Google Nexus 4, Comet and £50 lightbulbs in Podcast 312

Have the Google Nexus 4 and Google Nexus 10 ushered in a new era of wallet-friendly prices for our favourite gadgets?

Have the Google Nexus 4 and Google Nexus 10 ushered in a new era of wallet-friendly prices for our favourite gadgets? We certainly hope so.

To answer this question and many more, join the CNET UK team as we pipe the latest technology news and opinions directly into your earsockets. We mull over how Comet has got itself in trouble, and wonder when is Android not Android with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. Plus we celebrate the low-key launch of the Nexus pair as we banish overblown product announcements to permanent deletion -- and we're dazzled by some really expensive lightbulbs

And we have a new feature: in Kickstart My Heart we highlight a crazy idea calling for your hard-earned cash, as Kickstarter opens to UK projects. The first thing we want to tell you about is in fact the very first project to be approved from the UK, and what we like about it is that it has a Raspberry Pi at its heart. It's called the Picade, and it's an awesome little retro gaming cabinet for your desk. Would you invest?

And we turn to you, esteemed listener, for your feedback. Will the Surface see a surfeit of apps arrive for Windows and Windows Phone 8? Has the Google Nexus 10 just killed every Android tablet? And what does Sir Jony Ive's new role at Apple mean for the look and feel of the next iPhone and iPad?

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 in CNET Towers.
