CNET UK Podcast 289: Celebrating the simpler things

With the sun out, we're celebrating the simpler things in life and catching up on the latest tech news -- such as the arrival of the Galaxy S3.

As a great man once said, life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. So we're celebrating the simpler things in life and casting out the technology that's just too complicated.

We kick off with the latest news on the Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC and Motorola's admission that Ice Cream Sandwich could ruin your phone, and a challenge to BT's superfast broadband plans.

And we're joined by a special guest: in her final week as a CNETeer, podcast producer Amie steps out from behind the mixing desk and joins Luke and Rich in front of the mic.

So join the CNET UK team as we hunker down in the podcast bunker and give the pressing technology matters of the week a good shoeing. Amie casts her eye back over her time with CNET to choose her favourite bit of technology from the past year or so, while Luke plays it safe with kids' mobile phone network Bemilo, and Rich dreams of laptops that charge as you type on them. Which bit of kit claims the Crave kudos and wins the day?

And we turn to you, honoured listener, for your feedback. What's our dream phone like? What are the best names for operating system updates? And what technology from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy would we love to own?

Whether you're looking for help with your gadgets or want to have your say about the tech issues of the day, leave us a comment below or speak out on our Facebook page -- it's peopled by peoples who love gadgets as much as you do, not to mention stuffed with lovely behind-the-scenes glimpses at the continuing excitement that is life at CNET Towers. Let us know what's your favourite simple gadget, and what technology is just too complex to use?
