Speaking in Tech: Is this a mascot convention? Oh ... my God
Greg's unbelieve-fur-ball hotel experience plus this week's cloudy tech news
Our regular podcast, this week recorded live in San Jose, California, is back with your hosts Greg Knieriemen and Ed Saipetch – Sarah Vela is away.
Before getting down to the technology news of the day, Greg reveals he just checked into a hotel that he thought was holding a sports mascot convention. But rather than being a meet-up for people who support their college team, it was filled with... well, this. He was put on the 18th floor to avoid the, er, noise.
