Wearable gadgets, streaming TV and smart toothbrushes -- in podcast 379 we talk about our favourite tech trends of 2014.

Standing in for the esteemed Rich Trenholm, myself, Jason Jenkins and Nick Hide will be explaining our favourite trends -- from swanky wearable gadgetry to decent streaming TV for the UK, via a toothbrush that knows more about your life than you do.

We'll also be powering through the latest tech news, including Apple's ambitious attempt to worm its way into your car's dashboard, and Microsoft's rumoured Siri rival, reportedly named Cortana. Y'know, like in Halo.
