The PCWorld Podcast is back to tickle your tympanic membranes with talk of the latest Facebook customer satisfaction survey, the new Dell Streak and Fall camera announcements.

Dell has brought the unholy union of a smartphone and an iPad to the American market in the Streak, a 5-inch palm-sized phone/tablet that's too big to fit in your phone pocket and too small to use comfortably as a tablet PC. Listen in as Robert Strohmeyer slams Dell for shipping the Streak with an outdated Android 1.6 OS, leading into a quick look at the future of Android tablets and what Dell needs to build a viable iPad competitor.

Stay tuned to hear our thoughts on the results of the most recent American Consumer Satisfaction Index survey, which reveals Facebook scored an average of 64 on the ACSI 100-point satisfaction scale. That places Zuckerberg's baby squarely amidst the bottom 5 percent of private companies surveyed, below internet tax-filing services and cigarette manufacturers.

Big camera announcements abound this week, and editor Tim Moynihan leads us through the highlights in preparation for the busy holiday season. Our notable products include the Panasonic Lumix DMC LX-5 and the Samsung ST600, are you looking to upgrade to a better camera or even make the leap to 3D? Sony serves editors Jason Cross and Tim Moynihan a stalemate in their wager regarding 3D camera compatibility, stay 'till the end to hear the outcome and better understand this Samsung promo video!
