This week’s GigaOM Weekly Wrapup podcast highlights some of the biggest tech news of past few days, starting with T-Mobile’s newest industry shakeup. It’s a phone upgrade program called Jump and Kevin Fitchard explains why it’s not necessarily a bad deal. Jeff Roberts dissects impacts from the Apple e-book verdict, while Signe Brewster sheds light on what it’s really like to use a 3-D printer.

On the GigaOM Chrome Show, Chris Albrecht and Kevin Tofel share a list of 30 MMO games you can play in the Chrome browser; they even work on Chromebooks. Games are fun, but other apps are likely going to improve for Chrome OS devices as well as the Chrome browser: Google has a half-dozen new APIs to make Packaged Apps behave more like native software.

Rounding out the weekly podcasts is the Internet of Things Show, where Stacey Higginbotham interviews Linden Tibbets, the CEO and co-founder of IFTTT (If This, Then That). IFTTT just arrived for iPhone users and lets practically anyone automate different actions.
