The long wait for Star Wars is over at last. As "The Force Awakens" blasts into cinemas worldwide, this week's episode of the UK's best tech podcast offers a spoiler-free review of the long-anticipated Episode VII.

Meanwhile there's more drama for the increasingly popular "hoverboard" gadgets, as Amazon UK tells some customers to bin their self-balancing scooters, over safety concerns concerning certain devices.

As if that wasn't enough, there's a creepy Tinder robot that takes you love life into its disembodied hand. And you'll hear a tease for our look back at the year 2015 in tech. We've embedded the video below for your convenience.
