Speaking in Tech

The week's tech news stories are dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic, although Melissa (@solutiongeek) and Peter (@petersmallbone) do manage to find some other stories out there too. The pair talk about Everlywell's new coronavirus test that you can do at home; Elon Musk's offer to make ventilators; Microsoft's success with Teams; NASA's misstep on cloud egress charges; IBM mainframe and Chinese server sales on the up; ransomware crooks not targetting healthcare; the iPad Pro getting tooled up much like a Surface Pro; and more!
