iPhone 5, iOS 6 Maps and the new thin PS3 in Podcast 306

iOS 6 has arrived, and brought a right old map scrap, so we ask: is it time to kill software updates completely?

Anyone relying on Apple's new iOS 6 Maps app might find themselves lost -- lost in a storm of controversy. As iOS 6 arrives to mixed reaction, we decide whether software updates are more trouble than they're worth.

Join the CNET UK team as we break out our map and compass and venture down to the podcast studio to discuss the burning technology questions of this week.

Rich, Andy and Luke get all excited about the top tech of the week, including the HTC 8X and HTC 8S Windows Phone phones, and the new slim Sony PlayStation 3.

Plus, we turn to you, eager listener, for your thoughts in the feedback section. Do you feel cheated by the coming of 4G if you've just bought a new phone? What do you think of the Samsung ad extracting the proverbial out of Apple fans? And which is the better buy: the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or the iPhone 5?

Remember, whether you're looking for help and advice with your newest or oldest gadgets, or you have something to say on the tech issues of the day, leave us a comment below or blow off steam on our Facebook page -- it's chock-full of like-minded gadget fans, as well as behind-the-scenes glimpses at life in CNET Towers.

This week, inspired by a listener in Australia, we're looking for the most far-flung podcast listener. Drop us a line and tell us where you are, and we'll send a coveted podcast badge to whoever's listening furthest away!
