Cortana vs Siri and Point Break's remake in CNET UK podcast 435

Little hand says its time to rock and roll as we explore the record industry's love-hate relationship with YouTube.

Can the remake of 1991's "Point Break" capture the 100 per cent pure adrenaline of the original, starring Keanu Reeves (left) and the late Patrick Swayze? 20th Century Fox

Cortana is taking the war of words to Siri's home turf, Amazon amazes us with its tax return, and we find out why the record industry has a love-hate relationship with YouTube.

Microsoft is challenging Apple's voice-activated personal assistant Siri by bringing its own voice control system Cortana to iPhones, not to mention Android devices too. It's all part of the build-up to Windows 10, but will iPhone owners switch allegiance?

Amazon is changing the way it operates in Europe to pay more taxes in individual countries, ending its much-criticised wheeze of exploiting the tax haven of Luxembourg. See, big companies? Tax doesn't have to be taxing.

We find out about Jonny Ive's new job and take a moment to ponder what went wrong with Google Glass. Plus, we get radical with the first trailer for the new, extreme sport-packed remake of classic surfing bro-down . Can a post-bailout anti-capitalist theme and spectacular wingsuit action replace the Keanu/Swayze relationship? And finally, we hear your thoughts on the record industry's love-hate relationship with YouTube.
