The Techsperts: Google TV, iPad 3, Facebook Timeline

Last week Apple unveiled its 3rd generation iPad, the aptly-named "the new iPad." (a.k.a. "iPad 3.") Is it worth the upgrade?

Around the same time Google Fiber applied for permission to sell TV services in the Kansas City area; is this a sign that they'll offer up TV services to its Google Fiber customers - in direct competition with providers Time Warner, SureWest,  and AT&T? And will Google know what you want to watch before you've even turned on the TV? 

Probably.

And then there's everyone's favorite "free we-can't-live-without-it-but-we'll-complain-when-they-change-anything" service: Facebook. Are you ready for "timeline?"

Monday on Up to Date guest host Stephen Steigman welcomes the Techsperts, Dustin Jacobsen and Justin Parlette to discuss these items and other technology news and development.
