Sony Project Morpheus

The biggest news this week was Google's move into wearables with its Android Wear operating system, so that's first up on this week's podcast. With voice recognition, fancy menus designed to be easy to see on your wrist and fitness tracking, there's a chance it could be just the kick-start smart watches need.

Google gets the second spot too for launching its Chromecast video streamer in the UK. At just £30, this simple device puts iPlayer, Netflix and Google's video services on any TV with an HDMI port. We chat about its significance and how it compares to the competition.

The iPhone 5C is suddenly £40 cheaper, but there's a catch. To get the lower price, you need to buy the 8GB version of the phone. Is that enough storage? We discuss.


Sony gets points for the coolest-looking product this week. Project Morpheus is Sony's name for its new virtual reality headset that works with the PlayStation 4. Looking rather Tron-esque and competing with the Oculus Rift, we have a natter about its chances.

We mention a few other stories in passing, here are the links in case you want to read more:
