Jim McNiel resigns
  • Twitter fail
  • IT isn't dumping infrastructure for the cloud
  • Benioff and Ellison become strange bedfellows
