Yeah, sorry for the delay. All of our editors have been busy, and I forgot to schedule to post this on the blog. Terence Huynh hosts this week’s TECHGEEK Tip about replacing the core main features of MobileMe for free. No more will you have to pay more than $99 a month when you can get these features for FREE! Well, with the exception of one. This is based on Chris Southcott’s tip about the same thing, which is posted on the site.

It may sound stupid, but yes, today’s topic is how to search with Bing and how to search using it. (Apparently, it’s an issue). As well, it’s not James who is doing this tip, it’s Stewart, so we basically have no say on what is happening. Terence is recording the next tip, so at least we can be a bit prepared. And apologies for bursting your eardrums. And no, we haven’t sold out yet. Yes, we are running out of tips to cover. So, if you have any, please send them to us using our contact form, or just simply comment.

Note: Also expect a write-up by James Wilson soon about this topic. TECHGEEK Tips are released every Monday, and you can listen to it beforehand when the TECHGEEK Podcast is released on a Sunday.
