What better way to recap the weekly highlights at TechRepublic than with TROLOV — or TR Out Loud on Video. This episode contains the usual suspects, including the top discussions, most active members, and photo contributions. If you’re not a fan of video, you can choose to just listen to the audio file.

Top discussion threads:

  1. Internet Explorer: Is it time for some respect
  2. How to quit your job
  3. What technology would you take with you into the wilderness?
  4. 10 ways to stay sane in your cubicle
