Each week Salon writers discuss the latest news in the world of technology.
This week Salon's Tech writers Janelle Brown and Katharine Mieszkowski report on the hype over the Sony Playstation 2 console and unfamiliar features of the new MAC OS X.
Technology reporters from Salon also appear weekly on "Beyond Computers," a Public Radio International show, which airs on more than 200 stations around the country. The show explores the pervasive influence of technology on humanity -- from family, beauty and art to law, politics and the environment. On the show, our writers give their opinionated takes on the biggest technology stories of the week.
