Christopher Breen, happily unemployed, joins John and Dave today to do his darndest to help your two favorite geeks solve the world's problems (by way of answering your Mac and iOS-related questions). Yes, they get geeky, and they also reminisce in the way that only these three long-time geeks (and long-time friends) can. Definitely one you won't want to miss.
