CNET UK Podcast 266: We talk tech habits with Jon Bentley

We talk to The Gadget Show's Jon Bentley about activities that tech has made obsolete in this week's casting of the pod.

What are the daily habits and activities we no longer embark upon thanks to new technology? That's the question we're asking in our feature this week, in a chat with The Gadget Show's Jon Bentley.

But that's not all! Rich, Andy and Luke get their debating faces on to untangle the sinister web that is the week's tech happenings, filling your ears with news that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus volume bug is fixed at last, and that we could be seeing the Amazon Kindle Fire hitting the UK in January.

We also discuss OnLive coming to tablets, and the week's most-read story on the site -- that Orange is hiking its prices.

We talk about the killer videos we've been producing, including iOS vs Android, the top five phones as voted for by you (you'll never guess which mobile didn't make the grade) and a chilling look at what happens to abandoned technology once the lights go out...

In Crave we argue whether the new Xbox dashboard is better than the Orange San Francisco 2, or whether both should kneel before Norte Photoblocker, a beer cooler that saves you from drunken humiliation with a blinding flash of light.

Finally we'll be rounding off with another stack of your brilliant feedback -- keep your questions and comments coming via our Facebook page.
