CNET UK Podcast 298: Apple v Samsung, 4G and the Olympics

We're getting into the Olympic spirit by pitting the cream of today's technology against each other.

The London 2012 Olympics kick off today -- no really, you'd think someone would have mentioned it. Despite possessing the athletic capacity of a broken fridge, the CNET UK podcast is getting into the Olympic spirit by pitting the cream of today's technology against each other in our gadget Olympiad.

Which products lead the race in various categories -- including tablets, TVs and cameras -- and what qualities make them medal-worthy?

We also point you in the direction of the cool stuff on CNET UK this week, including the week's Phone News featuring Jelly Bean and more 4G plans. In Crave, Andrew exhausts his options with the iXoost Formula 1 iPod dock, Katie mixes it up with the MakerBot MixTape, and Rich is the man who can with the Canon EOS M. But which bit of kit claims the top spot on the podium?

And we turn to you, esteemed listener, for your feedback. Can Apple and Samsung ever be friends again? What's the best way to get Internets in the country? New iPhone or slightly older Galaxy S2? Frazzles or Scampi Fries?

Whether your gadgets are playing up and you need some advice, or you've got an opinion to share about the technology issues of the day, leave us a comment below or have your say on our Facebook page -- it's full of folks who love gadgets as much as you do, plus you'll get plenty of behind-the-scenes glimpses at life at CNET Towers.
