CNET UK podcast 461: Apple's iPhone battery booster, VR drama and Millennium Falcon upkeep

Apple's blocky battery booster hasn't impressed everyone. We hear your thoughts, plus all the latest tech news on the newest episode of the CNET UK podcast.

Would you seal your iPhone inside Apple's blocky battery case?

Apple's official battery case has ruffled a few feathers -- is this blocky iPhone ensconcer a sensible way of extending your smartphone's lifespan, or should Tim Cook and pals simply have given the iPhone a bigger battery in the first place? We hash it out on this week's edition of the CNET UK Podcast.

But wait -- there's more! We're also chatting out delays to HTC's futuristic VR technology, and word that Apple Maps may be clawing back some of its respectability.

As "The Force Awakens" looms, we're also wondering how much it would really cost Han Solo to run the Millennium Falcon. And you'll hear a little tease for our luxurious feature that examines the enduring appeal of Mario. We've embedded the video below for your convenience.
