Crave Podcast 105: The Great Game Robbery

It's podcast friday, y'all! Episode 105 is brought to you by Rory Reid, Ian Morris and newcomer Marian Smith. Don't adjust your podcatchers, there's nothing wrong with her voice -- she's just American

It's podcast Friday, y'all! Episode 105 is brought to you by Rory Reid, Ian Morris and newcomer Marian Smith. Don't adjust your podcatchers, there's nothing wrong with her voice -- she's just American.

This week's 'cast includes the shocking revelation that Rowan Trollope -- head of Symantec's anti-virus products -- uses an Apple MacBook, not a Windows PC. In the comments we've had, some people agree with Rowan, some don't. What we can't explain is why some bloggers have begun cussing Rory's dad.

Next up, we report on the games industry's version of the great train robbery. Police this week seized and impounded a truck carrying 16,000 stolen PlayStation 3 games -- then promptly had them pinched again. In other gaming news, we've got wind of a new Internet game designed to raise awareness about victims of war in Uganda, but is it all the designers intended it to be?

Elsewhere, a French company has been demonstrating a new interactive music device that reads listeners' minds, Norway is suing Apple for restricting use of iTunes to iPods, and we've got word on the PlayStation 4.

It wouldn't be a Crave Podcast if we didn't go hands-on with some hot new gadgets, so it's no surprise we're fingering the MSI Wind, Onkyo's HTX-22HD sound system, and discussing Samsung's new NC10 netbook.

We then answer a bunch of questions posed by visitors to our forums, and launch unapologetically into the WTF of the week. This time, it's nothing to do with Japanese scientists, but rather crazy Australians who've invented a new suit you can wear while having a shower. Apparently it'll clean itself without soap, dry cleaning or soaking. Why? Why not?
