Crave Podcast 89: The Jesus phone, resurrected

Podcast 89 is in the hizzouse! Rory, Shannon, Rupert and the phonemeister Andrew Lim hit the studio to discuss -- among other things -- the launch of the 3G iPhone

Podcast 89 is in the hizzouse! We're bringing all the hottest tech news, plus the hottest tech stars, together for the hottest podcast in the frickin' world. Rory, Shannon, Rupert and the phonemeister Andrew Lim hit the studio to discuss -- among other things -- the launch of the 3G iPhone.

You're probably baffled by all the iPhone coverage this week, so we've decided to talk you through it all, step by step. We discuss the hardware, software, pros, cons, and give you all the minor deets that'll help you decide whether Jobsy's got it right this time.

If the iPhone isn't your cup of cocoa, don't fret, 'cos we've got other news, too. Like the Wii Fit girl shaking her... hips to YouTube stardom. Then there's the news that Vodafone has had its wrists slapped by the Advertising Standards Agency for misleading the public. About time, too.

This week's hands-on Crave segment is worth checking out. We're the first in the UK to get an Eee PC 901 and an Elonex webbook, and we're not hesitating to spill the beans. Since we've got Andrew in the studio, we also take the time to discuss Nokia's answer to the Jesus phone, which is -- apparently -- just around the corner.

We finish the show with an interesting conundrum: is addiction to Internet pornography more socially acceptable than addiction to online games? A leading psychiatrist seems to think so, but opinion in the studio is divided.

What do you think? Listen to the show by right-clicking this link, or subscribe in iTunes, and leave us your feedback in the Crave Podcast Lounge forum. You'll find the previous 88 efforts here. Until next week, friends. -Rory Reid
