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.
