Episode 55: Chosen By The Caching Fairy

Everyone loves the Internet. But what happens when it doesn’t go as planned? This week sees the hosts discussing Steam’s authentication glitches that occurred over the Christmas period, including bonus thoughts about two-factor authentication. This leads, somehow, to us thinking carefully about how many Things we want the Internet in. (Spoiler alert: it’s not as many as the industry seems to think).

Finally, we round off with Mark discussing how he was cornered into going against all of his beliefs about the cloud. Needs must, as they say, but did it Just Work?

Episode 54: Wearing The Ball Of Shame

Mark is back to full fitness to return to the helm of the good ship Tech Correct for episode, 54 and complain about Apple's Industrial Design — or lack thereof — again, this time in the form of Apple's iPhone 6/6S battery case. Done with Apple, the gang spend the rest of the show discussing George Hotz, who is trying (and succeeding to some degree) to build a self-driving car to rival those of Tesla and Google. He seems a little nuts, but there is a gem of a good idea underlying it all.

Episode 51: Tending Towards Chips

This week Mark, Simon, and Richard discuss the possibility of Apple removing the 3.5mm audio jack on the iPhone. How likely is it to really happen? How similar a scenario is it to the removal of the 30-pin connector in favour of Lightning?

Along the way discussion deviates to Bluetooth and its general awfulness, Bluetooth speakers and headphones, and the connected home.

Episode 50: Look At Me, I’m A General Purpose Computer

It's been over five years since the iPad emerged as the next big thing for general purpose computing, and now Apple have released the iPad Pro to add to their growing iPad lineup. But what is it for? And not just that, what is the iPad Air for? And while we're at it, the iPad Mini as well!

Rather than using the traditional hearsay and hyperbole method, which now seems to be the standard adopted by the tech press whenever discussing Apple's tablet business, your hosts argue that case that Apple may well be sleeping at the wheel a bit when it comes to the iPad. Simon, Richard, and Mark are all of the opinion that the iPad and iOS are having somewhat of an extended identity crisis, but do you agree, dear listener? Let us know what you think.

With Mark away this week, it's left to Simon and Richard to blow the dust off the Forbidden Topic™: building your own PC.
