Graphics testing, Blackberry PlayBook, and Digital Privacy on PCWorld Podcast #112

So how about that BlackBerry PlayBook? It's okay, but it's not going to knock the iPad 2 off its throne anytime soon. Ed Albro kicks off a discussion about how these non-Apple tablets are rushing to market without the sort of polish and software library necessary to put a dent in Apple's lead. At this point, are they just confirming with the public that the iPad is the only tablet worth owning? Alex Wawro also gives us some insight into the cool graphics and how-to projects going on in the PCWorld Labs these days. Finally, we discuss whether or not Apple is deliberately tracking you or not, and go over the EFF's Privacy Report Card.

Oh, and we answer a reader question! If you want us to answer your reader question in the next podcast, send it along to
