Let's Talk Geek regular (in IRC as well as show guest), Luke Potgieter joins us to regale us with tales of awesome Made in SA X-Ray scanners, Android security holes, a sweet windscreen HUD for your smartphone from Garmin, all the funtimes he had with UEFI and endless fun with the Roomba game.

    What geekery is this‽

    • Johan convinces us to switch our media servers to Plex
    • Update on Telkom's plans for its wholesale ADSL product (IPC) and copper network
    • UEFI funtimes with Luke

    Kicker

    The Roomba game.

    And a bonus if you've read all the way to the bottom of the show notes... Something that didn't make it into the show due to a grievous oversight on the part of the show-runner: Follow Self-aware Roomba on Twitter.
