Home-Tech-Album-125x125_thumb1_thumb1Jim (@jcollison) is joined this week by Christian Johnson, Andrew Morris(@unrealshots), Kevin Schoonover (@schoondoggy1979) and Greg Welch (@welchwerks) for show 135 of Home Tech.  With a large cast of hosts and Kevin coming in from Denver, we have a lengthy conversation around the idea of being “too plugged in” with all our digital devices and are we doing enough to promote STEM here in the United States.  We spend a few minutes covering the New Nokia Lumia 520, the video review from Mike Howard from of the NEST Thermostat, an update of IFA 2013, a review of the Leap Motion device and an update on the HP Proliant Microserver G8.

Great deals on Laptops and Netbooks at the Microsoft Store!
