4: A Notebook for Your Face

May 29, 2014 at 1:00PM • 1 hour 7 minutes • Wiki Entry

This week on Supercharged we're talking about a handful of Apple rumors, Microsoft's new Skype translator, Springpad's demise, and more. We're also answering your questions about renting an apartment, choosing the right web host, and getting a good deal on broadband internet in the US (if that's even possible). Plus tips and downloads, of course!

This week's episode is sponsored by the nice folks at MailChimp.
