  • Episode 71: The Internet of iPhone X (IoiX) Plus Apple Watch 3 and Apple TV announcements
    by UK Tech Weekly Podcast on 13th September 2017 at 3:41 pm

    This week it is all about Apple as the company announces its eagerly awaited iPhone X and iPhone 8/8 Plus smartphones, a new Apple watch (yawn) and Apple TV news. Macworld UK editor Karen Haslam is our host this week, as she chats to a distinctly unconvinced Dominic Preston about the latest iPhone, followed by David Price on the Apple Watch Series 3, which he likes but not as much as its predecessor. Then everyone piles in together to discuss the quite-good iPhone 8, the quite-late Apple TV 4K, and all the rest of the evening's festivities. […]

  • Episode 70 - The Internet of tricky surnames (IoTS) Uber's new CEO and new phone chat
    by UK Tech Weekly Podcast on 1st September 2017 at 9:17 am

    Scott Carey necessarily tries to get his pronunciation game on fleek to deliver the latest Uber news - there's a new CEO in town, and it isn't a woman. Should it have been? He tells Henry Burrell what's next for the company. Then roles are reversed as Henry updates Scott on the Galaxy Note 8, LG V30 and September 12's very own iPhone 8 - will it be called that? Will anyone spend £1,000 on it? […]

  • Episode 69 - The Internet of internal memos (IoIM) Google sexism row and iPhone 8 leaks
    by UK Tech Weekly Podcast on 11th August 2017 at 11:35 am

    Join Miriam Harris, David Price and Henry Burrell as they dissect the weird internal memo row at Google. Was a male engineer genuinely trying to help Google and make a point about the company being too Left, or is he just an arsehole? Then we describe the iPhone 8 dummy we received this week (take a look at it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRNIwh61j_E ) and the revelations that came from the Homepod firmware leak. We also debate the usefulness of an LTE Apple Watch and try to make puns work. Magic. […]

  • Episode 68 - The Internet of Motherzuckers (IoM) Snopes and AI fighting
    by UK Tech Weekly Podcast on 28th July 2017 at 3:07 pm

    Join Henry Burrell as he asks Davids Price why Snopes, the fact checking website, has run into trouble and how crowdfunding could save the day. Is it still important in this age of fake news? Then Scott Carey commentates on the bout between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk. Who knows the most about AI? When will the killer robots descend upon us? Does Mark do all his online Q & A’s in front of a cooking brisket? All this answered and more. […]

  • Episode 67 - The Internet of Netflix and chill (IoNaC) 100m subs, phone news and Google Glass returns
    by UK Tech Weekly Podcast on 21st July 2017 at 10:49 am

    A classic edition of the pod as we hark back to the hallowed three topic format. Henry Burrell hosts David Price, Scott Carey and Chris Martin to ask just how Netflix got so popular. Will it sustain it though? Windows Phone is also pretty much actually dead but the funeral march is long. Other phone stuff includes the hallowed iPhone 8, the demise of Vertu and Nokia not really being Nokia. David then tells us why Google Glass is back, what it means for the enterprise, and why didn't they realise the first time round that it wasn't a consumer play? […]
