CNET UK Podcast 274: Is the Internet killing television?

Kodak is kaput and the Internet is killing television -- and the Olympics will kill the Internet. But the good news is The Phantom Menace is back!

When the return of Jar Jar Binks is the best news of the week, you know things are looking bleak. There'll be no more Kodak moments as the legendary brand ends a century of making cameras, while the government warns that this summer's London Olympics could bring the Internet to its knees

Meanwhile no news is bad news when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S3. The hotly tipped Android powerhouse is expected to be the world's thinnest smart phone , but when will it arrive? Not in March , sadly.

Another Samsung Galaxy is the most popular story on CNET UK this week, as Sammy mocks Apple with an advert featuring him out of The Darkness and a man being shot out of a cannon. Weren't expecting that, were you?

In Crave, we attempt to become one with the force and persuade Judgement Yoda which is the top tech of the week. Money is no object as we seek to master the force. Rich states the case for The Phantom Menace and the Star Wars movies in 3D . Andy takes things a bit more seriously with the Nikon D800 36.3-megapixel behemoth, and Natasha gets catty with a feline phone-fueller .

And we examine how our viewing habits have changed in the online world. With iPlayer, 4oD, Netflix, LoveFilm and iTunes to choose from, what do we ened up watching? And which of the podcast team names The Good Life as their favourite programme?

And we ask for your thoughts on online telly, Star Wars and Top Trumps. Keep the feedback coming in the comments or on our Facebook page

Finally, Otamatone sees us off with his review of the BlackBerry Bold 9790. See you next week!
