CNET UK Podcast 241: Feast your ears on our brand new sound!

The CNET UK discusses sockscriptions, the Internet in a suitcase, Sky on your iPad and the latest trend for technology biographies -- oh, and there's badges, and new music.

The CNET UK Podcast 241 is a two-fer-one of up to the minute technology news and aural delights as we unveil an exciting new sound. We asked you guys in listener-land what you'd like to hear in the podcast, and our new theme and musical stings are the results. They're very much a work in progress, so let us know what you think in the comments or on our Facebook page, and help us evolve into the pinnacle of podcast perfection.

In between stings, we take a look at the latest trend for nerd stories, discover how you can carry the Internet in a suitcase, and offer you the chance to design your own CNET UK badge. It's like a Blue Peter badge, only way cooler.

In the news we learn how technology is tackling the problems of errant socks, mobile phones at gigs, and find out which is the most popular story on CNET UK this week.
