Hey, Bubblenauts! It's the second episode of CNET.co.uk's new gadget show, set aboard a little Bubble Ship, floating in space. This week we investigate the gluttonous power consumption of modern gadgets and prove that 'digital' doesn't necessarily mean 'more advanced'.
We also take a look at a laptop encased in bamboo and kick one particularly obnoxious mobile phone out of the airlock, where it explodes into a billion shards of ill-conceived plastic resin.
Climb aboard the Space Bubble, a geostationary satellite high above the surface of Earth, crewed by a solitary pilot -- driven near insane by his obsession with the trappings of consumer capitalism. To the stars! -CS
