Facebook Privacy Woes, Google Tablets on PCWorld Podcast 77

On this week's show, Technologizer founder Harry McCracken and David Spark of Spark Media Solutions join PCWorld editors Robert Strohmeyer and Jason Cross to explore the ever deepening chasm of Facebook privacy problems.

We also examine Zynga's plans to create a gaming site outside of Facebook, and whether Facebook's retaliation could finally (hopefully!) end those annoying Farmville posts.

Meanwhile, Google is reported to be working on an Android tablet for Verizon's wireless network. Will it ever present a threat to Apple's iPad, or will it fall on the pile of also-ran slates that came before?
