Will.i.am goes wearable and the S5 arrives in CNET UK Podcast 384

As the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Gear smartwatches hit shops, rapper Will.i.am is showing off his own secret wearable tech. Plus we bid a fond farewell to Windows XP, and find out how Game of Thrones has broken the Internet -- again.


As the Samsung Galaxy S5, Gear 2 smartwatch and Gear Fit sports band hit shops, novelty rapper Will.i.am is showing off his own secret wearable gadget. As we check out the S5's most important features we ask whether one plucky Black-Eyed Pea can take on the might of Samsung?

Meanwhile, Microsoft has pulled the plug on Windows XP. Your computer won't suddenly stop working, but from now on it's more vulnerable to malware as no-one's working to fix loopholes any more. Check if you're one of the millions still running XP at amirunningxp.com -- and celebrate XP's passing with the latest episode of Adventures in Tech!

Plus, we ask why Heartbleed has put the whole Internet in danger, why Toyota has recalled 6 million cars, and why the new series of "Game of Thrones" left fans feeling worse than a Khaleesi who can't find her dragons.

And last but by no means least we find out what you folks in listenerland are saying with feedback. Tell us what you think of the show and the rest of the week's technology news at Facebook.com/CNET or Twitter.com/CNET.
