CNET UK Podcast 123: The good and bad of Twitter

This week Ian, Nate and Rich discussed Pioneer leaving the TV market, satellites crashing into each other and the ups and downs of the latest social-networking craze

This week on the CNET UK Podcast, Ian, Nate and Rich discussed the news and cool stuff they've got their hands on.

It wasn't a good start to Thursday, with Pioneer announcing it will pull out of TV production. As if that wasn't bad enough, we found out that satellites are colliding with each other in orbit. In happier news, Her Majesty the Queen decided to re-launch her official Web site. She did all the coding herself, and is rumoured to have learnt PHP for the project.

Eidos, one of the UK's biggest games companies, announced it would be bought by Japanese publisher Square Enix. We assume Lara Croft will get tentacles and a cat tail any minute. Amazon, meanwhile, announced the second version of its e-book reader, the Kindle. It won't be available in the UK just yet though, which is annoying. We also discussed lying politicians, but that's hardly news, is it?

Cravings came from Ian's silent Xbox 360, Nate's 3D cinema and Rich's Marvel comics on iTunes.

Our special feature this week centred around our week of Twitter coverage. We discussed the good and bad points of the service, and who we would and wouldn't be following. In case you feel the need to follow this week's podcast team, you can find Nate, Rich and Ian on the service. CNET UK has a feed too, which keeps you updated on all things CNET.
