As promised, we recorded the pilot of the new TR Out Loud video series, which is called "TechRepublic's Hot 5." The pilot turned out so well, I decided to publish it so that you all can enjoy it too! In this episode, I count down the hot 5 discussions of the week. If you're not a fan of video, you can choose to just listen to the audio file.Hot 5 discussion threads:
