Crave Podcast 54: Touchscreens on trial

The show's packed with news of Wi-Fi-enabled buses, shopping trolleys that help you lose weight and the story of a man set on fire by his iPod

This week Rory, Ian, Kate and the legendary Rupert Goodwins combine to give you the greatest technology podcast that ever was. The show's packed to the rafters with news of Wi-Fi-enabled buses, high-tech shopping trolleys that help you lose weight and the story of a man whose lap 'region' was torched by his flaming iPod nano.

You begged for the return of The Trial, so we duly obliged. This week Rory and Ian square up to discuss the relative merits of touchscreen technology. Are they too inaccurate and grease-ridden to replace normal buttons? Or is their sheer coolness enough to win our hearts? Only Rupert Goodwins has the answer.

Click through to our podcast page, click the download link, fire up your speakers or enjoy us more discretely on your MP3 player. Either way -- we'll give your inner ear the time of its life. Don't say we're not good to you. Drop us a comment and let us know what you think. -Rory Reid
