Ahead of 'The Force Awakens", CNET Senior Editor Rich Trenholm has watched every Star Wars film, so you don't have to.

What's the best way to watch Star Wars? As "Episode VII" looms larger than a Wookiee that's just lost a game of space chess, CNET UK podcast regular Rich Trenholm has been experimenting with the hallowed "Machete Order" of enjoying the Star Wars films. Hit play below to hear what he's learned about this quirky, nerdy concept -- which completely obliterates "The Phantom Menace" from the galactic timeline.

Blasters safely stowed, the UK's greatest tech podcast will also be chatting about Google's new Star Trek-style wearable concept and the aggravating news that Dell has been selling PCs that have a worrying security flaw.

In other news, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin rocket has made history, touching the edge of space before landing back on Earth in one piece. Finally we round off the show with your answers to the question, "What would make you switch to a Windows Phone?" in honour of our review of the first Lumia smartphone powered by Windows 10.
