CNET UK Podcast 129: Is Google helping burglars?

This week on the CNET UK Podcast, we talked about the best April Fool gags we'd seen and interviewed a former burglar to find out if they really could use Google StreeView to help rob your house

This week, Ian, Nate and Flora investigate Facebook posting torrent links and a new console-free games console. There was also the usual feedback from our forums and the results of our weekly Twitter poll.

We also talked new anti-piracy adverts with a (change of) heart, and interviewed ex-criminal Michael Fraser about how Google StreeView could help criminals.

WTF
This week we talked April Fools and each picked out our favourite. It has to be said, Flora's pick, the Qualcomm video, is possibly one of the best things we've ever seen. Nate took a like to the Google Pigeon, a project for doing something with winged rats. And Google scored again with Ian, who really enjoyed CADIE and all the little viral mentions of pandas Google threw into the mix.
