Episodes

  • It’s a very Echo Christmas [S14E02]

    22 December 2016  |  Season 14  |  48 mins 56 secs

    This week the team talk about Amazon’s smash-hit home assistant ‘things’ - the Echo and the Dot - and the on-board personality Alexa. We think they’ll sell by the ton this holiday season and wonder why we enjoy them so much compared to Siri. We discuss how we use them, the extra ’skills’ you can add and setting up simple home automation. WARNING - we say ‘Alexa’ a lot this episode so mute your Echo!

  • Pop goes the phablet [S14E01]

    The team are back, now only two-thirds London-based. Ewan provides in-depth coverage of whether it gets cold in Denmark in winter and we (eventually) turn our attention to the fall-out from Samsung’s disastrous Galaxy Note 7 launch. Is the Samsung brand terminally damaged, did they do the right thing and will consumers trust them again after months of negative press coverage?
