How the Web was nearly the Mesh in podcast 380

It's 25 years since great Briton Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web, so we wax nostalgic about the early Internet and arguing over the phone.

It's 25 years since great Briton Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web and nearly called it the Mesh, so we wax nostalgic about the early Internet, whether it's arguing with Mum over the phone bill or jacking in with the cyberpunk novels of the 1990s.

Plus we check out button-bashing Xbox 'bot-blaster Titanfall, now broadcasting your gameplay on Twitch -- and we look forward to the 'olidays with the first 4G roaming from EE.

And we catch up on the latest on the Samsung Galaxy S5.
