On this week’s podcast we discuss developments surrounding Mobile World Congress, including Nokia’s 41-megapixel cameraphone, Samsung’s projector-phone and Microsoft’s loosening of the Windows Phone 7 hardware requirements. We also discuss the ethics of content-sharing sites such as Pinterest, and our hot hardware candidate is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7.
This week we kick over Canonical’s plans to run Ubuntu on smartphones; Google’s rapped knuckles over cookie privacy violations; the integration of Microsoft’s SkyDrive service into Windows 8; and an extended lifespan for Vista and Windows 7. Our hot hardware candidate is Samsung’s hulking Series 7 Gamer laptop.
So we have recently tried to start using Adobe Creative Suite CS5.5 on our new iMacs at work, and it is a complete disaster. Adobe Dreamweaver is so buggy that it can’t even open and close without crashing. Once open, it sometimes allows you to close it, and sometimes not. The Preferences menu seems to be permanently greyed out.
The Adobe forums appear to have hundreds of users with the same problems – cannot quit, no preferences and Adobe doing nothing. And people wonder why we still use Visual Studio 2010 on our Macs – because it is blooming brilliant in comparison to the Adobe rubbish!
On this week’s podcast: we discuss SOCA’s take-down of an alleged piracy site, Apple’s investigation into factory working conditions, Ofcom’s anti-”broadband slamming” proposals and more details of Windows 8 on ARM. Our hot hardware candidate is a cardboard box. No, really.
In this week’s podcast the team discusses BT’s plans to offer fibre broadband on demand; Google’s beta arelease of Chrome for Android; a fake Twitter account targeting Tesco bank customers; and Sony’s disastrous $2.9bn losses. Our hot hardware candidate is the Nokia Lumia 710 smartphone.
On the show this week: Sky opens up Anytime+ and declares a fibre broadband price war, Symantec’s pcAnywhere falls victim to a hack attack and Apple goes to Dixons for retail advice. Meanwhile, Megaupload nears the giant Recycle Bin in the sky, and Microsoft’s Outlook makes a bid for Hot Web App of the Week.
