UK government blocks porn in Podcast 349

The government wants to block online porn -- but will it work? Down with this sort of thing!

Down with this sort of thing! The UK government has decided that you have to ask permission to watch porn -- but will a porn filter work?

We take a closer look David Cameron's plans to have your broadband provider filter pornographic photos and video, unless you opt-in to viewing such smut. Is Cameron's grotblock a great way of protecting children from seeing things they're not ready for, or a technologically ill-thought-out grab for votes?

Plus, Google launches a new Google Nexus 7, Amazon scraps free delivery, and Apple hands back four grand to a horse-loving eight-year-old.

We ponder the Ubuntu Edge, a new phone that wants £21.5m of your money. And we wade into your questions: should Nokia ape Apple or simulate Samsung? Are we about to see a battery revolution? And what's the correct way to eat a scone?
