CNET UK podcast 479: Dyson's pricey hairdryer, the music industry survives streaming and 'Captain America: Civil War'

The Dyson Supersonic reinvents the humble hairdryer -- but costs just shy of £300. We debate its merits, plus all the week's biggest tech news and our thoughts on the new Marvel movie.


Phwooar! (Is the sound it makes, written phonetically.)

Dyson's found another outlet for its air-pushing technology, giving the hairdryer a radical makeover. It's the week's weirdest-looking gadget and it's up for discussion on the UK's greatest tech podcast. Don't worry if you're not into hairdryers -- there's plenty more hot air where that came from.

Rich Trenholm and I get our minds around a new invention from the mind of mischievous music-maker There's also excitement around Nintendo games making their way to mobiles, the music industry records its best growth so far this century and the UK government spends £70,000 on Snapchat filters (but it's for a good cause).

Plus we've been to the movies to see the latest Marvel movie. Hear our (spoiler-free) thoughts on "Captain America: Civil War" on this week's show, then check out our full written review, find out who new character Black Panther is, and -- when you've seen the movie but not before -- we've got a video where we discuss the biggest spoilers and plot points from the film.
