This week the team discuss:
- A German artist's (successful) attempt to 'hack' Google Maps traffic data with a cart of 2nd hand phones, tricking the mapping service into reporting a traffic jam on an empty road.
- Customer 'outrage' at Sonos's announcement that some older devices will soon be unsupported and prevent newer devices from receiving upgrades if used together. This came shortly after the firm was criticised for 'bricking' devices people chose to recycle.
- The announcement of the end of mobile handset manufacturing under the Blackberry brand. The team reminisce about the firm at their best and how Blackberry changed mobile email.
