Galaxy Note 8, Siri on Android, BlackBerry 10 in Podcast 323

Siri, BlackBerry 10 and the Firefox phone square up to Android while Windows 8 skyrockets in price.

Is 2013 the year of the underdog operating system? BlackBerry 10 , Windows Phone 8 and Firefox OS are all set for a watershed year, but can any of them really tackle the iPhone and Android?

And we discuss the week's tech news, including more record Apple profits, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 , the ridiculously-named Galaxy Fonblet , and the secret origin of Siri . Plus our trusty friend Otamatone is his usual verbose self as he reviews the new Canon EOS M .

And we turn to you -- yes, you with the ears -- for your comments in the feedback section. Does Apple price its products too high? Does anyone want a BlackBerry PlayBook? Why has no-one heard of the Google Nexus 7 ? Unlimited slower broadband or limited faster speed? And who'd win in a cage fight between Bert from The Raccoons and Deputy Fuzz from Bravestarr?
