Crave Podcast 73: Dancing on the grave of HD DVD

Drugs? Check. Microsoft action figures? Check. Laughing at an utterly dead format? You bet your backside, buddy. This is the Crave Podcast. That's how we roll

Crack open the Lambrini, it's Crave Podcast Friday! W00t! We're back with an extra-long episode this week as we toast the return of Rupert Goodwins and the arrival of a new section. No, we won't spoil the surprise, but suffice to say it involves HD DVD. And graves. And a bit of dancing.

We also bring you the best of this week's news, which includes word of an uber-cheap new laptop from Elonex. If you thought the Asus Eee PC was cheap, wait til you get wind of this thing -- it's a mere £99. At the other end of the performance spectrum, we talk you through the likelihood of computers becoming as intelligent as humans as early as the year 2029, and the prospect of electricity-generating clothes that recharge your iPod and mobile phone as you move around.

Naturally, we also take you through the lighter side of the tech world by bringing you not one, not two, but three separate WTFs. Drugs? Check. Microsoft action figures? Check. Stupid lamps that only weightlifters can use? You bet your backside, buddy. This is the Crave Podcast. That's how we roll.

Anyway, click this link thingy, kick back and we'll do the rest. You won't regret it. -Rory Reid
