Facebook Caves To User Outrage and Google Adds Semantic Search On PC World Podcast Episode 22
This week, PC World Editors Robert Strohmeyer, Tim Moynihan and Mark Sullivan bring you the 22nd episode of the PC World Podcast. This edition is a lively discussion about the aftermath of Facebook’s most recent facelift, Google's new semantic search, and the new Webbie HD camera.
