Who knows why anyone at AU (after their first week of freshman year) would need a map to get around campus, but unfortunately, Apple Maps tripped up Josh in his effort to make it to the studio. But once we got past that snafu, we put together this very informative episode of Tech tAUk.
Check out the teaser ad for this episode for a preview!
Our tech headlines this week:

ATV’s own self-proclaimed Steve Jobs fanboy Geet Jeswani joins Doug to talk about his experience camping out overnight for the launch of the iPhone 5, and offers a live review of the new device.
Josh talks about the recent provocative YouTube movie that has created an uproar in the Middle East, and has led to a renewed debate between the protection of freedom of speech on the internet, and the concerns of free speech inciting violence.
Doug is then joined by Patrick Dillon, who reviews the new documentary Side By Side, which looks at the divide between emerging digital cinematography and traditional film cinematography.
And after another “Are You Sirious?” inquiry to Siri, our Viral Video of the Week is simple and amusing: a bulldog jumping on a trampoline.
