Welcome to another weekly look at the Northwest technology scene with "Talkin' Tech."

This week, the top story was more international in nature: we take a look at how Twitter once again provided journalists with its first look at a big breaking news story - in this case, last week's deadly 7.0 earthquake in Haiti. Twitter was also the primary conduit in the first 24-48 hours after the quake for word to get out regarding the need for supplies and donations.

We also take a look at how Amazon customers are voting with negative reviews regarding the initial lack of support for a Kindle version of the gossipy new political best-seller, "Game Change." 

Nintendo decides to join the Netflix bandwagon for videogame consoles, and Tracy Gorgas, our Resident Gaming Addict (of the game review blog of the same name) takes a look at the new Legend of Zelda title for the Nintendo DS, Spirit Tracks.

Please click on the video link and don't forget to join me every Thursday night at 7:20 p.m. Pacific (repeat at 8:20 a.m. Friday) for Talkin' Tech.
