Episode 29: The US Navy, Samsung & Your Mum

In this week's episode of the show, your heroic trio discuss the US Navy's decision to shell out $9m for Microsoft to continue supporting Windows XP for them and what exactly went on in the early 2000s to cause everyone to refuse to move on from XP.

After a huge — and uncharacteristic — discussion about Microsoft for a change, the gang talk about their latest woes in trying to force their respective parents to upgrade their technology so that it will actually function, which inexplicably leads to a conversation about how washing machines are confusing as hell.

Episode 28: Get Your Salt Shakers Out Now

Taylor Swift is in the news again, although this time it's not of the InfoSec variety. Taylor decided to write an open letter to Apple voicing concerns for independent artists with Apple's soon-to-be launched streaming service. Apple relented with their payment plans, but why? The gang try and untie the subject without avoiding the elephant in the room.

Your heroic trio also discuss advertising and the problems facing publishers and end-users on the web in light for the news that Safari and mobile Safari will block ads by default and Apple's iOS 9 'News' looks set to be largely ad-free.

Episode 25: Maslow's Monkey Bars Of Needs

This week everyone has a new Apple device... in fact, Richard has two because he's the most ridiculous. Mark's Apple Watch was delivered three weeks early, beating both (yes, both) of Richard's new Macs. Simon also dropped the cash on his beloved 15" Retina MacBook and he's as overjoyed as you'd expect.

We talk through the pros, cons, delights, and teething problems of our new purchases in a longer than usual episode.

A selfie stick incident causes a ceremonial burning of Mark and Richard's technology, and despite that everyone is in agreement that the EU is a bigger villain than the rogue selfie stick after drumming up a legal case against Google over … shopping!? Really?

This week on the show the gang try to find their favourite Ted Cruz domain name to buy, descend into no topic in particular, and talk about their upcoming trip to the Úll Conference in Ireland.

This week resulted in some issues with Mark's audio, we apologise for his robotic voice and assure you neither Simon, nor Richard have murdered him and replaced him with a Android. Although come to think of it, a robot would be cheaper and less annoying.

Episode 13: Darn The Cabinets

Due to a distinct lack of interesting news this week's episode is brought to you by everyone's favourite pal: improv.

After a brief mention of the FCC's net neutrality ruling and an assessment of Samsung's mobile handset business — on the heels of the new Galaxy S6 — things get... interesting.

Remember the 90s? Yeah, we do too, unfortunately. We talk about the 90s web, the necessity for lossless audio (but not in the way you're thinking), and we decide to reinvent the filesystem for the worse... exclusively for iOS 6. Oh yeah, you heard right, and it's as insane as you may well imagine.

Episode 12: Stronger Than The Wood Itself

In a week where Simon and Richard overcome their respective illnesses, Mark has a minor health scare, so it's business as usual for this week's episode of Technically Correct.

Lenovo's adware/bloatware package known as 'Superfish' has landed them in hot water, as they seemingly chose to compromise the security of their customers and then continually lie about the fact in proceeding allegations.

Elsewhere, two UK banking apps decide to adopt Touch ID and the BBC turns into scaremongering babies at the prospect, details of the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy 6 leak, and 9to5Mac tracks a cluster of Apple's hires that can only seem to point to one thing.

Stick around for a doozy of an after-show conversation wherein we're all off to buy a Peugeot.
