4G is coming to your phone, the Internet is heading for the Tube, and the new iPad is transforming lives left, right and centre. We're living in the future! So why is everything a bit rubbish?
That's the question we're pondering as the CNET UK team gathers in our hovering podcast bubble at CNET Towers to give the technology world a right old slap in the chops. In this episode, Rich, Andy and Luke discuss the coming of 4G, Wi-Fi on the London Underground, and the collapse of Game and what it means for gamers.
In the Crave section of the podcast, we each pick our favourite gadget that's caught our eye this week. Andy rates the Acer Aspire Timeline U M3 ultrabook, Luke looks at the Tag Heuer Racer luxury Android phone, and Rich waxes nostalgic at the prospect of Project Barcelona, an online shop for classic BBC telly. But there can be only winner of the Crave kudos, decided each week by a mysterious gadget-obsessed arbiter of Crave-worthy kit. This week we're looking to impress Judgement Des'ree.
